Brandon Bolden missed Patriots practice Tuesday: Fantasy implications

Otto Greule Jr

Brandon Bolden was not spotted at Patriots practice Tuesday, after being marked inactive Sunday against the New York Jets due to a knee injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon Bolden was not spotted at practice for the New England Patriots on Tuesday, according to the Boston Globe. He is apparently still dealing with a knee injury suffered in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks. Bolden was marked inactive for Sunday's win over the New York Jets.

Bolden's role within the Patriots' offense had increased substantially prior to the injury. He rushed for 191 yards and a touchdown on 30 carries over Weeks 4 and 5.

Fantasy Impact: There is still no official word yet on Bolden's status against the St. Louis Rams, and knowing the Patriots he will be mark with an unhelpful "questionable" tag Friday. It's unclear how many touches he would receive even if healthy, however, with Shane Vereen getting healthier.

Bolden is worth stashing on your bench just to see if he will take on his former workload once he is able to return to the field. Don't move him back into your starting lineup until you can confirm he will play a significant role, however.
