Brandon Bolden fantasy status in doubt after missing practice Thursday

Kevin Hoffman-US PRESSWIRE

Brandon Bolden missed the media portion of Patriots practice on Thursday, according to reports. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon Bolden missed the media portion of Thursday's practice with the New England Patriots, according to Michael Vega of the Boston Globe. Bolden also sat out practice Wednesday, putting his playing status against the St. Louis Rams in doubt.

Thursday's practice was the team's last before they departed for London, making it unlikely that Bolden will play. The running back also missed the Pats' Week 7 matchup against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact: Unfortunately, by the time owners picked up Bolden off waivers, he injured his knee before he could be of any use. Bolden had 137 yards rushing in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills, and appeared to be on his way to fairly significant role within the Patriots' offense. Now it's unclear just what kind of impact he will have even when he returns healthy.

Stevan Ridley remains the only Pats running back worth owning in standard fantasy formats. Shane Vereen and Danny Woodhead are worth a look in deeper leagues, but they haven't done much to earn a regular starting role.
