Brandon Bolden ruled out for Week 8 with knee injury: Fantasy implications

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE

Brandon Bolden has been ruled out for the Patriots' Week 8 matchup against the Rams in London due to a knee injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon Bolden has been ruled out for the New England Patriots' Week 8 game against the St. Louis Rams in London due to a knee injury, according to reports. Bolden was held out of practice all week, and has yet to play since suffering the injury against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 6.

The Patriots have a bye in Week 9, giving the running back an extra week to rest before the Patriots revisit his status for their Nov. 11 bout with the Buffalo Bills. Bolden has 45 carries for 214 yards and two touchdowns on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Bolden was a hot pickup off fantasy waivers after rushing for 137 yards against the Bills in Week 4. Owners haven't had much of a chance to cash in, however. The next week, Bolden rushed for 54 yards. Then he went on the shelf.

With Shane Vereen getting back up to speed and Stevan Ridley still running strong, it's hard to tell what kind of role Bolden will have once he is able to perform healthy. He isn't worth hanging onto in most fantasy formats.
