Brandon Bolden injury update: Missed practice hurts Week 10 fantasy chances

Rob Carr

Values go up for other Patriots running backs against awful Bills defense. We break down the fantasy implications.

The last time that Brandon Bolden faced the Bills he ran for 137 yards and a touchdown. He may not get that opportunity again this season. Bolden had a breakout game in Week 4, but hasn't been on the field since a Week 6 knee injury and a missed practice on Wednesday could keep him out for the Patriots rematch against the Bills this weekend.

This should increase the role of Shane Vereen against the number 31 defense in the league.

Fantasy Take: Seemed like Bolden could be the value add of the year after he ran over Buffalo, but that's the nature of the business. The Bills are 31st in scoring defense, 31st in rushing defense, 32nd in rushing touchdowns allowed, and 32nd in yards per carry allowed. They are the fantasy dream of the season.

This makes Stevan Ridley an easy RB1 and Vereen a sneaky RB2/flex play in Week 10.
