New England Patriots RB Brandon Bolden is officially active for Monday Night Football against the Houston Texans. It's the first game Bolden will suit up in nearly two months--he missed some time with a knee injury and was then hit with a four-game suspension for PED violations. The Patriots just activated him earlier on Monday.
Bolden created a stir in the fantasy world after getting 234 yards, two TDs and 5.4 YPC playing part time.
Fantasy Impact: Bolden's time in the sun was very brief, however, and he's fallen way off the fantasy radar. With Stevan Ridley entrenched as the starter and Shane Vereen doing a fine job as the backup, there's no clear role in the offense for him anymore.
Bolden has shown flashes of brilliance and has some promise, but re-draft owners shouldn't bother with him in the middle of the fantasy playoffs.
