Brandon Bolden comes out of nowhere for monster fantasy game

Brandon Bolden had a big coming-out party in a blowout win over the Bills. We break down the fantasy implications.

New England Patriots RB Brandon Bolden put himself on the fantasy map in a big Week 4 performance. Against the Buffalo Bills, Bolden rushed 16 times for 137 yards and a touchdown. He also added one reception for 11 yards as the Patriots walloped the Bills 52-28.

Fantasy Impact: The rookie back's performance pretty much came out of nowhere. Stevan Ridley is the established starter, and Shane Vereen was expected to be the primary backup but has missed time with an injury. After combining with Ridley for 245 rushing yards, Bolden will probably be moved ahead of Vereen on the depth chart, but it's impossible to tell what the Pats will do next. Bolden will be a hot waiver pickup this week as the Pats take on the Broncos in Week 5.
