Brandon Bolden (Beast or Bust)
Beast Dome Nation.
Tonight we analyze a special player. Someone who I ranked higher than any expert in my preseason rankings.
BRANDON BOLDEN – RB – NE
When I saw Brandon Bolden this preseason, I saw the next Benjarvus Green-Ellis. A younger more athletic version that has the chance of cracking the rotation, but more likely would be behind Ridley and Woodhead. Vereen was a threat, but his injury really pushed him towards the back. Because of that, I ranked Bolden #47 overall at the RB spot, when his Expert Consensus Ranking was #75.
After picking up a Vulture TD last week for Stevan Ridley. This week Bolden looked like a BEAST that could not be stopped against a Bills defense that was overwhelmed. Bolden rushed for 137 Yards and a TD on 16 carries. Ridley rushed 22 times for 106 Yards and 2 TDs. Bolden was the only one to have a reception between the two.
Moving forward, Bolden has earned more carries. He could see up to 10 a game, but it did not help that Woodhead ended up getting a 23 Yard TD through the air which should keep him in at the 3rd down role. Ridley is definitely the one to own moving forward, but if something were to have Stevan…
PREDICTION: BEAST. What makes Bolden so special is how talented he is. When players are as talented as this, they find their ways onto the field. While he may be semi-inconsistent with Ridley on the field, but if Ridley makes any errors or goes down. Bolden becomes MUST-START. It is possible Bolden does become the goal line back despite Ridley scoring two goal line TDs. Either way, find a roster spot for Bolden if you can.
