Dolphins' Brandon Bolden: Returns to New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolden agreed Wednesday with the Patriots on a two-year contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Bolden spent the first six years of his career in New England before jumping to Miami in 2018. In his return to the Patriots, Bolden projects to receive most of his time on special teams, as the team already has more established running backs in Sony Michel, James White and Rex Burkhead under contract through 2020.

Dolphins' Brandon Bolden: One reception to cap season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolden caught his sole target for nine yards during Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Bills. He ends the season with eight rushes for 91 yards and two touchdowns, and three receptions for 13 yards and one touchdown.

Bolden remained in a depth role with the Dolphins all season, even after Frank Gore suffered a season-ending foot injury in Week 15, and only played 25 offensive snaps through 16 games. Most of Bolden's limited usage came in the red zone, allowing him to achieve slight fantasy value with three total touchdowns during the Dolphins' last four games. The 28-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and will remain squarely behind Kalen Ballage and Kenyan Drake on the depth chart if Miami chooses to re-sign him.

Dolphins' Brandon Bolden: Scores third touchdown of 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolden rushed four times for nine yards and caught his only target for four yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 17-7 loss to the Jaguars.

Bolden did all of his damage during the first quarter, reaching the end zone on a misdirection play in which Kenyan Drake attracted the attention of most of the Jaguars' defense. The 28-year-old appears to have earned the trust of Miami's coaching staff in the red zone, but he remains difficult to trust for fantasy purposes due to the scant number of touches he typically sees.

Dolphins' Brandon Bolden: Logs one carry in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolden rushed once for 12 yards during Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Vikings.

After scoring twice during a Week 14 win over the Patriots, Bolden's usage likely disappointed fantasy managers who picked him up as a waiver wire flier. Bolden did not earn an uptick in carries even after Frank Gore (knee) departed Sunday's loss in the first quarter due to a knee injury -- instead, rookie Kalen Ballage stepped up with 12 carries for 123 yards and a touchdown. Even if Gore is unable to suit up Week 16 against the Jaguars, it's unlikely that Bolden will receive a notable workload behind Ballage and Kenyan Drake.

Dolphins' Brandon Bolden: Burns old squad twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolden rushed twice for 60 yards and two touchdowns didn't net any yards on his sole reception in the Dolphins' 34-33 win over the Patriots on Sunday.

It's hard to say whether it was an intentional dig at Patriots coach Bill Belichick, but Bolden was coincidentally a pivotal part of the offense for a brief portion of the first half and incredibly found pay dirt on his only two carries. The veteran had toted the ball only once all season prior to Sunday, as his utility primarily comes on special teams. Despite his surprising success Sunday, it's difficult to envision Bolden having much of a consistent week-to-week role in a rushing attack that typically caps the touches of the top duo of Kenyan Drake and Frank Gore.
