Though Bolden saw only eight carries in Week 7 against the Jets' tough defense, he turned them into 36 yards and a score. He should again be a factor as the main pass-catching back in a timeshare with Stevan Ridley this week against a Miami team that's given up the fifth-most fantasy points to running backs -- largely on the strength of the 40 catches they've allowed for 366 yards out of the backfield.
That adds up to Bolden making for a nice PPR play this week as the Pats look to take out their anger from last week's loss to the Jets on another divisional foe. Bolden's had a five-catch game and a six-catch game this year, and could have another effort of that kind in Week 8, as Bill Belichick is always good at exploiting his foes' weaknesses.
