Bolden (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's AFC championship game against the Steelers. Bolden remains a core special-teamer for the Patriots, but given that he's clearly behind fellow RBs LeGarrette Blount, Dion Lewis and James White in the team's offense, he's off the fantasy radar.
Bolden (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC championship game against the Steelers. Though Bolden is a core special-teamer for the Patriots, his fantasy value is minimal given that he is behind fellow RBs LeGarrette Blount, Dion Lewis and James White in the team's backfield pecking order.
Bolden (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday. Bolden is a core special-teamer for the Patriots, but he's decidedly behind fellow RBs LeGarrette Blount, Dion Lewis and James White in the team's offense.
Bolden finished the 2016 regular season with one carry for four yards and two catches for 15 yards in 14 games for the Patriots. While his role in the team's offense all but vanished this past season, Bolden -- who turns 27 on Jan. 26 -- remained a core special-teamer for the Patriots in 2016. Bolden is eligible to become a free agent this offseason, but he'll be a candidate to re-sign with New England thanks to his versatility and experience in the team's system.
Bolden (knee) was on the field for just three out of the Patriots' 57 snaps on offense in Sunday's 27-16 win over the Steelers, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. In his return to action, Bolden did not record a carry or catch, though he was targeted once. Bolden remains a key special-teamer, but his fantasy value is limited as long as both LeGarrette Blount and James White remain healthy.
