Brandon Bolden off to bad start in camp
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Boston Herald has noticed that Patriots running back Brandon Bolden has had two bad practices to begin training camp. He's fumbled twice and had a bad drop. Fumbles were a part of Bolden's rookie training camp as well. 

It's believed Bolden is in the running for the backup running downs job behind Stevan Ridley in camp, but if he keeps fumbling he could be released.

Brandon Bolden in danger of getting cut
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Patriots running back Brandon Bolden is not projected to make the team, according to the Boston Globe. Bolden ran for 271 yards and three touchdowns and caught 21 passes for 152 yards last year.

But he's battled injuries and he lacks "top-end long speed to make big plays," the paper said.

How might the Patriots RBs shake out?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Stevan Ridley led all Patriots running backs in snaps played the last two seasons, but ESPN believes that nothing will be handed to him and he'll have to earn his keep this year. Additionally, ESPN thinks Ridley would not have led the backs in snaps had Shane Vereen stayed healthy for a full season. Vereen played nearly as many snaps as Ridley as it were. 

The belief from ESPN's Mike Reiss is that there will be a tandem situation "if everyone is healthy, with the numbers trending heavier toward Vereen."

Behind Ridley and Vereen are Brandon Bolden and rookie James White. Either one of them could earn decent playing time with a strong training camp and/or turnover issues from Ridley or Vereen.

The Patriots got several offensive contributions in their win over Baltimore. Among them, running back Brandon Bolden caught two passes for 16 yards and had a 6-yard run. Wideout Aaron Dobson hauled in one of four targets for 21 yards.

Tight end Michael Hoomanawanui added a 9-yard reception. They'll all face the Bills in Week 17.
