Patriots' Brandon Bolden: Logs 16 snaps on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bolden was on the field for 16 of the Patriots' 83 offensive snaps in Sunday's 20-18 loss to the Broncos in the AFC title game, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. In the process, Bolden carried five times for 12 yards and caught two passes for 29 yards.

The 25-year-old Bolden finished up the 2015 regular season with 63 carries for 207 yards to go along with 19 catches for 180 yards and two TDs in 15 games. Bolden remains under contract with the Patriots in 2016, which puts him on track to reprise his role with the team next season as a versatile depth back that's also a valuable special teams contributor.

Patriots' Brandon Bolden: Sees reduced workload in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brandon Bolden was on the field for 17 of the New England Patriots ' 60 snaps on offense in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Dolphins, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Meanwhile, Steven Jackson was on the field for 24 snaps, while pass-catching back James White saw 23 snaps. Bolden did carry nine times for 31 yards in the game and caught two passes for five yards, but his reduced workload in the Patriots' offense Sunday corresponded to him playing a key role on special teams, something that will likely carry into the playoffs, with Jackson the prime candidate to see early-down work for the team on that front.

Patriots' Brandon Bolden: Could resume special teams work Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

ESPN's Mike Reiss relays that Brandon Bolden , who didn't play on special teams the last two weeks, worked on the New England Patriots ' punt unit during warm-ups in advance of Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Bolden is out there Sunday as an option to see some touches in the Patriots' backfield, but with pass-catching back James White on hand, and special teams duty potentially on tap for Bolden, we could see more of newcomer Steven Jackson in Week 17.

Patriots' Brandon Bolden: Sees nine carries on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bolden was on the field for 27 of the Patriots' 56 snaps on offense in Sunday's 26-20 overtime loss to the Jets, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. In the process, Bolden ran a team-high nine times for 30 yards and caught five passes on seven targets for 30 yards.

The report adds that for the second week in a row, Bolden didn't see any special teams work because of his expanded role in the Patriots' backfield. Looking ahead to Week 17, Bolden should continue to work in a committee with pass-catching back James White (22 snaps Sunday) and newcomer Steven Jackson, who saw just nine snaps in his debut with the team, but could see his role increase in the coming weeks. It's an arrangement that hampers Bolden's fantasy ceiling in the Patriots' regular season finale.

Patriots' Brandon Bolden: Could see more special teams work
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

ESPN's Mike Reiss suggests that the Patriots' signing of Steven Jackson will allow the team to play Bolden "more on special teams, where he is most valuable."

Bolden rushed 10 times for 36 yards and caught two passes for 18 yards during Sunday's win over the Titans, while newcomer Joey Iosefa led the team with 14 carries for 51 yards. Meanwhile, the addition of Jackson -- an experienced power back -- to the mix, appears to further hinder Bolden's fantasy upside down the stretch, though he retains plenty of utility to the Patriots, thanks to his versatility.
