2016

2015

While Boldenís fantasy upside is limited, the Patriots thought enough of him to ink him to a two-year, $2.32 million contract extension this offseason. Though Bolden can offer value as a backup running back option, his prime value to the team is that he is one of the Patsí core special-teamers. While LeGarrette Blount and Jonas Gray are the teamís top power backs and James White and Travaris Cadet profile more as change-of-pace options, Boldenís versatility and special-teams value should be enough to secure him a roster spot, though it would take a series of injuries in the teamís backfield for him to enter the fantasy equation.

2014

Bolden maintained a healthy 4.9 YPC and upped his number of receptions from two the year previous, to 21 in 2013. His utility role in the Patriot's offense came about with injuries to Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen. His role projects to be much of the same in 2014.

2013

Bolden figures to directly compete with newcomer LeGarrette Blount for a depth role behind presumed starter Stevan Ridley. Both are bruising backs and unless injuries hit the team's other backfield options during the preseason, it's quite possible that only one of the two will make the team's final roster.

2012

A fractured ankle that Bolden suffered as a senior, plus a one-game suspension he was handed, probably caused him to slide out of the draft, but he'll take aim at cracking a New England backfield that also includes Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen, Danny Woodhead and Joseph Addai. Even if he doesn't make the team's final roster, he could end up on the team's practice squad out of the gate, as fellow undrafted free agent BenJarvus Green-Ellis did.
