Bolden will have to compete for a roster spot, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bolden's new contract with the Patriots contains a minimal signing bonus of $50,000. He's stuck around the roster since 2012 due to his contributions on special teams, but the Patriots recently gave a much larger contract to Rex Burkhead -- another running back with a long history of standout play on special teams. Bolden likely will have to compete with D.J. Foster (and perhaps a rookie or two) for the No. 4 running back job behind Burkhead, Dion Lewis (hamstring) and James White.

The Patriots have re-signed Bolden, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bolden will thus reprise his role as a core special-teamer for the Patriots, though his fantasy value is minimal given that he is merely a depth option in the team's backfield, which also has Dion Lewis, James White, Rex Burkhead and D.J. Foster under contract. This past season, Bolden played in 14 games, logging just one rushing attempt for four yards, while catching two passes for 15 yards.

Bolden (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's AFC championship game against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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 finished the 2016 regular season with one carry for four yards and two catches for 15 yards in 14 games for the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Bolden (knee) listed as active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Bolden's fantasy value is limited as long as both LeGarrette Blount and James White remain healthy, but his return to action Sunday is a boost to the Patriots' special teams unit.

Bolden (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Bolden was reduced from a limited participant earlier in the week to a practice absentee Friday, so his knee appears to be working against him heading into the weekend. With LeGarrette Blount and James White complementing one another well, Bolden has barely featured on offense, so his potential absence would stand to have a bigger impact on New England's special teams units.

Bolden (knee) was listed as limited at Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Bolden's continued practice participation suggests that he could be available Sunday against the Steelers, but even if he is active for the contest, he's off the fantasy radar while working behind LeGarrette Blount and James White.
