The undrafted rookie running back out of Ole Miss has been suspended the past four games. You may have just forgotten about him.Bolden only had seven carries in the first three games of the year, before exploding in a Week 4 win over Buffalo with 137 yards, a touchdown and an 8.56 yards per carry average. It was starting to look like the Patriots might have a two headed monster in the backfield with Bolden and Ridley, then Bolden got hurt against Seattle. He missed a few weeks before getting suspended by the NFL for PEDs. This week is the first game he'll be able to return. The question remains, how big of a role will he have?When Bolden was first suspended, Patriots fans cried out that he was going to feel the wrath of Bill Belichick. I didn't necessarily buy into this at first - pointing to the case with Brandon Spikes in his rookie year.That was before Jermaine Cunningham was suspended for PEDs as well.

Fantasy Forecast: Week 14

QB Tom Brady The Texans haven’t been stalwarts against the pass, giving up 230+ yards per game and 20 scores on the season. Opening up running lanes against this defense will be tough, so don’t be surprised to see Brady put the ball in the air at least 40 times. That should equate to 300+ yards and at least two scores. WRs Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd I see no good...
