Patriots | Stevan Ridley benched in Week 1

New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley fumbled in the second quarter of the Week 1 game against the Buffalo Bills, and he was benched for the balance of the game. He also fumbled in the first quarter. RB Shane Vereen stepped in and shined in Ridley's absence.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley is a shaky fantasy play going forward, partly due to his fumbles, and partly due to Vereen's success likely buying him a bigger role in Week 2. Consider him a flex play at best for next week.
