Patriots | Expected to lean on Stevan Ridley

The New England Patriots are expected to lean heavily on RB Stevan Ridley without RB Shane Vereen (wrist) in Week 2 against the New York Jets Thursday, Sept. 12. RBs Brandon Bolden (knee) and Leon Washington (thigh) are banged up, and RB LeGarrette Blount did very little with only seven carries in Week 1. Following each of the games that Ridley fumbled last year, he averaged 17.75 carries per game the following game.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen's injury is the best thing that could have happened for Ridley owners. If it weren't for that, Ridley could have taken a back seat to Vereen once again in Week 2. Expect a much different workload for Ridley this week against the Jets.
