The New England Patriots were cautioned by coach Bill Belichick to not engage in any extracurricular activity involving marijuana, since it is legal in small quantities in the state of Colorado. "It's a business trip. Nobody is going to care about that," RB LeGarrette Blount said. "Bill told us about it, he basically told us, 'Don't go out there and be stupid.' That's really good advice."

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount and CB Devin McCourty could be options to return kicks Week 16 because of the injury to WR Josh Boyce (ankle).
Tue, 17 Dec 2013 06:57:58 -0800
New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount has been more decisive in his running and kept his shoulders lower lately, whereas he used to run more upright and attempted to dance by defenders. Head coach Bill Belichick recently recommended the different style of running, and Blount has broken off big chunks of yardage since then.
Fantasy Tip: The New England running back situation is a muddy one and can change each week. Blount is still probably second in line behind Shane Vereen and ahead of Stevan Ridley in fantasy terms.
Mon, 09 Dec 2013 09:28:23 -0800
New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley was active and saw the field for 17 offensive snaps in the team's Week 14 game against the Cleveland Browns. He was used in a committee running back approach that included RBs Shane Vereen and LeGarrette Blount.
Fantasy Tip: Ridley was the third back up in the rotation because his ball-security issues have put him in the doghouse. It's good to see him back, but Vereen is clearly the most valuable runner in this backfield, especially in PPR leagues. Ridley is a risky start moving forward.
Mon, 02 Dec 2013 10:38:46 -0800
New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen received the most snaps among the running backs Week 13 with 41 snaps and was used in several different formations. RB LeGarrette Blount played 20 snaps during the game while Brandon Bolden was on the field for nine offensive snaps.
Sun, 01 Dec 2013 08:30:49 -0800
New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley has been declared inactive for the team's Week 13 game.
Fantasy Tip: Shane Vereen, Brandon Bolden and LeGarrette Blount will be handling the reps at running back with Ridley out. Vereen should still be started in all leagues. Bolden and Blount could be flex options for desperate owners.
