New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley was a healthy scratch for the Week 13 game against the Houston Texans, and he is at a crossroads with the team. Beat writer Mike Reiss says if Ridley isn't active against a two-win Houston team, there is little reason to believe, outside of an injury to another player, that Ridley will be a major factor down the stretch and into the playoffs.

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.

New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley fumbled on the team's second drive in the Week 11 game against the Carolina Panthers Monday, Nov. 18. He was kept on the sideline for 18 snaps before he was finally sent back into the game.
Fantasy Tip: Ridley has plenty of talent, but if he cannot hang onto the ball, he won't see much of the field, especially with Shane Vereen back from the Injured Reserve/designated to return list.

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick did not bench RB Stevan Ridley after his fumble to open the second half in the team's Week 9 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers like he had earlier in the year. "I thought Stevan did a good job," Belichick said. "It was really a tremendous play by (Troy) Polamalu. He did a great job. Stevan caught the ball with his back to the defender. As he turned, Troy came in there and instead of making a tackle he was able to dislodge the ball. He anticipated Ridley turning up and Troy made a good play on it. I don't think Stevan really had much of a chance to do anything but turn. Sometimes turnovers are a result of real good defensive plays." Ridley ran for 60 more yards in the half and went over 100 yards rushing for the first time this year.
Fantasy Tip: Ridley has come on strong lately, and it's not a coincidence that it's happened with the returns of Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola. The return of Shane Vereen in Week 11 will complicate the backfield a bit, but i'll mainly hurt Brandon Bolden and not Ridley, as Ridley has rarely been involved in the passing attack.
