Jets | Stevan Ridley to be ready for training camp

Thu, 21 May 2015 14:30:29 -0700

New York Jets RB Stevan Ridley (knee) should be healthy enough for training camp as he continues to recover from knee surgery. Head coach Todd Bowles said Ridley is not ready for team drills, but participated in positional drills.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley is expected to be the No. 2 running back behind Chris Ivory once the season is underway. He'll be an important part of the Jets' running offense, and may steal some goal line carries, but isn't more than a low-end RB4.

Jets | Running back situation up in the air

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:51:04 -0700

New York Jets coach Todd Bowles said his team's running back situation may take until the preseason to sort out. RBs Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, Zac Stacy, Stevan Ridley and Daryl Richardson all have experience at the position, but no one has broken out yet.

Fantasy Tip: Bowles said the team could keep as many as four backs, but it begs the question of which one to start. For now, this situation is too volatile, but be prepared to move one up your draft board if someone looks explosive in preseason games.

Jets | NYJ to run more in 2015?

Tue, 19 May 2015 11:14:45 -0700

New York Jets RBs Chris Ivory, Stevan Ridley, Zac Stacy and others could be busy this season, according to head coach Todd Bowles. Bowles said the reason he hired offensive coordinator Chan Gailey is because he has a track record of being able to run the ball, at least in his college coaching days. Bowles supposedly prefers a balanced, ball-control offense, which puts more of the onus on the running backs.

Fantasy Tip: Again, Ivory should see the majority of work out the backfield, but this figures to be more of a committee approach with how deep the Jets are in the backfield. Ivory could end up in RB3 territory while the rest of the running backs currently shouldn't be seen as more than flex options.

Jets | Stevan Ridley to be limited in OTAs

Tue, 19 May 2015 10:25:54 -0700

New York Jets RB Stevan Ridley (knee) will be a limited participant in organized team activities, which begin Tuesday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley will be a big part of the Jets' committee of running backs with Chris Ivory, Zac Stacy and Bilal Powell also in the fold. Ivory should technically be the starter, but this could turn into a crapshoot. Ivory has RB3 potential while Ridley should be targeted in the low-end RB4 to high-end RB5 range.

Jets | Stevan Ridley should be ready for camp

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 06:42:59 -0700

New York Jets RB Stevan Ridley (knee) should be ready for the start of training camp if he does not suffer any setbacks, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley is working his way back from injury and may not do much during offseason workouts. Ridley likely will serve a backup role with the Jets and could be a late-round option in drafts next season.

Jets | Stevan Ridley signing with Jets

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 16:21:15 -0700

Free-agent RB Stevan Ridley (Patriots) is signing with the New York Jets, a source told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley is coming off a 2014 season that was limited to just six games after he suffered tears to his ACL and MCL in mid-October and missed the rest of the season. Ridley was rushing at a career-low 3.6 yards per attempt at the time of the injury, and had scored two touchdowns in his six games. He was routinely in head coach Bill Belichick's doghouse due to fumbling woes. Ridley will have to leapfrog Bilal Powell and/or Chris Ivory on the depth chart to have a significant role in the offense. Ridley could return to fantasy RB2 status if he's able to do so.

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 06:00:18 -0700

Free-agent RB Stevan Ridley (Patriots) will visit the Washington Redskins Tuesday, April 7.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley's fantasy value wouldn't be maximized behind Alfred Morris, barring an injury. Ridley will likely be a depth back you take late in drafts.
