Patriots | Stevan Ridley out for Week 7

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 13:53:04 -0700

New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley (knee) did not practice Monday, Oct. 13, and has been ruled out for Week 7. The team did not practice Monday, but was required to provide the status of injured players if they had practiced.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley is expected to miss a significant amount of time, possibly the rest of the season, with the knee injury. Shane Vereen, Brandon Bolden and James White should see increased value, with Vereen being the only fantasy relevant player of the trio, for now.

Patriots | Stevan Ridley injured

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 12:41:58 -0700

New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley (knee) suffered a knee injury in the team's Week 6 game and will not return.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Ridley will miss any time because of the injury, so owners will need to monitor his situation. Shane Vereen likely would see more work if Ridley misses time, but James White would also receive a bigger role. White could be a waiver wire pickup this week if Ridley misses some games.

Patriots | Stevan Ridley praised

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 06:34:38 -0700

New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley was praised by head coach Bill Belichick for his growth this season. Belichick also credited Ridley's ball security, vision and confidence.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley busted out for a 27-113-1 game last week and could have thrust himself into a position where he's the primary runner and Shane Vereen is the receiving back. Both backs should be involved, and it could be a game-by-game situation where one may be used more than the other. Ridley ($5,300; 10.6% of your cap) and Vereen ($6,300; 12.6%) are RB2 or flex options this week against Buffalo.

Patriots | Shane Vereen leading RBs in snaps

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 18:54:17 -0700

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen was on the field for 17 offensive snaps in the first half of the Week 4 game against the Kansas City Chiefs Monday, Sept. 29, with RB Stevan Ridley in for six snaps, and RB James White in for two. The team ran two plays with two running backs on the field simultaneously.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen's fantasy owners have to like the snap distribution, although Ridley actually leads the team in rushing with 15 yards on three totes, while Vereen has nine yards on four runs. Vereen also has 12 yards on three receptions while the other two have no catches. Vereen is the best fantasy option of the trio, but neither has done much of anything Monday.

Patriots | Stevan Ridley invisible in first quarter

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 18:06:23 -0700

New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley was on the field for just one of his team's seven offensive snaps in the first quarter Monday, Sept. 29, in the Week 4 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Shane Vereen was on the field for six of the seven snaps, and clearly is way ahead of Ridley on the depth chart. In fact, it's not even close. Fantasy owners need not pay Ridley any mind until he sees the field a little more frequently.

Patriots | Shane Vereen dominates snaps

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 05:49:27 -0700

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen rushed seven times for 36 yards and a touchdown Week 1. He also had five catches for 35 yards. He played in 71 percent of the snaps in Week 1. RB Stevan Ridley had eight rushes for 21 yards and two catches in Week 1 while playing in 26 percent of the snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen should make a decent RB2, depending on his salary cap value, against the Vikings. Ridley's low snap count is concerning, but he had one more rushing attempt than Vereen. He is an option to consider for your flex position on FantasyScore.

Patriots | Stevan Ridley could be cut

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 06:54:38 -0700

New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley may not make the team out of the preseason, according to beat writer Mike Reiss.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley would be a great late-round flier if he were to land with another team. He has quite a bit of talent but just hasn't figured it out yet.
