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.

Patriots | James White gets first-team reps

Wed, 13 Aug 2014 23:00:47 -0700

New England Patriots RB James White saw a number of reps with the first-team offense in practice Wednesday, Aug. 13, with RB Stevan Ridley seeing most of his reps with the second-team offense. RB Shane Vereen also saw some reps with the top unit.

Fantasy Tip: White has reportedly impressed the coaching staff, and his presence could eat into the touches of Ridley if he continues to impress late in the preseason. The running back picture is shaping up as a three-headed monster (what else is new?) in New England. Ridley and Vereen are still the most promising as far as fantasy value is concerned, but White is emerging as a deep sleeper.

Patriots | Stevan Ridley in better shape

Wed, 11 Jun 2014 16:35:16 -0700

New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley appears to be lighter and faster this offseason as he enters the final year of his rookie deal, according to NFL.com's Albert Breer. Ridley is expected to be the lead back in the team's backfield with RB LeGarrette Blount now with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley could return as a solid RB2 if he can hang onto the football. He's clearly more valuable in standard-scoring formats if he's able to regain the lead role and find the end zone frequently.

Patriots | Stevan Ridley focusing on ball security

Thu, 05 Jun 2014 14:10:43 -0700

New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley is focused on playing mistake-free football and not his contract situation. Ridley is entering the final year of his rookie contract.

Fantasy Tip: Relying on Ridley as anything more than a low-end No. 2 fantasy running back isn't advised. The Patriots will ride the hot hand, and Ridley has fell out of favor with Bill Belichick in the past for a lack of ball protection.
