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.

Patriots | Stevan Ridley back in the mix

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.

Patriots | Stevan Ridley at crossroads

Sun, 01 Dec 2013 19:05:10 -0800

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.
