Stevan Ridley: Week 12 Fantasy Outlook

RotoWireContributor November 20, 2013

Ridley had his snaps limited in Week 11 after he lost a fumble for the second straight game, but he still ended up with a fantasy-relevant 13 carries for 48 yards and a touchdown. He enters Week 12 with a streak of touchdowns in five consecutive games, but his butterfingers, as well as the return of Shane Vereen, may mean fewer touches going forward.
Ridley's lost three fumbles this year. Before last week, he looked like he'd be one of the best fantasy options down the stretch, but if Bill Belichick is going to shy away from some him due to his lack of ball control, that changes everything. Vereen looked great in his return, but was used mostly in the passing game; don't be surprised to see Vereen take more touches in the running game this week at Ridley's expense.
