Stevan Ridley: Week 14 Fantasy Outlook

RotoWireContributor December 4, 2013

Ridley once looked like the Patriots RB to own down the stretch, when he was in the middle of an impressive touchdown streak that propelled more than one fantasy owner into playoff position, but his recent fumbling issues have caused him to be marginalized -- and totally benched last week -- in favor of Shane Vereen and LeGarrette Blount. There's no indication whether Ridley will be active this week against Cleveland, but even if he plays, he'll be splitting touches with Blount and Vereen.
At this point, Ridley's nothing more than a bench stash with a prayer that he can regain Bill Belichick's confidence by practicing well. So far, no good. Ridley owners should look into the availability of Vereen and Blount, in that order.
