2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Ridley will enter the 2012 season as the Patriots RB1


(+) Averaged 5.1 yards a carry on 87 carries last season


(+) Expect his workload to at least double this season as he should be slotted in for the most carries even with the glutton of RBs on the roster


(+) If he ends up getting both his (87) and Green-Ellis’ (181) carries from last season, he could crack into the top 10-15 fantasy RBs


(+) Ridley stands to be the Red Zone/goal-line guy while the Patriots have always been one of the best Red Zone rushing teams in the league (New England has been in the top-six in rushing TDs each of the past six seasons)


(–) Ridley will probably only be a two-down back as the Shane Vereen/Danny Woodhead combo looks to have the third-down role wrapped up


(–) If Ridley begins to struggle at all, the Pats could throw either Joseph Addai (a proven vet) or Shane Vereen (taken a round earlier than Ridley in ’11) in there and likely not miss a beat


(–) Had a problem holding on the ball last season and if he does so again, he could end up on the bench early


(–) Pretty much inept as a receiver out of the backfield

RB Stevan Ridley believes his "best years" are ahead of him.

SR

Pyro's take: Stevan Ridley will be the new Joique Bell in the backfield for the Detroit Lions this season. Ridley also hasnt been someone who has carried the ball much. In fact, he has had only two seasons where he has carried the ball more than 100 times.

He hasnt done much since his 2012 campaign where he rushed for 1,263 yards and 12 touchdowns, as he has had fumble problems along with teammate Ameer Abdullah.

He should be used in goal line situations this year, but will have to battle Zach Zenner for the "big boy" role

Activated off PUP

playing

Pyro's take: Ridley could very well see some game action. HE is now activated for the JEts. Coach Cowles said he is running at full speed. HE could have an impact on this team with Powell banged up.

Stevan Ridley (PUP, knee) is expected to don pads at practice this week.

SR

Pyro's take: Manish Meta has reported via twitter that "Bowles hopes Stevan Ridley will get in pads this week. Could he play vs Pats? "maybe," Bowles said"

Ridley is a Chris Ivory clone, and should only be had if you own Ivory. Other than that his role for fantasy purposes is very limited, unless Ivory goes down.

Out for Season

Stevan Ridley tore his ACL and MCL and will be out for the season. Ridley was New England’s top rusher with 340 yards in six games, running for two touchdowns and was averaging 3.6 yards per carry.

With Ridley now out, Shane Vereen will step up to the number one, while Brandon Boldin will see his role expand.

Pyro's take: Stevan Ridley was having a below average season, and now he can safely be dropped in most leagues. Brandon Boldin, might be the safest bet to fill the Ridley role, while Vereen will continue to be the PPR specialist.

Ridley continues to have ball security issues

When Stevan Ridley fumbled early in the second quarter of Friday night's preseason game between the Patriots and the Eagles, it was immediately recovered by fullback James Develin. It also appeared close as to whether or not the play should have technically been ruled a fumble at all since Ridley was very close to being on the ground when the ball popped loose.

Technicality or no technicality, Patriots coach Bill Belichick explained in a conference call on Saturday why the team never wants its players to loose their handle on the football.

"We always talk about ball-security," Belichick said. "Taking care of the ball, there's nothing that correlates more to winning and losing than the turnovers so that's always a high priority for us. We never want the ball out. On the other side of the ball, defensively and the kicking game, we always try to get it out. Sometimes when we get the ball out, we don't recover it. Sometimes when we recover it, they blow it dead. But we always want to try to do that.

"Same goes true on the offensive side of the ball. We don't want plays where they end up with the ball, whether they're ruled in our favor or not: Have an interception in their hands but drop it, or plays where the ball gets away from us, or we recover, or it goes out of bounds, or they recover it. Those are all plays that we try to avoid, obviously. They do matter. And so do the ones that we -- same thing on defense. Plays where we get it out . . . we don't get 'em all. But the more we get 'em out, the more we'll get. So they are significant."

Pyro's take: Ridley has had a case of the fumbles since he entered the NFL, and that has consistently put him in Bill Belichick's doghouse. The fact that this trend has continued in this preseason is bad news for Stevan. The Patriots have added James White to the backfield in the draft, and he is quickly moving ahead of Ridley. The other issue is that Ridley is a one dimensional running back. In his three seasons in the NFL Stevan only has 19 receptions. So if he continues to have the ball security issues then it will be a no brainer for Belichick to bench him in favor of the rookie. Ridley is not a recommended back this season.

Ridley is back at practice

After missing Sunday's game with an announced knee injury, running back Stevan Ridley was back at practice Wednesday afternoon.

Pyro's take: This is good news for Ridley owners, and it may be bad news for all of those who jumped on the waiver to grab Brandon Bolden. The Patriots and their run attack is very confusing as far as fantasy is concerned. There has been not true leader week in and week out, and I have a feeling that is what is going to continue now that it looks like Ridley is back in the mix.

Stevan Ridley out for week 5

The Patriots have ruled out tailback Stevan Ridley for their Week Five game at Cincinnati, the club disclosed on its updated Friday injury report. Ridley hasn’t practiced all week because of a knee injury.

Pyro's take: With Ridley out this opens a door for LaGarrette Blount, which just sounds weird. Brandon Bolden is also dealing with an injury and that will give Blount the starting job.

Stevan Ridley has a strong performance

Stevan Ridley was impressive for the Patriots with 8 carries for 92 yards and a touchdown in their first preseason game.

Pyro's take: Ridley broke off a 62-yard run on the very first play from scrimmage, and continued to find holes after that. Ridley showed that he is still the Patriots best option at the goal line and Ridley showed a bit more burst than he did last season. This was a great start for Ridley, as he is expected to pick up a lot of the slack in the running game to take the pressure off all the young receivers for the Patriots.
