Patriots RB duo too tough to rely on
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:00 am ET) If the question before the season was, "Which Patriots running back do I want to rely on?" the answer through four games has been an emphatic, "Neither." The team's moribund offense has affect everyone involved, and Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley have been hit as hard as anyone.

Last season, the Patriots had one of the best running games in the league, and they augmented it with Vereen's pass-catching skills to create a tandem that was consistently useful for Fantasy owners. So far, however, Vereen and Ridley have just two double-digit Fantasy games between them, one each. And things aren't much better for Vereen in PPR leagues, where he has just one additional 10-plus-point effort.

The Patriots have one of the league's five-least productive offenses, as they are averaged just 298.5 yards per game, while scoring just 20.0 points per game. At this point, Fantasy owners probably cannot rely on either member of the Patriots backfield on a weekly basis, especially as long as they continue splitting time and work. 

Stevan Ridley used sparingly in blowout loss
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:06 am ET) Patriots running back Stevan Ridley carried five times for 28 yards in the 41-14 defeat at Kansas City. He was targeted once without a catch.

Ridley faces the Bengals in Week 5.

Is this the week for Stevan Ridley?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/25/14) Patriots running back Stevan Ridley didn't deliver as the CBSSports.com Start of the Week against the Raiders last week, but it wasn't for a lack of opportunity. He had 19 carries, including one from inside the 5-yard line, making him clearly the preferred ball carrier on an offense that has never made clarity much of a priority. It's just that Tom Brady and company didn't often put him in a position to score, putting up just 16 points.

In other words, the failure wasn't Ridley's specifically but the offense's as a whole. He won't be able to take advantage of his opportunity to carry the load without the help of the passing game.

The good news is the Patriots' opponent in Week 4 is vulnerable to the pass. The Chiefs allowed big numbers to both the Titans' Jake Locker in Week 1 and the Broncos' Peyton Manning in Week 2. Not so much the Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill in Week 3, but even 37-year-old Brady is on a different level from him.

In other words, I'm with Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard in calling Ridley a No. 2 running back this week. He may not be Start of the Week, but he's an advisable start at least in non-PPR leagues.

Stevan Ridley can't deliver on chances
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/21/14) Coming off a 100-yard, touchdown-scoring performance at Minnesota last time out, running back Stevan Ridley was clearly the Patriots' preferred rusher Week 3 against Oakland, getting more than twice as many carries as the second-leading rusher, Shane Vereen. But with those 19 carries, he could muster only 54 yards against a Raiders defense that allowed 138 to the Texans' Arian Foster in Week 2 and 102 to the Jets' Chris Ivory in Week 1.

Ridley's best chance to score came late in the second quarter, when he was stopped for just a 1-yard gain at the 2-yard line. It was his only carry from inside the 5. With the Patriots compelled to throw the ball in an unexpectedly tight game, Ridley got only seven of his 19 carries in the second half.

Ridley did catch a 7-yard pass, but Vereen was, as usual, the bigger pass-catcher out of the backfield, hauling in four for 17. Ridley will look to get back in the end zone Week 4 at Kansas City.

Stevan Ridley in line for big game
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/14) Patriots running back Stevan Ridley has the chance for a big game in Week 3 against the Raiders, and he's the CBSSports.com Start of the Week.

We know the risks with Ridley. Patriots coach Bill Belichick could decide this is the week to feature Brandon Bolden or rookie James White. He could make this a Tom Brady showcase game and throw at will, with Shane Vereen dominating playing time. Or Ridley could fumble in the first quarter, which has happened before, and all those potential Fantasy points will be sitting on the bench.

But we have confidence in Ridley this week. He's coming off his best game since Week 9 of last year when he had 25 carries for 101 yards and a touchdown at Minnesota. The Patriots were sitting on a lead, and Ridley was the hammer killing the clock.

The Raiders are making the dreaded cross-country trip for a 1 p.m. ET start, and their run defense has already been shredded in two games by Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Arian Foster. All three running backs scored at least 14 Fantasy points in a standard league, with Ivory and Foster gaining over 100 rushing yards and a touchdown.

We hope Ridley – and more importantly Belichick – doesn't let us down. But based on the matchup and how he performed last week, we're willing to take a chance.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.
