Patriots address decision to add RB Jonas Gray to active roster

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/14) Patriots coach Bill Belichick addressed the decision to promote running back Jonas Gray from the practice squad and the opportunity that he'll get moving forward with Stevan Ridley out for the remainder of the season, per ESPN.

Gray was added to the live rosters hours before Week 7 against the Jets and emerged as the team's second option behind Shane Vereen on Thursday night. He rushed for 12 yards on three carries.

"I think Jonas has been solid for us all the way through preseason," Belichick said. "He's done a good job in practice and got an opportunity last night -- not a lot of opportunities -- but he had some blitz pickup opportunities and a few carries. He works hard and he's a tough kid, a bigger back obviously -- more in the Ridley size range."

Belichick would not indicate whether Gray would be used as the team's second option in the ground game moving forward.

Patriots' Shane Vereen thrives Thursday

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/16/14) Patriots running back Shane Vereen had a big game Thursday against the Jets.

With Stevan Ridley out, Vereen got a chance to show off his skills as the primary ball-carrier. Vereen turned in an average performance as a runner, picking up 43 yards on 11 carries. He really showed off his abilities as a pass-catcher. On the first drive of the game, Vereen snagged a 49 yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady. The two would hook up again later in the contest on a 3 yard touchdown. Vereen led the team with 71 receiving yards.

Vereen will look for more Week 8 against the Bears. 

Shane Vereen not an automatic start

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/14) The Patriots' Shane Vereen may seem like a strong candidate for a midseason breakout now that Stevan Ridley is out for the season with a torn ACL and MCL, but it's not like he suddenly has all the carries to himself.

As I point out in my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog highlighting some of the biggest takeaways from Week 6, Brandon Bolden didn't touch the ball against the Bills until the fourth quarter, after Ridley left, and yet he still finished with more carries than Vereen. That's a pretty strong tell, I think. Vereen has his role in the Patriots offense, catching passes out of the backfield and getting the occasional change-of-pace carry, but the Patriots still want a grinder back there.

Though Bolden lacks experience, he's had success when he's gotten extensive playing time in the past. In the three games in which he's gotten double-digit carries in his career, he's averaged 5.8 yards per carry. He had 137 yards on a career-high 16 carries back in 2012.

Of course, he's no Ridley, and Vereen will probably get a larger share of the carries just because of that. But I'm guessing he won't get the majority, which makes me hesitant to start him Week 7 against the Jets.

Patriots RB Shane Vereen held to less than 10 yards Week 6

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/14) Patriots running back Shane Vereen wasn't much of a factor during a 37-22 win Week 6 at Buffalo. He totaled just five carries for 4 yards and one catch for 3 yards.

Even after Stevan Ridley left late in the third quarter due to a knee injury, running back Brandon Bolden ended up getting more touches on offense than Vereen, who totaled a season-low 7 yards in the win and hasn't had a touchdown since Week 1.

The Patriots are back in action Thursday against the Jets.

Repeat may be tough for Patriots RBs

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/9/14) Both Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen had big games Week 5 against the Bengals, who rank 27th against the run. They may not be so lucky Week 6 at Buffalo. The Bills rank second against the run, allowing 71.0 yards per game and 3.0 yards per carry, and have yet to surrender a touchdown to a running back this season.

Because the Bills are more vulnerable to the pass than the run, Jamey Eisenberg actually prefers Vereen to Ridley this week, though for my money, Vereen hasn't been productive enough as a pass-catcher this year for me to make that distinction. Ridley got three times as many carries as Vereen in Week 5 and was on the field for about 15 more plays, so if you're going to start one, Ridley is still the way to go.

I'm just not sure either is so advisable with this matchup. As Chris Towers pointed out earlier in the week, the way the Patriots use their two backs can vary drastically based on the way the game is going. If Ridley isn't a sure thing with a favorable matchup, surely he isn't for this one.

That doesn't mean he's an outright sit for me. Enough high-profile running backs have been lost to injuries the last couple weeks that he may still be your best bet. I just wouldn't go out of my way to start him based on last week's performance.
