Patriots RB Stevan Ridley fumbles, gets benched

In the second preseason game, Patriots RB Stevan Ridley @StevanRidley fumbled and was immediately benched by coach Bill Belichick. Ridley looked impressive throughout the night, rushing nine times for 45 yards, but it doesn't help that he was already on a short leash due to previous fumbling issues. Rookie James White is expected to be pushing Ridley for carries, but he didn't do much to impress with his snaps either (although he didn't fumble.)

Fantasy Analysis:

New England's backfield is a straight mess right now. The situation probably won't be decided in the next two preseason games, and Belichick is a wildcard when it comes to switching RBs week-to-week. Depending on how hard the coaching staff is on Ridley, it may be the end of the road for him and certainly a situation to avoid for fantasy purposes.
