2014 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Jul-08-2014 by Daniel Kalles

Stevan Ridley's biggest problem is that he fumbles the ball too often -- nine times over the past two seasons (including playoffs). After busting out in 2012 with over 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns, there were expectations of a repeat performance. Unfortunately Ridley never fully got on track as he dealt with more fumbles early on, putting him in the coach's dog house. Ridley is in a contract year and will be highly motivated to prove what he can do. With his strong inside running, he still offers a good counter to Vereen's speed and pass-catching ability, so look for the Pats to use that (especially around the end zone). Despite his up-and-down 2013 season, Ridley scored seven touchdowns. If he can avoid fumbling, look for him to score 10 touchdowns again. Ridley isn't used often as a receiver, so his value is higher in standard leagues and lower in PPR.

Editor's note: This former LSU back was the 28th RB off the board in a recent Fantasy Football World Championships Draft-N-Go. Ridley should hold onto goal-line work and respect for New England's offense carries his value as a RB2 in standard or perhaps a flex in PPR.

9.07 Bluefish Blitz - My first great value comes in round 9. With Blount gone, that can only help. If he can hang onto the ball, he'll have a nice contract year. NE should run away with the AFC East which means 4th quarter clock killing duties and extra opportunites for Ridley

7.05 KFFL - Ridley as a No. 1 is not ideal. I expect 10-plus touchdowns, though, and he is much better than what we witnessed last year.
