Summary

Stevan Ridley was given a chance to secure the lead back position last season, but a bad case of fumblitis put the kibosh on that. The team drafted James White in the fourth round and still has Brandon Bolden waiting in the wings as well. Ridley will get a chance to retain the first spot on the depth chart, but there will always be a question of confidence in his ability to maintain that spot. Even if he stays with a decent share of the carries, it will be difficult for Ridley to be more than a low-end fantasy RB2. (June 18)

Patriots | Stevan Ridley fumbles (Sat Aug 16, 11:36 AM) - New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley lost a fumble during the second preseason game and did not return to the game. It is not known if the benching was due to the fumble.

Our View: What do you think? The guy with fumbling problems..the guy who has been benched due to fumbling before loses the football and he doesn't return to the game. Ridley could lose touches to rookie James White. Keep White in mind as a late-round sleeper in your fantasy drafts. His current ADP is RB51 (12.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Patriots | James White gets first-team reps (Thu Aug 14, 02:00 AM) - New England Patriots RB James White saw a number of reps with the first-team offense in practice Wednesday, Aug. 13, with RB Stevan Ridley seeing most of his reps with the second-team offense. RB Shane Vereen also saw some reps with the top unit.

Our View: Message! White has been a standout player for the Pats this offseason. The rookie back from Wisconsin is a good all-purpose runner who has impressed his QB Tom Brady. We'll see if he can get more involved than some think. Both Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley are in the final year of their contract, so White could be a featured player for the Pats in the near future.
