RB Stevan Ridley - New York Jets
|5-10, 225||Born: 1-27-1989||College: LSU||Drafted: Round 3|
Week 12: vs Miami Dolphins
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. The Jets prevailed 27-14 the last time they saw the Dolphins (in Miami, no less) - they pounded the rock for 43/207/2 in that game, led by Chris Ivory's 29/166/1 rushing on the day. Since then, Ivory has retained his grip as the lead back for the Jets, compiling 164/679/6 rushing and 17/165/1 receiving to land at seventh-best fantasy running back in the land. Last week, he handled 8/36/0 rushing and 1/9/0 receiving in a down week as the Jets chased Houston from behind (Bilal Powell had 4/22/0 rushing and 5/67/0 receiving as the pass-catching change-of-pace back). The Dolphins' rush D is ranked 31st in the NFL averaging 138.6 yards allowed per game, with eight rushing scores given out over 10 weeks. They coughed up 38/166/0 to Dallas last week, and 36/83/1 to the Eagles two weeks ago - over the past four weeks (four games) the Dolphins are the second-most generous defense to opposing fantasy backs, averaging 27.5 fantasy points allowed per game. Advantage, New York.

Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 11 vs HOU (4 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / -5 / 0 rec)
Stevan Ridley saw limited snaps and was unable to establish himself. Credit Houston's defense for breaking into the backfield, but Ridley lacks explosiveness and burst.
2015 Week 10 vs BUF (3 / -1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Back-up running back, Zac Stacy fractured his ankle during a kick-off return, so Ridley slid into the back-up running back role. Ridley looked rusty and had trouble getting into a rhythm during a limited number of snaps.
Latest NewsJets | Stevan Ridley plays eight snaps (Fri Nov 13, 09:22 AM) - New York Jets RB Stevan Ridley played eight snaps in Week 10 Thursday, Nov. 12. Our View: Look for that number to go up if Bilal Powell can't get on the field next week. Chris Ivory has been injury prone over the course of his career, so Ridley might have value in deep leagues as semi-handcuff or full handcuff if Powell can't get over the hump.
