Ridley is not among the Patriots' inactives Sunday against the Browns.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Fumbling issues led to Ridley being a healthy scratch in Week 13, so don't be surprised if the Patriots ease him back into the mix Sunday, within the framework of a committee situation, along with Shane Vereen and LeGarrette Blount. Vereen’s pass-catching prowess makes him the more reliable play among the trio, but with Ridley’s potential Week 14 workload unclear, he’s a speculative play in his return to action.
Ridley, who was a healthy inactive last Sunday against the Texans, appears to be on track to suit up Sunday against the Browns, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After taking a seat in Week 13, in the wake of losing a fumble in each of his last three games, it looks like Ridley is in line to contribute again, but it wouldn't surprise us if the Patriots ease him back into the mix, while utilizing some form of committee, along with the likes of Shane Vereen, LeGarrette Blount, and Brandon Bolden. Of that group, Vereen would appear to be the most reliable play in fantasy terms, thanks to his usage in the passing game.
During a ball-security drill Wednesday, Ridley -- as well as fellow backs LeGarrette Blount and Shane Vereen -- appeared to be working with "noticeably worn-down (and possibly wet)" footballs, according to Field Yates of ESPN.com.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Ridley had more or less the best season one could hope for – from a two-down back. He saw 290 carries last year as the Patriots offense exploited his power brand of running and saw much of the work from in close – 11 of his 12 TD runs (3rd) came from inside the 10-yard line. In fact the Patriots fed him 31 carries inside the 10 and 19 inside the five (both second only to Arian Foster). Ridley is not a receiving threat (only six catches all year), and this season he could have increased competition for carries. Shane Vereen likely will fill the change-of-pace role in a backfield that also includes Brandon Bolden, Leon Washington and LeGarrette Blount, who could steal some of Ridley's short-yardage work. And that's assuming Vereen – or one of the others – doesn't eventually take his job outright. On the plus side, Ridley did a competent job last year, is the incumbent and will again benefit from playing on a team that has no trouble putting its players in a position to score touchdowns. At press time, Ridley confirmed he's not suffering any lingering effects from the blow to the head that knocked him out of last year’s playoff game and has reportedly added some extra muscle this offseason to bolster his rugged running style.

2012

Ridley scored just one touchdown and caught only three passes as a rookie last year, but he also got 5.1 YPC and is looking at a bigger workload in 2012 with BenJarvus Green-Ellis gone. Ridley’s 3.1 YPC after contact would have tied for fifth best had he qualified, while Green-Ellis ranked 58th among backs in the category. If a lead back ever emerged in this New England offense, his upside would be through the roof, which is why Ridley is worth gambling on. But the team’s running-back-by-committee philosophy probably won’t change anytime soon. Moreover, Ridley converted none of his five goal-line attempts for scores last year, something upon which he’d have to improve to see more work there.

2011

While BenJarvus Green-Ellis has been serviceable, it’s clear coach Bill Belichick wants more from his running backs, as he spent both a second- and third-round pick on the position, the latter being Ridley out of LSU. Ridley doesn’t have a ton of speed, but he’s a big back who should complement fellow rookie Shane Vereen well. Ridley can help on special teams immediately, and as the only other big back on New England’s roster, he could compete with Green-Ellis for some early down and short-yardage work. Ridley’s a sleeper, but the Patriots will most likely institute a running back by committee.
