New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley has added a "noticeable amount of muscle" this offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Jeff Howe said Ridley "looked like a house today" and "might be even more difficult to tackle in 2013. That'd be promising, considering his 4.5 yards-per-carry average in his young career; we'll provide further details if and when they become available.
Though New England still likes to mix up its RB distribution and added bruiser LeGarrette Blount last week, Ridley fits a feature-back mold. Plus, with a less-than-stellar wideout corps so far and injuries that could sideline TEs Rob Gronkowski (forearm) and Aaron Hernandez (shoulder), the Pats may run more in the early going. Ridley looks like a firm top-10 pick among RBs in fantasy drafts but likely won't yield the stats of one every week.

New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley was on the field for only 19 of 96 offensive snaps in Week 15, but that was mainly due to the fact that New England was down multiple scores and RB Danny Woodhead was the better option with the team needing to pass more often. RB Shane Vereen was on the field for only one play in the second quarter, fumbled, and was benched. RB Brandon Bolden has been used strictly on special teams since he returned from injury.
