Colts | Stevan Ridley visiting Colts

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 11:34:02 -0700

Free-agent RB Stevan Ridley (Lions) visited the Indianapolis Colts Friday, August 26.

Fantasy Tip: This meeting makes sense for both sides, as Ridley would certainly like to join a backfield where he could get some regular playing time, while the Colts could desperately beef up their running back depth. Robert Turbin is currently the No. 2 tailback in Indy, which isn't exactly something to brag about.

Lions | Stevan Ridley released

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 05:58:09 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Stevan Ridley was released Thursday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Zach Zenner and/or Dwayne Washington may move up to be the team's third running back. They won't be entirely useful in fantasy unless something happens to Ameer Abdullah or Theo Riddick ahead of them, but the two youngsters are amidst the RB5 speculative flyers. Ridley could still latch on and serve as an RB5 somewhere before the season.

Lions | Stevan Ridley may be on bubble

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 07:07:38 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Stevan Ridley may be on the roster bubble if he does not receive any work with the second-team offense during the team's third preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley appears to be at least fourth on the depth chart at this point and has only played in the second half in the first two preseason games. He will not have much fantasy value if he stays with the Lions.

Lions | Stevan Ridley did not receive much time

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 07:50:01 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Stevan Ridley did not see playing time until the second half of the preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Friday, Aug. 12, and finished the game with 14 yards on five carries.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley was expected to compete with Zach Zenner for the No. 3 running back job, but it appears he is fourth on the depth chart at this point. Owners will need to monitor the situation because Ridley may be fighting for a roster spot. He likely will not have a big role on offense if he makes the team, so owners can avoid him in drafts.

Lions | Stevan Ridley the favorite for No. 3

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 12:01:30 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Stevan Ridley seems to be the frontrunner for the No. 3 running back position behind RBs Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick, according to Tim Twentyman of detroitlions.com. Ridley would provide a change of pace from Abdullah and Riddick, but he'll still have to prove himself after missing most of the offseason with an undisclosed injury.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley may vulture a touchdown here and there when the Lions are in goal-line situations, but he can mostly be avoided as long as Abdullah and Riddick are healthy.

Lions | Several candidates for backup RB role

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 04:43:43 -0700

The Detroit Lions will have several candidates in mind to complement RB Ameer Abdullah on the field. In contention for the second running back role are RB Stevan Ridley, RB Zach Zenner, and RB George Winn.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley's fantasy value goes up and down depending on the situation he is in. Zenner was explosive last year without getting hurt, and Winn is a local favorite much like Joique Bell (Wayne State) was for a couple seasons. Whoever gets this job could see some action, so monitor it closely.

Lions | Best yet to come for Stevan Ridley?

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 18:42:27 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Stevan Ridley said he believes his best years are still ahead of him, and he said he expects to have a similar role to the one he had with the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley should handle short-yardage duties, and the possibility of goal-line carries makes him worth a look as a RB4.

Lions | Stevan Ridley's deal for one year

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 11:25:46 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Detroit Lions RB Stevan Ridley signed a one-year deal.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley figures to run in short yardage and goal line situations. He'll check in as an RB4 for now.

Lions | Stevan Ridley headed to Lions

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 10:43:33 -0700

Free-agent RB Stevan Ridley (Jets) announced Friday, April 1, that he's signing with the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley is two years removed from his ACL tear, and he figures to take over the between-the-tackles role that Joique Bell had. Bell caught a ton of passes, which Ridley has not done in his career. That role will fall to Theo Riddick on third down and passing situations. Ridley's presence could be felt in goal line situations, which would take some luster away from Ameer Abdullah. Abdullah still figures to be the lead guy. He and Riddick are RB3 options in PPR leagues. Ridley will probably check in as an RB4.
