NFL | Stevan Ridley to start meeting teams

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 07:04:07 -0700

Free-agent RB Stevan Ridley (knee) is scheduled to meet with a few teams this week. Ridley is expected to receive full medical clearance in around six weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley likely will be able to find a backup job this offseason but will not be a starting option for a team. His fantasy value will be determined by the team he signs with, but he could be an option in the later rounds of drafts.

Vikings | MIN may look at Stevan Ridley

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 04:28:19 -0700

Free-agent RB Stevan Ridley (Patriots) is drawing interest from the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Three words: Adrian Peterson insurance. Ridley, who rushed for 340 yards last season before suffering a torn ACL, is being courted just in case Peterson doesn't return. A running back returning from a knee injury is a risky proposition, but Ridley could be in Minnesota's plans if Peterson doesn't return. Keep an eye on this.

Patriots | Stevan Ridley could receive prove-it deal

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 11:03:33 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Stevan Ridley (knee) could be a coup for a team willing to take a chance on his recovery from anterior cruciate ligament surgery this offseason. He's likely to receive an offer for a "prove-it" one-year deal around the $1.25 million range with incentives.

Fantasy Tip: The uncertain future for Ridley as it relates to both free agency and his recovery from ACL makes him a cloudy fantasy football asset entering the 2015 season. Depending on where Ridley lands, he could be worth a stab in the later rounds of standard fantasy drafts for running back depth.

Patriots | Stevan Ridley ahead of schedule

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 15:49:40 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Stevan Ridley (knee) is about four weeks ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Ridley hopes to be able to return to the field in May.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known who Ridley will play for next season, so his value will depend on his next team and his role. Ridley may not be able to find a starting job in free agency, but he should be able to find at least a backup job. Owners should consider Ridley as an option in the later rounds of drafts since he is coming back from the ACL injury.

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 13:53:04 -0700

Patriots | Stevan Ridley injured

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 12:41:58 -0700

New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley (knee) suffered a knee injury in the team's Week 6 game and will not return.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Ridley will miss any time because of the injury, so owners will need to monitor his situation. Shane Vereen likely would see more work if Ridley misses time, but James White would also receive a bigger role. White could be a waiver wire pickup this week if Ridley misses some games.

Patriots | Stevan Ridley praised

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 06:34:38 -0700

New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley was praised by head coach Bill Belichick for his growth this season. Belichick also credited Ridley's ball security, vision and confidence.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley busted out for a 27-113-1 game last week and could have thrust himself into a position where he's the primary runner and Shane Vereen is the receiving back. Both backs should be involved, and it could be a game-by-game situation where one may be used more than the other. Ridley ($5,300; 10.6% of your cap) and Vereen ($6,300; 12.6%) are RB2 or flex options this week against Buffalo.
