Patriots | Stevan Ridley bulks up
Thu, 02 May 2013 14:09:24 -0700
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.
