Patriots RB Stevan Ridley looks like a house

But in a good way.
In a tweet from the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe: "Stevan Ridley @StevanRidley looked like a house today. He's added a noticeable amount of muscle. Might be even more difficult to tackle in 2013."
Ridley played last season at 225 pounds. It is not known exactly how much muscle he has packed on. Ridley rushed for 1,263 yards and scored 12 touchdowns last year.

Fantasy Analysis:

These kinds of stories are easy talking points, but the actual value is always overrated. Some players lose weight to gain more agility and then if the following season is a failure, they complain about how the weight loss caused them to wear down quickly. Then players, such as Ridley, put on the pounds in an effort to become more durable and tougher to bring down. But if Ridley has a bad year, he could just as easily blame the gain and say it limited his quickness and speed.
Ridley told Howe on Thursday that he has completely recovered from the concussion he sustained in the playoffs, so that's really good news. Ridley finished last season inside the top 12 in fantasy scoring among running backs, but because he contributes nothing as a receiver, I consider him more of a high-end RB2.
