Patriots RB Stevan Ridley returns to practice

Among the many injured New England Patriots, at least one could be back this week. Running back Stevan Ridley @StevanRidley was seen at practice Wednesday after missing all of last week with thigh and knee injuries. The third-year back did not play last week against Cincinnati.

Fantasy Analysis:

Ridley has underwhelmed thus far, rushing for just 3.7 yards per rush on 47 carries. That early fumble back in Week 1 didn't help matters, but neither has his inability to move the chains. The Pats' offense struggled mightily last week as Tom Brady failed to throw a touchdown pass for the first time in years. Ridley's return though may not equal fantasy success. New England has relied heavily on both Brandon Bolden @BB_HulkSmash and LeGarrette Blount @L_Blount27 in recent weeks to split the load. It may be best to see how the team divvies out touches and responsibilities before committing to any of the aforementioned backs.
