2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
With BenJarvus Green-Ellis having departed via free agency to Cincinnati, Ridley will enter training camp as the teamís starter at running backÖ at least that is what the football world is expecting. What head coach Bill Belichick has in mind is anybodyís guess. Having looked solid in a reserve role as a rookie in 2011, Ridley shapes up as the best bet to start in a New England backfield that also includes Danny Woodhead, fellow 2nd year player Shane Vereen and former Colt Joseph Addai. Ridley is the most physical runner of the group and is the favorite to land the short yardage and fourth quarter clock eating work, provided he avoids the fumbling issues that landed him in Belichickís doghouse last season. With so many options, look for Ridley to get 10-12 touches per game, which should be good enough to rank as a mid-tier RB3 in 2012.

News From The Past 90 Days
Ridley's roster spot in danger?     -- Mon Aug 25 5:45 pm --

Low snap total in last preseason game raises question
The Patriots are always good for a surprise, and we've had our antenna up at this position since early July. If there's a surprise, we'll play a hunch at this spot with Stevan Ridley, whose low snap total Friday (11 snaps) in a "dress rehearsal" game caught the eye. Meanwhile, Roy Finch lands on the practice squad. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Ridley is making just a shade over $750,000 in the final year of his contract and the Patriots' best inside runner, but HC Bill Belichick detests fumbling - one of a few areas in which Ridley has struggled. Rookie James White hasn't overwhelmed during the preseason, but was the talk of training camp. Ultimately, Ridley should remain on the roster, but owners need to be aware his leash will be very short.
Rookie RB James White impressive in camp     -- Mon Jul 28 4:50 pm --

Fourth-rounder more than just a receiving back
In the first few days of camp, itís been clear that rookie RB James White has exceptional skills and moves with the confidence of a veteran. The Patriots obviously have been making an effort to see what White can and can not do, giving him an abundance of reps over other rookies as well as veteran Brandon Bolden. While White was once viewed strictly as a pass receiving back in the mold of Shane Vereen (something Patriots RB coach Ivan Fears told me was off base during minicamp), he is quickly becoming one of the campís top phenoms and is the teamís leading rookie. (Boston.com)

FF Today's Take: As the backup to both Montee Ball and Melvin Gordon at Wisconsin, White didn't generate a lot of hype around draft time despite posting two 1,000-yard rushing seasons. ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss recently predicted White would be on the field for more than 20 percent of the Patriots' offensive snaps this season and it isn't hard to imagine that happening behind fumble-prone Stevan Ridley and injury-prone Vereen.
