Is Stevan Ridley the least sexy of the second round backs


looking over my squad and have the choice to keep Foster Morris Brady or Ridley (keep 3) ADP wise I should go with the 3 backs but that just sounds a bit restricting for the rest of the draft. tried dangling ridley for a solid wr and thats not getting any action. do I just keep brady over ridley or go into the season with my rb trio ? start 2 rb & a flex. (1/2 ppr)

no

Ridley week 1 versus Buffalo?

he should go off for a 100 + a TD or two

then trade him to a homer

and brady should go 300 yards and 3 tds vs the bills. this is why your team was such garbage in the regulars. you schedule watch for mediocre players and draft them in anticipation to sell high in week one. most smart owners aren't going to dump their top picks for a week one over achiever

Between he and S-Jax, I'd say yes.

If MJD falls to the second round which is a possibility in some league then I would think he would be. Contract year and has something to prove. Expect big numbers.

As for Ridley, I think he'll keep up what he had going last season. Just make sure you have Vereen as your handcuff and expect to be pissed off when Vereen's in for a whole series and scores.

I agree with all of this.

throwing to whom? Brady is getting drafted in the 5th while Ridley's going in the 2nd....grab Luck vs OAK, stafford hit 5k and his TD numbers should go back up....Brady is a risk that's why he's going later

Ridley put a respectable 22 and 16 in his two games v the bills last year

It's Tom Brady. He falls to the 5th, I'm taking him, even if they put Wilfork at WR.

Brady will still get his numbers but it won't be the 300 and 3 Brady every week. Patriots will definitely run the ball more setting up the pass. And if it gets inside the 5 it's a Ridley/Vereen time.

Depends. Where do you draft? Who most likely will still be there... Brady or Ridley? Who do you rather have?

I don't think you go wrong either way. If you kept Ridley, you should still be able to land a really good QB and vice versa with Brady and a RB. I think it boils down to who you want.

that's fine in the 5th....but giving up a 2ND for him?

CE can keep Ridley and drop Brady....then pick him right back up....no one will grab him in the 1st(4th) with all the depth at QB and the questions at WR in NE

4.8k and 34tds

break it down for me

Danny Amendola 1,100 and 6td?
Michael Jenkins 600 and 2tds
Aaron Dobson 750 and 4tds
Rob Gronkowski 1,000 and 11td
Jake Ballard 200 and 2td
Stevan Ridley 50 and 0

I guess
Shane Vereen 1,100 and 9tds?

Don't forget Danny Woodhead now

Brandon Bolden could make an impact as well, had some potential last year until the injury and suspension.

Probably wouldn't give up a 2nd, because he can be taken cheaper; that being said, I don't think anyone who takes Brady in the 2nd will get burned.

I'm not giving anything up, it's keep 3 and then draft. i have pick 11 in the redraft. most qbs will be gone, I'd probably wind up with Romo.

Then I'd probably keep Brady, myself. He's closer to the top of QBs than Ridley is for RBs, and I think you can get a solid RB at 11. I never got hard for Ridley though, despite his production last year.

dude Brady has made a career of throwing to 5'9" wide receivers. They'll just taylor it to some other quick strike offense.
