Thanks for the input on Cedric Benson guys. I stayed away from him and just drafted Ridley from the pats. The positive stuff on rotoworld convinced me, hope he can keep it up through the regular season now.

The Boston Globe believes the Patriots' backfield competition is "over."Stevan Ridley has racked up 152 yards on 34 carries (4.47 YPC) this preseason, while Shane Vereen has rumbled for a less impressive 81 yards on 23 totes (3.52 YPC), and left Friday's game against the Bucs with a left foot injury. Ridley is clearly the Pats' fantasy back to own heading into Week 1. Aug 25 - 10:20 AM

Steven Ridley rushed 16 times for 87 yards and a touchdown and caught three balls for 17 yards in the Patriots' third preseason game Friday night.The Patriots' run blocking knocked Tampa Bay off the ball in the trenches all night, and Ridley capitalized with explosive, hard running, and excellent vision to identify holes. He worked with New England's first-team offense throughout the game, only losing third-down pass-protection snaps to Danny Woodhead. Through three exhibition contests, Ridley has 34 carries for 152 yards (4.47 YPC) and the three receptions. He stayed in for goal-line duty against Tampa Bay, as expected, and executed from two yards out.
