Patriots RB Stevan Ridley expected to play Sunday

It appears Stevan Ridley @StevanRidley's benching for back-to-back-to-back games with fumbles will last just one week. After being a healthy scratch in Week 13 versus the Texans, Ridley is expected to be active Sunday against the Browns, a source has told Nick Underhill of Ridley has rushed for 576 yards and seven touchdowns in 10 games this season but has also lost four fumbles.

Fantasy Analysis:

Underhill adds that Ridley's role in Sunday's game is unknown, and there's the rub. Shane Vereen @ShaneVereen34 is the only Patriots running back you can trust because of his common usage in the passing game. I expect Ridley to split carries with LeGarrette Blount @L_Blount27 and perhaps Brandon Bolden @BB_HulkSmash. Keep those three players out of your lineups this week. Right now, the Patriots' backfield is just one big jumble.
