Ridley or Lawfirm for rest of season? WHIR

Postby GreenBowlPackers » Thu Sep 29, 2011 2:32 pm

PPR league:
0.5 pts for receptions
10yds=1pt rec/rush, 3 pt bonuses at 100/150/200
TD = 6 rush/rec, 5 passing

Whos the better value for the rest of the season? I dont know any Pats fans..

As of now, I would still say BJGE. But it is worth keeping an eye on in the upcoming weeks. Depending on your bench situation, Ridley may be a good pick-up to hold on to if he is available.

I still think BJGE will pick it back up, but it is just something to watch.

I'm a Pats fan, and as such I'll give you the same reaction I have of our RB's in real life, ughhhh. It's really a tough call because Belichick can do anything at any given time. I think that Ridley's solid performance W3 will ensure he gets touches going forward, but BJGE has proven he can get the 1-2 yarders when we need it and it's not as though hes really failed at that this season. His last game was a number of open field carries that he got stuffed on. Ridleys a better overall back I'd say in the long run, just because i think BJGE is a bit boring. However, look for BJGE to continue to get the TD's unless there's an indication Ridleys the guy in OAK and the next couple weeks. I could see Ridley getting about 60-70 total yards with the right amount of touches going forward-- but he's young and they're not gonna rush his development if hes not ready.

Bottom line:
Next 3 weeks, BJGE
Long-term- Ridley

But I just don't know if now's the time to make the move for Ridley if its at the expense of BJGE.

Long time Pats fan here, I would say stick with BJGE for now. The Pats need to start running the ball and they have more faith in BJGE. And don't be surprised if you start seeing Shane Vareen getting some carries too.

Me personally, I have stayed away from NE RB's every year in Fantasy because of the fact they are a passing team first and they can't make up their mind as to who is going to get carries at RB. If I had to choose I would say stick with BJGE and hope Bellicheck can make up his mind!
