Not sure of what the matchups are but I wouldn't bench Ridley for either of those two unless he's facing a really tough run defense.

Baltimore's Run defense is not as good as you think. They have actually allowed quite a few yards against the run. I'd start Ridely.

Yeah, that does make it tougher. I don't know much about Brown but I would say he has the more favorable matchup. I don't like the Ridley vs. Ravens match up at all now, and Texans have a good D too so McGahee could be stopped as well.

You have the same exact RBs I have (except McGahee) in one of my leagues. Start BJGE, Ridley and MJD. Brown has a good matchup but he hasn't proven he can produce at a high level and Houston's D is good enough that McGahee is not even a thought, in MY opinion. NE has done well against Baltimore the last decade and as mentioned by someone else, their run D isn't as nasty as it has been in years past. Even if it is, Ridley will be incorporated into the pass game as well for a few touches.

I think your lineup is the way it should be right now. Brown has a good matchup but he is not as good as Ridley. And keep in mind Ridley's matchup is not that bad. Baltimore is 19th against the run so far this season.
