Vereen - Patriots had the second most carries last year, and unlike Seattle (the only team to beat them) the QB isn't siphoning off anything. While Ridley may get the bulk of the carries, Vereen will cannibalize most of Woodhead's carries and catches. Plus, if Gronk or Amendola (or likely both) get hurt, they might run more. I wouldn't be stunned to see Ridley notch 300 carries and Vereen 200+. Not to mention the fact that they will both get catches.

Bernard - A close number 2 I think. People keep throwing around the name "CJ Spiller" talking about the guy. He's not as explosive as Spiller, but he's also behind a better line and in a more balanced offense. I can buy him being a solid flex play each and every week.

Chris Ivory - Thing is, he might have the highest ceiling of these three. Shonn Green might have been the worst starting RB in the league last year, and yet finished in the top 20. Ivory is far more explosive and has the capacity to do much, much better. Nick Mangold is still a freak of nature and Sanchez is a freak of a different form. The catch is that Ivory gets banged up too easily, and that's without having ever been a feature back. He has the highest ceiling of these three, but a much much lower floor than Vereen or Bernard.

Hillman - Post above me nailed it.
