Stevan Ridley has been primary back in the Patriots run game this season, but Shane Vereen managed to eat into his workload even more on Sunday. Ridley carried the ball 13 times for just 28 yards and a touchdown, while Vereen saw 11 carries for 40 yards and a score.
The game was well out of hand by the third quarter, so Ridley didn't need to see the majority of carries down the stretch.
Fantasy Impact: Despite the worry of running backs in Bill Belichick's, Ridley has proven his worth for owners in 2012.He hasn't been phased out of the offense at all, and continues to find the end zone, as this was the third consecutive game he's scored in.
Vereen could be a potential flex play against the Jets in Week 12, as he performed well against his divisional foe back in Week 7. However, he's still situated behind Ridley in the pecking order.
