Stevan Ridley racked up 95 total yards of offense during Sunday's game between the Patriots and Cardinals. We break down the fantasy implications.

Stevan Ridley rushed for 71 yards on 18 carries, adding 24 yards on three receptions during Sunday's game between the New England Patriots and the Arizona Cardinals. Ridley did not find the end zone one week after scoring a touchdown in the season opener.

Fantasy Impact: Though it's disappointing that Ridley was unable to find the end zone, he did put up solid yardage for a second straight week. The starting job appears to his out of the backfield, with only Danny Woodhead (eight carries, 18 yards) seeing significant carries during the game. Shane Vereen was out for the game. His return could eat away at Ridley's numbers.
