It's an interesting situation for Ridley. He entered the season as a sexy pick, but his fumbling issues have been compounded by injury concerns. On top of that, his performance hasn't been there at 3.7 yards per carry for a team that usually is among the elite in YPC.
There still isn't anything specific on how the Pats will use Ridley. Nobody has really stepped up their game enough to usurp his role as the primary TD guy, but his job is far from safe.
Fantasy impact: His fantasy value is still in the toilet. The good news is that he has a nice matchup and the Pats are going to have to use him. Now that he's healthy enough to suit up, he's a nice little buy-low player in most formats. LeGarrette Blount's value will take a hit and the Patriots could also have an overall uptick in production with Rids back.
