Fantasy Football Maniax
The Patriots are likely to be a crowded backfield in 2014. Vereen should be the third down back with the most value. Stevan Ridley secured a victory when RB LeGarrette Blount signed with Pittsburgh, but expect Ridley to face competition in training camp, because of his past fumbling problems.
I still think Ridley will have a chance to fix his fumbling issues and reclaim his job, but even with RB LeGarrette Blount in Pittsburgh, the Patriots could still go with a classic Belichick timeshare.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
Only consider Vereen in PPR leagues.
If he can hold onto the ball he will put up solid numbers. He will play opposite of Shane Vereen on an offense that knows how to move the ball. Ridley will come cheap and I love his upside as my bye week filler and injury spot starter for 2014.

Shane Vereen looks like the back to own in New England and if he can somehow manage to stay healthy he can scoop up 200 plus carries and 70 plus receptions making him a player with RB1 upside, especially in PPR formats.
Stevan Ridley will get a final shot at being the Patriots big back and could be a tremendous value at his current ADP as he has the touchdown and carry potential for solid RB2 numbers if he can curtail his ‘fumblitis’.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Vereen has explosive talent and a big role but health continues to be a factor.
It's all about the fumbles. If Rids can take care of the ball, he can return to low-end RB1 production.

Wrist still not 100 percent, averaged just 2.8 receptions during the final 5 games last year.
Remains the favorite for early down duties with Blount out of the mix.
