He still has upside if he's the guy, but the feeling is Vereen minimizes him considerably starting now.
Still has upside but he's in a time share and matchup is horrible.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
Boom or bust week, start with caution
He will probably sneak in the end-zone once this week, but don't expect many yards out of him.

While a wait and see approach might be best with Ridley, it doesn't appear that anyone has jumped him on the depth chart. This is a decent matchup if you're desperate at RB.
