While I'm not the biggest Ridley fan, he should no doubt have a good game agains the Bills.
With Dwyer getting the surprising boot from Pittsburgh, guess that means Redman is the guy for now. I'm sure we'll see a little of Felix Jones as well. Seems baffling to me on why the Steelers let Dwyer go but I wouldn't be shocked to see him reunite in Arizona after Ryan Williams gets injured.
  
Muntradamus

Ridley is looking good in camp and is even bigger/stronger than before. No need to worry about LeGarrette Blount or Brandon Bolden stealing the Redzone TDs. Ridley will have a much bigger role in the running game with Aaron Hernandez/Wes Welker out of the equation. The only frustrating thing about Ridley is the few weeks the Patriots play Musical Chairs with their RBs.
Redman is next in line if Bell does not do the job he is supposed to do. Redman has proved that can be a capable RB#3 if he gets the job, with RB#2 upside. For now forget about drafting Redman, but watch to make sure Bell is legit in the preseason before the Steelers go all in on the Rookie.
  
Sablich Brothers
The New York Times
Ridley posted 204 yards and 3 touchdowns in his 2 meetings with Buffalo last year.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Ridley should be a Top 10 fantasy back this week playing against a Bills team that allowed the second most fantasy points to running backs and will be starting a rookie UDFA at QB (Jeff Tuel).

Sure-fire RB1 upside
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Bills are iffy on defense but Pats run well and Ridley is generally reliable.
He's the starter with a good matchup. That has to count for something, right?
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Ridley was as consistent as they come last season and against the Bills he averaged 102 yards rushing and 1.5 touchdowns. The ability of the Patriots to live in the other teams red zone and the Bills perennially poor run defense makes him a no brainer start.
 
  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Ridley established himself last year as the lead dog in the Patriots' backfield, and he may even be able to improve upon his 1,200-yard output.
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
New England holds the number one ranked offensive line. With a depleted WR corps, Ridley should see an explosion this season as we are sure that New England will rely on a running game that features Ridley and Vareen. In 2012, Ridley had 1,263 rushing yards and 12 TDs. In comparison of Forte and Ridley, Forte will rack up more yards with the combination of rushing and receiving, whereas Ridley will see more end-zone time.
