Ridley hasn't looked like an incredibly talented runner this season, but last week's game against Minnesota (25-110-TD) showed us that he can score when volume comes his way. With the home opener against Oakland, coming West to East, you'd have to his chances at another 25 cracks.

The Patriots should control this one, and we should see similar results to last week from Ridley.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Pats rode him last week and is at home vs Raiders, so certainly has upside again.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
A week after playing only a quarter of the Patriots offensive snaps, Ridley rushed 25 times for 101 yards and one touchdown against the Vikings. He has RB2 appeal against a bad Oakland defense this week.
 
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
RB's can run on Oakland

I know that I'm ranking Ridley low this week after his 100 yard effort in week two but I still don't trust him as far as I can throw him. If he starts to contribute consistently, I will join the club. But not until then.
