Stevan Ridley released by Colts

The Indianapolis Colts have released RB Stevan Ridley on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

The 2016 offseason carousel that is Ridley continues to spin as the Colts parted ways with the veteran just one week after signing him. This doesn't say much about Ridley's value this season as the Colts need help at the running back position and he did not make the cut. Ridley has been hampered by his lingering ACL injury and may have to wait a while before he catches on with another club. The Colts may have interest in Dexter McCluster, who was released by the Titans on Friday.

Stevan Ridley signs with Colts

The Indianapolis Colts and RB Stevan Ridley agreed to terms on a deal that has not yet been disclosed.

Fantasy Impact

It didn't take very long for Ridley to find a new suitor as he signed with the Colts on Sunday. The Colts have question marks at the running back position behind an aging Frank Gore and Ridley will compete for a roster spot for the remainder of the preseason. If he makes the final 53-man cut, he could have a significant role as the No. 2 or No. 3 rusher on Indianapolis' depth chart.

Stevan Ridley released by Lions

The Detroit Lions have released RB Stevan Ridley on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

The Lions appear content with entering the 2016 season with Zach Zenner as their No. 3 running back behind Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick. Zenner will also serve as Detroit's short-yardage back in the upcoming campaign with Riddick assuming the role as their primary receiver out of the backfield. For Ridley, he could attempt to catch on with another organization, however, he may have to wait until the season gets under way to find another job in the NFL.

Stevan Ridley turns in mixed performance against Bengals

Veteran tailback Stevan Ridley managed 13 yards on four carries against Cincinnati on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact

While Ridley's stat line looks better than Theo Riddick's, his boom or bust production is actually less desirable. Ridley broke through the Bengals' d-line for a 10-yard jog, but produced just 3 yards on his remaining three carries. Owners looking to draft running back depth out of Detroit are better served looking to the younger Zach Zenner.

Stevan Ridley uninspiring in Lions' preseason debut

Journeyman running back Stevan Ridley didn't do much with his first carries as a Detroit Lion, totaling just 14 yards on five carries, and catching his lone target for five yards.

Fantasy Impact

Thought to have an inside track to make Detroit's fifty-three man roster after signing an $840,000 contract with $250,000 guaranteed, Ridley is at risk of falling behind undrafted free agents George Winn and Zach as he's had a lackluster showing in camp and against the Steelers. The next few preseason games are significant opportunities for Ridley to prove his worth in the Lions' backfield, and fantasy owners should avoid him until his role is secured.
