We know who Ridley can be if he is given enough touches, and while injuries have hindered him of late, he may be afforded the opportunity to become a relevant fantasy back again this season for Detroit. At this point, Abdullah is expected to be the change of pace back, grabbing 10-12 carries per game. That means it is between Ridley and Zenner for the big-back role and plenty of carries in and out of the red zone.

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.

I like Ridley as a sleeper this season due to the Lions' need for a goal-line/short-yardage back
