   Top 15 Fantasy Running Back Monographs! Monograph – A highly detailed and thoroughly documented study or paper written about a limited area of a subject or field of inquiry. 11. Patriots – Stevan Ridley, NE (10) was able to produce 10 games with at least 17 or more carries which led to 10 games with 70-plus yards rushing while adding 10 touchdowns to his breakout season in 2012.  As for a low-end No.1/high-end No.2 Fantasy RB Ridley is a VERY SOLID choice as a Top-15 Overall pick in Round 2 with a bit more value in standard league formats. Ridley dominated carries for New England with 290 for 1,263 yards 4.4 YPC and 12 touchdowns during the regular season. Compare that to Danny Woodhead (76 carries) who is now out in San Diego and Shane Vereen (62) who has a ton of SLEEPER potential, and you’ll see how much coach Bill Belichick relied on and will continue to rely on Ridley. Subtract Woodhead’s 76 carry work-load and that equals out to about 5 extra carries per week Ridley COULD ...

For Brandon Spikes the message is clear

Last season New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick asked Brandon Spikes a simple question; "Do you know how good you can be?".  Brandon did not have the answer at the moment but eventually he looked in the mirror and asked himself the same question. His breakout 2012 campaign was as he put it the "steppingstone" to the answer. In a season where Spikes...

Patriots’ Competition for Roster Spots at Defensive End Could Improve Players, Pass Rush in 2013

For the Patriots’ pass defense to improve in 2013, it will have to come from two units. Obviously, the secondary has to be better. And with Aqib Talib back at cornerback, Devin McCourty at safety and some new blood in the back end of the defense, that squad should be much improved from last season. It also has to come from the defensive line, though. The Patriots’ pass rush was...
