How might the Patriots RBs shake out?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Stevan Ridley led all Patriots running backs in snaps played the last two seasons, but ESPN believes that nothing will be handed to him and he'll have to earn his keep this year. Additionally, ESPN thinks Ridley would not have led the backs in snaps had Shane Vereen stayed healthy for a full season. Vereen played nearly as many snaps as Ridley as it were. 

The belief from ESPN's Mike Reiss is that there will be a tandem situation "if everyone is healthy, with the numbers trending heavier toward Vereen."

Behind Ridley and Vereen are Brandon Bolden and rookie James White. Either one of them could earn decent playing time with a strong training camp and/or turnover issues from Ridley or Vereen.

Patriots select RB James White in Round 4
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

With the 130th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots selected running back James White from Wisconsin.

White spent his first three seasons at Wisconsin behind Montee Ball. When he took over in 2013, he amassed for 1,444 yards on 221 carries with 13 touchdowns on the ground. He also posted 39 receptions for 300 yards and two scores in the passing game. He will likely battle for the third -string spot behind Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen.

Shane Vereen still dealing with wrist injury
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Patriots running back Shane Vereen said his previously broken left wrist still isn't back to the point where it was before the injury last September, reports ESPN.

"It's not going to feel great tomorrow, it's not going to feel awful. It won't be 100 percent probably for a while, but it's good enough and I'm working on strengthening it and getting it back," Vereen said via the team's official website.

Vereen suffered a broken bone in the wrist in a season-opening victory against the Bills on Sept. 8 and had surgery that sidelined him until a Nov. 18 game against the Carolina Panthers. He said that his wrist feels good and "through most of the end of the season, I was fine with it." 

If you project Vereen's stats over 16 games he would have finished with 88 carries for 408 yards and two touchdowns and 94 catches for 854 yards and six touchdowns.

Shane Vereen produces 93 yards from scrimmage
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Patriots running back Shane Vereen ran four times for 34 yards and caught five passes for 59 yards in the AFC Championship Game loss at Denver. Vereen was targeted eight times, second-most on the team.

Vereen, however, was unable to score on a 2-point conversion run in the fourth quarter that would have pulled New England within eight points. Turning 25 in March, Vereen is signed for 2014 at $847,000.
