Steelers' Stevan Ridley: Starting to show his age
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley did not play in Pittsburgh's 16-13 win over Cincinnati in Week 17.

The unrestricted free agent finished the 2018 season with 80 yards and a touchdown on 29 carries, adding three catches (on four targets) for 18 yards in 10 games. That is a long way from the 1,263 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns he had in 2012 with New England. At 29 years old, Ridley has lost a step, and with Jaylen Samuels (22 years old) emerging as the primary backup to James Conner (23 years old), it remains to be seen whether Ridley will return to Pittsburgh next season.

Steelers' Stevan Ridley: Disappointing performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley carried the ball three times for four yards and lost a fumble in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Saints.

Not only was Ridley ineffective on the rare occasion he was given an opportunity, but he also lost a fumble with 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and the Steelers up by four. He didn't touch the ball for the remainder of the game and has failed to capitalize on the absence of James Conner (ankle), totaling just 24 yards on 11 carries across three games. Even if Conner cannot return for a pivotal Week 17 matchup against the Bengals, Jaylen Samuels is the running back to roster in Pittsburgh.

Steelers' Stevan Ridley: Watches teammate explode in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley ran three times for 16 yards during Sunday's 17-10 win over New England.

Forced into action with James Conner (ankle) missing his second straight game, rookie running back Jaylen Samuels ran for a season-high 142 yards, while Ridley mostly watched from the sideline. With Conner expected back in Week 16, Ridley's role may be further reduced against a Saints defense that allows the third fewest fantasy points per game to running backs (14.1).

Steelers' Stevan Ridley: In line for expanded role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley could see his role expand with the news that James Conner (ankle) is not expected to play Sunday against the Patriots, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Jaylen Samuels wound up receiving the majority of the workload in Week 14 (92 total yards on 48 snaps), but Ridley did score a red zone touchdown as part of his five touches. Even with a revenge game narrative looming, Ridley figures to a boom-or-bust fantasy play, entirely reliant on the whims of a Pittsburgh offense that could be limped by quarterback Ben Roethlisbergers' rib injury.

Steelers' Stevan Ridley: Upcoming role uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley's role in the Steelers offense could take a hit with James Conner (ankle) questionable for Sunday's contest against the Patriots, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

With Conner out of the lineup last Sunday in Oakland, Jaylen Samuels earned most of the snaps (48 of 60 on offense) among active Pittsburgh running backs and outpaced Ridley in touches (18 to five) and yards from scrimmaged (92 to four). However, Ridley cashed in with a touchdown inside the five-yard line. If Conner returns this weekend, all bets are off as to how much work Ridley and Samuels reasonably can expect to get. That said, the above breakdown may be the reality if Conner sits out again, which makes Ridley a TD-or-bust option, at best.
