I'm on board - choo choo! Should be a nice late round bargain provided this news is kept a bit quiet (e.g. sportsline doesn't post an update). Friggin Ridley was creeping into the 4th-early 5th rounds, which all but negated the value he had. loved him as a 7th round bargain - hated him as a 4th round RB2.

News: The Boston Herald reports that Patriots running back Stevan Ridley suffered a right knee injury during Thursday’s practice. The report says there’s no indication of the severity or how long he’ll be out, but "it could be a fortuitous sign that he watched the remainder of practice from the sideline before walking to the locker room under his own power."
Analysis: We hope that Ridley isn't seriously hurt, but it sounds like the Patriots could just be using caution to make sure he is OK. We doubt he will play Monday night against the Eagles, and this could open the door for Shane Vereen to take away reps from Ridley. He has been a star this offseason, and we hope he doesn't suffer a setback. As long as Ridley is healthy he should be considered a low-end No. 2 Fantasy running back worth a pick beginning in Round 6. If his knee is bad then his value will drop, but we don't want to consider that possibility.

Demps earned an Olympic silver medal in London as part of USA's 4x100 relay team. Before that, he was an electric return man and hybrid player for the University of Florida, piling up 2,470 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns during his four-year career. But at 5'7/190, his role with the Patriots is expected to be limited to special teams. Demps averaged 28.8 yards per kickoff return as a Gator. The Bucs and Jets were also interested.

That is enough for Sake to taste good.
If it still repels you, then you must be ill."
