ESPN - [Full Article]

The main thing that stands out in New England Patriots offensive snap totals against Tampa Bay is the even split at running back between Brandon Bolden and Stevan Ridley, with 26 apiece, and then LeGarrette Blount playing 21 snaps (5 in first half, 16 in second half). That is the true definition of the running-back-by-committee approach.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's a frustrating fact of life for Ridley owners who likely took him high with the hopes of him being a solid RB2 every week. At least in Week 3, it was a committee approach with Blount getting mopup work in the second half against his former team. Brandon Bolden's return isn't helping Ridley either, because of his ability in the passing game. New England's running attack seems to change week-to-week but Ridley is looking like a risky play, while Bolden is a guy to pick up in PPR leagues.
