To this point, it’s safe to say Pittsburgh Steelers running back Stevan Ridley has had a quiet season. That may be putting it lightly, as he’s seen very little work and hasn’t been a part of any of the team’s last three games. But that may be set to change in Week 14 due to the unfortunate injury news about starter James Conner.
As NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport revealed, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin stated Conner will not play against the Oakland Raiders due to a leg injury suffered in Week 13.
It’s a brutal spot for both Conner and the Steelers. The team is pushing for the AFC North crown, but have the Baltimore Ravens hot on their trail. Regardless, Conner’s workload will go elsewhere this week, and it will be interesting to see how the team opts to approach the running back position.
Let’s take a look at the fantasy football outlook for Ridley and break down whether he’s worth a waiver wire add.
Should You Add Stevan Ridley on Waivers?
You could probably do worse than adding Ridley, but it’s only a move to consider if you have a roster spot and are in a 14-team league or larger. In 10 or 12-team leagues, there’s virtually no chance you’re using Ridley, or ever taking him off the bench, unless Jaylen Samuels couldn’t get the job done.
