What on earth are you talking about? He fumbled more than once this season? I'll answer that for you - he has fumbled the same number of times as Ray Rice after 2 games.
Ridley is obviously hurt by Amendola being injured as well as the absence of Gronk. How savvy could you possibly be if you don't take that into account? OR are you in an 8 or 10 team league where you can salvage a quality free agent?
I have Ridley too and chose not to take Forte since I had him in a separate league. There is no RB out there that you can trust aside from beastmode and AD. Too early to be hitting the panic button. Ridley is one of the guys that I would trust given his sturdiness and likelihood to develop some consistency. Especially if the wideouts there get on the same page by the end of the first quarter of the season....remember? Its week 2 only. End of the quarter of the season will be in 2 weeks..
There seems to be some fire in your voice regarding such an inconsequential topic so I'll chalk it up to the refs at the end of the Wisconsin ASU game (horrible horrible work by refs).
Actually, he nearly fumbled once early on before losing his first 'actual' fumble. I understand that he is hurt by the loss of Amendola and Gronk...but it's still Tom Brady behind center, and teams still have to respect his ability. So it's not like they are loading 9 in the box. Of course, a better passing attack will open things up. My main point of contention was he was outplayed by Vereen that game and is also not the pass catcher Vereen is, which hurts his value. Obviously with Vereen injured Ridley will be the "workhorse" and Gronk is coming back soon. But it's still Thompkins/Dobson/Edelman on the outside. And the Jets/Bills/Dolphins all field some strong run defenses this year, which hurts his value given he has 4 games remaining against them. And games against TB (top run D), Broncos, Texans and the AFC North. You don't seem to be taking that into account.
It's a 12-team league btw.
And as far as your last point, McCoy over Ridley by a long shot, given his pass catching ability
