Rookie WR Riley Ridley flashes at Bears minicamp

We’re continuing to see plenty of Riley Ridley catches during the spring practices. He caught a touchdown Tuesday after Gabriel’s almost-score and seemed to be on the same page with Mitch Trubisky during the 11-on-11 work.

“So for Riley, he’s a really good route runner,” Nagy said. “His attention to detail is really high. And now I think the game is slowly starting to slow down for him and he has very natural hands so when the ball’s in the air he’s a 50-50 guy. He’ll get those footballs. But he’s playing really well.”

Fantasy Impact: 

With Anthony Miller sidelined, Ridley appears to be getting more work, which could benefit his campaign to make Chicago's 53-man roster this season. His brother Calvin had a productive first year in Atlanta (64-821-10), and is being drafted as WR24 so far this season. If Ridley continues this trajectory, he could become fantasy relevant in an offense on the upward swing.
