Draft note
by John Paulsen
As a rookie, Ridley finished as the No. 19 receiver in half-PPR formats behind a strong 64-821-10 line on 90 targets. He admitted to being worn out on Sundays due to the way he practices--he only knows one speed--and that may have resulted in a bit of a fade down the stretch. He fared very well as a rookie in Matt Harmon’s #ReceptionPerception charting, and should see an uptick in targets with Mohamed Sanu taking more of a backseat in Ridley’s second season.

ATL WR Calvin Ridley - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Ridley was one of the only bright spots for the Falcons in Week 1. He finished with four receptions on six targets for 64 yards, one touchdown, 13% of the team targets, and 22% of the team air yards. He finished as the Half PPR WR25 with 14.4 fantasy points. Ridley continues to be a highly efficient receiver but he will need more volume to regularly put up WR2 fantasy numbers.

An increased workload could start this week because the Falcons are implied for 25.25 points at home and will face an Eagles secondary who gave up 380 yards against the Washington Redskins in Week 1. The Eagles are ranked seventh-worst against wide receivers according to our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. 4for4 rankings expert, John Paulsen has Ridley ranked as the Half PPR WR22 and is flex worthy in a potential shootout (Over/Under: 52.5).
