Scouting report

ATL WR Calvin Ridley- Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs Panthers

Calvin Ridley had an interesting outing in Week 7. He once again led the way with 10 targets, but only hauled in four of those targets for just 26 yards. He did score his second touchdown of the season. He has double-digit targets in four straight games. But the arrival of Kyle Pitts may soon start to limit the fantasy ceiling of Ridley, especially as Atlanta starts using Pitts more on the outside. Fortunately for Ridley, Carolina is one of his favorite teams to play. He's had at least 130 yards receiving in two of his last four outings against the Panthers. He's a WR2 with WR1 upside.

ATL WR Calvin Ridley- Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Dolphins

Calvin Ridley is set to return this week after taking off Week 5 due to personal issues. He should have no trouble getting right back on track against a poor Dolphins defense, including Byron Jones and Xavien Howard being banged up. Ridley is our No. 10 half-PPR WR for the week and continues to be a strong start.

ATL WR Calvin Ridley- Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs Jets

Ho-hum, another solid day for Calvin Ridley. Now if only he can score some touchdowns, as he still has just one through four games. But Matt Ryan is feeding him the ball. 13 targets against Washington led the way again. Maybe a trip across the pond will change Ridley's fortunes in regards to touchdowns. Regardless, he's always a strong play each week. This week is no exception.

*UPDATE: Calvin Ridley is out in Week 5

ATL WR Calvin Ridley- Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 vs Washington

Calvin Ridley is still Matt Ryan's favorite target. Another 11 targets against the Giants and 29 for the season. He has at least 50 yards and five catches in every game so far in 2021. No reason to shy away from him now.

ATL WR Calvin Ridley- Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Giants

As Atlanta's offense goes, so does Calvin Ridley. He caught his first touchdown pass of the season and had his first double-digit target day against the Buccaneers. As long as Matt Ryan is allowed to continue throwing the football, Ridley is going to be fed targets, giving him all the opportunity in the world. He's a top ten receiver this week, especially after seeing what Terry McLaurin did to the Giants in Week 2 (11-107-1).

ATL WR Calvin Ridley- Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Buccaneers

Calvin Ridley's 2021 start was a far cry from his 2020 start (9/130/2). Still, he ties for the team lead with eight targets. There shouldn't be any concern going forward with Ridley. Matt Ryan will find him. Plus, Tampa allowed two 100-yard receivers in Week 1. Ridley should be excited for Sunday to turn things around, especially if he can come close to his Week 15 performance from last season of 10/163/1 on 14 targets.

ATL WR Calvin Ridley - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs Eagles

What will Calvin Ridley do for an encore of his epic 2020 season? It begins against an Eagles team that allowed him to eclipse over 100 yards receiving with a touchdown in the teams' last meeting in 2019. He'll likely draw Darius Slay, who certainly had his moments (and not in a good way) in 2020 (remember DK Metcalf against him last season?) Ridley is a top-five receiver for us this week.
