2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Ridley fell a little further in the draft than most experts projected, but he was still selected in the 1st round and arguably went to one of the better landing spots. Early depth chart projections have Ridley ahead of Mohamed Sanu for the WR2 spot, putting Sanu in a primarily slot role. For the dynasty community, there were serious questions about Ridley's age and his long-term probability to become a WR1, but for redraft, his route running and draft capital put him in a decent position to succeed in year 1.

In 2017, the WR24 scored 120.7 fantasy points in standard scoring leagues. Since 2000, only 25 wide receivers have scored this many points during their rookie season. Of this group, Lee Evans had the fewest targets with just 75. Ridley will likely need at least this many targets to become a WR2 and since 2015, Dan Quinn's WR2 has averaged 14.7% of the team's targets which would have been 78 in 2017. If Ridley can manage that workload, he could be a WR3 with WR2 upside, but the most likely outcome is that Ridley will be a WR4 with flex value.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Sanu, Ridley sit out practice Thursday
Hip and ankle injuries, respectively

Atlanta Falcons
Wide receivers Calvin Ridley and Mohamed Sanu left the win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers due to injuries. Both were held out practice on Thursday. (atlantafalcons.com)

FFToday's Take: With Atlanta playing on Monday night, Thursday was the first practice of the week for the Falcons. At the moment, there seems to be more optimism Ridley will play than Sanu. If either one is forced to sit, owners should be able to count on more targets for Julio Jones and Austin Hooper. The Giants have been good against receivers and tight ends, but matchups mean little to Jones. While Hooper probably needs to be started in most leagues, his recent run of productivity could come to an end.
