2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
Ridley had a breakout campaign in 2020, setting career highs in receptions (90) and receiving yards (1,374) while posting 9 TD. Thrust into the WR1 role due to nagging injury issues to Julio Jones, he showed big play ability and the versatility to attack from the slot or the boundary, as a deep threat, and as a catch and run weapon on short and intermediate routes. With Jones gone, expect Ridley, who has averaged over 11 targets per game when Jones was out of the lineup, to be a full-on fantasy stud in 2021. His versatility, HC Arthur Smith's offensive creativity, and the presence of Kyle Pitts, Russell Gage, Hayden Hurst, and even Mike Davis and Christian Blake keeping defenses honest could equate to new heights for Ridley, who has proven to be nearly uncoverable at times.

News From The Past 90 Days
Falcons prepping Russell Gage for increased role
“I understand my role may have increased, but I’m ready for it.”
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jun 11, 10:05 am

Atlanta Falcons
With wide receiver Julio Jones off to Tennessee, the Falcons will count on Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage. “Russ has worked a lot in the slot, but like with all of our skill players, it’s our job to as coaches to push down with these guys and see what they can handle,” Smith said. “Russell has done a nice job in the slot, but we’ve moved Russell all over the place. Then we’ve got to make decisions as we get closer to the season. ... We envision Russ playing multiple spots.” (Atlanta Journal Constitution)

FFToday's Take: With Julio now catching passes from Ryan Tannehill, someone is going to have to step up in the Falcons offense. TE Kyle Pitts is expected to fill some of the vacated Julio targets but Gage should be first wideout in line to see a boost in production. He's an ideal late-round selection in drafts and should fly under the radar throughout the summer.


Injury Minor foot surgery for Calvin Ridley
Should be fine for camp
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jun 9, 12:18 pm

Atlanta Falcons
#Falcons WR Calvin Ridley recently underwent minor foot surgery from Dr Robert Anderson in Green Bay, source said. A little cleanup. No participation in minicamp, but should be fine for training camp. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Head coach declined to comment on Ridley's absence during minicamp. This doesn't sound serious and should only ring alarm bells if Ridley is sitting out practice once camp begins at the end of July. Ridley is top receiving option in Atlanta now that Julio Jones has moved on to Tennesee.


Falcons trade Julio Jones to Titans
Atlanta receivers
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Jun 6, 12:18 pm

Tennessee Titans
The Titans deal for Julio Jones: - The #Falcons get a 2022 2nd rounder and a 2023 4th rounder. - The #Titans get Julio Jones & a 6th rounder in 2023. - The #Titans take on Jones’ salary of $15.3M in 2021 and the rest of the deal. - #Falcons have $7.75M in dead money this year. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Given the Titans are inheriting the entire contract this is probably about as good of a deal as could be expected for Atlanta. This move is likely a ding to Matt Ryan's value and the offense as a whole as they lose one of the best playmakers in the game. That being said, this trade elevates rookie TE Kyle Pitts as the Falcons search for playmakers to go along with Calvin Ridley. The Titans get a much needed offensive weapon after losing Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith to free agency.
