    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Team high in receptions

    Calvin Ridley caught eight of 11 targets for 61 yards in Sunday's 17-14 win over the Giants.Ridley led the Atlanta Falcons in receptions and targets, but besides a long gain of 20 yards, he mostly was a factor on underneath routes. Through three games, Atlanta's top wideout is yet to surpass 65 yards, but he's hauled in at least five passes each contest. After tying for fifth league-wide with 1,374 receiving yards last season, Ridley still hasn't enjoyed his breakout performance under new coach Arthur Smith, yet he remains a reliable option ahead of Week 4's matchup against Washington.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Finds end zone in Week 2 loss

    Calvin Ridley secured seven of 10 targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Atlanta Falcons' 48-25 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.Ridley made his first 2021 trip to the end zone in the third quarter, hauling in a three-yard pass from Matt Ryan to close the Falcons' deficit to 11 points at the time. The Falcons' No. 1 wideout looked the part a bit more than during a pedestrian Week 1 effort, and he'll look to capitalize on a questionable Giants secondary in a Week 3 road battle.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Five grabs in Week 1 loss

    Calvin Ridley brought in five of eight targets for 51 yards in the Atlanta Falcons' 32-6 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.Ridley did pace the Falcons in receptions and receiving yards on the afternoon while also tying Kyle Pitts for the team lead in targets. Nevertheless, Ridley's final line has to be considered a fantasy disappointment in what was the Falcons' first game of the post-Julio Jones era. Time will tell whether Ridley is miscast as a No. 1 receiver, as it's difficult to draw any definitive conclusions from a game that got as out of hand in the second half as Sunday's did. The problem for Ridley and his offensive teammates is that matters could be even thornier Week 2, considering a road matchup against the Buccaneers awaits.

    Calvin Ridley is in uniform ahead of Sunday's preseason contest against the Browns, Michael Rothstein of reports.It's unclear if Ridley will make his exhibition debut, but Matt Ryan and Mike Davis also are dressed, meaning the Atlanta Falcons may be trotting out their first-team offense for spell in the first half.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Feels good early in camp

    Calvin Ridley is back at full strength and says his practice reps have been managed as part of a long-term plan, Michael Rothstein of reports.Ridley had minor foot surgery this spring and was held out of Atlanta's offseason program, but he doesn't appear to have any restrictions at camp, apart from the Atlanta Falcons limiting his reps in anticipation of a busy season. He put up 90-1,374-9 on 143 targets last year, and with Julio Jones now out of the picture, Ridley is among the favorites to lead the NFL in targets and receiving yards.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Returns for first day of camp

    Calvin Ridley (foot) is going through individual drills at the beginning of Thursday's practice, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.comreports.Ridley is back on the field for the start of training camp after a minor foot surgery prevented him from participating in June minicamp. Even if the Atlanta Falcons ease him into team drills, he'll have plenty of time to ramp up for Week 1 against the Eagles (Sept. 12). With Julio Jones out of the picture, Ridley is among the favorites to lead the NFL in targets this year, though new coach Arthur Smith presumably hopes to install a more balanced offense in Atlanta.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Undergoes minor foot surgery

    Calvin Ridley recently underwent minor foot surgery, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.Ridley wasn't present for the start of minicamp for an unspecified reason, but he apparently underwent a cleanup procedure on his foot recently. He won't participate in minicamp, but he could be ready for the start of training camp in late July. Even if the 26-year-old misses the start of training camp, he's "not in danger" of missing the start of the season, according to Jeff Schultz of The Athletic. Ridley is slated to begin the 2021 campaign as Atlanta's clear No. 1 receiver after Julio Jones was traded to the Titans over the weekend.

    Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Tops depth chart after Jones trade

    Calvin Ridley is the clear No. 1 receiver in Atlanta with the team having agreed to trade Julio Jones to Tennessee, reports.Ridley had 90 catches for 1,374 yards and nine touchdowns on 143 targets last season while playing in 15 games to Jones' nine. Jones eclipsed 143 targets in all but one of the previous six seasons, topping out at 203 in 2015, and Ridley also can expect to have the ball thrown his way more frequently as the undisputed No. 1 wide receiver in Atlanta's pass-heavy offense. Ridley will have to contend with the opponent's No. 1 cornerback more often with Jones no longer in town to take away attention, but the increase in volume should more than make up for the higher difficulty of matchups.
