Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Snags five passes in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley caught five of seven targets for 42 yards during Sunday's 40-14 win over Arizona.

The catches were there for Ridley, but the big-play production still eludes him. Through his last five games, Ridley is averaging just 9.95 yards per catch, nearly four full yards fewer than his average through the first nine games of the season. The rookie burst onto the scene with six touchdowns in his first four games, but has scored just twice since then and has topped 50 receiving yards just twice in that span. Perhaps next Sunday can rekindle some magic as Ridley faces off against a Carolina defense that surrendered his first career touchdown in Week 2.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Completely neutralized by Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley caught one of four targets, managing 10 receiving yards during Sunday's 34-20 loss to the Packers.

Ridley has been shut down over each of the past two weeks against top-seven pass defenses in Green Bay and Baltimore, compiling a combined 32 receiving yards on four catches in those contests (had averaged 57.8 receiving yards per contest between Weeks 1 and 12). Following an extremely promising eight-game run to begin his NFL career (4.1 catches and 57.9 yards per game, with seven touchdowns through Week 9), Ridley has exceeded three receptions or 40 receiving yards in a game only once over his past five outings, recording one touchdown over that span. In Week 15, Atlanta plays host to one of the league's best pass defenses in Arizona, which has allowed 210.8 yards per game through the air.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Good to go for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (hand/elbow) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's contest at Green Bay, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Ridley has posted impressive peripheral numbers as a rookie, namely 9.1 yards per target and a 16 percent touchdown rate. That said, he's tallied his eight TDs in five different games and surpassed 50 yards receiving just five times in 12 contests. A productive outing is very possible this weekend against a Packers defense that has conceded 165.6 receiving yards per game and 17 total touchdowns to wideouts in 12 outings this season.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Logs limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (hand/elbow) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Ridley's reps were capped for the second day in a row, but there haven't been any reports suggesting his availability for Sunday's game against the Packers in serious jeopardy. Top wideout Julio Jones (foot) seems to be less healthy than Ridley, though coach Dan Quinn said he expects Jones will also be good to go for the Week 14 matchup. In the event Jones fails to progress as anticipated, Ridley and Mohamed Sanu would both see sizable boosts in their respective fantasy outlooks for the weekend.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Limited by pair of injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley (hand/elbow) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Another week, another new injury. Two weeks ago, he dealt with a thigh concern before tearing up the Saints secondary on Thanksgiving to the tune of eight catches (on 13 targets) for 93 yards and one touchdown. Last week, he tended to ankle and elbow issues, only to post a 3-22-0 line on five targets this past Sunday against a staunch Ravens secondary. At the moment, Ridley is contending with hand and elbow injuries. Coming off the second-worst performance of his rookie campaign, yardage-wise, he'll be looking to bounce back Sunday versus an exploitable Packers defense that has allowed 13.5 YPC and 17 total touchdowns to wide receivers in 12 games this season.
