Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Receives endorsement from coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dan Quinn believes Ridley has potential to take a jump in his second season, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "What's exciting is that (his play) can go up a big notch," Quinn said Wednesday. "In his instance it's the route-running and the explosiveness he has, that connection with (Matt Ryan) continuing to grow, that's a really big piece."

Ridley was the second player selected at his position in last April's draft and his production far exceeded that of any other rookie wideout. The recently turned 24-year-old paced his class in receptions (64) and receiving yards (821) by narrow margins while blowing away all other rookie wide receivers with 10 touchdown catches -- Anthony Miller ranked second with seven. Though it will be tough for him to match that touchdown count in 2019, his growing connection with Ryan and favorable coverages opposite Julio Jones could allow Ridley to push for WR2 value.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Reaches 10 touchdowns as rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley caught all five of his targets, collecting 32 receiving yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 34-32 win against the Buccaneers.

Ridley's rookie campaign was accompanied by lofty expectations. The No. 26 overall pick delivered by coming within 180 receiving yards of a 1,000-yard season and providing 10 receiving touchdowns, three more than the second-best rookie wideout was able to manage in that category. Ridley carries strong potential to continue providing FLEX production in 2019, but with top targets Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Austin Hooper all projected to return, his upside seems capped as a mid-to-low tier WR2 option.

Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Scores long touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley caught three of five targets for 90 yards during Sunday's 24-10 win over the Panthers.

Ridley had a rather modest day heading into the fourth quarter before breaking for a 75-yard touchdown which gave his team a lead they would never relinquish. The big play propelled him to the team lead in receiving yards on the day and was the third time he reached the 90-yard mark in his rookie campaign. Ridley is up to 789 receiving yards and nine touchdowns heading into next Sunday's season finale against the Buccaneers.

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.
