Was the No. 14 WR in FAN PPG at the time he suffered ACL injury in Week 10 - avoided PUP and is on track to play in Week 1 
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Ridley is the 22nd WR off the board in .5 PPR leagues. Last season, he played in 62% of the falcons plays and had 92 targets. He ended with 10 TDs but was still, at times, playing second fiddle to Mohammed Sanu (The GOAT QB). If Ryan regresses and Ridley's efficiency decreases, Ridley will be a WR4. I'm not comfortable with him as my WR2.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Kupp is not going to begin the season on the PUP but that doesn't mean he won't end up sitting to start the season. The fact of the matter is that it hasn't been all that long since his major injury, and like Allen Robinson showed last year, optimism in these cases can be a dangerous game.Last season Ridley played just 61% of the Falcons snaps. Most consider him to be the clear-cut #2 in Atlanta, but outside of a few big flashes, Ridley was the #3 option for Matt Ryan behind Sanu. That should change this year, but with Julio hogging the majority of the targets, Ridley's upside is still stunted.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Kupp only played half a season last year and he posted 40 receptions for 566 yards and 6 touchdowns. He is one of the best slot receivers in the NFL and he should be ready to pick up where he left off in Week 1 this year.Ridley had 64 receptions for 821 yards and 10 receiving touchdowns last year. He is a solid WR3 bet that will likely have less touchdowns in 2019, but more receptions and receiving yards.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There will be some who are concerned about the after-effects of Kupp's ACL injury, but you shouldn't be one of them. With modern medicine, players bounce back from them all the time. Throughout his two years in the NFL, Kupp has posted WR2 or better numbers in 47.8 percent of his games, which is better than the career marks of Jarvis Landry, Brandin Cooks, Keenan Allen, and T.Y. Hilton. He may lack the upside of some, but his consistency is great. He's a solid low-end WR2, but an even better high-end WR3It's not often we see a rookie wide receiver make an impact in fantasy football the way Ridley did, especially when there's a stud wide receiver on the other side of the field like Julio Jones. Despite that, Ridley popped-off for 821 yards and 10 touchdowns, finishing as the WR20. While some would expect him to build on that, the Falcons aren't likely to throw the ball as much as they did in 2018 due to their defensive stars being healthy again. He should offer a bit more consistency, though, and if something were to happen to Jones, he'd immediately be a top-15 play every week
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
I will not be drafting Cooper Kupp this season. The Rams have said that he's going to be ready for week 1, but he suffered his ACL injury too late in the season to be back to his old self this quickly. For where he's going in drafts you need him to perform like he did to start last season. So the best case scenario is that he returns value...but he's not going to out produce his ADP...and he's far more likely to disappoint. There are still a bunch of studs on the board where he's going, take one of them instead.Calvin Ridley is an extremely interesting pick this season. There doesn't seem to be any buzz around him, even after his great rookie season. He finished with a 64/821/10 stat line in his first season, and while the per reception TD rate is going to regress, there's plenty of room for his volume to increase. Ridley commanded 92 targets last year, while only playing on 62% of Matt Ryan's snaps. We should expect that number to be at least 80% this season, leading to a much larger target market share. As it currently stands, I have Ridley with an extremely reasonable 18.5% target market share, and 10% regression on his TD's per reception. Under those settings he's projected to finish with a 70/881/9.5 stat line...which is the 17th highest projection among WR's. Yet he's being drafted as the WR 26. That's great value!
