WR - ATL
Expert 
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
In games where Calvin Ridley has suited up without Julio Jones, he has averaged 11+ targets, 100+ yards and 20+ PPR points per game. Now going into his first full season without Jones, no one around him has ever sniffed 1000 yards in a season and he will be in a lot of come from behind situations. It may not be the prettiest production, but Calvin Ridley is going to be a beast for your fantasy team this season as "2021's Garbage Time King."First they asked if he could succeed with scrubs at QB. The answer was yes. Then, they asked if he could succeed with a terrible coach. The answer was yes. Then they asked if he could replicate his success on a new team. Yes. In the air raid. Yes. With a running QB. Yes. No more questions.
Kyle Yates

I was all in on Calvin Ridley last season and it certainly paid off. Ridley finished as the overall WR4 in fantasy and many people were getting him as their WR2 on their roster! For as much as I liked Ridley last season, I might like him even more in 2021. Julio Jones is no longer on this team and Ridley should see a natural uptick in targets. Ridley's arrow is still pointing up and he just might be a value again this season, which is ridiculous to say when he's being drafted as a top-10 WR. A top-5 finish is not out of the realm of possibilities again for the star wideout - in fact, I might be so bullish as to guarantee it. My Updated Very Early Projection: 90-1349-11 receiving.It's hard to argue against Hopkins being a top-5 WR again this season when you see the target totals he commands in this offense. Even with guys like Green and Rondale Moore added to this WR room this off-season, Hopkins is still going to receive one of the heaviest target shares in the league. You're going to have to pay up to add Hopkins to your roster this year, but he's one of the safest investments in all of fantasy football. You know exactly what you're going to get from him week in and week out and that's invaluable for your lineup.

The comp for Ridley coming out of college was WR Amari Cooper. Ridley's route running is great and he's fast. The only knock is his size is smaller than ideal for a #1 WR. My concerns are Atlanta will look to Kyle Pitts as the top option when they're in the red zone. With an ADP of 24th overall, Ridley's price tag is a little expensive for me.It's hard to believe a WR as talented as DeAndre Hopkins only had 6 TDs in 2020. That should improve this year. He's more comfortable in the offense, has a better rapport with QB Kyler Murray, and the Cardinals upgraded their line. The loss of star DB Patrick Peterson in free agency could lead to plenty of shootouts in the NFC West. If that happens and I'm the Cardinals, I would play WarGames and Nuke them!
Mike Tagliere

Ridley finished as the No. 4 wide receiver with Julio Jones on the team, and that was while missing one full game. Just how much better can he be with Jones out of town? Some may worry about Ridley becoming "the guy" in the offense and seeing all the top cornerbacks, but we've already witnessed that in the games Jones missed. In the eight games Ridley has played without Jones, he's averaged 11.1 targets, 7.3 receptions, 107.0 yards, and 0.4 touchdowns, adding up to 20.1 PPR points per game. He should be a lock for 140-plus targets in 2021, making him a safe WR1.When drafting a wide receiver in the first couple rounds, you can't afford to miss on them. Is there anyone more reliable than Hopkins? He's now seen at least 150 targets in six straight seasons and has finished as a top-five receiver in five of them. Sure, the Cardinals added A.J. Green and Rondale Moore, but that's not going to stop Kyler Murray from going to his favorite target.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Hopkins saw 160 targets and a 29% target share in his first year with Arizona, and finished as the fifth-best wide receiver in fantasy in half-PPR formats. It wasn't a perfect season for the veteran, as he was somewhat inconsistent, being held to 55 or fewer yards in seven of his 16 games and scoring just six touchdowns. But at least some of that inconsistency was due to Kyler Murray playing through a shoulder injury, and the simple fact is Hopkins saw fewer than seven targets in just one game last year. The addition of Rondale Moore in the draft shouldn't have much of an impact on Hopkins, who will again command a dominant target share and be an outstanding WR1 again if healthy.

With Julio to Tennessee, I've moved Ridley above A.J. Brown.

Julio's likely departure only further secures more volume / ceiling (though run-heavier scheme likely on way) 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Ridley had 143 targets, 90 receptions, 1,374 yards, and 9 touchdowns. As long as Matt Ryan or suitable replacement is back, Ridley should be one of the best fantasy wide receivers in the NFL.Hopkins had 230.3 fantasy points in 16 games this year and Hopkins should continue to have fantasy success playing with Kyler Murray.
