Williams should benefit from RB Melvin Gordon holding out, he is a big target that will be more featured in the red zone without Gordon there to hammer the ball across the goal line.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 have been just 16 wide receivers who have been able to finish as a top-20 fantasy receiver with less than 100 targets over the last 10 years. Williams just did it with 66 targets, while Tyler Lockett did it with 71 targets in 2018. No other wide receivers can say they did it with less than 79 targets. The exit of Tyrell Williams in free agency means a lot more targets and consistency is in store for Mike Williams in 2019. It's rare to find a wide receiver being drafted outside the top-25 wide receivers with top-10 upside, but Williams has itIt'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 wideout 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
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
This is what upside looks like. After scoring 11 touchdowns last year and making significant progress as the season went on, Williams is in a great situation this year. Tyrell Williams is gone (though Hunter Henry returns) so even if he sees a downturn in his touchdown rate, he should make up for it with more targets. Draft him as a borderline WR2 but there's a lot more upside than that.Ridley scored 10 touchdowns as a rookie, a remarkable total, and showed elite skills as a receiver. But he was the model of inconsistency, as five of those 10 touchdowns came in a two-game stretch. With another year under his belt, expect an increase in both the 92 targets and 64 receptions he had last year. He's a solid WR2 with upside.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
I am slowly warming up to Mike Williams a bit more but still do not love his ADP. I do think he is safe enough at his ADP though where he will still be productive even if he doesn't break out this season. His 11 TDs are going to be hard to repeat and 43/664 line obviously leaves a lot to be desired. Needs to take a step up.Calvin Ridley had an awesome rookie season going 64/821/10, including the one game he absolutely torched the Saints for 146 yards and three TDs. The only problem is that he was an extremely volatile option. He ended within the top 20 overall WRs five times and outside the top 45 eight times. Hooper is expected to take another step up in the offense and Sanu will continue to be a thorn in the side for fantasy production. I just don't see how he makes a big jump, especially when he was so productive in the TD department.
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
Williams was insanely efficient despite being the 4th target. With Tyrell Williams gone and the threat of Melvin Gordon holding out, Williams could surge forward, perhaps all the way into WR1 territory. There is some risk here, but the upside is spectacular.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.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
I think William's ADP is fair, since he does come with a ton of upside if injuries were to occur, but he needs injuries to pay off his ADP. He's currently the 4th option on the offense behind Keenan Allen, Melvin Gordon and Hunter Henry. That really caps the upside of a low volume, TD dependent receiver. Last season he scored 10 TD's on just 43 receptions...a stat line that is going to regress this season. Again, Williams does have upside if guys go down, but I can't justify drafting a player this early when they need injuries to pay off.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!
