Notes for Player Combination
 
Calvin Ridley
WR - ATL
Expert 
Joe Pisapia
FantasyPros
 Despite back to back 1,000 yard rushing seasons, the Broncos were continuously trying to replace Phillip Lindsay and after a down year in 2020 with injuries, he finds himself now in Houston. David Johnson is still ahead of him on the depth chart, but should an injury occur to DJ, Lindsay immediately becomes one of the more intriguing handcuffs. The lack of clarity with Deshaun Watson clouds this entire offense. Lindsay is bench depth at RB in deeper leagues at this time.
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
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. 
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." 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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. 
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
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.
