Fantasy Impact:

It's official now. Falcons have locked up their star WR and deservedly so. $11.1M is what Ridley will be making on his fifth-year option. Ridley has been nothing short of spectacular since coming into the league. He is a route-running technician and a touchdown machine. He enjoyed a breakout season in 2020 catching 90 passes for 1,374 yards and nine touchdowns. Him and Julio are one of, if not, the best WR tandemsin the NFL. Ridley is a lock and loaded WR1 in all fantasy formats in 2021.
