Calvin Ridley scores twice in Week 1 loss

Falcons WR Calvin Ridley caught 9-of-12 targets for 130 yards in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Seahawks. and two touchdowns

Fantasy Impact

Ridley went ballistic in the season opener. While Julio Jones had a 9/157/0 line, Ridley blew him out of the water with his 9/130/2 line. While we can't expect this every game, Ridley's fast start is a tremendous sign for his potential 2020 breakout. Ridley gets the Cowboys in Week 2.

Calvin Ridley doing more leg workouts

Calvin Ridley is doing more leg workouts to become a 1,000-yard wide receiver.

Fantasy Impact

Ridley was on pace for his first 1,000 yard season until an abdominal injury cut his 2019 campaign short. He hauled in 63 receptions on 93 targets for 866 yards and seven touchdowns across 13 games. "I'm not going to lie, I'm real hungry to show people that I'm easily a 1,000-yard receiver, easily - and even better," Ridley said after an on-field strength and conditioning session on Tuesday. "I think that's what it is for me. I'm always confident in myself, and I'm just really hungry and want to help the team win as much as I can." Ridley is strong WR2 in fantasy and is currently 16th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus rankings.

Calvin Ridley: Dirk Koetter says ‘you’re going to see a jump in his game’

According to Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, the best is yet to come for third-year WR Calvin Ridley.

Fantasy Impact

The 2018 first-round pick out of Alabama has drawn a ton of praise from Koetter, who recently said of third-year WR, “Calvin has just exceptional speed and quickness. His quick-twitch body movements are exceptional. I think Calvin will do nothing but get better the more he works with Matt [Ryan], the more he gains Matt's trust. I think there's some little things that Cal can work on that will really help him elevate." In his first two seasons in Atlanta, Ridley has totaled 127 catches for 1,687 yards and 17 TDs. He runs a 4.43 40-yard dash and has the ability to get in and out of his cuts quickly. His unique combination of elite skills makes him a candidate to enjoy a breakout year in 2020. While an increase in production for Ridley could mean fewer targets for teammate Julio Jones, both receivers could potentially turn in top-10 numbers this upcoming season in the Falcons offense.
