Calvin Ridley looked like he was about to see as many targets as Darren Waller would in week one as the game commenced, but that was essentially all she wrote for the talented wideout. With Ryan struggling immensely in this new offense, Ridley only was able to see eight total targets and he reeled in five of them for only 51 yards. This is concerning moving forward, especially if no other receiver is going to step up in this offense and help take some of the pressure off of Ridley. Without Julio, defenses are simply going to be able to key in on stopping Ridley and the whole offense might sputter. Ridley's still worth starting this week, of course, but we cannot view him as a locked-in WR1 up against Tampa Bay. Adjust your expectations for Ridley and view him as a mid-range WR2.
