Calvin Ridley Fantasy Football Outlook (2024)

By Andrew Erickson (FantasyPros), Wed, Mar 13th 2024, 5:42pm EDT

Calvin Ridley secured a pivotal role in the Jaguars' offense, catching 76 passes on 136 targets for 1,016 yards, averaging 13.4 yards per reception. Nearly 1,800 air yards on a 22.5% target share and 36% air yards share. He scored 8 touchdowns.
Across 17 games, he totaled 191.9 fantasy points, averaging 11.3 points per game, making him a solid WR2 in fantasy formats. WR17 overall but WR26 in points per game.
Ridley led the entire NFL in end zone targets (24). He was the WR10 in expected fantasy points per game. But he never fully took advantage of his elite opportunities to churn out a fantasy WR1 season. He signed with the Titans as a free agent, to be their new WR1 alongside DeAndre Hopkins. Hopkins was a fringe fantasy WR1 in ppg with Will Levis at QB albeit in a run-heavy offense.

Ridley's going to continue to have spiked weeks of production in a more pass-heavy centric offense heralded by new head coach Brian Callahan. Assuming that the Titans don't draft a top-tier rookie WR - still very much in play as Hopkins enters the final year of his career - a concentrated target share between Hopkins/Ridley would be ideal for fantasy purposes. It's possible that Tennessee might not value the TE position, given the Bengals' lack of TE production under Callahan the last several years.
