Calvin Ridley Note

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.

DeAndre Hopkins Note

DeAndre Hopkins showcased his elite receiving skills with 75 catches on 137 targets (28% target share), amassing 1,057 receiving yards, averaging 14.1 yards per reception. He proved to be a deep threat with a long reception of 61 yards and 27 catches of 20+ yards. 1,934 total air yards (42%) - the most of any WR during the regular season. Over 17 games, Hopkins scored a total of 186.1 fantasy points, averaging 10.9 points per game (29th) marking him as a dependable WR2 in fantasy lineups. WR22 overall. Specifically, with Will Levis under center, Hopkins posted a 27% target share, 46% air yards share and 13.4 fantasy points per game (WR13). And that came with a sub-50% catch rate. But with Calvin Ridley added to the fold as legitimate target competition, Hopkins' fantasy value takes a hit.
