Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings
Calvin Ridley Note

Ridley's start to the season is almost comical at this point, with 239 yards receiving and four touchdowns. He might be the best receiver to roster in Atlanta, but even if he's not, he's a locked in WR1 going forward.

Todd Gurley II Note

He keeps falling into the end zone, which is what's holding up his fantasy stock, but his inefficiency cannot be ignored. Neither can his health or schedule, which ranks as the third-toughest in the NFL over the remainder of the season, including another game against the Saints and one against the Bucs, two teams you really don't want to start running backs against.

Hayden Hurst Note

Hurst rarely played even half the snaps with Baltimore, but he was sixth in yards per target last year and was PFF's eighth-highest graded tight end. Dirk Koetter's offense likes to target the tight end, as Austin Hooper saw 60 targets through eight games last year and Tony Gonzalez saw 118 targets per season under Koetter. Add in that Hurst is likely to run routes out of the slot this year and Hurst's first year with the Falcons should be a big one.

Ito Smith Note

Smith has been Devonta Freeman's primary backup for two years, but has never seen more than 14 touches in a game. He'll again play second fiddle in Atlanta, this time to Todd Gurley. Even if Gurley were to get injured, however, Smith would likely split time with Brian Hill, making him only a low-end handcuff who isn't worth rostering in fantasy leagues.
