Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 3 PPR Rankings

Calvin Ridley Note

Calvin Ridley started to see the necessary targets again this past week in a tougher matchup and he came through for fantasy managers. Ridley saw a 20.8% target share against the Buccaneers and put together a 7-70-1 stat line off of that opportunity. Looking ahead to week three, Ridley has a tougher matchup in front of him with Adoree' Jackson and/or James Bradberry, both who are making life difficult on opposing WRs this season, but he's going to see enough volume to cancel it out. He can be viewed as a reliable high-end WR2 this week.

Cordarrelle Patterson Note

Cordarrelle Patterson has apparently finally found a place in the NFL that will feature him as a part of the offense. In recent history, "CP" has been used as a gadget player or someone to simply come in from time to time and provide a spark for the offense, but he's being utilized as an integral part of the Falcons system. While it's interesting to see - and it certainly worked for fantasy purposes in week two - we've seen Patterson be heavily targeted in games previously only to essentially disappear not soon afterwards. Patterson is worth picking up off of your waiver wire if you can get him for cheap, but I wouldn't suggest starting him this upcoming week unless you are truly in a pinch at WR/RB. His versatility on fantasy football platforms is certainly appealing, but we need to wait another week before we can confidently say that it's different this time around.
