Prior to getting hurt and having his season cut short, Ridley was on pace for 1,066 yards and eight touchdowns in 2019, which would have had him as the WR14. Now going into his third NFL season, there's a real chance for a breakout, though Julio Jones isn't going away any time soon. If you want to know if there's room for both to be WR1s, look no further than the Bucs last year with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, though it's rare for that to happen. Still, Ridley is an ascending talent and the Falcons didn't add a receiver of significance to replace Mohamed Sanu.

Calvin Ridley: Dirk Koetter says ‘you’re going to see a jump in his game’

According to Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, the best is yet to come for third-year WR Calvin Ridley.

Fantasy Impact

The 2018 first-round pick out of Alabama has drawn a ton of praise from Koetter, who recently said of third-year WR, “Calvin has just exceptional speed and quickness. His quick-twitch body movements are exceptional. I think Calvin will do nothing but get better the more he works with Matt [Ryan], the more he gains Matt's trust. I think there's some little things that Cal can work on that will really help him elevate." In his first two seasons in Atlanta, Ridley has totaled 127 catches for 1,687 yards and 17 TDs. He runs a 4.43 40-yard dash and has the ability to get in and out of his cuts quickly. His unique combination of elite skills makes him a candidate to enjoy a breakout year in 2020. While an increase in production for Ridley could mean fewer targets for teammate Julio Jones, both receivers could potentially turn in top-10 numbers this upcoming season in the Falcons offense.
