It's another good matchup for Cooper, who continues to make Raiders fans wonder if he's the same player that was in Oakland. If you have Cooper, you're already firing him up as a WR1 every week anyways, but the matchup raises his ceiling even more.Hooper and Freeman are out hurt and Mohamed Sanu was traded away a few weeks ago. This means there are a ton of targets to go around. Julio will draw tougher coverage and safety help, which could lead to some broken plays downfield for Ridley. He has the opportunity to have a big week, but a safe valuation is still WR3.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 Big chance for Calvin Ridley to get right this week: • Panthers CBs Bradberry, Cockrell, Jackson banged up • CAR allowed 418 (!!) yards to TEN & GB WRs in Week 9-10 • Hooper and Freeman's absence opens up 30% of Falcons targets
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The MRI he had on his knee apparently meant nothing to him, as he posted a ridiculous 11 catches for 147 yards and a touchdown against the Vikings last week. He saw a season-high 14 targets, which is promising, as he'd been lacking in the target department through eight games. The Lions are going to have Darius Slay shadow him in coverage, one of the better shadow cornerbacks in the game who's allowed just a 57.1 percent catch-rate in his coverage this year with just one touchdown on 28 targets. The Cowboys move Cooper around quite a bit, so it'll be impossible for Slay to stay on him 100 percent of the time. It's the reason we saw Allen Robinson able to tally six catches for 86 yards against them last week. Some will look back and say that Stefon Diggs hit them up for 7/142/0 but Slay left that game after playing just 18 snaps, opening the door for him to produce. Cooper will remain in lineups as a low-end WR1/high-end WR2 because he's still a top route-runner in the game, but it's not a week to play him in cash lineups.The lack of competence from the Saints offense really destroyed any potential with the Falcons offense, and no one felt that more than Ridley. With Mohamed Sanu gone, and Devonta Freeman and Austin Hooper out, we should have a solid floor against the Panthers. With James Bradberry being Julio Jones' tag-along for the day, Ridley will see a lot of Donte Jackson. In a similar matchup last year, Ridley tallied 4/64/1 in the first matchup and 3/90/1 in the second one. Jackson has plenty of speed to burn but he lacks the agility to cover Ridley on a consistent basis. He's been solid in coverage this year, but he's had more lapses than Bradberry. The Panthers have allowed 12 wide receivers to post top-36 performances against them, including seven top-24 games. Ridley should be considered a WR3 in fantasy leagues who you're going to have to deal with some ups and downs as the No. 2 option, and with so many options gone, this should be a week where he'll perform how you'd like him to, especially when you see the 51-point total that's implied.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Lions are just 23rd against fantasy wide receivers, Cooper is a great WR1 option on the road this week.
