We talked about a year three explosion from Ridley, but to lead all wide receivers by 16.1 half PPR points after two weeks? Sheesh. He's playing the alpha in this offense while Julio Jones plays through a hamstring injury, racking up 22 targets, 16 receptions, 239 yards, and four touchdowns. This week will be the toughest test yet when he lines up across from Kyle Fuller, the Bears top cornerback who's allowed just 6-of-15 passing for 70 scoreless yards in his coverage this year, including an interception. This should be a good battle, and while Fuller is a good cornerback, Ridley's better. Look for them to try and stretch the field with Ridley, as the route Fuller struggled the most with in 2019 was the go route and post route, allowing over 20 yards per target on said routes. Fuller is better when he can be physical with wide receivers, only Ridley's a bit too shifty for that physical play. Continue plugging him in as a WR1 until he gives you a reason not to, especially while Jones is playing at less than 100 percent.We knew that Kupp's usage would change a bit this year with them wanting to run more 12 personnel, but he's still playing almost every snap and still running about 60 percent of his routes from the slot. That's a big positive in this matchup because of the top five performances against the Bills secondary over the last two years, slot-heavy receivers have accounted for four of them. This is highly unusual. Taron Johnson is the one who'll be tasked with trying to slow Kupp down this week. He was in coverage for eight of Jamison Crowder's receptions in Week 1, even though they amounted to just 56 yards. That's been Johnson's thing over the last two years, allowing a high 74 percent catch-rate, but limiting the yards overall by keeping the play in front of him. Kupp should offer a solid floor with the best matchup of the Rams receivers, though I can't say he's anything more than a mid-to-low-end WR2.

I do not think Julio Jones is going to play this week and if that is the case, Ridley should see a ton of targets on Sunday. He is a legit WR1, even against the Bears secondary that is 7th against fantasy receivers.Kupp led the NFL in slot receiving yards last year and the Bills have struggled to stop Jamison Crowder and Isiah Ford in the slot. Kupp is an upside WR2 in a great matchup.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Ridley is currently the WR1 in all of fantasy football and it's not even close. He's been insanely productive the first couple of weeks and there's absolutely no reason to sit him moving forward. Even if Julio sits this game out with his injury, plus a tough matchup against the Bears defense, Ridley's still a must-start option as a low-end WR1.Kupp has struggled to deliver the high-end production that we all became familiar with throughout the first half of 2019, but he's still producing solid WR2 numbers this year. This is a tough matchup for opposing wide receivers, but Kupp should see enough volume to return low-end WR2 production yet again.
