Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Calvin Ridley looked like he was about to see as many targets as Darren Waller would in week one as the game commenced, but that was essentially all she wrote for the talented wideout. With Ryan struggling immensely in this new offense, Ridley only was able to see eight total targets and he reeled in five of them for only 51 yards. This is concerning moving forward, especially if no other receiver is going to step up in this offense and help take some of the pressure off of Ridley. Without Julio, defenses are simply going to be able to key in on stopping Ridley and the whole offense might sputter. Ridley's still worth starting this week, of course, but we cannot view him as a locked-in WR1 up against Tampa Bay. Adjust your expectations for Ridley and view him as a mid-range WR2.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
The big man was quiet early in Week 1 but came on late and finished with four catches for 60 yards and a touchdown. This week, Metcalf will primarily be matched up against (checks notes) Jackrabbit Jenkins, formerly known as Janoris Jenkins. The Cardinals' DeAndre Hopkins primarily lines up on the left side of the formation, same as Metcalf, and Hopkins victimized the Jackrabbit multiple times last week en route to a two-TD game.If the Falcons can't get Ridley untracked, they might as well pack up the equipment trucks and head back to Flowery Branch. Ridley had three catches for 39 yards on Atlanta's opening drive but then had just two catches for 12 yards the rest of the way. In Ridley's two games against the Falcons last year, he drew 26 targets and caught 18 balls for 215 yards and a touchdown.
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Arizona's WRs obliterated the Titans' secondary in Week 1, so Metcalf is in a prime position to erupt in this matchup. His teammate Tyler Locket stole the show in Week 1, but DK should be OK here.Ridley's huge season is off to a slow start, eh? Nothing to fear, fantasy football managers. Tampa Bay's strength is in stopping the run, but Dak Prescott had his way with the Bucs' secondary in Week 1, and Ridley should be able to get back on track as a locked-in WR1.

The Titans allowed 57.1 fantasy points to Cardinals receivers in the opener, Metcalf has a fantastic matchup against a terrible Titans secondary at home.The Buccaneers were 32nd against fantasy wide receivers in the opener, but they also played a very tough Dallas passing offense. Diggs is a WR1 in this game, but I don't think the matchup is quite as good as it looks on paper.
