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.How happy was Allen to see Justin Herbert under center? He was targeted 10 times by the rookie, connecting on seven of them for 96 yards, while the rest of the receivers combined for just six targets. There was an episode of Hard Knocks this preseason where I watched Herbert go over to Allen and said something to the effect of, "I'm just here to get the ball to you, man. Consider me your assistant," or something like to that effect. It's clear he's a fan of Allen's game. The Panthers have Corn Elder covering the slot, a third-year cornerback who's seen just 10 career targets in his coverage. On those targets, he's allowed seven catches for 92 yards and two touchdowns. When the Chargers aren't running the ball all over the Panthers, they should be targeting Allen over the middle of the field. Knowing Allen saw a 30.3 percent target share in Herbert's first start, you should feel confident starting him as a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 with a solid floor.

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.The Panthers are 8th against fantasy wide receivers, Allen is a WR3 this week at home against a Panthers D that has played receivers tough, but has been terrible in almost all other respects.
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.Allen bounced back in a big way last week and put together a solid performance with Herbert behind center. He saw 10 targets and was able to reel in 7 of them for 96 yards. While this is a fantastic matchup on paper for Allen, the Chargers may not need to throw much to win this game. That limits Allen's ceiling, but he's still a fine low-end WR2 option.
