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.The kneejerk reaction to the Cowboys drafting Lamb was that Gallup would take a big hit. We all got past that and said it was realistic to see Lamb in the Randall Cobb role, with maybe a slight portion of the tight end targets that had vacated. Unfortunately, the initial reaction may have been correct. Gallup has 10 targets through two games while Lamb has 15 of them. There was just one stretch of two games where Gallup had 10 targets last year, so we're officially worried. He's typically at LWR, which means he'll see the most of Quinton Dunbar, the Seahawks big acquisition at cornerback. The Seahawks as a whole have struggled to stop wide receivers, but Dunbar has been at least competent. If the last two years are a sign of anything, he's the most talented cornerback on the team. Again, this team has allowed 67.5 PPR points per game to wide receivers, so there's production to be had, but Gallup is at the stage where he almost needs to prove it before he can be trusted as a top-30 wide receiver. He's just a borderline WR3/4 option despite the plus matchup, though the bright side is that the Seahawks have allowed six top-36 wide receivers through two games.
Kyle Yates

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.Gallup hasn't exactly hit the way that many fantasy managers were hoping for so far this year, but he's still involved in one of the league's most dynamic offenses. Gallup can be viewed as a WR3 moving forward that always has upside to find the end zone or reel in a big catch deep downfield.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
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.This is my last week trusting Gallup as a WR3 based on matchup. Gallup has only 10 targets, 5 receptions, 108 yards, and no touchdowns in two games this year. The Seahawks are 32nd against fantasy wide receivers, so I'll give him the nod in this matchup. That said, Gallup needs to show the Cowboys offense can support 3 elite fantasy receivers this week.
