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.You had to know Evans was going to get peppered with targets against the Panthers when Godwin was announced as out, right? What was somewhat shocking was that Evans lined up in the slot on 47 percent of his routes, something that's really been unheard of. With Godwin back, Evans will move back to a near full-time perimeter role. With A.J. Bouye out of the lineup, the Broncos are starting slot cornerback Bryce Callahan on the perimeter alongside rookie Michael Ojemudia. Through two games, that duo has allowed 18-of-25 passing for 251 yards and two touchdowns in their coverage. Callahan is 5-foot-9 and 188 pounds. Evans moves back and forth, so he'll see a mix of them both, but he can with either matchup. There's zero reason to fade Evans this week when you consider the matchup, even if Brady hasn't looked great through two games. Start Evans as a borderline WR1 once again this week.
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.Evans became more of a focal point for the offense in week two and saw 10 targets. He was able to reel in seven of those for over 100 yards and a score, which is a fantastic fantasy performance. This was without Godwin in the lineup though, so we have to anticipate his production take a slight dip this week. With that being said, Evans is still a fine WR2 start this week that always comes with the upside of making a big play 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.Evans had 7 receptions for 104 yards and a touchdown a Week 2 victory over Carolina. Godwin is going to be back this week, but seeing Godwin is coming off a concussion, I think Evans is the slightly better play this week.
