Managers are likely souring on Ridley, who has registered 174 yards and one touchdown on an 11.2 percent target share over the last six games. Consider his upcoming situation before doing anything drastic. He emerged on everyone's radar when scorching the Saints for 155 yards and three touchdowns in Week 3. The rookie gets a rematch against the most favorable opponent for wide receivers. While the Saints have since added Eli Apple, it's still an exploitable position. The Falcons are double-digit underdogs in a projected shootout, so his targets could rise in a pass-heavy game script. While he's no longer a trustworthy weekly starter, the matchup puts him back on the map as a high-upside WR2/3.
