Julio Jones is going to play this weekend, but that shouldn't stop you from benching Ridley in a near-ideal matchup against the Bucs. He should be regarded as a WR2 this weekend. 
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Ridley has a chance to conclude his rookie campaign with double-digit touchdowns. The problem is his 231 yards in the nine other games without a score. This is still a week to take the plunge, as Tampa Bay has allowed 12.0 yards per catch and 20 touchdowns to wide receivers. Julio Jones (hip/ribs) could also be limited or sidelined in an inconsequential game, which would give the neophyte a chance to elevate his 15.2 target percentage. Bet on Ridley's lofty ceiling.
