Huddle Up: Ridley looks to have hit the vaunted rookie wall after a quick start. He has been held to 37 or fewer yards in four of his previous five outings and his yardage total was his lowest since being blanked in Week 1 at Philadelphia.
Posted: 12/7/2018 12:52pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley has been targeted at least five times in three of the last four games but has also been held to under 40 yards in three of those games. He has played well at times this season and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

Huddle Up: More likely than not, Ridley will be fine to suit up for Sunday's showdown at Lambeau, though he's coming off one of the weakest outings of his rookie campaign. Fortunately, he'll have an easier matchup on tap against the Packers but because of the cold weather expected, he's not exactly a safe WR3 to deploy this week.
Posted: 12/5/2018 1:23pm ET
Huddle Up: The weather will be cold at Lambeau Field, but the Green Bay Packers have been one of the worst fantasy pass defenses this year. As long as Ridley doesn't regress in practice he's a WR3 or flex option this week.
Posted: 12/2/2018 5:38pm ET
Huddle Up: The rookie continued his up-and-down year, but his knack for finding the end zone makes him worth a look as a flex play.
Posted: 11/30/2018 1:13pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley will be ready, and he'll be facing the league's No. 2 ranked pass defense. Baltimore allows just 203.3 yards per game through the air, although they have given up 15 touchdowns and 31 pass plays or 20 or more yards. Ridley should be treated more as a low-end WR3 or flex option in most fantasy leagues for this one.

Huddle Up: Ridley is coming off one of his better games of the season and should be able to play this week. He will be facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense this week but could be a No. 3 receiver or flex option for owners.
Posted: 11/28/2018 2:03pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley appeared to be hitting the vaunted rookie wall in mid-November, but he exploded back onto the scene with a career-high eight grabs for 93 yards and a score on Thanksgiving down in New Orleans. He remains a solid WR3 or flex fantasy play heading into Week 13.
Posted: 11/22/2018 8:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley is likely to remain inconsistent as the No. 3 receiver for the Falcons, but with eight touchdowns already under his belt, the rookie has enough upside to use as a flex option on a weekly basis.
Posted: 11/21/2018 2:41pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley and the Falcons offense could put up some big numbers against a New Orleans pass defense which has been susceptible big plays in the pass game, although they have been much better in recent weeks.
Posted: 11/20/2018 4:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley has only totaled 69 yards combined over his last two games with no touchdowns to boot. A matchup against the New Orleans Saints is what he needs to get back on track as long as he is healthy. Start him as a WR3.
Posted: 11/19/2018 3:03pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley has posted disappointing numbers over the last several weeks and appears to be the third option in the passing game at this point. Owners can consider benching Ridley this week if they have better options available.
Posted: 11/18/2018 2:22pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley has been held to under 50 yards in five of the last six games and has only one touchdown during that span. Ridley was on a hot streak earlier in the season but can be benched next week if owners have better options available.
Posted: 11/16/2018 12:15pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley has cooled off since the beginning of the season and has been held to under 50 yards in four of the last five games. He has been targeted 20 times in the last three games and can still be a flex option in some leagues.
Posted: 11/11/2018 1:34pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley has been targeted at least five times in all but two games this season but has cooled off a bit since his terrific start to the season. He can still be considered a flex option in fantasy leagues but could be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues.
Posted: 11/4/2018 5:25pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley returned to the end zone after a three-game drought, bringing his total to seven scores on the season. He has some upside, but Ridley is a touchdown-dependent flex play.
Posted: 11/4/2018 12:34pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley probably is being evaluated for a concussion and could miss time depending on the severity of his head injury. Owners should know more about Ridley's status in the next day or two.
Posted: 10/22/2018 8:57pm ET
Huddle Up: The good news is that Ridley was able to play after being limited due to an ankle during the week. The bad news is that he posted rather marginal numbers for the third consecutive week. He'll get a bye to rest that bum wheel in Week 8.
Posted: 10/20/2018 12:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley has slowed down over the past two games, posting seven grabs for 85 yards on eight targets, but he does have 22 receptions, 349 yards and six touchdowns in six games overall. He has emerged as a solid WR3 in most fantasy formats.
Posted: 10/19/2018 2:04pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley appears to have a chance to play in the Week 7 game, but owners will know more about his status in the next day or two. He is a risky option because the Falcons play on Monday Night Football but could be a No. 3 receiver or flex option if he plays.
Posted: 10/18/2018 2:35pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Ridley's practice participation during the week to see if he has a chance to play in Week 7. He will be a risky fantasy option because the Falcons play on Monday Night Football, so owners may consider other options for their lineups this week.
Posted: 10/15/2018 5:07pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Ridley's practice participation to see if he has a chance to play in Week 7. He could be a No. 3 receiver in most leagues if he is able to play.
Posted: 10/15/2018 11:03am ET
Huddle Up: Despite what appears to be a minor injury and the distinct possibility he could be ready to play in Week 7, there is already speculation the Falcons will sit him and give him the Week 8 bye in order to fully heal. Stay tuned, but Julio Jones would seem to be the most likely to benefit in terms of seeing more targets - especially in the red zone - if the rookie is inactive.
Posted: 10/14/2018 11:48am ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to look for an update on Ridley after the game or in the next day or two. He has been a solid fantasy option so far this season but could be sidelined because of the injury.
Posted: 10/14/2018 10:39am ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye out on the situation to see if Ridley will be able to return to the game. He has played well early in the season but could miss time depending on the severity of the injury.
Posted: 10/7/2018 1:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley saw his three-game touchdown streak snapped against the Steelers and was held to his lowest yardage total since Week 1. He should have a solid matchup next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and can be a No. 3 receiver.
Posted: 9/30/2018 3:09pm ET
Huddle Up: The rookie Ridley has five touchdowns over his past two games, as the Falcons continue to have an embarrassment of riches in the receiving game. Ridley, Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu could all be No. 1 receivers on a lot of NFL teams. Ridley will look to keep up his scoring ways in Week 5 on the road against the Steelers.
Posted: 9/23/2018 4:35pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley's performance certainly made owners of Julio Jones sad, but those who had stock in Ridley were certainly ecstatic. He'll try to build upon the big game in Week 4 against the Bengals. Target Ridley as a WR3 or flex option with plenty of obvious upside going forward.
Posted: 9/16/2018 2:56pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley has fit in very nicely since arriving in Atlanta, and he pushed aside Mohamed Sanu in this one to seize the No. 2 job alongside Julio Jones. Target Ridley as a WR4 in most fantasy leagues in the short term. In the long term, Ridley is an outstanding keeper league option. The Falcons host the Saints in Week 3.
Posted: 9/14/2018 11:18am ET
Huddle Up: A slow start should have been expected for Ridley, as Julio Jones is the centerpiece of the offense and Mohamed Sanu is a trusted and steady veteran receiver. The rookie will undoubtedly endear himself to Matt Ryan as the season progresses given how advanced he already is as a route-runner. He should be stashed in deeper leagues and remain on watch lists in leagues with shallow rosters.
Posted: 9/6/2018 10:30pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley was considered by many to be the most NFL-ready receiver in this year's draft, but Thursday night served as a reminder just how hard it is for rookie wideouts to make an impact. While optimists can stash Ridley on their bench, his real value is in keeper leagues.
Posted: 8/17/2018 7:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley should open the year as Atlanta's No. 3 receiver, and his potential makes him worth a look as a WR4 in redraft leagues. In rookie drafts, he should be off the board in the first round.
Posted: 7/28/2018 9:23am ET
Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if Ridley will miss any time. He should serve as the No. 3 receiver to start the season and could join the starting lineup at some point in 2018. He can be a possible No. 4 receiver in most leagues but will be more valuable in keeper leagues.
Posted: 7/12/2018 8:45pm ET
Huddle Up: With Julio Jones drawing plenty of attention, Ridley should have a chance to break loose for some big plays. He should be selected in first round of rookie drafts, and he's worth the gamble as a WR4 in redraft formats.
Posted: 6/14/2018 8:13pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley adds another potent weapon to Atlanta's offense, and he should see plenty of friendly matchups while playing alongside Julio Jones. He is a WR4 with upside in redraft leagues and a first-round pick in rookie drafts.
Posted: 5/13/2018 11:20am ET
Huddle Up: Ridley is the Falcons' only unsigned draft pick, but he figures to have a fairly sizeable role in his first pro season. At the very least, Atlanta needs somebody to replace Taylor Gabriel. The slot may be a perfect place for Ridley to start out given his route-running precision and lack of size. Regardless, he should be able to steal snaps from Mohamed Sanu as the season progresses and has a shot to start over him at some point. The rookie is worth considering as a high-upside WR4 in most leagues.
Posted: 4/29/2018 6:58am ET
Huddle Up: The Falcons believe Ridley possesses the skill and explosiveness to be an effective return man despite his lack of experience in that role. He is likely to be the club's No. 3 receiver in 2018 behind Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu, making him worthy of a late- round flier in most fantasy formats, with added value in keeper and dynasty leagues.
Posted: 4/26/2018 11:17pm ET
Huddle Up: With Taylor Gabriel gone there's room for Ridley to contribute right away, though outside of Julio Jones the Falcons don't have a great history of productive rookie receivers. Speaking of Jones, there have been rumblings that he's unhappy with his contract, and while a holdout seems unlikely, it's worth remembering that Jones has dealt with his fair share of nagging injuries in recent years. That should give Ridley some late-round potential.
Posted: 4/26/2018 8:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley has a chance to be the No. 3 receiver for the Falcons behind Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu. He probably will be considered a late-round pick in standard drafts but will have more value in keeper leagues since he could move up the depth chart as a rookie.
Posted: 3/3/2018 10:28am ET
Huddle Up: The top wide receiver prospect on most boards looked the part in drills and during his workouts. He's a likely first-round selection and, in the right situation, could offer matchup utility in fantasy this year.
Posted: 1/28/2018 8:28pm ET
Huddle Up: Ridley is considered by many to be the top receiving prospect in the 2018 NFL Draft, and he could have an immediate fantasy impact if he lands with a receiver-needy team. Expect him to be a first- round pick in rookie drafts.
Posted: 1/18/2018 9:22am ET
Huddle Up: Ridley to Chicago is about as logical of a fit as any player to any team this year. The Bears are hurting badly at the wide receiver position and need a talented playmaker that young quarterback Mitchell Trubisky can look to. Additionally, Chicago picks early enough (No. 8) to take Ridley ahead of other prospective teams. If this pick does come to fruition, Ridley would gain immediate fantasy relevance as Chicago's most talented pass-catcher.
