Falcons Offensive Coordinator Believes In Calvin Ridley

Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter believes the potential of wide receiver Calvin Ridley has yet to be reached. The Alabama product has played superbly in his first two NFL seasons as the WR2 on this team. The 25-year-old amassed 63 receptions, 866 yards, 13.7 yards per catch, and seven touchdowns in 13 games last season. With more rapport with QB Matt Ryan, the 2018 pick will look to elevate further and potentially reach his first 1,000-yard season in 2020. Ridley will certainly be a reliable receiver for fantasy owners considering his massive growth and stable role on the Falcons. He's worth drafting as the WR2 on fantasy teams.

Calvin Ridley Ready For A Breakout?

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley was picked as the team's breakout star for the 2020 season by writer Adam Rank. The 25-year-old was in the midst of a reliable fantasy season in 2019 before succumbing to an abdominal injury that forced him to miss the last three games of the season. Through two seasons in Atlanta, the former Alabama wideout has compiled 127 receptions for 1,687 yards and 17 touchdowns. With the team retaining all of its coaching personnel, the No. 2 wideout has a good shot at living up to Rank's prediction, despite the arrival of running backTodd Gurley II, a player who will undoubtedly take away some targets from both Ridley and Julio Jones throughout the year.

Calvin Ridley Shined Through Double Coverages

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley had a catch-rate difference of plus-8.7 percent last year and did it while seeing double teams 5.4 percent of the time. Ridley also had a nice cushion on his routes, with an average of 6.6 yards at the time of the snap. Because of his 4.43-second speed, opponents rarely pressed him at the line of scrimmage, and instead preferred to cover him with multiple defensive backs. Atlanta's QBs had a 113.5 passer rating when targeting Ridley in 2019. An injury also limited the 25-year-old last season, so he could easily put up high-end WR2/low-end WR1 numbers over a full season in 2020, even with Julio Jones commanding the lion's share of the looks.
