Falcons | Calvin Ridley getting work all over the field

Sun, 13 May 2018 11:20:16 -0700

Atlanta Falcons first-round WR Calvin Ridley lined up in the slot as well as outside during rookie minicamp Saturday, May 12. Ridley is also under consideration to return kickoffs and punts, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Falcons | Calvin Ridley could return kickoffs and punts

Sun, 29 Apr 2018 06:58:13 -0700

The Atlanta Falcons could experiment with using WR Calvin Ridley as a kickoff returner and punt returner at the team's rookie camp, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Ridley returned just two punts for four yards at Alabama and did not return any kickoffs.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Falcons | Calvin Ridley to line up in multiple spots

Thu, 26 Apr 2018 23:17:09 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley will play outside and in the slot, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Falcons | Calvin Ridley selected by Falcons

Thu, 26 Apr 2018 20:00:39 -0700

The Atlanta Falcons selected Alabama WR Calvin Ridley with the 26th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Thursday, April 26.

Fantasy Tip: 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.
