Calvin Ridley 2020 Outlook


Recommended Posts

Will cool off obviously, but what a start. 

 

I had him at 85/1150/10 coming into the year, which would be a fringe WR1. TDs are not a science, but if the Atlanta defense keeps this up, we could see 95/1300/12 ... which should put him top 3-5. WR's I like over him are MT (when healthy), Adams, healthy Godwin, and Hill. 

At any rate, if you got him past round 3-4, you should be way in the black. Congrats and let's hope the Falcons D keep their end of the bargain.

Best case scenario: Ridley’s foot feels 100% immediately and he doesn’t even miss a practice. Worst case scenario: Ridley’s experiences complications that ultimately lead to his death. Most

Julio being one of the best WRs of all time + him still being in the back-end of his prime isn't a detractor at all as you're framing it. They consistently bracket Julio with a safety over the top + o

It looks like some were right here a few weeks ago. I really thought this was another year of the HOO, but it looks like Ridley might just break out and put up the WR1 fantasy numbers. Julio is still WR1 on his team because he draws the toughest coverage. But from a fantasy perspective Ridley is killing it right now. We will see if it continues, but it is very promising through two games.

They are for Ridley.  He's quick and sharp with his routes in tight spaces like possibly no other receiver in the league right now.  Below is a video of Ridley embarrassing a bunch of guys in training (no idea how good they are, looks like the one he makes almost fall down plays at UGA).  Not to mention how terrible Hardman looks in comparison to Ridley.

 

Then watch his second TD yesterday where he completely turns the DB around and gets wide open in about 2 seconds.  He makes the pros look lost too.

I love seeing the overanalyzing sometimes....

1.  He was a first round pick who was a very talented player coming out of Alabama.  He was drafted by a team who has an elite QB distributing the football.

2.  Targets are available

3.  Dude had a very good Freshman & Sophomore season - especially seeing there were other mouths to feed in that offense in previous years.  

4.  Simply put - you're seeing a receiver completely blossom in his third season.

Ride the wave folks!

I saw this video and yes, Hardman honestly looks like a child next to men. I also can't believe the Chiefs took Hardman OVER DK Metcalf, but I guess the league and football gods could not put together a superteam of superteams for Mahomes to dominate with easily, but I digress. 

 

With that said, I still think TDs are so hard to predict. We can agree Rid has a knack for the ball, but variance between years is so random, and it's just tough to get down. I think at 12 TDs (just my guess), would be on the high end of things, but I sure hope he gets there.

Sooo it sounds like you are saying he's not going to get 2 TDs every game... away with you! 😂

I think he actually has the chance to, he gets all the looks down field in the red zone along with gage.

That injury report is massive. I’m pretty sure these guys were held out for precautionary reasons. The list of DNPs include 7 starters.

 

seeing as how they play on Monday, Thursday is the new Wednesday ....
