Summary

Calvin Ridley joined an already-strong Falcons passing game in 2018 as a first-round rookie but surged to 92 targets and a viable Year 1 impact. Ridley was efficient on deep routes, however, was not heavily used downfield compared to his total routes. With Atlanta's offense returning intact, even adding back Devonta Freeman from injury, an uptick for Ridley would come at the expense of Julio Jones' lofty targets from a year ago (170) or taking over the secondary receiver role from Mohamed Sanu (94 targets), who played heavily in the slot compared to Ridley sparsely working from inside the formation.

Falcons | Calvin Ridley back on field (Sun Aug 11, 06:05 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (hamstring) participated in practice Sunday, Aug. 11.

Our View: As long as Ridley gets through a few practices without incident, he should still be a prime mid-round target in a potential breakout year as the team's #2 receiver.

Falcons | Calvin Ridley remains on sidelines (Wed Aug 7, 11:50 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (hamstring) remains on the sideline during practice and he is unlikely to play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 8 against the Miami Dolphins.

Our View: No need to rush Ridley back to the field, especially because he fought through some hamstring issues last year as a rookie. He is considered day-to-day with this injury.
