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 resting foot (Thu Jun 6, 09:22 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (foot) sat out practice Thursday, June 6, with a sore foot.

Our View: A sore foot could be nothing and it could be something more. We'll just have to wait and see if Ridley can get back out there for minicamp. They do have mandatory minicamp coming up June 11th through 13th.
