8 Critical Fantasy Football Questions: NFC South - Footballguys

Examining the critical fantasy football questions for each NFL team heading into the 2018 season

Each NFL team is its own fantasy football organism. Will they thrive or die in 2018? This series outlines the critical questions for each team across their skill position depth charts. In this edition: NFC South

Who is the No. 2 wide receiver in Atlanta?

Calvin Ridley was drafted in the first round by the Falcons. The incumbent veteran for the role is Mohamed Sanu.

Verdict: Both are outside the Top 50 in positional ADP due to Julio Jones as a dominant WR1 on the offensive target pecking order. However, Sanu finished in the top-40 of PPR PPG in 2017 on nearly 100 targets. The 'next big thing' chasers annually disregard steady veterans, assuming an early and pronounced step forward for young options. This year's Falcons depth chart is a good example. Ridley, while a big recruit from an elite program, underwhelmed in college and finished with a tepid prospect profile considering he is on the old side, lacking strong physical traits for his lagging size, and did not dominate production-wise (by market share or raw numbers). On the flip side, Sanu has averaged 10-12 PPR PPG over his seasons in Atlanta will be a hindrance, if not stifling, Ridley's upside all 2018. If seeking bye week or injury depth in the WR3/4 zone, target Mohamed Sanu. Any game Julio Jones is out, Sanu will be on the WR2 radar.
