Ridley left the Week 14 game with abdomen injury

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 done for the season (Mon Dec 9, 01:52 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (abdominal) announced on social media he will miss the rest of the season due to an abdominal injury he suffered in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers.

Our View: Ridley finishes his second season with 63 catches for 866 yards and seven touchdowns. He's a big part of the Falcons offense and has a nose for the end zone with 17 touchdowns in two seasons as a pro. Ridley should be considered a WR2 breakout candidate in 2020.

Falcons | Calvin Ridley leads the way for Atlanta WRs (Sun Dec 8, 06:28 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley caught five passes for 76 yards and a touchdown on five targets vs. the Carolina Panthers in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.

Our View: Ridley looked great but also suffered an abdomen injury in this one. It could end his season with only three games left. Russell Gage and Christian Blake would get more snaps and targets if Ridley is out.
