For those trying to stock up on RBs in the first few rounds, we’ll need to find some gems at WR a little later. We might need to look for a little more upside so that we can have the potential of getting a guy who has a high ceiling than where he’s being drafted. Ridley has definitely presented that upside last year with a lot of inconsistency, which is something we’ll take every time considering rookie WRs usually don’t make much of an impact. 821 yards and 10 TDs is great, but a more consistent target share can really help Ridley have a legit breakout season. He only had more than 6 targets four times last year, but he’s averaged 88 yards and 1.25 TDs in those games.

When Dirk Koetter was the OC for Atlanta, there were several seasons where multiple receivers had 80+ catch seasons. His offenses have been known to abandon the run at times, so that just means more volume for the receivers. Both Julio and Ridley can be sustained as a WR1 and WR2 in 2019, respectively, with a sprinkle of Mohamed Sanu – who by the way is a steal in the 14th-15th round, and with Austin Hooper potentially taking a bigger step forward in Koetter’s offense.

When rookie WRs finish as a WR2 or above, there’s a good chance of them continuing that trend. What do you think the 2019 season for Calvin Ridley will look like? Over/under 1250 yards? Is there another option at their ADP who intrigues you more on this offense? Let me know 👇👇
