Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley ended up with six receptions for a team-high 50 yards and a touchdown on nine targets in Week 12 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Ridley was the top fantasy option for the Falcons with Julio Jones and RB Todd Gurley inactive due to injuries. He produced early before the game got out of control and they started running more. Ridley remains a solid fantasy must-start heading into Week 13 against the visiting New Orleans Saints.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (foot) was limited in practice for a third straight day Friday, Nov. 20, but he was removed from the injury report and is expected to play in Week 11 versus the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Things appeared to be trending this way all week, but it is still good to get clarification like this before starting the weekend. Ridley will end up missing only one game due to his injury thanks to the Falcons' well-timed Week 10 bye. Fantasy owners should confidently put Ridley back into their lineups and expect high-end WR2 production at worst.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (foot) was limited in practice for a second straight day Thursday, Nov. 19, according to Will McFadden of the team's website.
Huddle Up: As McFadden points out, any participation for Ridley should be viewed as a good sign. Even if he only gets in a limited session Friday, it's likely he'll suit up against the New Orleans Saints. If that happens, fantasy owners should not hesitate to put him back in their lineups.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (foot) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (foot) was seen working with the training staff on the side Monday, Nov. 16. Interim head coach Raheem Morris told reporters after practice that he expects to know more about Ridley's availability on Wednesday, Nov. 18, when the plan is to have the receiver get some work in individual drills.
Huddle Up: Over the first seven weeks of the season and prior to his Week 8 injury, Ridley was fourth among receivers in per-game scoring in PPR formats. Needless to say, his return can't come fast enough for fantasy owners or the Falcons. A Week 11 matchup against the New Orleans Saints isn't the attractive matchup it appeared to be a few weeks ago, but Ridley should still be considered a viable WR1 if he is cleared in time.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (foot) has been declared inactive for the Week 9 game.
Huddle Up: Russell Gage Jr. should receive a bigger role in the passing game with Calvin Ridley sidelined. He has played well at times this season and can be at least a flex option in most fantasy leagues.
