Jacksonville Jaguars WR Calvin Ridley (knee) is dealing with a knee injury but should be fine for the Week 4 game, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Ridley played well in the season opener but has been held to 40 yards or less in each of the last two games. He will continue to see a solid amount of targets each game and can still be a starting option in all leagues.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Calvin Ridley caught three passes for 40 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 3. He was targeted seven times during the game.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Calvin Ridley registered just two catches for 32 yards on eight targets in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Ridley exploded for eight grabs, 101 yards and a touchdown in his team debut, clearly looking like the top dog in Duval. This week, it was Christian Kirk going over 100 yards with a score, while Ridley was barely a blip on the radar. Fantasy managers are going to hate this situation if the two top receivers go boom or bust every other week. We'll keep an eye on the situation heading into Week 3 against the Houston Texans. Cautiously use Ridley as a WR2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars WR Calvin Ridley's (toe) toe soreness is related to his cleats. Ridley has now changed the cleats and feels much better.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Calvin Ridley (toe) will be limited at practice for the foreseeable future due to a toe injury.
Huddle Up: Ridley will have quite a bit of rust to kick off after he was limited to five games in 2021 and missing all of last season. He's still worthy of a WR3 selection.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Calvin Ridley "simply moves differently than any other wide receiver on the field," according to SI.com's John Shipley.
Huddle Up: Simply also notes Ridley displays "the pacing and tempo in his routes, the quickness of his feet and his ability to change up his approach to routes even when he isn't getting the ball all stand out." It bodes well for Ridley that he already appears to be separating himself from Christian Kirk, although that was expected to happen at some point anyway. Jacksonville's balanced offensive approach - at least when it comes to the passing game - may keep Ridley from reaching his ceiling, but it should come as no surprise if he finishes as a top 20 fantasy receiver in 2023.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Calvin Ridley was reinstated by the NFL on Monday, March 6, after he was suspended by the league for the entirety of the 2022 season for betting on games.
Huddle Up: The Jaguars took a calculated risk when they acquired Ridley for two draft choices at the trade deadline last season and see their gamble pay off with this news. Although Ridley is set to turn 29 at the end of next season, he is a proven No. 1 receiver in this league who joins a Trevor Lawrence-led offense that already has proven playmakers such as Christian Kirk and Evan Engram. While Ridley may not push for 90 catches in this offense (his career-high total in 2020), he should be a solid WR2 in fantasy at worst.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Calvin Ridley is expected to apply for reinstatement from suspension on Wednesday, Feb. 15, per source. Ridley was suspended for the 2022 season for gambling on NFL games.
Huddle Up: This is the first step for Ridley to get back into the league following his suspension, and the expectation is that he'll be reinstated. If so, Ridley joins an already impressive unit that has a budding star quarterback in Trevor Lawrence. Prior to his issues, Ridley was on an elite trajectory and it's logical to think he can get back on that path in the right situation, which Jacksonville appears to be. That said, we'll temper expectations for now and consider Ridley a potential flex option with WR1 upside.
