Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (hamstring) participated in practice Sunday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: Ridley should be ready for the start of the regular season as long as he does not suffer any setbacks. Ridley is coming off a solid 2018 season and will continue to have a good role in the passing game. He can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver in fantasy leagues.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (hamstring) remains on the sideline during practice and he is unlikely to play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 8 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Ridley should be fine for the regular season, and there are no indications otherwise. He should be targeted as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 or flex fantasy option in all leagues of 12 or more teams.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (hamstring) left the field holding his right hamstring Thursday, July 25.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (foot) sat out practice Thursday, June 6, with a sore foot.
Huddle Up: The injury doesn't sound like anything for fantasy owners to worry about. Ridley flashed big-play potential as a rookie last year, and he should have no trouble delivering WR3 production as part of Atlanta's loaded passing attack.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley can take his play up a 'big notch' in 2019, according to head coach Dan Quinn. 'In his instance, it's the route-running and the explosiveness he has, that connection with [Matt Ryan] continuing to grow, that's a really big piece,' Quinn said.
Huddle Up: Ridley finished with 821 yards and 10 touchdowns as a rookie, and another year of experience should only solidify his status as a WR3.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley finished his rookie season with numbers similar to what retired WR Marvin Harrison put up as a rookie. Ridley had 64 catches for 821 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2018, and Harrison had 64 catches for 836 yards and eight touchdowns in his rookie year.
Huddle Up: It's more than a little too soon to say Ridley will have the same career trajectory as Harrison, but Ridley did make a great first impression despite being the No. 3 option in Atlanta's passing game. He will enter 2019 as a WR3 with plenty of upside because of his nose for the end zone.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley caught all five of his targets for 32 yards and a touchdown in a 34-32 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Ridley capped an impressive rookie season with his 10th receiving touchdown. His role in the offense should only grow in 2019, so feel free to target him as a WR3.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley registered three receptions for a game-high 90 yards and a touchdown on five targets.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley was targeted seven times, catching five balls for 42 yards and no touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Ridley has been extremely erratic in the second half of 2018 and is a flier in Week 16 with titles on the line. He posted a 4-64-1 line in Week 2 vs. the Panthers in Week 2's meeting, but Carolina has been a dumpster fire in the last five weeks.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley has a combined four catches for 32 yards in his last two games, and he faces an Arizona Cardinals defense in Week 15 that has allowed the fourth-fewest receiving yards and third-fewest receiving touchdowns this year.
Huddle Up: Ridley has found the end zone eight times this year, but he has also been held under 50 yards eight times. The matchup doesn't bode well for a touchdown-dependent player like Ridley.
