Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (personal) returned to practice Monday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Ridley's mind and body should be right after missing Week 5 due to his personal issue and resting up during the Week 6 bye. He may be in good shape to take advantage of a shorthanded Miami Dolphins defense in Week 7 that played without both of its top cornerbacks this weekend. Consider him a strong WR1 option if Byron Jones and Xavien Howard are unable to make it back in time.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 8, and has been ruled out for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Cordarrelle Patterson and Olamide Zaccheaus likely will be the starting receivers for the Falcons with Ridley and Russell Gage sidelined. Patterson has played very well over the last few games and can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (undisclosed) isn't making the trip to London and will miss the team's Week 5 game Sunday, Oct. 10, due to an undisclosed personal matter, the team announced Thursday.
Huddle Up: Yikes ... a huge Week 5 blow for Ridley's fantasy owners and the Falcons' passing game. Olamide Zaccheaus and Tajae Sharpe will likely serve as Atlanta's top WRs, but expect TE Kyle Pitts and do-it-all RB/WR Cordarrelle Patterson to soak up most of Ridley's 10.5 targets per game.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (undisclosed) is out of practice Thursday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: There's no word on what has the WR2 out of practice. Keep tabs on him the rest of the week.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley posted seven catches for 80 yards on 13 targets in Week 4 against the Washington Football Team.
Huddle Up: Ridley was overshadowed by Cordarrelle Patterson, who had three touchdowns in this one, but Ridley was able to produce at least seven grabs for the third straight. His 80 yards also marked a season best. He remains a legit WR2 in all PPR leagues, while he is more of a lower-end WR2 or flex fantasy play in standard leagues. The Falcons meet the Jets in London in Week 5.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley caught eight passes for 61 yards against the New York Giants in Week 3. He was targeted 11 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Ridley has been targeted at least eight times in the each of the first three games this season and is the clear top option in the passing game for the Falcons. He should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley caught seven of his 10 targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in a 48-25 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Ridley grabbed his first touchdown of the year, but the Atlanta offense has been struggling out of the gate. He is still the No. 1 option for the Falcons, but fantasy owners may need to lower expectations for Ridley a bit.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley caught five passes for 51 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1. He was targeted eight times during the game.
Huddle Up: Ridley is the main option in the passing game with Julio Jones no longer on the team and should continue to lead the team in targets each game. He should still be a weekly starting option in all leagues despite his quiet Week 1 performance.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley told reporters Tuesday, Aug. 3, that his surgically repaired foot is 'totally, definitely fixed.' Ridley added that his foot was not in good shape last season.
Huddle Up: For any fantasy managers that needed some peace of mind, here it is. Ridley can make a strong case for being considered a top-five receiver in fantasy drafts. He is an elite WR1 option worthy of coming off the board in the late second round.

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (foot) returned to practice Thursday, July 29.
Huddle Up: The time is now for Ridley, who takes over as the go-to weapon alongside TE Kyle Pitts in what could be the dynamic duo for the next five years. He'll be a WR1 with some sneaky upside.
