Fantasy Analysis
Week 6 Projections
Despite the absence of Julio Jones (hamstring) and Matt Ryan's recent struggles throwing the ball, Ridley rebound nicely from his Week 5 donut outing against the Green Bay Packers, gashing the Carolina Panthers with his fourth 100-yard game of the season. The must-start Ridley heads into Week 6 ranked fifth among all NFL wideouts in targets (50), ninth (tie) in catches (29), fifth in receiving yards (285) and third (tie) in touchdown grabs (four). Ryan's erratic play of late is a bit nerve racking, but Ridley should take care of business versus a Minnesota Vikings defense that has surrendered the fourth-most receiving yards, the most touchdown receptions and the sixth-most fantasy points to the wideout position.
Rushing: 2 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 6 Receptions, 86 Yards, 1 TD.

Season Projections
Ridley has been a solid play-maker in the Falcons offense. He missed a few games last year so his numbers from his rookie year were fairly similar. If he can suit up for a full season, the sky is the limit in the Atlanta offense. Since he scores more than Julio, he may provide more value than him in fantasy drafts based on ADP. The fast track is also a huge plus for Ridley's skill-set. There is much to like about Calvin Ridley in his third year.

Rushing: 22 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 61 Receptions, 877 Yards, 8 TD.
