2018 Fantasy Outlook
Taken with the 26th overall pick, Ridley finds himself in a nearly ideal landing spot. The Falcons have a high-end QB in his prime and a playmaking void opposite an aging Julio Jones at receiver. Mohamed Sanu is a decent possession option, but he's slow and had only one 40-yard catch over the last two years. Enter Ridley, a polished route runner and accomplished college receiver who runs a 4.43 40 and has enough quickness to line up in the slot. At 6-1, 190, Ridley isn't especially stout, and he's already 23, so his ceiling might not be as high as some of the younger players in his class. But he should see targets out of the gate and has a good chance to be the team's No. 2 option before long. Read Past Outlooks

Reaches 10 touchdowns as rookie
WRAtlanta Falcons
December 30, 2018
Ridley caught all five of his targets, collecting 32 receiving yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 34-32 win against the Buccaneers.
ANALYSIS
Ridley's rookie campaign was accompanied by lofty expectations. The No. 26 overall pick delivered by coming within 180 receiving yards of a 1,000-yard season and providing 10 receiving touchdowns, three more than the second-best rookie wideout was able to manage in that category. Ridley carries strong potential to continue providing flex production in 2019, but with top targets Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Austin Hooper all projected to return, his upside seems to be capped as a low-tier WR2 option.
