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

Ridley (thigh) was a limited participant at Monday's walk-through, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Ridley has made a few appearances on Falcons injury reports this season, but he has yet to be a gameday inactive. Since his 146-yard, three-touchdown outburst Week 3, he's been a complementary option to Julio Jones in the passing attack, surpassing 50 yards receiving just two times in seven games. Overall, though, Ridley has posted an impressive 10.0 yards per target and seven TDs among his 39 receptions.
