2020 Fantasy Outlook
After being selected in the fourth round of last year's draft, Ridley didn't see the field until Week 13, and in four games, he posted six catches for 69 yards. However, with the Bears lacking playmakers at WR aside from Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller, Riley certainly could emerge as a factor in the passing game, should he impress the coaching staff during camp. Although he showed production in college, he has 40th percentile speed, 22nd percentile agility and 42nd percentile explosiveness, so he'll need to play much better than his measurables to make an impact at the NFL level as well as for fantasy managers. He'll be a player to watch during the preseason, as his role will ultimately determine his early-season fantasy value. Read Past Outlooks

Position coach Mike Furrey expects Ridley to display the most growth among Bears wide receivers this season, Colleen Kane of The Chicago Tribune reports. "I think the biggest growth we're going to see with anybody in our room is going to be Riley Ridley," Furrey said. "The passion he has to become successful in this game, he loves the process. And I believe when you love the process, it's going to be successful."
ANALYSIS
The 2019 fourth-round pick caught three passes for 54 yards Week 17, but he otherwise was limited to three receptions on 77 offensive snaps in four appearances. Ridley could be in the mix for a top-three role this summer, competing with Ted Ginn, Javon Wims and Cordarrelle Patterson to see playing time alongside Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller. Despite Furrey's expectations, it's hard to image the winner of that battle establishing mainstream fantasy relevance.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
A fourth-round pick of the Bears this year, Ridley enters the league with plenty of tread on his tires, having caught 58 of 89 passes for 788 yards and 11 touchdowns in his last two seasons at Georgia. His output was the product of polished route running and a decent catch radius, which should give him freedom to work as both a slot and outside receiver as a pro. However, Ridley is joining an offense with a strong collection of pass-catching options, namely Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller, Taylor Gabriel and Trey Burton. As such, Ridley may not be able to break into the regular rotation for some time.
