Falcons WR Calvin Ridley Explodes, Top Waiver Wire Add of Week 4

Falcons rookie WR Calvin Ridley put on a show in a Sunday shootout loss against the Saints, hauling in 7-of-8 targets for 146 yards and 3 TDs. Afforded softer coverage alongside Julio Jones, Ridley absolutely feasted. Though this 37 FP masterpiece will likely be his best performance of 2018, Ridley is in line for quality weekly outputs in this glorious set up. Owned in under 50% of leagues, Ridley should be the top Waiver Wire priority in Week 2, well-worth massive FAAB shares and a No.1 Priority.

As if a Saturday afternoon at Alabama, Ridley was seemingly wide-open all afternoon, and dominated at every layer of the field. Though the Saints’ horrifically-regressing secondary helped, Ridley seems unlikely to e a one-week wonder thanks to a fantasy goldmine set-up:

1) Weaker, mostly single coverage next to Julio

2) Brewing chemistry and trust with Matt Ryan, in all downs and distances (and especially in the Red Zone)

3) A decimated defense that’ll often create shoot-out scenarios

After a concerning 0-catch debut, Ridley was promised to be more involved by HC Dan Quinn, and he’s delivered. Ridley’s seen 13 targets over the past two weeks, and scored the most FPs of any WR in this span. Ridley’s already topped Julio’s TD total from 2018, and is now tied with Michael Thomas and Davante Adams for the NFL lead in Red Zone scores (3), despite seeing less than half of their looks.

Simply put: Ridley has the individual talent and surrounding situation to match MT’s insane rookie year (92-1137-9). Though Tyler Boyd isn’t a bad fallback option , Ridley is the clear-cut top Waiver Wire add of Week 4, and is truly capable of changing seasons. Break the FAAB bank for the Top WR Penny Stock of 2018.
