Depth Chart
Calvin Ridley has less of the prototypical size for a No.1 wide receiver than Jones (he is 6'1" and 190 pounds), but he has produced very nicely in a No.2 role in his first two seasons. With defenses having to account for Jones, Ridley has taken advantage, producing 127 receptions and 17 touchdowns. He also only played in 13 games last season, and his full 16-game pace was 77 receptions for 1,066 yards and 8 touchdowns. That would have equated to 231 fantasy points, which would have meant he scored the 17th-most points at the position.

His upside certainly seems to be a top-15 wide receiver, but there are reasons for hesitation. First, he is being drafted at WR14 currently, according to the most recent ADP (average draft position) data. That means he is being drafted around his ceiling already. With a stud receiver on the other side, his upside is always going to be capped, assuming Jones continues to command a monster target share. Further, his touchdown rate has been very high in his first two seasons, but that can come back down quickly, and seemingly for no reason. Touchdowns are simply not a "sticky stat" one can depend on when projecting a player's statistics. And if his touchdown rate came down, he would likely finish in the WR25 range, making him a reach at his current ADP.

He is an excellent route-runner and finds ways to get open, and he has built up a solid rapport with his quarterback in a pass-happy offense. So please don't hear me saying he is a poor fantasy option. On the contrary, he is an excellent option for the right price. But expecting that he is going to explode this season and be a top-12 fantasy wide receiver is likely wishful thinking.
