The Jacksonville Jaguars plan to re-sign impending free-agent wide receiver Calvin Ridley this offseason. However, per terms of their 2022 trade with the Atlanta Falcons to acquire Ridley, their third-round pick due to Atlanta turns into a second-rounder if the Jaguars extend Ridley's contract. It means that the Jaguars need to wait until after the new league year begins in March to avoid giving up a second-rounder, because at that point any deal would be a free-agent signing and not an extension. It will also give Ridley time to talk to other teams during the negotiating window, unless he and Jacksonville work out a loose agreement and wait. The 29-year-old had 1,016 receiving yards on 76 receptions and eight touchdowns as the team's No. 1 wideout in 2023 and would most likely be most valuable in fantasy if he stayed with the Jaguars.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown caught eight of his 14 targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in the 31-23 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Divisional Round. The third-year pro could have had a much bigger day if he and Jared Goff could connect on a few more of his targets, but either way, he came through with a touchdown with just under seven minutes in the fourth quarter to help seal the victory. Next week, he should be in for another high-volume day in a neutral matchup against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game.
