Calvin Ridley Records 32 yards in Week 2 Loss to Chiefs

Sunday, September 17, 8:33 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Calvin Ridley came back to earth vs. Kansas City in Week 2, logging only two receptions for 32 yards. After exploding for 101 yards and a touchdown in his first game back in two years, Ridley was shooting up end-of-season rankings but those expectations may need to be tempered after this performance. The good news is that Ridley still drew eight targets, so quarterback Trevor Lawrence clearly wanted to get the ball to his star pass-catcher, but a 25% catch rate is atrocious. The entire Jags offense was very out of sync throughout the day, so fantasy managers shouldn't be worried about the long-term prospects of Ridley this season. He will be ranked as a top-15 receiver next week against the Texans.

Jakobi Meyers Set To Practice Wednesday

Wednesday, September 20, 2:21 PM

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Jakobi Meyers (concussion) returned to practice on Wednesday after missing all of practice and the Week 2 game against the Buffalo Bills last week. Meyers was in the concussion protocol all of last week, but participation in the middle of this week is a good sign. The former Patriot caught nine passes for 81 yards and two touchdowns in his Raiders debut in Week 1, so he might have more fantasy value than projected heading into the 2023 campaign. Assuming he plays in Week 3, he makes for an intriguing flex play against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football.
