Jaguars Plan To Bring Back Calvin Ridley

Monday, February 19, 8:17 PM

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.

Jaylen Waddle Fails To Get Much Going In Wild-Card Loss

Monday, January 15, 12:10 PM

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle finished off the 2023 season by missing the last two regular-season games and then putting up a dud in the team's wild-card loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday night. Waddle ended the game with two receptions for 31 yards on five targets and nine yards on one carry. The 25-year-old gathered three 100-yard games and found the end zone four times this year. He was a solid WR2 for his team and finished the year in WR3 territory after taking a sizeable step back from his 2022 season. He missed a few more games this year compared to the season prior, however, he still saw around the same amount of targets and turned it into fewer receptions, yards, touchdowns, and worse yards per target. He should remain a mid-round fantasy draft pick because he does offer a higher upside than most secondary receivers.
