3.) Calvin Ridley vs. Cleveland Browns

Up until last week, Calvin Ridley put up 31 points and 21 points in the two previous games against the Tennessee Titans and Houston Texans. Even though Ridley managed to get 8 targets, he brought in just 4 receptions for 26 yards and the injury to Trevor Lawrence definitely affected his impact.

Not only will Ridley have to potentially play without Lawrence’s presence this week, but he gets to face a defense in Cleveland that can play lockdown with their pass rush. With this game being in Cleveland and a possibility of backup quarterback C.J. Beathard throwing the ball, Ridley has more limitations than a high ceiling.

Just when Ridley was going to last week on a hot streak, we could see more limitations on Ridley in this offense and there is an argument to be made that Ridley could very well not see a ton of production this week and moving forward.
