Trevor Lawrence has been on a tear over the last three weeks, averaging higher than 24 points per game. And he didn't even finish this Monday's game when he went down with an ankle injury and 25 points. Ridley had over 21.9 points the last two weeks which included a 31.10 week. He averages over 6 targets a game and the Bengals give up the sixth-most yards to receivers.
Lawrence did feed Ridley last week, 8 targets, but he only caught four of those passes for a paltry 29 yards. Ridley flopped this week with a good matchup and a high-scoring affair.
Lawrence is for sure out next week, which probably means more C.J. Beathard. Beathard looked alright in limited play, but he is no Trevor Lawrence. Combine that with the fact that the Jaguars get Cleveland next week who give up the least yards in the NFL to the passing game and the fourth-fewest touchdowns. They also have the 12th most sacks and give up the second-least fantasy points per game to the WR position.
I think the Browns are going after Beathard which makes Ridley a Bench for next week.
