The Atlanta Falcons' latest inury report lists wide receiver Calvin Ridley as questionable to play in Week 4 as he continues to battle an ankle injury. The Falcons take on the 3-0 Green Bay Packers on Monday Night football this week.

Ridley was able to be a limited participant in practice on Friday and Saturday after sitting out on Thursday. He is trending in the right direction when it comes to being active for the Falcons this week.

Calvin Ridley Fantasy Outlook

Missing Ridley in this pivotal Week 4 matchup would be a huge blow for fantasy managers and the Falcons' offense as a whole. Ridley has surpassed 100 yards in each of the three games so far this season and has solidifed himself as one of Matt Ryan's go-to options.

Ridley has been the No. 1 fantasy wide receiver with 349 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns. He has shown no signs on slowing down on this high-scoring Falcons' offense. If he is able to suit up, fantasy managers should have no concern plugging him into the lineup just like every other week.

On the off chance that Ridley has to sit out and miss this game, there are a few fantasy implications. His absence would make Russell Gage a must-start this week and boost the value of Julio Jones (if he is able to play).

Ridley checks in as the No. 8 wide receiver in our Week 4 fantasy football rankings. Just make sure to keep an eye on his injury status up until Monday night and have a backup option available if he is declared out.
