The Atlanta Falcons could have one of the top offenses in the league in 2021. Barring any major shakeups, Matt Ryan will have the talented duo of Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley at wide receiver once again as Atlanta looks to bounce back. With Jones having the offseason to get healthy and Ridley coming off of a career year, the sky is the limit this year.

That wideout duo got some serious love in ProFootballFocus' rankings of the top WRs entering the 2021 campaign.

PFF WR Rankings 2021

Jones is ranked as the No. 5 wideout ahead of this season, with Ridley not too far behind at No. 11. That makes them the best duo in the rankings of any team, slightly ahead of Adam Thielen (9) and Justin Jefferson (10) of the Minnesota Vikings.

These rankings should excite Falcons fans heading into this season. Jones was hampered by injuries and appeared in just nine games last year, but he still made an impact with 51 receptions for 771 yards and 3 TDs.

Ridley, meanwhile, challenged for a Pro Bowl nod after recording 90 catches for 1,374 yards and 9 TDs. It was encouraging to see the third-year wideout step up with Jones limited. But there's no doubt the Falcons are stronger when they're on the field together.

If the team can resist the temptation of cap relief by trading Jones, they're sure to be deadly with that WR duo, No. 4 pick Kyle Pitts added to the mix, and offensive guru Arthur Smith as head coach.
