The Atlanta Falcons have one of the best offensive rosters in the League on paper. This season they will have a great chance to have not one but two receivers break the 1,000-yard mark.
Expectations are going to be very high for the Atlanta Falcons in 2019 and rightly so considering their offensive talent. They have depth at every position and look to establish themselves as a Super Bowl contender.
The biggest factor for Atlanta’s air attack will be how big of a step Calvin Ridley has taken after his rookie season.
As a rookie Ridley was impressive though he looked to run out of gas late in the season. Though this could simply be a product of poor offensive play calling from the Falcon’s former offensive coordinator.
This season Ridley and Julio Jones are going to establish themselves as the best receiver duo in the League. If healthy both should easily smash the 1,000-yard mark as Atlanta again proves they are still a Super Bowl contender.
When you have the weapons around you like Matt Ryan does and factor in the fact his new offensive coordinator is a fan of deep balls it all adds up to one thing. Atlanta is in for a huge year offensively and will be led by Calvin Ridley and Julio Jones.
Both will benefit from the other as Ridley continues to establish himself as a deep threat it might offer Jones fewer double and triple-teams. Regardless, we know the player Julio Jones is and the numbers he will pile up as long as he stays healthy.
Matt Ryan has an opportunity to continue to put up MVP caliber numbers when you consider the receivers and running backs he will have around him. Weapons he hasn’t had since Julio Jones and Roddy White were on the same field. Weapons that will once again make the Falcons Super Bowl contenders in 2019.
