Desmond Ridder Has A Good Matchup In Week 3

  • Headshot for Desmond Ridder

    Atlanta Falcons quarterback Desmond Ridder will be facing a Detroit Lions defense in Week 3 on the road that has allowed 25.1 fantasy points per game (fifth-most) to the QB position through two weeks. They also just placed star safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson (pectoral) on Injured Reserve. Ridder hasn't set the world on fire in his first two games, and he's only attempted 50 passes, completing 34 of them for 352 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. He's added 11 carries for 38 yards and another score. The 24-year-old hasn't looked all that sharp, but he's done enough to get the Falcons two wins in the early going. Ridder is going to continue having his ups and downs as a passer in his first year as the full-time starter, so even though he's going against a porous defense this week, he should be considered a low-end QB2 in a run-first offense.
