Desmond Ridder

QuarterbackQB
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Talented, experienced, dynamic are the words that come to mind when breaking down Ridder. He continues to improve, too, and now enters his senior year after a dominant 2020 in which he bumped his completion rate from 55.1 percent to 66.2 and his YPA from 6.7 to 8.2. Ridder was also maximized as a runner in the red zone with nine of his 12 rushing scores coming in that area. He gets the bulk of his pass-catchers back in the mix along with budding star running back Jerome Ford. Ridder has a high floor and potential to be among the best fantasy producers in the nation.

Efficient outing
November 24, 2021
Ridder completed 17 of 23 pass attempts for 274 yards and three touchdowns while rushing three times for 46 yards and a score against SMU.
ANALYSIS
The senior quarterback continued his impressive play while completing 70 percent of his passes against the Mustangs. Ridder now has five straight weeks throwing multiple passing touchdowns while has also rushed for a score in three consecutive showings. The 6-foot-4 quarterback will look to cap off the Bearcats' perfect season next week against East Carolina.

FanDuel College Football: Week 12 Main Slate

C.J. Stroud will likely get most of the fanfare Saturday, and rightly so, but Kenny Pickett has his own matchup to salivate over and could be a great pairing with some affordable opportunities at other spots.
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Ridder was a breakout star in 2018, accounting for 25 total touchdowns and 3,028 total yards in his first season as a starter. He returns to the helm of one of the more up-tempo offenses in the nation (76.2 plays per game) that leans heavily on the run. Ridder and running back Michael Warren II combine to make one of the nation’s most dangerous rushing tandems, and Warren’s presence helps loosen rushing lanes for Ridder. His biggest challenge will be finding a new top target after losing Kahlil Lewis, who had a 26 percent target share in 2018.
