Desmond Ridder
QuarterbackQB
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. Read Past Outlooks
Fine after getting dinged-up
November 18, 2019
Ridder "got dinged early" during Saturday's win over USF, but is expected to be completely fine to play this weekend against Temple according to head coach Luke Fickell, Fletcher Page of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
ANALYSIS
Ridder had a bit of a down game against the Bulls (9-18 for 78 yards) but never had to leave the contest. Fickell said he assumes the quarterback will be "perfectly fine" for the matchup with Temple.
