2020 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Desmond Ridder in 2020. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
Returning to Cincinnati
January 8, 2021
Ridder will return to Cincinnati for the 2021 season, Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports reports.
ANALYSIS
Ridder broke out for the Bearcats in 2020, completing a career-best 66.2 percent of his pass attempts for 2,296 yards and a 19:6 TD:INT ratio to go along with 592 rushing yards and another 12 scores. While his traits don't necessarily translate to a high draft pick at the next level, he could eventually find his way into the competition for an NFL roster spot somewhere. That will be put on hold for at least another season, however, as Ridder will lead the Bearcats into battle again in 2021.

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.
