Jordan Love Explodes For Three Touchdowns On Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 23, 6:43 PM

Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love completed 22 of 32 passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns, adding three carries for 39 yards, during the team's 29-22 win over the Detroit Lions. The 25-year-old played a near-perfect game in the upset win over the Packers division rival, making clean throws and big gains throughout the contest. Love has been improving not only for fantasy purposes but as an overall passer the past month, and he has now put his team into playoff contention with a critical win over Detroit. Next week's matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs is less than ideal, but with matchups against the New York Giants, Tampa Bay, and Carolina up after next week, the Packers quarterback will be a favorite of the streaming community. Love will be on the lower-end of the streaming list next week but should be added in all leagues with his juicy three-game slate after Week 13.

Desmond Ridder Looks Unimpressive In Victory

Sunday, November 26, 9:00 PM

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Desmond Ridder returned as the team's starter after the Taylor Heinicke experiment didn't work out too well. It seems like the time off didn't help Ridder improve at all. He was inaccurate and struggled throughout most of Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. He completed 13-of-21 passing attempts for 168 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in the win. Ridder also added seven rushes for 30 yards on the ground as he was eager to leave the pocket and run with the ball. There's not many good things to take away from Ridder's performance outside of the fact he didn't make a game-losing turnover in the fourth quarter. He should be considered a desperation option against the New York Jets next week.
