Desmond Ridder is not fantasy-relevant with Marcus Mariota starting for the Falcons

Desmond Ridder won't begin the season as the Falcons' starting QB - that honor belongs to Marcus Mariota. You can safely leave him on the waiver wire. Ridder is projected to earn 9.9 of his 69 fantasy points by rushing. While rushing is in his toolbox, it's not a huge part of his gameplan. Projected for 4.6 interceptions compared to 5.1 passing TDs, he carries more interception risk than is comfortable.
