The Falcons are a complete sieve as a defense against quarterbacks. Every quarterback facing the Falcons has thrown over 300 yards, including Bridgewater himself in Week 5. In that game, he threw for 313 yards and two touchdowns, and he completed 27/36 passes. I don’t see why Bridgewater wouldn’t succeed once again this week, as little has changed with either team. Potentially, Christian McCaffrey might even return for this game, although that’s still up in the air. If McCaffrey does play, Bridgewater will regain his top receiving weapon, and he would become a reliable QB1. Even if McCaffrey sits, Bridgewater is still a low-end QB1 and an excellent streaming option for the week.
