Falcons WR Christian Blake ran five pass routes in Week 9 against the Broncos.
Blake appeared to be Calvin Ridley's direct backup in Week 8, playing 54 percent of team's offensive snaps and seeing two targets after Ridley left the game with a foot injury. No amount of poring over snap counts and pass route totals could have predicted Olamide Zaccheaus would be the beneficiary of Ridley's absence. Zaccheaus ran a route on 32 of Matt Ryan's 38 drop backs against Denver and caught 4-of-6 targets for 103 yards and a touchdown. Zaccheaus would seem to be in play next week against the Saints if Ridley is sidelined again. Predicting Atlanta receivers' opportunity when Ridley or Julio Jones misses a game is the leading cause of stress headaches among fantasy managers. Nov 09 8:56 am (EST)
- Blake caught 11 of 24 targets for 91 receiving yards across nine appearances for the Falcons this season.
- Blake was unable to bring in his only target of Sunday's 29-22 win over the 49ers.
- Coach Dan Quinn stated Monday that Blake is going to work alongside Olamide Zaccheaus as a duo-replacement for Calvin Ridley (abdomen) over the remainder of the season, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports. All Christian Blake News
