Falcons | Matt Ryan struggles in win

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 21:10:40 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 15 of his 27 passes for 221 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions during the team's Week 14 victory over the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan channeled Nathan Peterman Thursday night, tossing three picks in the span of four passing attempts. He eventually made enough plays to win, but the end result was arguably his worst statistical performance of 2017. Things should be easier next week versus the lone non-contender in the NFC South, Tampa Bay, who Ryan passed for 317 yards against in the first meeting.

Falcons | Matt Ryan posts 173 yards

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 13:40:39 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 16-for-29 for 173 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan has thrown for less than 200 yards in two of the last three games but has facing two of the best defenses in the NFL in those games. He will be facing an improved New Orleans Saints defense in Week 14 but can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Falcons | Matt Ryan surpasses 300-yard mark

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 13:51:12 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 26-for-35 for 317 yards and one touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan posted only his third 300-yard game of the season this week and has nine touchdowns in the last five games. He will be facing a terrific Minnesota Vikings defense in Week 13 and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.

Falcons | Matt Ryan playing better

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 06:10:49 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has thrown nine touchdowns and two interceptions with a 104.9 passer rating over the last five games. He threw six touchdowns and six interceptions with an 87.3 passer rating in the first five games.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan had a considerable Super Bowl hangover for the early stage of the season, but he has begun to right the ship. It's not the high-end QB1 reputation he earned last season, but with all the injuries and struggles at the position in fantasy, he remains a solid QB1.

Falcons | Matt Ryan throws for pair of TDs on MNF

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 21:07:10 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 19-of-27 passes for 195 yards and two touchdowns in the team's Week 11 win Monday, Nov. 20, against the Seattle Seahawks. He also had three rushes for 12 yards.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't his 335-yard, three-touchdown effort in Seattle last year, but this was still an acceptable performance, of course, and it also extended Ryan's streak of having multiple touchdown passes in a game to four. The 10-year veteran hasn't lived up to the lofty expectations he set for himself a year ago when he was crowned league MVP, but he's still enjoying a nice campaign that keeps him in the perennial QB1 conversation.

Falcons | Matt Ryan quickest to 40,000 yards

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 19:02:52 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan became the quickest quarterback in NFL history to reach 40,000 passing yards (151 games) with his performance in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys, breaking New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees' record by one game.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan has had a fine season up to this point, but given the many career bests that he set a year ago, he's also left a little bit more to be desired from owners who invested an early draft pick on the Falcons' veteran signal-caller. For instance, Ryan's 263.6 yards per game is his lowest mark since 2011. Despite this, he's still worth plugging in the lineup every week and could churn out numbers closer to his norm throughout the rest of the second half of the year.

Falcons | Matt Ryan tosses two touchdowns

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 20:49:04 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 22 of his 29 pass attempts for 215 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 10 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan has still only hooked up with Julio Jones for one touchdown so far this season, and the offense has just looked disjointed for most of the season. Still, if you drafted Ryan you have to roll with him at this point. The Falcons visit the Seahawks on Monday night in Week 11.

Falcons | Matt Ryan goes over 300 yards

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 14:13:28 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 24 of his 38 pass attempts for 313 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Week 9 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Last season it wasn't newsworthy when Ryan went over 300 yards, as he hit the mark six different times, while going for 250 or more yards on 14 total occasions. This season has been a struggle, however, as it is just his second 300-yard game and his fifth 250-yard game in eight outings. Ryan does have one touchdown pass in each of his eight contests in 2017, but Sunday marked just the third multi-TD game. He also has zero games with three or more scoring strikes. He remains a low-end QB1 heading into Wee 10 against the Cowboys.

Falcons | Matt Ryan has solid outing

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 13:17:08 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 18-for-29 for 254 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan was dealing with inclement weather but still posted his biggest passing yard total in four games. He will be facing a solid Carolina Panthers defense in Week 9 but can still be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues.

Falcons | Matt Ryan throws over 200 yards

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 04:25:49 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan finished 23-for-33 for 233 yards and one touchdown in a Week 7 loss against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: This makes two touchdowns in two games for Ryan. Granted, there was fog later in the game as a built-in excuse, but New England's leaky pass defense still came through. Ryan will attempt a better game in Week 8 against a surprising New York Jets squad.
