Falcons | Matt Ryan has solid outing

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 14:23:54 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 26-for-34 for 269 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12. He also rushed for 15 yards on four carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan continues to be one of the top quarterbacks in fantasy leagues and has 10 touchdowns in his last four games. He will be facing a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense next week but should still be a starting option in all leagues.

Falcons | Matt Ryan quiet in road loss

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 18:30:01 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 18 of his 33 pass attempts for 267 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 10 road loss against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan was bothered all day by the Eagles pass rush and this game marked just the third time in 10 starts where he was held to one passing score. Fantasy owners will need to find a replacement in Week 11, as the Falcons have a bye.

Falcons | Matt Ryan tosses four touchdowns

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 22:02:52 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 25 of his 34 pass attempts for 344 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 9 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Nov. 3. He also ran twice for no gain.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan has an improved offensive line to give him time to his receivers and it is making a huge difference. As long as Julio Jones remains healthy, Ryan is a solid low-end QB1 in most fantasy formats. The Falcons face the Philadelphia Eagles on the road in Week 10.

Falcons | Matt Ryan tosses three TDs

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 21:46:44 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 28 of his 35 pass attempts for 288 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 8 game against the Green Bay Packers. He also ran twice for nine yards.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan continues to be very effective for fantasy owners, throwing at least one touchdown in each of his eight games, and two or more scores in six of his outings. The Falcons face the Buccaneers in Thursday's Week 9 game, and it's a very favorable matchup against a pass defense which was torched for 513 yards and four touchdowns against Oakland.

Falcons | Matt Ryan has strong third quarter

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 23:52:14 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan wound up 27-for-42 for 335 yards and three touchdowns in a 26-24 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Ryan threw all three TDs in the third quarter, when he was 13-for-17 for 220 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Games like this cement Ryan's reputation as one of the better quarterbacks in football. Ryan faded slightly from view last year but appears to be back with a vengeance. He deserves to be a solid QB1 in all fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Matt Ryan takes big step back

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 20:25:15 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 15 of his 28 pass attempts for 267 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 5 game against the Denver Broncos. He also ran three times for three yards.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan took a giant step back after his 500-plus-yard performance last weekend, which obviously was going to happen against a good Denver defense. He will face another quality pass defense in Seattle in Week 6. Still, Ryan remains a quality low-end QB1 despite the difficult matchup.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan has been one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL over the first four weeks of the season with 11 touchdowns and 1,473 yards during that span. Ryan should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues while he is on this hot streak.
