Falcons | Matt Ryan the best without pressure

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 14:34:14 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan's passer rating is 131.1 when he's in a clean pocket. That's the best rating in the NFL by more than 10 points.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan is well deserving of the MVP award after his career year in which he threw for nearly 5,000 yards. He and the Falcons were one of the most potent offenses in the league this season and Ryan cemented himself as a low-end QB1 consideration for 2017 fantasy drafts.

Falcons | Matt Ryan dominant in win

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 15:33:33 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 27-for-38 passing for 392 yards and four touchdown passes in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Green Bay Packers. He did not throw an interception, and Ryan added a rushing score. His 392 yards rank second all-time in an NFL conference game, behind Ryan's 2012 performance of 396 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan has vaulted himself into the upper-echelon QB1 conversation for 2017 drafters, but it appears as though he will need to learn a new offense if coordinator Kyle Shanahan indeed takes the San Francisco 49ers' head coach position.

Falcons | Atlanta could extend Matt Ryan's deal

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 06:34:37 -0800

The Atlanta Falcons are expected to discuss a contract extension with QB Matt Ryan during the offseason, even though he still has two years remaining on his current contract, according to multiple sources. A potential extension could make him the highest-paid player in the league, surpassing Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck's deal.

Fantasy Tip: The 31-year-old Ryan posted career highs in passing yards (4,944) and touchdowns (38) during the 2016 season, while throwing just seven interceptions in 534 attempts. He is one of the leading candidates for the NFL MVP award and should be viewed as an elite option in all fantasy formats.

Falcons | Matt Ryan on hot streak

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 16:21:28 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has six consecutive seasons of at least 4,000 passing yards. That's tied for the second longest streak in NFL history. He posted a franchise record 4,944 yards in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan is a big reason why the Falcons are in the NFC title game. He's a top MVP candidate coming off a career season. Regression should be expected next season after such a marvelous campaign, but Ryan is still a QB1 consideration.

Falcons | Matt Ryan torches Seahawks

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 16:50:20 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 26-of-37 for 338 yards and three touchdowns in a NFC Divisional Round win over the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan took three sacks but was in total control of the Falcons' up-tempo attack otherwise, connecting with Julio Jones, Tevin Coleman and Mohamed Sanu for scores. He did nothing to hurt his argument for NFL MVP, while offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan was brilliant once again in getting the matchups he wanted. Ryan should have another field day next week if Julio Jones can play, as neither the Dallas Cowboys nor the Green Bay Packers have enough on defense to hold this passing game in check.

Falcons | Matt Ryan tosses four TDs

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 21:43:35 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 27 of his 36 pass attempts for 331 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 17 game against the New Orleans Saints. He also ran twice for two yards. He set a franchise record with his 4,944 yards in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan also added 38 touchdowns and seven interceptions, leading Atlanta to a first-round bye in the NFC playoffs. More importantly, he was a stud for fantasy owners who waited on draft day to take him in the middle to late rounds. He will also be a must-have option for those playing fantasy postseason pools.

Falcons | Matt Ryan throws for two scores

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 15:43:17 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 27 of his 33 pass attempts for 277 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 16 game against the Carolina Panthers. He rushed twice for nine yards, too. Ryan broke his own franchise mark by reaching 33 touchdown passes on the season, and he also set an NFL single-season record by hitting 13 different receivers with a touchdown pass.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan has had a nice bounce back season for fantasy owners who waited until the late rounds to draft him, throwing for two or more touchdowns in each of his past three and 11 of his 15 games overall.

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan was 18-for-28 for 237 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions Sunday, Dec. 11, against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: He didn't even need Julio Jones (toe) to put up 42 points on the Rams. Ryan remains an elite option in fantasy.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan has thrown for at least 250 yards in all but one game this season and has 11 touchdowns passes in his last five games. He is scheduled to face the Los Angeles Rams in his next game and can be a No. 1 quarterback in leagues.

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.
