Falcons | Matt Ryan has 300-yard game

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 15:48:16 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan was 24 of 36 for 334 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 20-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan ended the year with 4,591 yards passing, and that is a pretty impressive number for yardage leagues. Take a closer look at his stats and you see a problem. He only threw 20 touchdowns and had 16 interceptions, so the overall numbers weren't too good. He's not in danger of losing his job, but Ryan will need a stronger overall performance in 2016.

Falcons | Matt Ryan probable for Week 17

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 12:12:22 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (hip) was a full participant in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as probable for the Week 17 game against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: After a full week of practice, look for Ryan ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) to finish the season strong against the porous New Orleans defense. Still, he shouldn't be viewed as slam-dunk start at FantasyScore. Ryan has a single touchdown or fewer in six of his past seven outings, and he topped 300 yards just twice during the span. All said, the matchup and cap hit are more attractive than Ryan's current form, which is always a warning sign.

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 22:47:48 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Matty Ice ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) wraps up a difficult and erratic season against the Saints in an ultra-favorable matchup. Look for Ryan to finish strong at a cut-rate FantasyScore price.

Falcons | Matt Ryan takes part in practice

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 14:43:12 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (hip) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) should be able to play this week and will have a favorable matchup against the New Orleans Saints. He has thrown four touchdowns and five interceptions in the last five games but did surpass the 300-yard mark in Week 16. Ryan could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider, but there will be other options more attractive for owners.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($8,200, 16.4% of cap) should be on your FantasyScore map for week 17. He has clearly taken the number one spot in the Falcons WR lineup.

Falcons | Matt Ryan thrives in Georgia Dome

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 10:14:16 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has posted considerably better numbers throughout his career at home compared to on the road. In 60 career games at the Georgia Dome, Ryan has a 95.8 QB rating, having registered 97 touchdown passes versus just 46 interceptions while completing 66.8% of his passes. By comparison, Ryan has an 86.3 QB rating in his 64 starts away from home, completing 62.2% of passes to go with 102 touchdowns and 60 interceptions.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) will be facing the undefeated Carolina Panthers for the second time in three weeks, and though the Falcons were blanked 38-0 in the first meeting, owners should expect a much better performance from Matty Ice and the offense this time around. Ryan is coming off an encouraging performance against the Jaguars and as the split stats show, he's typically more consistent at home. At his current price, he could return excellent value.

Falcons | Matt Ryan throws for 246 yards

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 14:27:11 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 22-for-35 for 246 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan has struggled recently with eight interceptions in his last five games but does have six touchdowns during that span. He has not thrown for 300 yards in any of his last five games. He is facing the Carolina Panthers in Week 16 and is not a great option for owners.

Falcons | Matt Ryan has opportune matchup Sunday

Tue, 15 Dec 2015 16:03:46 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan will be facing a Jacksonville Jaguars defense in Week 15 that has allowed the seventh-most passing yards (3,621) and touchdowns (24). They also have only seven interceptions as a team, which is tied for the third-fewest in football.

Fantasy Tip: While Ryan's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) struggles as of late are certainly a cause for concern, owners should keep in mind that all quarterbacks go through rough patches at one point or another. The Jaguars defense will provide Ryan with a desirable opportunity to break out again, and in a must-win situation for Atlanta, Matty Ice could easily reward his fantasy owners. With his price dropping this week on FantasyScore, the eight-year veteran is shaping up to be an excellent value play.
