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.

Falcons | Just one TD strike for Matt Ryan

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 13:57:21 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 24 of his 35 pass attempts for 248 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Another week, another game Ryan and Julio Jones have failed to combine for a touchdown. The combination has yet to hook up for a score this season. Matty Ice should have a big game on Sunday night in Week 7 in a Super Bowl rematch with the New England Patriots and their leaky pass defense.

Falcons | Matt Ryan throws for 242 yards, TD

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 16:30:55 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 24 of his 42 pass attempts for 242 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 4 game against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan has been a huge disappointment from a fantasy perspective, posting just five touchdown passes with five interceptions through four games and one 300-yard performance. The team has a bye in Week 5, which is much needed considering Ryan lost Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu to injury in the loss.

Falcons | Matt Ryan strong in Week 3

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 15:53:24 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan threw for 294 yards and two touchdowns but suffered three interceptions Sunday, Sept. 24, in a 30-26 win over the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan did a nice job getting the Falcons off to a solid start but faltered slightly. One of the interceptions was a pick-6 by Glover Quin. Ryan's mistakes didn't cost the team, however, and he should have another strong week as a QB1 against the Buffalo Bills in Week 4.
