Ravens | Baltimore nearly traded up for Matt Ryan

Sun, 05 Feb 2017 16:38:15 -0800

The Baltimore Ravens nearly had a deal in place to trade up for the No. 2 pick in the 2008 NFL Draft in order to select Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan, according to sources, but the deal fell through when Baltimore wouldn't include its 2009 second-round pick.

Fantasy Tip: It's impossible to know how Ryan's career would have turned out had he landed in Baltimore, and the only thing that matters now is that Ryan is at the helm of one of the most dangerous offenses in the NFL. He looks like a QB1 for the foreseeable future.

Falcons | Matt Ryan winless vs. Patriots in career

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 20:08:17 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan is 0-2 in his career against the New England Patriots. His last meeting opposing them came back in Week 4 of the 2013 season, when the Falcons were defeated, 30-23.

Fantasy Tip: Of course, it's a small sample size, but it's worth noting that the Patriots are just one of two teams (Pittsburgh Steelers) Ryan has not defeated since entering the league in 2008. Even so, for what it's worth, he's put up solid numbers versus the Pats in those two games, totaling 620 yards and completing 62.2 percent (51-of-82) of his passes. Odds are he'll post similar numbers in what figures to be a high-scoring Super Bowl 51.
