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.

Falcons | Matt Ryan threw for 252 yards, TD

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:30:49 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 19 of his 28 passes for 252 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 2 against the Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners likely were disappointed in Ryan's performance, as he had over 200 yards passing at half. However, with a rather lopsided score in the third quarter, the team shifted to a run-heavy offense with Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman stealing the show. Ryan will look for better results in Week 3 in Detroit.

Falcons | Matt Ryan owns stellar numbers vs. GB

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 22:05:09 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has faced the Green Bay Packers six times during the regular season in his career, completing 130-of-195 passes (66.7 percent) for 1,427 yards, while logging 13 touchdowns compared to only five interceptions. Additionally, that has also produced his highest quarterback rating (99.7) against any opponent whom he's faced at least five times in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Those outstanding numbers also don't include his memorable performance last year in the NFC Championship Game, when he was 27-of-38 (71.1 percent) for 392 yards against the Pack, with four touchdowns and zero interceptions -- good for a 139.4 QB rating. In other words, Ryan has Green Bay's number, and that prowess of their defense should be on full display once again in another prime time matchup opposite the Packers on Sunday night.
