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.

Falcons | Matt Ryan throws for 321 yards in win

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 15:33:27 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 21 of his 30 pass attempts for 321 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 1 at Chicago.

Fantasy Tip: Matty Ice also rushed three times for 11 yards, but fantasy owners might be a tad disappointed with the lack of passing scores. The league's highest-scoring offense had difficulty against what isn't a terribly impressive Bears defense. He'll look for better results in Week 2 at home on Sunday Night Football against the Packers.

Falcons | Sloppy outing for Matt Ryan

Sat, 26 Aug 2017 18:27:51 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed four of his 11 passes for 36 yards and an interception against the Arizona Cardinals in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: The odds of Ryan repeating his numbers from last year's MVP campaign are slim, but you don't need to panic over this performance. He might not be a top-five fantasy option at his position, but Ryan should still be able to provide QB1 production.

Falcons | Matt Ryan sharp in brief stint

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 18:33:43 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan led a touchdown drive in his only series against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the preseason Sunday, Aug. 20, completing four of his six passes for 57 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Even without Julio Jones or Devonta Freeman playing, Ryan looked sharp. The Falcons should have one of the top offenses in the NFL again this season, and Ryan can be trusted as a QB1.

Falcons | Matt Ryan has not started extension talks

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 11:02:05 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan said he has not started contract extension talks with the Falcons at this point. He said he is not concerned about his next contract but is happy that owner Arthur Blank said Ryan will be compensated for his play.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan threw for 4,944 yards and 38 touchdowns in 2016 and will have most of his offensive weapons back this season. He will be working with a new offensive coordinator but should be a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan was one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL this season and should have most of his weapons back next season. He should be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues in 2017.

Falcons | Matt Ryan efficient in loss

Sun, 05 Feb 2017 20:07:55 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 17 of his 23 passes for 284 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-28 loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI Sunday, Feb. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan's solid performance will be forgotten thanks to Atlanta's epic meltdown. Despite the loss, Ryan should still be drafted as a QB1 next year.
