Falcons | QB plans to work out with Julio Jones

Wed, 13 Jun 2018 18:08:32 -0700

Atlanta QB Matt Ryan said he plans to work out with the receivers before training camp and expects WR Julio Jones to participate in the workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has skipped most of the offseason workouts because of his contract situation but should report to training camp on time. Jones is one of the top receivers in the NFL and will be a No. 1 fantasy receiver in all leagues. Ryan also has a chance to be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

Falcons | Matt Ryan agrees to extension

Thu, 03 May 2018 13:08:08 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan agreed to a five-year contract extension with the Falcons Thursday, May 3, that will make him the first quarterback to make $30 million per season, according to sources. The deal includes $100 million in guaranteed money.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan has been a solid quarterback over the last several years and probably will spend the rest of his career with the Falcons. He has terrific weapons in the passing game and is adding Calvin Ridley to the receiving corps. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in leagues in 2018.

Falcons | Matt Ryan extension talks hit 'snag'

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 19:46:17 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan's talks with the club concerning a contract extension "appear to have hit a snag," with general manager Thomas Dimitroff saying he couldn't put a timetable on it. He added he doesn't know how close the two sides are but that "we talk about it and it seems like things are right around the corner."

Fantasy Tip: Previously, it was thought that an extension would get done this week, but now it seems that is no longer the case. Nonetheless, it is still likely that the two sides come to an agreement, with Ryan, a recent league MVP who has taken his team to the Super Bowl, probably going to get somewhere around $30 million annually. Not only is he probably the best quarterback in the history of the franchise, he's also still a legit QB1 for fantasy purposes in all formats.

Falcons | Matt Ryan to ink extension this week?

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 23:40:57 -0700

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan is "likely" to sign a contract extension this week that is "expected to pay him near $30 million per season," according to Jeff Schultz of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Fantasy Tip: After reaching the Super Bowl and winning MVP honors during the 2016 season, Ryan took a step back this past season, though that isn't to say he had a down year, since he certainly did not. After all, the 10-year veteran still eclipsed the 4,000-yard mark for the seventh straight campaign while logging a solid 91.4 passer rating. He's still firmly in the QB1 picture without question and should present much better value next season.

Falcons | Matt Ryan to give a discount?

Fri, 02 Feb 2018 19:52:20 -0800

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank expects QB Matt Ryan to take a hometown discount when the two sides work on a contract extension. "We expect him to work with us to ensure there's talent around him," Blank said.

Fantasy Tip: Expect the Falcons to do what it takes to keep Ryan around. Although his numbers slipped from his 2016 MVP campaign this season, he remains a perennial QB1 candidate.

Falcons | Atlanta focused on Matt Ryan extension

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 10:52:56 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan's potential contract extension will be the focus of the offseason, according to general manager Thomas Dimitroff.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan's 2018 numbers paled in comparison to his 2017 MVP campaign, but he was bound to regress after a career year. The veteran signal-caller has thrown over 4,000 yards in seven straight seasons now and is a threat for QB1 status each year.

Falcons | Matt Ryan throws for 210 yards

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 15:59:51 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 22-for-36 for 210 yards and one touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles in the Divisional Round playoff game Saturday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan played well this season but was held to one or fewer touchdown passes in each of his last eight games. He should have most of his weapons back next season and can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback or a solid backup in all fantasy leagues.

Falcons | Matt Ryan full go Thursday

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 11:00:15 -0800

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (non-injury related) participated fully in practice Thursday, Jan. 11, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan is good to go for the divisional playoff matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. He'll need to be at his best in a hostile playoff environment versus an elite defense, but he is a cheaper DFS play on DraftKings.
