Matt Ryan News
The Atlanta Falcons made it a priority to get quarterback Matt Ryan some more protection on the offensive line in last week's draft, selecting two offensive linemen in the first round last Thursday after Ryan was sacked 42 times in 2018, the second highest total of his career. Guard Chris Lindstrom was the 14th overall pick and right tackle Kaleb McGary went 31st overall. It was just the second time the Falcons took two offensive linemen with their first two picks since 2012. Head coach Dan Quinn is hesitant to name both rookies immediate starters, but there's a chance they both slot in right away.
Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan finished out the 2018 season with a bang against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 17. Ryan threw for 378 passing yards and two touchdowns on 31-of-44. However, Ryan made fantasy owners day when he caught a five yard touchdowns pass from Mohamed Sanu. That play took Ryan from a solid 20 point fantasy day to an impressive 27 point day. This topped off an impressive year for Ryan in which he has regularly been a fantasy starter for the owners willing to wait on a quarterback in their drafts. Hopefully we can see this type of performance again in 2019.
Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had a solid if unspectacular Week 16 performance against the Carolina Panthers. Ryan threw for 239 yards on just 15 completions but still managed to have three touchdowns. Ryan will have finished off most fantasy players seasons with another 20 point fantasy week, and has continued to be a reasonably consistent contributor down the stretch. Going into next week there are some question marks given the way the Buccaneers defense has improved lately. In addition, there is always a concern of weather in Tampa Bay and therefore Ryan may be someone you need to check closely before starting him on Sunday.
Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had a strong fantasy day with three total touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals. The key for Ryan was a rushing touchdown which tipped him over the 20-point mark in most fantasy formats. Ryan actually managed to add 7.8 fantasy points with his legs in standard scoring leagues, to go with two touchdowns and 231 passing yards. Ryan finished the season strong at home and now heads to Carolina to face a Panthers team who have had trouble defending the pass. If you are a Ryan owner then I would start him next week despite the question marks that come with him being on the road.
Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan draws a tough Week 15 matchup as he will face the Arizona Cardinals at home. The veteran signal-caller played well against the Green Bay Packers in Week 14, turning in his first three-touchdown game since Week 9. He will have his work cut out for him this weekend, however, as the Cardinals have been tough against the pass this season. Arizona's pass defense ranks 10th in DVOA and is allowing the third-fewest fantasy points per game to the quarterback position. Ryan's recent play keeps him in consideration for fantasy lineups but he should be treated more as a high-end QB2 for Week 15.
