Cold12/29/2014 11:24:00 AM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan threw up a clunker just when his team and fantasy owners needed him.
Insight: ryan was 29-of-47 for 260 yards, no touchdowns and a pair of interception. it was the interceptions that was the killer, as both were returned for touchdowns.
 
12/21/2014 5:40:00 PM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had a solid day during Sunday's win over the Saints.
Insight: He went 30-of-40 for 322 yards and one score. Ryan has played well down the stretch and will now try and help Atlanta earn a playoff berth in Week 17.
 
12/14/2014 5:04:00 PM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan threw for two touchdowns and one interception against the Steelers in Week 15.
Insight: The interception was the difference in the game as William Gay returned it for a touchdown and Atlanta lost, 27-20, but for fantasy owners Ryan had a good day. He was 26-of-37 for 310 yards with the two touchdowns and one turnover. He is a good option next week in New Orleans for fantasy championship week.
 
Hot12/9/2014 9:09:00 AM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was 24-of-39 for 375 yards, four touchdowns and one interception.
Insight: Ryan has always been a much better home quarterback than on the road, but this time he got the ball to Julio Jones and the talented wideout did the rest. It's his second consecutive game with at least 360 yards passing and he faces a vulnerable Steelers secondary, at home, in Week 15.
 
12/1/2014 9:58:00 AM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was 30-of-41 for 361 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the Falcons upset Arizona.
Insight: Ryan continues to be a much better passer at home (108 QB rating) versus on the road (81.4). He's got one more home game on the schedule for you to start him, against Pittsburgh in Week 15.
 
11/23/2014 6:21:00 PM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had an up-and-down afternoon against the Browns.
Insight: While he threw for 273 yards and two touchdowns, Ryan also had one interception and one lost fumble. He is still a QB1 for Week 13.
 
11/16/2014 6:02:00 PM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan threw for 268 yards and a touchdown against the Panthers.
Insight: He is a borderline QB1 moving forward. Even with all his weapons healthy, Ryan has lost his big-play potential because of all the holes on his offensive line.
 
11/9/2014 7:16:00 PM
Description: Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryanthrew for 219 yards in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.
Insight: He also threw a touchdown, and should be considered a borderline QB1.
 
10/26/2014 1:02:00 PM
Description: Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was impreesive in the first half against the Lions but disappeared after the break and finished with 228 yards, two scores and one interception.
Insight: Since he was 14-of-17 for 160 yards and both scores in the first half, the second 30 minutes must have been torture for his fantasy owners.
 
10/19/2014 6:09:00 PM
Description: Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was 29-for-44 for 228 yards and threw one touchdown.
Insight: Ryan and the Falcons offense was pretty bad. Atlanta scored just one touchdown, averaging 3.9 yards per play in the game. At least Ryan did not throw an interception.
 
10/13/2014 10:50:00 AM
Description: Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan threw for 271 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
Insight: Ryan is averaging 308.3 ypg this season. He's been much better at home (335.0 ypg) than on the road (.281.7) and is a viable fantasy option when playing in Atlanta.
 
9/30/2014 3:41:00 PM
Description: It will take a brave fantasy owner to start Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan in Week 5 as all the indicators point downward.
Insight: Ryan has thrown five interceptions in two road games this year after throwing 14 on the road (versus three at home) last season. And on Tuesday 40 percent of his starting offensive line was placed on injured reserve (RT Lamar Holmes and C Joe Hawley). That's going to be a lot to overcome.
 
9/29/2014 10:32:00 AM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan continues to struggle on the road, though he did throw for 298 yards and three touchdowns.
Insight: He also threw two interceptions and that's five in two road games this year after throwing 14 on the road (versus three at home) last season. He's become an "only start at home guy."
 
9/19/2014 9:12:00 AM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was a stunning 21-of-24 (87.5 percent) for 286 yards and three touchdowns.
Insight: Ryan and the Falcons could do no wrong in the 56-14 annihilation of Tampa Bay, but the big lead ended his hopes of earning the 300-yard passing bonus.
 
9/14/2014 5:22:00 PM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan finished 24-of-44 for 231 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions against the Bengals in Week 2.
Insight: Ryan followed up his 448 yard and three touchdown Week 1 with a huge dud in Week 2. Fantasy owners could not have expected a repeat of those Week 2 numbers but Ryan was still very disappointing in Cincinnati. We still like him to have a big season, but in bad matchups like Sunday's was, it would be wise to lower expectations a lot or even find a plug-in replacement.
 
Hot9/7/2014 6:12:00 PM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was a fantasy monster Sunday, throwing for 448 yards and three scores without an interception.
Insight: Ryan was sacked just one time as his offensive line, a weak point last season, held up against the Saints. If they can continue to give Ryan protection, he's going to do a lot more damage with his three high-quality targets (Julio Jones, Roddy White, Harry Douglas).
 
8/23/2014 9:27:00 PM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan completed 18-of-23 passes for 224 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.
Insight: Ryan looks poised to return to his 2012 numbers (4,515 yards/32 touchdowns) with his preseason performances so far. He is 28-for-37 for 314 yards, two touchdowns and no picks this month. With a poor defense and a shaky ground attack, Atlanta could be in a lot of shootouts and Ryan will be throwing a lot this season.
 
11/22/2013 9:43:00 AM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan threw for 292 yards, but didn't throw a TD pass for the first time this season.
Insight: He came close as Darius Johnson was ruled down at the six inch line. At least he wasn't picked off after throwing nine interceptions in his last four games, but 13 points isn't going to be enough to beat New Orleans and Drew Brees very often.
 
11/3/2013 5:47:00 PM
Description: Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has thrown seven interceptions over the last two games.
Insight: Ryan also has thrown for just one touchdown in each of the last two games after producing at least two in each of the first six this season. He has another tough matchup in Week 10 against the Seahawks after throwing for 219 yards, one TD and three INTs Sunday at Carolina. Hopefully he'll have a healthy Roddy White back for that one.
 
10/20/2013 5:22:00 PM
Description: Falcons QB Matt Ryan burned the Bucs (and fantasy owners who benched him) with 273 yards and three touchdowns on 20-of-26 passing in Week 7.
Insight: Ryan didn't miss Julio Jones and Roddy White much, as he had Harry Douglas and Jacquizz Rodgers making plays for him while Tony Gonzalez drew multiple defenders. Ryan has thrown for at least two touchdowns in all six of his games this season.
