Ryan had a nice bounce-back season for the Falcons, producing near his levels of past years. He kind of flew under the radar last season but finished seventh in fantasy quarterback scoring last season. Ryan had 28 touchdowns to 14 interceptions and threw for nearly 4,700 yards. Ryan had scores in all but the last game of the season, showing better consistency for fantasy teams. He also threw for more than 200 yards in every game and had six 300-yard games. The Falcons remain a team that struggles to run the ball and are a pass-first offense. Ryan has some good options to work with in the passing game and is really in the prime years of his career. Ryan has four straight seasons with 4,000-passing yards. He has at least 26 touchdowns five straight seasons. He is an accurate, intelligent quarterback with a strong arm and the ability to fit the ball in tight spaces. Ryan also has a great grasp of what the Falcons are trying to do offensively, which helps his production. And at age 30, Ryan is in the prime of his career. If there is a knock on him, he can flop in the big game and doesn't do well under intense pressure.
Ryan is a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback. He is capable of the big game every week and will post consistent fantasy numbers in a pass-first offense. Ryan can get around 5,000 passing yards and 30-plus touchdowns in this offense. He won't go as high as some of the top options but is capable of being a top-five fantasy quarterback before the season is over.

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan said he likes the offense that offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan has brought to the team because it is a balanced offense. 'Balance on offense is huge,' Ryan said. 'I think with the run scheme that Kyle brings in, that's going to help us improve in the run game. Certainly, when you get the running game going, that helps the quarterback and that helps the passing game. I'm all for it.'

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan was sacked five times as the team's offensive line continues to struggle with injuries and poor play. 'We had way too much pressure,' head coach Mike Smith said. 'Our quarterback was hit and sacked way too much. There were times where we really didn't have a chance to get the play off, and that's very difficult for a quarterback, and we have to do better with our protection.'
Fantasy Impact: Ryan's play is suffering because of poor offensive line play once again.
