Quarterback Rank: #10All Players: #53
Ryan took his game to a new level last season, taking charge of the Falcons new up-tempo, pass-first offense. Ryan set career highs in yardage, completion percentage and touchdowns. He had a monster season, having seven games with three or more scores and seven 300-yard games. This was his second straight season with at least 4,000-passing yards and three touchdowns. Ryan has at least 28 touchdowns three straight seasons. Ryan is an accurate, intelligent quarterback with a strong arm and the ability to fit the ball in tight spaces. He also has a great grasp of what the Falcons are trying to do offensively, which helps his production. And at age 28, Ryan is in the prime of his career. If there is a knock on him, he can flop in the big game but erased some of that last season.
Ryan has become a legit No. 1 fantasy quarterback. His numbers keep getting better and better. He is a top-ten fantasy quarterback, capable of being a top five in this offense. He can at least match last season and maybe get better, getting 5,000 yards and 40 touchdowns. He has the talent around him to post monster numbers.

comments about Matt Ryan


Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith is calling for major improvement on both sides of the line of scrimmage. He fears the team could bottom out for a second straight year if they do not change for the better. 'I feel like we've lost our way,' Smith said Tuesday, April 22. 'I feel like I've lost my way a little. The emphasis along the way is to be a bigger and stronger football team and win the line of scrimmage.' Smith said the team was hurt last season by a lack of strength and size up front. They ranked last in rushing, and QB Matt Ryan was sacked a career-high 44 times.
Fantasy Impact: The line needs to make big strides this season to help improve the rushing attack and keep Ryan upright.

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith praised the poise of QB Matt Ryan in Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills. He was sacked a season-high six times, and Ryan was hit nine times, but he was still able to make big plays when it counted. He finished with 311 passing yards and one touchdown. 'I thought Matt did a nice job,' Smith said Monday, Dec. 2. 'He was under some pressure. There were a couple of no-hitters. When I say no-hitters, there were basically unblocked guys that came. We had an identification on one. We had a mental error on another.' Ryan has been sacked a career-high 30 times this season. His previous high was 28 in 16 games last season.
