Summary

Quarterback Rank: #15All Players: #111
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.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
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.

comments about Matt Ryan

Notes

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan admitted Tuesday, April 19, that he took too long at times to process offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's scheme in 2015. Ryan said he is excited to have Shanahan back for another season. 'As you're in a system more, you start focusing on the things that are important,' Ryan said. 'What you're going against defensively, what your keys are in protection, what you're looking for from a coverage standpoint.' Ryan also said that he thought all the players involved in a recent passing camp felt more comfortable with the offense, adding that he could tell early on that they were a lot further along than at certain points midway through last season.
