The Shanahan offense is going to fit Ryan perfectly. The Falcons added Justin Hardy to an already excellent WR duo and either Tamme or Moeaki is likely an improvement over last years TE grouping.

Ryan was very solid with 4,694 yards passing and 28 passing touchdowns, but the Falcons have a new coaching staff. They have to proven running backs, they released WR Harry Douglas and WR Roddy White is on the wrong side of 30-years old. They need WR Julio Jones to stay healthy, as this offense would be a disaster without him.

This is a big downgrade for Foles in a less than spectacular offense. I would recommend you steer clear of Foles in 2015 as the question marks are just too big.

- James Hatfield, Hatty Waiver Wire Guru

Matt Ryan closed out 2014 so well for fantasy owners that they may forget the lulls in his scoring. I was hopeful the Falcons could upgrade their O-Line int he draft and free agency, but instead they focused on D. With running game guru Kyle Shanahan calling the shots and an O-Line that's shaky I need Ryan to slip in drafts to take him.

- Dennis Esser, Coach Esser

Foles is getting a fresh start in St. Louis and he'll have to prove that he wasn't a product of Chip Kelly's offense. With an improved defense and Todd Gurley in town I expect Foles to not be called on to throw it around too often.

- Dennis Esser, Coach Esser

New Kyle Shannahan based offense intends to run more this year. Roddy White on his last legs.

- Sablich Brothers, The NY Times

Foles was mediocre with a standout cast before the injury. Steep drop off in receiving talent in STL.

- Sablich Brothers, The NY Times

A great value pick as your QB1 this year. Hopefully the o-line can stay healthy in 2015

Matt Ryan is who we thought he was and thats never a bad thing. Over 4k yards and 26-30 TDs is about as stable as it gets after the top-five.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Inconsistent and in a new town, Foles is tough to trust. That being said, a change of scenery could help him.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

 
With Nick Foles going to the Rams, I do not like the change for him in terms of fantasy production.

- Tom Schriner, FFLockerRoom

The Falcons had trouble scoring touchdowns last season, but were able to put up plenty of yards as Ryan threw for the fifth most yards in the league. Julio Jones is why it's hard to move Ryan too far down the ranks, but the Falcons as a team are lacking in some key areas, especially the offensive line. But since they also have a weak defense Ryan will need to keep throwing the ball. His ADP is probably a bit high for me this season, but if it drops we know he's going to throw the ball.
