Matt Ryan started the game for the Falcons only to hand the ball off once to Tevin Coleman and exit. The Falcons obviously didn't want to put their star QB in harms way in the last preseason game, and that one snap had to just have been a mental thing for Ryan.

Fantasy Impact: Nothing to see here, just a good thing he avoided injury. Week one against the Eagles on Monday Night Football in the dome is going to be a great one. Ryan is a great option to plug in as your starter for this upcoming week in an expected shoot-out with Chip Kelly's offense.

Matt Ryan finished 3/7 for 49 yards on the night, and was sacked three times. The offense could never really get clicking due to bad offensive line play and no Julio Jones, Roddy White, or Devonta Freeman.. Ryan will look to rebound in limited action in the Falcons final preseason game next week.

Fantasy Impact: This was Ryan's worst game of the preseason, but considering how well he played in the first two contests, there is nothing to worry about here. With a difficult matchup in the trenches, and his top targets out, Ryan did all he could. Ryan is still without a doubt a solid QB1 option in all formats.

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.

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.

Ryan was very solid with 4,694 yards passing and 28 passing touchdowns, but the Falcons have a new coaching staff. They need WR Julio Jones to stay healthy, as this offense could be a disaster without him. The rest of the offense is a combination of unproven players and over-the-hill WR Roddy White.

Safe and solid is what you get with Ryan - you can write his 16 games played, 28-30 TD passes and 4,500+ yards in pen

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

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.

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.

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

The biggest issue with Matt Ryan is the total number of TD's he throws as he gets enough yardage, but this should be the year he has healthy WR's and can throw over 35+ TDs with nearly 4,000 yards. Matt Ryan is always a value pick.

The 2015 edition of the Atlanta Falcons appears to be a very solid offensive unit. Quarterback Matt Ryan and wide out Julio Jones will look…
