Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons disappointed several fantasy football owners of his in 2013, finishing the season as the 14th best overall quarterback which in most leagues qualified him as a QB2 standing at season's end. Don't let that stat fool you though as I personally believe that he had his best season of his career last year. Let me explain. He threw for 4,515 yards and 26 touchdowns all without the help for the most part of wide receivers Roddy White, Julio Jones and running back Steven Jackson. While those three expect to return healthy, Ryan did lose tight end Tony Gonzalez to retirement, but with the return of the big three, Ryan will find himself in a much better situation. Ryan is just two-years removed from a 4,719 yard, 32 touchdown campaign and there is no reason to believe that he can't bounce back and come close to, if not top those numbers. Ryan belongs in the next group of quarterbacks drafted after the top-3 are off of the board.
