Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Ryan should fare well in a shoot out against one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL, especially if WR Julio Jones returns this week.
 
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Julio or not, the line is playing better, and it's allowed Matt Ryan to get right. He's fantasy's #2 QB over the last month and the Saints represent an equivalently (#2) most generous fantasy QB D over that span.
