Ryan finished as the 15th-"best" fantasy quarterback last season after finishing as the third best the season before. The biggest change from those two years was the loss of Kyle Shanahan as offensive coordinator. Steve Sarkisian was not Shanahan, but neither was Shanahan in his first season with Atlanta. I don't expect any kind of repeat of 2016, although I do expect Ryan to move back closer to his average.Winston was the 14th-best fantasy quarterback on a per-game basis last season despite three games in which he finished under four fantasy points. We should see improvement with the offensive line and Chris Godwin taking over as a full-time starter at wide receiver, so another run toward being a top-10 quarterback should be in order. UPDATE: Winston has a pending three-game suspension, which will hurt his overall numbers, but it doesn't take him out of the fantasy equation.

 In the 11 games last season where Jameis Winston played 90%+ of the snaps, he averaged 307 yards, 1.7 touchdowns and 1.0 interception for a 18.9 fantasy point per game average. Had he played at that pace for a full 16-game season, he would have finished as the No. 2 quarterback. @4for4_John

Just a year ago, everyone was drafting Ryan over 100 picks higher. He was coming off one of the greatest quarterback seasons of all-time. Let's not forget that he has that in him. It isn't as though he was terrible last year either. Pro Football Focus graded him as their number two QB. He is a safe late-round bet with huge upside too.Winston is suspended for three weeks so he is undraftable outside of two-qb leagues. When he returns, however, we are looking at a top-10 quarterback. He was superb last season when healthy and still getting better.

The addition of Calvin Ridley bumped Ryan's stock up just a bit, enough to move him ahead of guys like Jared Goff and Jimmy Garoppolo. Ryan isn't going to be the top fantasy quarterback that he was in 2016, but he's someone you should be happy to roster if you're waiting until the late rounds to draft your quarterback. Did you know that if you combined Winston's and Ryan Fitzpatrick's passing yardage last year, it would've led the NFL? Their combined 4,607 yards were more than Tom Brady's 4,577, though their touchdowns (26) were somewhat lacking. Touchdowns are the hardest thing to predict, but seeing Winston's yardage with the weapons around him, big things are going to happen for him. The three-game suspension that he received definitely threw some water on the fire, but you should be able to snag Winston with the final pick in your draft and you should have a top-12 quarterback on a points-per-game basis.

Provided Julio Jones isn't a distraction, the Falcons remain stacked and a top-10 lifer like Ryan is destined to bounce backI believed in Winston last year and he failed me. I won't make that mistake in 2018 so he has to prove a lot but he could easily be a great sleeper
Rich Piazza

Adding Calvin Ridley to Julio Jones and the rest of the wide receiver group is going to be a good thing. The Falcons didn't give him $100 million for nothing. They will be throwing the ball.  
Jody Smith

That 2016 season now looks more like an anomaly, as Ryan looks more like an adequate rotational fantasy signal-caller than a starter. Winston missed three games last season but finished as the QB13 in fantasy points-per-game.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Falcons offense tanked without offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and Ryan averaged only 18.7 fantasy points per game. It is hard to be excited about Ryan with offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian still presiding over this offense, but he is a QB2 playing with WR Julio Jones.
