Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
This Falcons team is going to be airing the ball out in 2020. With that in mind, plus the weapons he has at his disposal, a top-10 fantasy finish for Ryan isn't out of the question.This offense is going to be built around the run game, which limits Mayfield's overall ceiling from a fantasy perspective. However, we've seen Kirk Cousins be fantasy relevant in certain matchups over the past couple of seasons and that's around what we should expect from Mayfield this year.

Matt Ryan has supported 2 Top 24 PPR WRs four times in his career. Amongst active QBs, only Aaron Rodgers has more seasons of supporting 2 Top 24 WRs. @ClutchFantasy 
Mike Tagliere

Ryan is the definition of consistency in fantasy football. He's not going to win you your fantasy championship, but he's the type of quarterback you can set-it-and-forget-it most of the time. There was just one quarterback who busted (less than 14 fantasy points) less often than him, and that quarterback (Lamar Jackson) is going in the top three rounds. If you want to wait until the middle rounds to snag Ryan, that's been a solid plan the last handful of years.Do you recall how horrendous Jared Goff was under Jeff Fisher back in 2016 where he averaged just 5.3 yards per attempt while throwing five touchdowns and seven interceptions? The very next year, Goff averaged 8.0 yards per attempt with 28 touchdowns and seven interceptions. It just goes to show how big of an effect a coach can have on an offense, especially one led by a young quarterback. Is Kevin Stefanski the right coach? Time will tell, but don't forget Mayfield was being drafted as the No. 4 quarterback in fantasy drafts last year. The talent is there and the surrounding cast got even better.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Matt Ryan just seems to keep churning out quality fantasy finishes and this used to make him a top fantasy option every year. Now the equation has changed as Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson have shifted the bar. Here's a reminder that Matt Ryan still offers a 20-point floor pretty much every week and should have room for more now that he's recovered from the unfortunate Week 7 injury that derailed his 2019 season and lead to less than ideal production with a real lack a TDs towards the end of the year.Despite the additions of OBJ and Kareem Hunt, the Cleveland Browns looked more like the, well, Cleveland Browns in 2019. It's hard to know how much of the blame should fall on their sophomore QB but Freddie Kitchens should certainly shoulder the majority. With his third head coach and his third new system in three years, it's hard to know what we should expect from Baker this season. I'm not bullish on the youngster but I do believe there's enough upside to make him a viable fantasy option. He also has the job safety to make him a reasonable superflex choice. Just understand this offence is likely to be run-heavy so don't expect too much from Mayfield in upside.

 Paced as QB6 from the bye week on(10 weeks) with bottom half of the league numbers in ATT. Thanks to those first 6 weeks you can now get him at an appropriate price, unlike last year.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Ryan had 4,466 yards passing and 26 passing touchdowns. He does not have the upside of some of the younger more mobile quarterbacks, but he puts up monster passing numbers every year.
