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. @ClutchFantasySolid upgrade over Brissett, +4.6% Accurate & Frame throws, -3.4% Uncatchable rate.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.Going to a new team is always tough on a quarterback, but it surely helps that Rivers has played in Frank Reich's offensive system before. Back in 2014-2015, Rivers threw for 9,078 yards, 60 touchdowns, and 31 interceptions over those two seasons. The offensive line in Indianapolis is the best Rivers has ever played behind, and his receiver corps of T.Y. Hilton, Parris Campbell, and Michael Pittman isn't too shabby, either. He may be towards the end of his career, but he's going to have plenty of fantasy-worthy performances for streamers.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 IND just came off a season with the 3rd fewest passing yards in the league, with 3108. And not for lack of trying. Phil has thrown for 4000 3 times with fewer ATT than what Indy had 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.
