Matt Ryan named NFL MVP

The Associated Press named Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan the league's MVP at the 2017 NFL Honors ceremony Saturday night. He also took home the Fed Ex Air Player of the Year award.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan earned the NFL MVP award, plus, the Fed Ex Air Player of the Year honor Saturday night due to his tremendous statistical 2016 campaign. Playing in all 16 games, Ryan threw for 4,944 yards passing, 38 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Along with his jaw-dropping numbers, he led the Falcons to an 11-5 record in the regular season and a Super Bowl berth. Ryan's accolades are well-deserved for the nine-year veteran, who was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft.

Matt Ryan makes a case for MVP in Sunday's win

Matt Ryan was on fire in Sunday's win that propelled the Falcons into the Super Bowl. Ryan is in the running for NFL MVP and Sunday improved his case (even though it's not supposed to have an impact). Ryan finished with a stat-line that included: 392 yards, four passing touchdowns, and one rushing touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

Going into the Super Bowl, Ryan is an interesting choice over Brady. He has no experience in the Super Bowl, but is having his best season to date. It's too early to decide on Ryan over Brady or vice versa, but it'll be an interesting matchup of quarterbacks.

Matt Ryan torches Seahawks in Divisional win

Matt Ryan threw for 338 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's win over the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan and the Falcons continued to roll despite the matchup against Seattle. The team will take on a much weaker secondary in the Packers next week, so Ryan will continue to be an elite DFS option.

Matt Ryan ends MVP-caliber season in style

Matt Ryan completed 27 of 36 passes for 331 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan ended his season with 4,944 passing yards, 38 touchdowns and just seven interceptions. He completed 70 percent of his passes and had a 9.26 YPA. In short, Ryan put up an MVP-caliber season, and has played himself back into consideration for an early-round draft pick in 2017. For now, Ryan and the Falcons will rest during their bye week, and gear up for the divisional round of the playoffs.

Matt Ryan nearly perfect in win over Panthers

Matt Ryan completed 27 of 33 pass attempts with two touchdowns on Saturday against the Panthers. He also rushed twice for nine yards.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan completed nearly 82 percent of his pass attempts, and was outstanding as usual against the Panthers. With the Falcons having a chance to lock up the second seed in the NFC, expect Ryan to have a big performance in Week 17 against the Saints.
