Matt Ryan torches Buccaneers in Week 6 win

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 31-of-41 passes for 354 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's Week 6 win over Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact

After a letdown performance in last week's loss to the Steelers, Ryan bounced back in a big way, leading the Falcons to a big division win over the Buccaneers. It was one of Ryan's better games as he did not record a turnover. Completing 75.6 percent of his passes, Ryan has a plus matchup versus the Giants in Week 7.

Matt Ryan contained by Steelers in Week 5 loss

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 26-of-38 passes for 285 yards, one touchdown, zero interceptions and a fumble lost in Sunday's Week 5 loss to the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan struggled on the road in Sunday's loss. While he did not throw a pick, he lost a fumble and was sacked six times. It was Ryan's worst game since Week 1 despite the plus matchup. Ryan has a prime get-right game in Week 6 versus Tampa Bay.

Matt Ryan torches Bengals secondary in Week 4 loss

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 29-of-39 passes for 419 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's Week 4 loss to the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the loss, Ryan is playing outstanding football. In his past two games, while leading Atlanta to a 1-2 record (1-3 overall), Ryan has accumulated a mind-blowing 1,065 yards passing and 12 total touchdowns with only one turnover. Atlanta's struggles are not on Ryan. Facing an inept Steelers secondary in Week 5, Ryan will once again have a great chance at putting up high-end QB1 production.

Matt Ryan lights up Saints in Week 3 loss

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 26-of-35 passes for 374 yards and five touchdowns while adding 12 rushing yards on four carries in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan has been magnificent in the past two games after struggling versus the Eagles in the season opener. Totaling nine total touchdowns (two rushing) and one pick in his past two outings, Ryan appears to be finally comfortable in Steve Sarkisian's offense, especially in the wake of Calvin Ridley's sudden emergence -- Ridley caught three TDs against the Saints and four in the past two games. Next up, Ryan has the Bengals, who are especially forgiving to opposing passing attacks in 2018.

Matt Ryan totals four touchdowns in Week 2

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 23-of-28 passes for 272 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception, adding another 18 yards and two touchdowns on four carries as a rusher in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

After a terrible outing in the season opener, Ryan bounced back with an outstanding four-touchdown performance against the Panthers, a team that Ryan plays extremely well against. WIth Calvin Ridley getting more involved, the Ryan-led Falcons offense could be more dynamic moving forward even without Devonta Freeman playing.
