Matt Ryan restructures deal to stay with Falcons in 2021

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has reportedly agreed to restructure his contract with the team heading into a reduced salary cap season in 2021.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan and the Falcons agreed to restructure his contract, reducing it from $23 million to $21 million spread across the next three seasons via guaranteed bonus. This move reduces the Falcons' salary cap from $40.9 million down to $26.9 million. Ryan threw for 4,581 yards and 26 touchdowns for the Falcons in 2020 but will need help along the offensive line to provide more time for him to throw in the pocket, an issue that became evident as the 2020 season progressed. The NFC South promises to be one of the toughest divisions in 2021 and the Falcons opting to bring back their franchise quarterback will help establish continuity within the offensive scheme.

Matt Ryan 'not expected to go anywhere'

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero on Tuesday afternoon: "Don't expect Falcons' Matt Ryan to go anywhere."

Fantasy Impact

Ryan has been rumored to be on the NFL trade block this offseason, but apparently that is not the case. If Ryan is to stay in Atlanta for the long haul we can expect a high ceiling, high floor fantasy option that can sustain a high powered Atlanta fantasy offense. Pelissero added that Julio Jones isn't going anywhere either.

Matt Ryan logs three touchdowns in Week 17

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 29-of-44 pass attempts for 265 yards and two touchdowns while adding another touchdown rushing in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan finally got it going without Julio Jones in the final three games of the year. Assuming he remains with the Falcons, Ryan will look for a bounceback season in 2021.

Matt Ryan has solid game in loss

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 27-of-35 passes for 300 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 16 loss to Kansas City.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan played well in consecutive games without Julio Jones following terrible showings without the stud receiver earlier in the year. Despite the loss, Ryan still managed 300 yards and a pair of scores. He will look to find a win in Week 17 against the Bucs.

Matt Ryan has monster outing in Week 15 loss

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 34-of-49 passes for 356 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's Week 15 loss to Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan went off despite the fact that he's struggled in every other game in which Julio Jones was not fully healthy or he was ruled out. It was Ryan's first 300-yard game since Week 7 and his first game with three touchdowns since Week 9. Ryan gets the Chiefs in Week 16, a tough but exploitable matchup.
