Matt Ryan goes off in Week 6

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 30-of-40 attempts for 371 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's Week 6 win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan played his best game since Week 1. It likely has to do with the return of a healthy Julio Jones. Ryan will look to build on his monster game in a favorable Week 7 matchup against the Lions.

Matt Ryan pedestrian again in Week 5

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 21-of-37 passes for 226 yards and an interception in Sunday's Week 5 loss to the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

It was another pedestrian outing for Ryan, who has now gone two straight games with fewer than 285 yards passing without a touchdown. With all the talent around him, Ryan should be playing better. This is why Dan Quinn was let out the door. The Falcons get the Vikings in Week 6.

Matt Ryan with another dud in Week 4 loss

Falcons QB Matt Ryan Matt Ryan completed 28-of-39 passes for 285 yards in Monday night's Week 4 loss to the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

While this game was set up to be a shootout, only one of the quarterbacks got the memo. Spoiler alert. It was not Ryan, who only passed for 285 yards without a score. While he entered the game with his full arsenal, you can tell Julio Jones was not fully healthy, which is why he did not play again after halftime. Without Jones on the field commanding the enemy defense's attention, Ryan appeared pedestrian. Ryan will look to get back on track in Week 5 against Carolina.

Matt Ryan struggles in Week 3 loss

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 19-of-38 passes for 238 yards, one touchdown, and an interception in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan was off to a terrific start through the first two games but came back down to earth in Sunday's loss again the Bears and their stout defense. With Julio Jones off the field, the Atlanta offense could not get going through the air. Ryan will look to get back on track in Week 4 against the Packers.

Matt Ryan tosses four touchdowns in Week 2 loss

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 24-of-36 passes for 273 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan has now passed for at least 450 yards or thrown at least four touchdowns in two games to open the year. It is safe to say he is pacing career numbers and could come close as long as the Atlanta defense continues to take games off. Ryan gets a tough matchup at home against the Bears in Week 3. Despite the matchup, however, Ryan is a must-start until he proves otherwise.
