Matt Ryan throws one touchdown in Week 11 win

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 21-of-31 passes for 311 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's Week 11 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

After opening the year with six straight games with at least 300 yards passing, Ryan picked up his seventh 300-yarder following a two-game drought in Sunday's win. Sunday's win, which was Atlanta's second straight victory, would also be only the second time this season in which Ryan did not throw a pick. While the Falcons season may be over, they look like a team ready to finish strong and play spoiler down the stretch with the hopes of saving Dan Quinn's job for one more season, right or wrong. Ryan will get the Buccaneers at home in Week 12.

Matt Ryan (ankle) upgraded to limited in practice Thursday

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan (ankle) was limited in practice on Thursday a day after missing Wednesday's session as he continues to recover from an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan played in last week's impressive win over the Saints in New Orleans, but he is still not fully recovered from his ankle injury. The expectation is that he will be able to suit up for the team's Week 11 matchup against the Panthers in Carolina, but keep an eye on his status heading into the weekend.

Matt Ryan throws two touchdowns in Week 10 win

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 20-of-35 passes for 182 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's Week 10 win over the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

While Ryan threw a pick, he also tossed a pair of touchdowns en route to a shocking Falcons win over the Saints. And although the Falcons' season is realistically over, Ryan will still be a top fantasy quarterback for the duration. Ryan gets Carolina in Week 11.

Matt Ryan will play Week 10

The Falcons have said Matt Ryan will play Week 10 despite his sprained ankle. Atlanta takes on the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Impact

While it's not a great matchup for Ryan on paper, the veteran has done well historically against the Saints. The Falcons will almost assuredly be trailing in this game, and Ryan has shown that garbage points are a real thing. He's currently the No. 10 QB for the week based on our expert consensus.
