After two games, the Colts' receiver room has been decimated by injuries. We'll see if that changes this week, but Ryan has suffered as the QB28 in fantasy. Kansas City might be 22nd in pass defense DVOA, but that's largely due to their 11th ranking in passing touchdown rate allowed. They are 16th in success rate and EPA per dropback with the eighth-lowest yards per attempt allowed. Their pass rush has been unstoppable, ranking second in hurry rate and third in pressure rate. This is where Ryan crumbles. Through two games among 33 quarterbacks (minimum ten pressured dropbacks), he's 31st in PFF's pressured passing grade and 26th in pressured yards per attempt. Ryan is a low-end QB2.

Matt Ryan throws three interceptions in loss to Jaguars Sunday

Matt Ryan completed 16 out of his 30 pass attempts for 195 yards versus the Jaguars. He threw three interceptions to pair with a passer rating of 34.0 en rout to the Colts' 24-0 loss to the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan looked all the part of an aging quarterback on Sunday, however not all the blame can be tossed his way as he was without his WR1 and had no Alec Pierce either. The 37-year-old should remain on the waivers or on benches for the time being as he has just one touchdown to four interceptions on the season and a QBR of 31.3.
