Just a year ago, everyone was drafting Ryan over 100 picks higher. He was coming off one of the greatest quarterback seasons of all-time. Let's not forget that he has that in him. It isn't as though he was terrible last year either. Pro Football Focus graded him as their number two QB. He is a safe late-round bet with huge upside too.

Matt Ryan, Falcons agree to extension

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting the Atlanta Falcons and QB Matt Ryan have agreed to a five-year contract extension worth roughly $30 million per year and $100 million in guarantees.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan's monster five-year extension will make him the league's first player to earn an amount of $30 million on a yearly basis. Now two years removed from an MVP season and a Super Bowl appearance, Ryan will once again go out there and prove he is amongst the league's best at his position. He followed up his outstanding 2016 campaign with a tremendous regression across the stat line, especially in the touchdown category. He threw for a career-high 38 in 2016, but only threw 20last season, his lowest total since his 2008 rookie season. From a fantasy perspective, I am not a believer in Matt Ryan without Kyle Shanahan, nor do I believe in Seve Sarkasian. Even with Calvin Ridley's addition, Matt Ryan will remain in the QB2 tier in my 2018 rankings.
