We've seen Ryan's life without Calvin Ridley before, and he did well, but that was back when Kyle Shanahan was the offensive coordinator. It also doesn't help to know Ryan has topped 16.6 fantasy points just once since Week 6. He may have caught the 49ers at the right time though, as they just lost defensive end Dee Ford and cornerback Richard Sherman for multiple weeks. Does this make the 49ers defense one that can be attacked through the air? Potentially, as losing three top-tier Pro-Bowl-quality starters will do that (don't forget about linebacker Kwon Alexander on injured reserve). Not many realize it, but here are the last six quarterbacks who've played against the 49ers with their fantasy totals: Kyler Murray (21.0), Russell Wilson (16.6), Kyler Murray (26.7), Aaron Rodgers (9.5), Lamar Jackson (24.3), and Drew Brees (40.1). To be fair, a lot of those quarterbacks were mobile, something Ryan obviously isn't. He's also been sacked 39 times despite missing a game. Brees was just the first quarterback to throw for more than two touchdowns against them, while there's been just one other quarterback who's topped 241 passing yards. Going into San Francisco isn't an easy place to play, either. Even before they were considered the elite defense they are now, they allowed just one quarterback to top 19 fantasy points while at home last year. The injuries to Ford and Sherman help, but Ryan is still just a mid-to-high-end QB2.

Matt Ryan solid in Week 14 win

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 20-of-34 passes for 314 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

After starting the regular season with six straight games with at least 300 yards passing, Ryan cooled off for a while. However, in the past two games, Ryan is back on the 300-yard passing bandwagon looking to finish out the year strong. While Ryan is healthy and hot, he will have a tough matchup in Week 15 at the 49ers.
