Ryan has been a disappointment from a fantasy perspective so far this season, with just five touchdowns and five interceptions. But Sunday is a prime chance for him to redeem himself. Ryan typically performs well off a bye, averaging 260 passing yards with 12 touchdowns over his last five games in that situation. While the Dolphins haven't been particularly generous to opposing quarterbacks (they've allowed the 10th-fewest fantasy points to the position), that's due much more to teams not needing to throw against them in light of their abysmal offense. With Julio Jones back to closer to full strength, the Falcons surely want to get their passing game straightened out, and Ryan should throw early and often. He makes a rock-solid QB1.

Matt Ryan throws one touchdown in loss

Matt Ryan threw for 248 yards with a touchdown and interception in the 20-17 loss to the Dolphins. He completed 24-of-35 passes and was sacked two times.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan has thrown 6 interceptions in the last three games, which equals his touchdown total on the season. His lone 300 yard game came in Week 1 against the Bears. Ryan will face a Patriots defense that has allowed multiple 300 yard games this season. Look for Ryan to rebound in Week 7 with this favorable match-up.
