Who would've thought that Ryan's least efficient game of the season would come against the Browns, who were without multiple starters. It was just a bad game for them as a team, but they'll look to get past it really quick against a Cowboys team that's been somewhat underrated this year. They've yet to allow a team to score more than 28 points and have held 6-of-9 teams to 20 points or less. There's this tidbit, though: 9, 27, 15, 20, 16, 29, 26, 28, 21. You might be looking at those numbers and wondering what they mean. It's each of their opponent's points-per-game ranking this year. So we're clear, they've played just one team who's been a top-12 scoring offense and that was way back against the Panthers in Week 1. The Falcons bring something they haven't seen this year and it'll be difficult for the Cowboys to contain the pass-catchers they have. The Cowboys have allowed a rather-high 69.7 percent completion rate, which suits Ryan well, though they haven't allowed many plays down the field, as there's been a league-low 23 pass-plays that have gone for more than 20 yards against them. Knowing that the Falcons had an 'off week' and Ryan still managed to finish as a QB1 should tell you a lot. He's now thrown for at least 330 yards in six of his last seven games and is someone you should slot into lineups without thinking twice about it.

Matt Ryan efficient in Week 10 loss

Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 38-of-52 passes for 330 yards and two touchdowns while adding another 13 yards on three carries in Sunday's Week 10 loss to Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact

Although Ryan did not throw an interception, he did lose a fumble, resulting in his second straight game with a turnover. But since he did throw for 330 yards and a pair of scores, Ryan had a pretty solid showing in fantasy. Ryan has a tough matchup ahead when the Falcons host Dallas in Week 11. While the Cowboys defense is stout, the Ryan-lid Falcons offense will be hard to bench.
