Ryan did have some appeal earlier on this off-season, but with Julio Jones now out of town, I'm staying completely away from the veteran QB. With a WR corps that lacks proven depth, it's difficult to find a path for how Ryan finishes as a top-12 QB. He might be able to provide you with a solid floor each week, but the path for upside simply isn't there. He's a fine QB2 for your Superflex formats, but I'm willing to look elsewhere at the position in my 1QB leagues.

Matt Ryan restructures deal to stay with Falcons in 2021

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has reportedly agreed to restructure his contract with the team heading into a reduced salary cap season in 2021.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan and the Falcons agreed to restructure his contract, reducing it from $23 million to $21 million spread across the next three seasons via guaranteed bonus. This move reduces the Falcons' salary cap from $40.9 million down to $26.9 million. Ryan threw for 4,581 yards and 26 touchdowns for the Falcons in 2020 but will need help along the offensive line to provide more time for him to throw in the pocket, an issue that became evident as the 2020 season progressed. The NFC South promises to be one of the toughest divisions in 2021 and the Falcons opting to bring back their franchise quarterback will help establish continuity within the offensive scheme.
