Ryan has been disappointing from a fantasy perspective through the first two games, but he's hardly to blame. Although he has just two touchdowns, he's thrown for 573 yards and has completed 69 percent of his passes. While the lack of touchdowns is disappointing, it seems pretty clear that Ryan hasn't missed much of a beat with new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian. The Lions' passing defense is off to a terrific start, but it's still unclear whether the success is due to the talent-level or the poor quarterback play of the Lions' opponents (Carson Palmer and Eli Manning). Regardless, Ryan can pick apart any defense, and the Lions allowed only five rushing touchdowns to running backs last season, second in the league. That means the chances of multiple passing touchdowns is high in this one which, of course, keeps Ryan as a top-end QB1.

Matt Ryan sharp in Atlanta victory over Green Bay

Matt Ryan completed 19 of 28 passes for 252 yards and one TD Sunday night in the Falcons' 34-23 win over the Packers. Ryan added eight yards on one carry and did not have a turnover.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan played well against Green Bay, leading Atlanta to a big early lead and easy win. The Falcon offense looked like the juggernaut of last year again Sunday night. Ryan is a weekly QB1 in all formats.
