Matt Ryan was a little better last season than in 2015 with an extra 350 yards and an improved completion percentage by 3.6%. Last year, he was the #2 QB, the year prior, #18. The only significant difference is that his TD% went from 3.4 to an absurd 7.1. Expect it to fall back toward his career 4.7% mark, especially with Kyle Shanahan gone.

Matt Ryan sharp against Steelers on only drive

Matt Ryan played only the first drive against the Pittsburgh Steelers on week 2 of the preseason, but looked sharp. He completed 4-of-6 passes for 57 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan was as good as expected and was efficient on one drive, but the touchdown came on the ground, highlighting the concerns of his lofty price in many leagues. Ryan will have a very hard time replicating his hyper-efficient 2016 campaign, and is particularly unlikely to repeat his touchdown mark. He is still a strong QB option, and should come off the board between fourth and sixth at the position in most leagues. However, don't feel the need to spend up if QBs are going earlier than expected.
