The addition of Calvin Ridley bumped Ryan's stock up just a bit, enough to move him ahead of guys like Jared Goff and Jimmy Garoppolo. Ryan isn't going to be the top fantasy quarterback that he was in 2016, but he's someone you should be happy to roster if you're waiting until the late rounds to draft your quarterback.

Matt Ryan, Falcons agree to extension

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting the Atlanta Falcons and QB Matt Ryan have agreed to a five-year contract extension worth roughly $30 million per year and $100 million in guarantees.

Fantasy Impact

Ryan's monster five-year extension will make him the league's first player to earn an amount of $30 million on a yearly basis. Now two years removed from an MVP season and a Super Bowl appearance, Ryan will once again go out there and prove he is amongst the league's best at his position. He followed up his outstanding 2016 campaign with a tremendous regression across the stat line, especially in the touchdown category. He threw for a career-high 38 in 2016, but only threw 20last season, his lowest total since his 2008 rookie season. From a fantasy perspective, I am not a believer in Matt Ryan without Kyle Shanahan, nor do I believe in Seve Sarkasian. Even with Calvin Ridley's addition, Matt Ryan will remain in the QB2 tier in my 2018 rankings.
