Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
The past three weeks have made Matt Ryan seem more like his usual self rather than the surprise fantasy owners have gotten early this season. He is not neccessarily a surefire start this week in an away game versus the Rams. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Rams D tends to play better at home and with WR Julio Jones not right, Ryan is probably more of a high-end QB2 this week.
