Matt Ryan has been playing his best football of his career and it should continue Monday night against the hapless Saints defense. Expect him to toss 40 passes as they attempt to keep up with the high flying Saints defense. 
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Ryan is your No. 1 fantasy quarterback so far this year, with 365 yards passing per game with a total of five touchdowns to one interception. The Saints have only given up one passing touchdown this season, but they've allowed 343.5 yards passing per game. They are a bad defense and the touchdowns will come. The Eagles are currently the No. 1 pass defense according to Football Outsiders, having given up zero passing touchdowns so far, but they have just faced Robert Griffin III and Jay Cutler. Roethlisberger should have more success.
FantasyPros Staff
FantasyPros
 Roethlisberger produced 0.56 fantasy points per drop back in Week 2. The Eagles have allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks through two games, but have not faced an offense that is explosive as the Steelers. We view Roethlisberger is a QB1 in Week 3.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Saints D rebounded after a bad opener, but Ryan is the top-ranked fantasy quarterback after two weeks and he should be a good option in New Orleans against a suspect D.Big Ben had an off game in the rain at home, I expect him to rebound next week against a secondary that is going to be outmatched.
