Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Ryan remains a better real-life quarterback than fantasy one, and failed to throw a touchdown pass for the first time in almost two seasons last week against Minnesota. The Saints are certainly not a pushover against the pass by any means, but this is do or die time for the Falcons, and they should bring their A-game on Thursday night. Expect Ryan and the Falcons to have some tricks up their sleeve, and for him to rebound and be a QB1 in this one. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Ryan has only 1 touchdown pass in his last two games and the Falcons have a tough matchup against the Saints 16th ranked fantasy quarterback defense that has played well in recent weeks. Ryan is a QB2 at home.
