The Bears are 5th against fantasy quarterbacks, but they have also played Matthew Stafford without his best wide receiver and Daniel Jones. Ryan should be a low-end QB1 at home. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
You have to feel bad for Ryan and the Falcons offense, as they continue to post numbers year-in and year-out, yet the team doesn't win games. Ryan has thrown 90 passes through two games, which puts him on a pace of 720 pass attempts, and keep in mind they led throughout the entirety of their Week 2 game. The Bears will be their toughest test yet, though. They've actually faced the sixth-most pass attempts but have allowed the third-fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks. When throwing the ball, Daniel Jones and Matthew Stafford combined to average just 0.29 fantasy points per pass attempt, which ranks as the second-lowest mark in the league. The addition of Robert Quinn in Week 2 helped the defense generate more pressure up front, which in turn didn't allow Jones to take many shots down the field. Going back to the start of the 2019 season, the Bears have allowed just one quarterback to post more than 19.9 fantasy points, and that was Patrick Mahomes. During that 18-game stretch, there's been just one quarterback to average more than 7.72 yards per attempt. There are going to be many weeks where we love Ryan as a QB1, but this is not one of them. He should be looked at as a middling QB2 in this tough matchup.
