Ryan hasn't missed a game since 2009, so let's operate as if he plays without any Week 17 ramifications. It's not like the Falcons need to give 37-year-old reserve Matt Schaub reps. He has enjoyed the second-best season of his career, entering the final weekend with 4,546 passing yards, 33 passing touchdowns, a career-high three rushing scores, and six picks. The Buccaneers have played better defense down the stretch, but they have still allowed 8.2 yards per pass attempt and an NFL-high 111.0 quarterback rating. This season's QB3 is a top-five option.

Tampa Bay's D has improved in recent weeks, but I like Ryan to end the season on a strong note at Tampa Bay.
