Mike Tagliere

He's had some issues since returning from his ankle sprain, as he's now finished three of the four games averaging 6.2 or less yards per attempt. It doesn't help that he was without Julio Jones for Week 13 but there's definitely concern as we head into the fantasy playoffs. The good news is that Ryan's one good game since returning came against the Panthers when he completed 21-of-31 passes for 311 yards and a touchdown in Week 11. It's difficult to take much away from them holding Dwayne Haskins to just 147 yards and no touchdowns, as that's kind of the norm. There have been just five quarterbacks who've finished better than the QB20 against the Panthers this year, and the one thing they have in common is pass attempts. Ryan was the only one who finished with more than 13.6 fantasy points without throwing the ball 39-plus times. The Panthers have lost both defensive tackles Dontari Poe and Kawann Short, and have really struggled to stop the run, so more attention could be focused on that are of the field in their practices this week, which could lend to more production in the passing game for the Falcons. He's no longer a locked-in must-start with the way the defense is playing, but he can be considered a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 provided Julio is back in the lineup. If Julio sits, Ryan is just a middling QB2.The final stat line for Allen may look good for fantasy owners, but he had a rough game against the Redskins last week. He was sacked seven times, completed just 58.7 percent of his passes, and fumbled twice (losing one). He's now fumbled an absurd 10 times this year. Ever since the Falcons bye week, they've seemingly been a different team. They've had some tough competition (Drew Brees twice, Jameis Winston, Allen), but have allowed just 99-of-153 passing for 1,109 yards (277.3 per game), four touchdowns (1.0 per game), and six interceptions (1.5 per game). Allen's performance was the worst of the bunch, as he threw for 325 yards, no touchdowns, and four interceptions. It's odd to think they turned a corner, but it appears they have. They'll also have had a full 10 days to prepare for this game after playing on Thanksgiving Day. The only plus for Allen is that the Falcons failed to generate a sack in each of the last two games after sacking him five times in Week 11. It's not like Allen has shown enough of a ceiling where you need to take the risk to play him as anything more than a low-end QB2.

The Panthers are 10th against fantasy quarterbacks, Ryan has been up and down, but should be a QB2 at home in a tough matchup. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
The good news is that Julio should be back in the lineup this week. The bad news is that Ryan has not had a 20-point game since Week 6. The upside is always there for Ryan and these pass catchers, but he is on that borderline of QB1/2 value this week. The way to attack the Panthers is on the ground, so if Atlanta is able to find some success running early in the game, they will likely stick to that as much as possible, which limits Ryan's upside.With the Panthers struggling overall, this has created a game script for Kyle Allen to see some garbage time, helping his fantasy value recently. However, this is likely a close game. He put up a stinker against them earlier this season, and Allen looks to be without the veteran Greg Olsen this week as a security blanket out there. Avoid Kyle Allen, on the road, under a new head coach.
