Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Ryan was held under 300 yards last week and this matchup doesn't look much better. The pass offense continues to take hits, with Sanu getting traded away and both Hooper and Freeman going down last week. Ryan is nothing more than a low end QB1 this week, given the injuries to his offense.Stafford is officially out again this week, making Jeff Driskel the starter. With another loss this week, it would make you wonder if Stafford returns this season at all, with the Lions yet again out of the mix.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We knew Ryan had been leaned on all season, but now that Devonta Freeman and Ito Smith are out, it's all but guaranteed he throws the ball a ton. Is that smart against the Panthers? Probably not considering they're one of just three teams in the league that have more interceptions (11) than they have allowed passing touchdowns (10). There's a shift coming at some point, though, as the Panthers have allowed a rushing touchdown every 14.1 carries, a number that cannot be sustained. By comparison, no team allowed one more than every 20.7 carries last year. So, maybe Ryan can be the one to start the movement. The issue is that they're allowing just 6.83 yards per attempt on the year (7th-lowest mark) along with that ultra-low 3.05 percent touchdown-rate. They've also brought the pressure all year and delivered, racking up a 9.9 percent sack-rate, which ranks second in the NFL to only the 49ers. Ryan is somewhat used to it being the 12th-most pressured quarterback, though he's been solid while under pressure in comparison to his peers. This Panthers defense is certainly different than one Ryan played last year and is not one to attack in DFS. Knowing how much the Falcons will lean on him, he's still in the QB1 conversation, but he's more towards the bottom of it in this matchup. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Carolina is 16th against fantasy quarterbacks over the last five weeks, Ryan should be in the low QB1 to high QB2 mix on the road this week.
