 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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Safe to say he's back? After a 446-yard, three-touchdown performance, you'd better believe it. Now on to play the Chargers, who've been getting better against the pass as the weeks go by. They are a team that allowed seven passing touchdowns with two interceptions over the first two weeks but have since allowed just seven touchdowns while intercepting five passes over a seven-game sample size. Aaron Rodgers was part of that sample when they held him to just 23-of-35 passing for 161 yards and one touchdown. It could have simply been an off-day for him, as he and Devlin Hodges were the only two quarterbacks who averaged less than 7.0 yards per attempt. The Chargers have had a relatively easy schedule, though. Part of the reason they've allowed so little production is due to the fact that no quarterback has thrown more than 35 passes against them. They've actually allowed the 12th-most fantasy points per pass attempt despite allowing the sixth-fewest points to them. The 35-attempt mark is one Mahomes has hit in 6-of-7 full games. Even with this defense at nearly full-strength last year, Mahomes tallied 256 yards and four touchdowns on just 27 pass attempts. You're playing him wherever you can.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.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Well, Mahomes is back and he's still very, very, very good. You're starting him if you have him. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Chargers are 6th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Mahomes is a matchup proof QB1 in fantasy football.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.
