Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 Rivers has been passing the ball a ton all season and has five of six strong performances as a result. This week is a tough enough matchup that he isn't expected to be a QB1. With that said, you can justify streaming him for lack of better options.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Ryan has been an incredible disappointment this season, with just six touchdowns against six interceptions. But this weekend's matchup is about as good as it gets. The Patriots have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks by a wide margin, and have allowed the most passing yards and most passing touchdowns in the league. Ryan has undoubtedly been stewing over the Super Bowl since February, and the Falcons will surely try to come out and "avenge" the loss. Look for Ryan to finish as a top-five quarterback this week. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Patriots are 32nd against fantasy quarterbacks, look for Ryan to have a monster week on the road. Rivers had 3 touchdown passes against Denver in the opener, but Denver is 12th against fantasy running backs and he is a low-upside QB2 this week.
