Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
I'm going to be honest, I was very impressed with how Matt Ryan responded in week two after a disappointing outing for the offense in week one. In a tough matchup against the Bucs defense, Ryan completed 76% of his passes for 300 yards and two touchdowns. With that being said, he did also throw three interceptions and fail to crack the top-24 at the QB position. With a very narrow receiving tree in Atlanta - plus his limited mobility - Ryan's unlikely to ever enter into the top-15 conversation for fantasy this season. There are too many younger and more athletic QB options that have a much higher ceiling than Ryan in this Falcons offense. Against the Giants, Ryan should be viewed as a low-end QB2. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Ryan is averaging only 13.33 fantasy points over his first two games, he is a low-end QB2 against the Giants 15th ranked fantasy quarterback defense.
