High Side: Devin Knotts
Matt Ryan is coming off of a career MVP season as he had his best statistical season in almost every category. This is a big step for Ryan as he is now 32 years old so there is very little concern for a dropoff due to age. Ryan finished as the third ranked quarterback in 2016 and is currently being drafted as the fourth quarterback off the board behind Rodgers, Brees, and Brady. The value you that you can get Ryan at this season is a great one as even though he is the fourth quarterback coming off the board he is often going two rounds later than Brees and three to four rounds later than Rodgers. Brees and Brady both have even the smallest of age concerns which as we have seen from Peyton Manning the quarterback fall off is not gradual in most cases it is a fast decline so Ryan not having that risk may be a reason you want to wait.
