Summary

Matt Ryan improved steadily as a passer from 2010-2012, going from 3,705 yards passing with 28 TDs and just nine interceptions thrown during 2010 to 4,177 yards passing, 29 TDs and 12 interceptions thrown in 2011 and finishing 2012 with 4,719 yards passing, with 32 TDs and 14 interceptions thrown. However, during the 2013 season Ryan hit a plateau in his numbers (even though he attempted a career-high 651 passes and completed a career-high 439 passes) with 439/651 for 4,515 yards passing, 26 TDs and 17 interceptions. His yardage and TD numbers dipped enough to bounce him down to #10 among all fantasy passers during 2013 after finishing sixth among all fantasy quarterbacks in 2012. Last year, Ryan's final numbers rebounded to 415/628 for 4,694 yards, 28 TDs and 14 interceptions thrown, landing him at #7 among all fantasy quarterbacks for the 2014 season. Ryan's been among the top-ten fantasy quarterbacks for five straight seasons, playing in all 16 games for the past five years. Ryan's durability hasn't been an issue at all thus far in his pro career. Ryan is just now entering the prime years of his career at 30 years of age. He is the linchpin of the Atlanta offense - Ryan handled 628 of the 632 passes attempted during regular-season by the Falcons last year. (May 14)
