Summary

Matt Ryan enjoyed a bounce-back season in 2018 under the coordination of Dirk Koetter, setting a career high in yards (4,923) and his second-most touchdowns (35) and yards-per-attempt (8.1). Ryan's three rushing touchdowns helped fuel his best overall production in his 11-year career. Ryan was one of the best quarterbacks under pressure in 2018. Outside of blips in the radar, notably 2013 and 2015, Ryan has been a stalwart among the NFL's upper echelon of quarterbacks. With Julio Jones continuing his strong run of production, Mohamed Sanu an underrated option, and 2018 first-round pick Calvin Ridley entering Year 2 with Devonta Freeman returning from injury, Atlanta's passing game is one of the easier to project with a high-floor and ceiling combination for 2019.
