Summary

Matt Ryan enters his 13th season as the Falcons starting quarterback, missing a mere three games over the span. Ryan has oscillated between decent and great over the past four seasons, including two years of at least 35 touchdowns and seven interceptions in each of his two peaks. Ryan led the NFL in completions in 2019, largely due to a struggling run game and a team rarely salting away a sturdy lead. In terms of efficiency, 2019 was arguably Ryan's weakest season in at least five years. Ryan adds some mobility, averaging more than 120 yards per season over the last four, but is one of the lower-volume rushers at the position in the NFL. Ryan's weapons are improved from a year ago with Todd Gurley a significant upgrade over an eroding Devonta Freeman in the backfield and Hayden Hurst acquired in a trade from Baltimore to replicate the tight end role vacated by Austin Hooper.
