From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 19): Ryan got Julio Jones back in Week 6 and his fantasy fortune rose with the return of his #1 receiver. The Vikings defense looked very beatable this week after holding Russell Wilson down for most of the game last week. Ryan is a strong QB1 start this week against the Lions defense that wasn't really tested by Gardner Minshew.

Latest News

Falcons | Four touchdowns for Matt Ryan (Sun Oct 18, 05:31 PM) - Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 30-for-40 for 371 yards and four touchdowns against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6.

Our View: Ryan had a massive game against a Vikings defense that had slowed down Russell Wilson for most of the game last week. Having Julio Jones back was all of the difference against Minnesota. Ryan should be considered a solid QB1 start at home against the Lions next week.

Falcons | Owner doesn't commit to Matt Ryan (Tue Oct 13, 01:43 AM) - Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has a fan in team owner Arthur Blank, although the owner said Monday, Oct. 12 that Ryan's future depends on the team's new head coach and general manager and what Ryan wants to do moving forward.

Our View: That may be painful for some Falcons fans out there, but this is the correct approach for Blank. A new head coach and GM may not want to be saddled with a veteran quarterback. Ryan could be considered a 'bridge' quarterback to the next guy for the new regime. He has a cap number of $40.9 million next year, along with a salary of $23 million...so getting rid of him is going to be complicated. Stay tuned.
