Recent Player News

  • Posted: 5/24/2019 6:19pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan said he is excited to be reunited with offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter. 'We've come up with some really good stuff,' Ryan said.

    Huddle Up: Ryan is coming off a career-high 35 touchdown passes last season, and Koetter has engineered some potent passing attacks. With plenty of weapons around him, Ryan is a safe bet to deliver QB1 production again in 2019.

  • Posted: 4/30/2019 9:30am ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan was sacked or hit a career-high 76 times last season, so the Falcons made his protection a draft priority, selecting a pair of offensive linemen in the first round. 'We knew what we needed to do this offseason and that was to continue to fortify that line and make sure that we were protecting Matt,' Atlanta GM Thomas Dimitroff said. 'And we weren't going to run into what we ran into last year.'

    Huddle Up: Despite the protection problems, Ryan still threw for 4,924 yards and a career-high 35 TDs to finish third among fantasy QBs and should be valued as a back-end QB1 in drafts this offseason.

  • Posted: 1/31/2019 5:46pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (wrist) said he skipped the Pro Bowl because of a wrist injury he dealt with during the final game of the regular season. Ryan said his wrist is no longer a concern.

    Huddle Up: Ryan has thrown for at least 4,000 yards in each of the last eight seasons and has thrown at least 35 touchdowns in two of the last three seasons. He should have a good receiving corps to work with next season and can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

  • Posted: 12/30/2018 5:48pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 31 of his 44 passes for 378 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 34-32 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 17.

    Huddle Up: The Falcons disappointed as a team, but Ryan tossed 35 touchdowns and nearly reached 5,000 yards. With solid weapons to throw to, another year of QB1 production should be on tap in 2019.

  • Posted: 12/23/2018 5:49pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 15-of-26 passes for 239 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Ryan hooked up with each of his top three receivers, Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Calvin Ridley for a score each. He'll try to finish the regular season on a high note in Week 17 in Tampa.

  • Posted: 12/16/2018 4:06pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan threw for 231 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions on 22-for-36 passing against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15. He added 18 yards and a rushing touchdown.

    Huddle Up: While it wasn't a monster effort in the fantasy semi-finals, it was good enough for one of the best performances of the week given how poor the position played across the board. Ryan faces Carolina in Week 16, an opponent he shredded for 35.4 fantasy points earlier in the season. Lock him into lineups for championship week.

  • Posted: 12/9/2018 2:27pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 28-of-42 passes for 262 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 14 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: It was Matty Ice's first game with three or more TDs since Nov. 4 in Washington. Overall he has managed 28 touchdowns and just six interceptions, having another decent year as a low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues. The Falcons face the Cardinals in Week 15.

  • Posted: 12/5/2018 6:10pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has posted his highest passer rating (106.3) against the Green Bay Packers compared to any other opponent whom he's faced more than three times in his career. In eight meetings (including playoffs), Ryan has completed 67.4 percent of his passes to go with 2,071 yards, 18 touchdowns and only five interceptions. Ryan draws them in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: The former MVP award winner is coming off probably his weakest outing this season but based on his history opposite Green Bay, he'll be in position to bounce back from that right away. Cold temperatures are expected but Ryan has thrived in Lambeau Field's frigid climate multiple times before. Thus, he can still be trusted as a QB1 this week.

  • Posted: 12/4/2018 10:48am ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has been sacked 36 times this season and is on pace for a career-high 48. 'Well, No. 1, I'm concerned about it because if we're not protecting him in the way that we can, then that gets hard,' Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. 'And there (are) some games that the score's out of whack and it turns into a dropback game where there's going to be more chances for a defense to go after him.'

    Huddle Up: Ryan was sacked three times and hit five more times as he threw for a season-low 131 yards in the Week 13 home loss to the Ravens. And with Atlanta 4-8 and essentially out of playoff contention, there is concern, Ryan could be shut down early to preserve the 33-year-old quarterback, so it's definitely a situation to monitor if you're counting on Ryan as your main QB in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Posted: 11/22/2018 8:39pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 35 of 47 yards for 377 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 31-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Ryan piled up yards in the second half after the Falcons fell behind, and while Atlanta's record isn't pretty, he continues to put up QB1 numbers for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 11/18/2018 1:56pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 24-for-34 for 291 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Ryan has thrown at least 275 yards in each of the last eight games but was held to one passing touchdown in two of the last four games. He will be facing the New Orleans Saints next week and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback because it should be a high-scoring game.

  • Posted: 11/18/2018 9:55am ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has thrown 14 of his 21 touchdown passes at home this season.

    Huddle Up: Ryan faces a tougher-than-usual test today in the Cowboys, who have allowed the 10th-fewest fantasy points to opposing QBs, but still roll with Ryan with confidence.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 12:58pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 38-for-52 for 330 yards and two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Ryan has thrown for at least 300 yards in six of the last seven games and has thrown 10 touchdowns in the last four games. He can be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback next week against the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 5:11pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 26 of 38 passes for 350 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in a 38-14 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Ryan reached 350 yards for the third straight game, and he has tossed at least three scores in three of his last five. He's playing at an MVP level once again and is a weekly QB1 option.

  • Posted: 10/22/2018 8:38pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 31-of-39 passes for 379 yards, one touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 7 game against the New York Giants on Monday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: Ryan was very careful with the ball, throwing plenty of short-yardage, low-risk routes, although he did air it out for a 47-yard touchdown to Marvin Hall to open the scoring midway through the second quarter. Ryan continues to be a solid fantasy option, although you'll need to make alternate plans with a bye coming in Week 8 for the Falcons.

  • Posted: 10/16/2018 9:42am ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has completed 18-of-20 red-zone passing attempts since Week 2 which is tops among all 29 quarterbacks with more than 10 red-zone passing attempts.

    Huddle Up: Ryan and the Falcons have certainly responded after their 2017 red-zone struggles carried over into the Week 1 loss in Philly, and partly as a result, Ryan trails only the Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes in total QB fantasy points on the season. Now, if only they could find a way to include Julio Jones in the mix ...

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 7:41pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 31 of his 41 passes for 354 yards and three touchdowns in a 34-29 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Ryan continues to look a lot like the player who took home MVP honors in 2016, and he needs to be treated as a QB1 until further notice.

  • Posted: 10/8/2018 12:52pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (foot) underwent an X-ray on his foot following Week 5's loss, but head coach Dan Quinn said Ryan will play in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: While he didn't necessarily play poorly, Ryan disappointed in what was supposed to be a shootout with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Look for him to rebound in a big way in a tasty matchup at home versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 1:17pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 26-for-38 for 285 yards and one touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Ryan has thrown for at least 270 yards in each of the last four games and has 10 touchdowns during that span. He will be facing Tampa Bay Buccaneers next week and should be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 2:50pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Matt Ryan completed 29-of-39 passes for 419 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 4 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Ryan has stepped up his game over the past two starts, totaling eight TD passes. He has also managed 10 TD strikes with just one INT over his past three while completing at least 74.3 percent of his attempts in each outing. With Devonta Freeman (knee) on the shelf, the Atlanta offense has been more pass heavy, and Ryan has really started to jell nicely with Calvin Ridley. The Falcons travel to meet the Steelers in Week 5.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 4:26pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 26-of-35 passes for 374 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 3 loss against the New Orleans Saints. The five TDs were a career high and he tied the franchise record set by QB Wade Wilson back in Week 15 of the 1992 season.

    Huddle Up: After laying an egg in Week 1 with no TDs, Ryan has nine total touchdowns over the past two games. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 4 against the Cincinnati Bengals, a defense which allowed four total touches to Cam Newton on Sunday.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 2:49pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 23-of-28 passes for 272 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 2 win against Carolina Panthers while posting two rushing scores, posting his 100th career NFL win.

    Huddle Up: It was the first time Ryan has had two rushing touchdowns in the same game since he was in college. He'll look to stay hot in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints in a potential shootout. He remains a solid low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/6/2018 9:33pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 21 of 43 passes for 251 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Sept. 6. Ryan tossed one interception and did not account for a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Ryan was OK -- well, as long as he was targeting Julio Jones -- but the Falcons once again struggled in the red zone, which was a theme for the club under Steve Sarkisian last year. In 17 regular season games under Sarkisian, Ryan has now thrown 20 TDs against 13 INTs, which is a far cry from his performance when Kyle Shanahan was calling the shots. The former MVP is a solid QB2 in fantasy circles until further notice.

  • Posted: 8/17/2018 6:59pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed five of his seven passes for 90 yards and a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs in the preseason Friday, Aug. 17.

    Huddle Up: Ryan probably isn't going to perform at the level he did in 2016 when he took home MVP honors, but he is a safe bet for 4,000-plus yards and 20-plus touchdowns. He's a dependable, low-end QB1.

  • Posted: 8/10/2018 7:11pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan played one drive against the New York Jets in the preseason opener Friday, Aug. 10, losing three yards on his only pass attempt.

    Huddle Up: At this point in his career, Ryan's biggest goal in the preseason is to avoid any injuries. He's a safe bet for 4,000-plus yards and 20-plus touchdowns and is no worse than a high-end QB2.
