Ryan completed 25-of-46 passes for 280 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Colts. Ryan's 15 throws to Julio Jones accounted for 160 of his passing yards in an otherwise sloppy outing for Atlanta's signal-caller. He now has seven turnovers in the last four weeks after recording only six over the season's first six games, and will need to clean up his game if he wants to succeed against a tough Vikings defense next week. Look for Ryan to shoulder a lot of the offensive load in coming weeks, as star running back Devonta Freeman could miss some time with a concussion.
Ryan completed 30-of-45 passes for 303 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Falcons. Despite being among the league's leaders in passing yardage, Ryan hasn't looked much like a top-tier quarterback as of late. Through nine games this season, Ryan has yet to throw for more than two scores in a game and has been held to one or no touchdowns in five contests. The fact that he has yet to pass for under 250 yards this season makes him a solid start week in and week out, but the fact that head coach Dan Quinn didn't trust his quarterback to go for it on 4th and 1 with three minutes left in the game raises questions as to how much longer fantasy owners should show faith in Ryan.
Ryan completed 37-of-45 passes for 397 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay. He had a fumble during the contest. The 397 yards were Ryan's most since Week 1 of 2014. Another high mark that Ryan's fantasy owners should be concerned about, however, are multi-turnover games. Sunday was Ryan's fourth multi-turnover game of the season after having four such games throughout 2014. Ryan has a lot going for him, including one of the best receivers in the game in Julio Jones and a running game that has brought balance to Atlanta. He is among the top five passers in the league in terms of yardage, but has yet to throw more than two scores in a game in 2015 and his lack of ball security prevents him from moving from good to great.
Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan completed 22 of 38 passes for 251 yards, with a touchdown and an interception in a Sunday defeat of Tennessee. Ryan outplayed Titans fill-in starter Zach Mettenberger just enough to win, but he was far from his best in this one. Between throwing for a season-low number of yards and being intercepted in the end zone in the fourth quarter, Ryan definitely had an afternoon to forget. A home matchup against a struggling Buccaneers defense looms ahead.
Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan completed 24 of 42 passes for 254 yards and rushed three times for 20 yards in Sunday's overtime win over Washington. He also threw two interceptions and lost a fumble while failing to record a touchdown. Matty Ice was far from his best Sunday, and his inability to take care of the football almost led to his team's first loss of the season. The continued emergence of Devonta Freeman as a force to be reckoned with on the ground should open up more space for Ryan, and he still has star wide receiver Julio Jones to rely on in the clutch. That being said, he'll have to put this clunker behind him quickly as the Falcons travel to New Orleans for Thursday Night Football in Week 6.
