    Falcons' Matt Ryan: Struggles in loss to Vikings

    Ryan completed 22 of 31 passes for 230 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. Ryan turned the ball over multiple times for the second straight week, and he recorded his lowest yardage output of the season. The Falcons have now lost four consecutive games and have averaged just 17 points per game during that span. Ryan and company will look to get back on track in Week 13, when they travel to take on the Buccaneers.

    Falcons' Matt Ryan: Throws three touchdowns in loss

    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.

    Falcons' Matt Ryan: Tops 300 yards against the 49ers

    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.

    Falcons' Matt Ryan: Throws for 397 yards against Tampa Bay

    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 QB Matt Ryan sloppy in low-scoring win

    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 QB Matt Ryan turns it over three times in Week 5 victory

    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.

    Falcons QB Matt Ryan throws for 256 yards, TD in win

    Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan completed 19 of 27 passes for 256 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 48-21 shellacking of the Texans. Ryan took a back seat to Devonta Freeman and the Falcons running game, but delivered a mistake-free performance in the win. His usual chemistry with receiver Julio Jones wasn't on display in this one due to a lack of volume, but Ryan has shown that he has the ability to deliver massive performances with his arm when called upon to do so. The emergence of Leonard Hankerson as a viable option alongside Jones should help offset Roddy White's demise moving forward as far as Ryan's receiving options are concerned.

    WR Roddy White remains invisible in Falcons offense Sunday

    Struggling Falcons wide receiver Roddy White recorded just two catches for eight yards on four targets Sunday against Houston. White and fellow receiver Julio Jones took a back seat as the Falcons did most of their damage on the ground. The favorite target of quarterback Matt Ryan in this one was Leonard Hankerson, and White's utter inability to contribute anything of substance over the last three weeks has got to be very troubling for owners. With Jones usually dominating the touches at wide receiver, there won't be enough to go around for White if he continues to get outplayed by Hankerson.

    Falcons QB Matt Ryan throws two TDs in Week 3 win

    Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan completed 24 of 36 passes for 285 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's win over Dallas. Ryan entered Week 3 ranked third in the league in passing yards and continued humming on Sunday. Ryan has the benefit of throwing to the monstrous Julio Jones and could make himself a top-notch fantasy option just by tossing the ball up and letting Jones do his thing. Another factor working in Ryan's favor is the inside-outside zone running game offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan has installed. With many of Ryan's 2014 struggles attributable to a weak offensive line and running game, expect Ryan to see cleaner pockets with opposing defenses unable to tee off.

    Falcons QB Matt Ryan throws for 363 yards in win over Giants

    Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan connected on 30 of 46 passes for 363 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's game against the Giants. With running back Tevin Coleman going down due to a rib injury, the Falcons placed more emphasis on the passing game and Matty Ice proved to be up to the task. Just four Falcons caught more than one pass, as Roddy White was held without a catch, but the 363 yards represent Ryan's third-highest total since the start of 2014. It remains to be seen how long Coleman will be sidelined, but the Falcons could continue this trend until he returns as they seem uncomfortable to give Devonta Freeman a full complement of carries. Ryan and company will travel to take on the Cowboys in Week 3.
