Tony Gonzalez: Matt Ryan not an elite quarterback yet
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Retired Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez told ESPN The Magazine that quarterback Matt Ryan is not an elite quarterback. "Matt's an excellent quarterback," Gonzalez said, "But he's not elite. He's this close. He'll get there, but he has some learning to do."

Ryan is coming off a down year in which he threw 26 touchdown passes and committed 21 turnovers. He'll benefit from a healthy Julio Jones in 2014.

Matt Ryan compiles colossal home-road split
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Most quarterbacks play better at home, but the Falcons' Matt Ryan produced a massive home-road split this season. In the Georgia Dome, Ryan completed 73 percent of his throws for 2,341 yards and 13 touchdowns against three interceptions. 

On the road, Ryan hit 62 percent of his throws for 2,174 yards and 13 touchdowns -- against 14 interceptions. Ryan had a 102.6 passer rating at home, 77.0 on the road.

Ryan's overall numbers should improve next season, assuming No. 1 receiver Julio Jones returns healthy.

Matt Ryan ends season with another loss
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had a season to forget in 2013, and he ended the year with another loss against the Panthers at home. 

Ryan played well with 28 of 40 passing for 280 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. It gave him back-to-back games with at least 280 passing yards and two touchdowns for the first time since Week 7.

The Falcons will come back in 2014 with the chance to be more competitive after this 4-12 campaign. Ryan will lose Tony Gonzalez to retirement, but he will get Julio Jones (foot) back at 100 percent.

It should be a bounce-back season for Ryan in 2014, but this 2013 year was disappointing for Atlanta, which came into the year with Super Bowl aspirations.

Is this another good week for Matt Ryan?
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan heads into the season finale against the Panthers hoping to play well for the second week in a row after a strong outing at San Francisco in Week 16. We're not confident he can do it again, however.

Ryan reminded us all how good he can be with his performance against the 49ers. He had 348 passing yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions (one was tipped for the pick-six and the other was on a Hail Mary). But that was the first time we’ve seen that quarterback since Julio Jones went down.

It’s nice to have Roddy White back at 100 percent, and Tony Gonzalez is playing (potentially) his final game. But the Panthers also have a lot at stake with the playoffs and limited Ryan to eight Fantasy points in Week 9.

Only one quarterback – Drew Brees at home – scored more than 19 Fantasy points against Carolina, and Ryan should struggle this week. We would only start him in two-quarterback leagues in this final scoring period.

Matt Ryan throws for 348 yards but makes critical mistake
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan nearly led his undermanned team to a big upset Monday night, hitting 37 of 48 throws for 348 yards and two touchdowns. But he took an unnecessary risk that led to San Francisco's clinching touchdown.

With just over a minute left and Atlanta in position to tie with a field goal, Ryan threw to a covered Harry Douglas and the ball got knocked up in the air. Linebacker NaVorro Bowman caught the ricochet and returned it 89 yards for a touchdown. Ryan's Hail Mary on the final play also was intercepted.

Ryan targeted Roddy White 15 times and they connected 12 times for 141 yards. Ryan led White perfectly on a 39-yard touchdown. He also found tight end Tony Gonzalez for a 2-yard score.

Having accounted for 24 touchdowns and 20 turnovers, Ryan plays Carolina in the season finale.
