Ryan completed 24 of 35 pass attempts for 248 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Dolphins. Ryan threw a 40-yard touchdown strike to Marvin Hall in the first quarter, but he struggled to make throws downfield after that point en route to a pedestrian 7.1 yards per attempt. His lone interception proved to be quite costly, coming on the final drive of the game as he looked to move his team into the red zone to potentially tie the score. Ryan's form in 2017 has been a far cry from his performance a year ago, with a substandard 6:6 TD:INT and just one game with over 300 yards passing to his name. He will look to emerge from his early-season funk next week against the Patriots.
Ryan completed 24 of 42 passes for 242 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions while adding an eight-yard rush and losing a fumble in Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Bills. The man nicknamed Matty Ice has looked ice cold in important late-game situations of late. Ryan gave up the go-ahead score after coughing up the ball on a sack in the third quarter, but tied it up with a three-yard touchdown pass to Justin Hardy in the fourth. Later, Ryan had two tries to complete the comeback after Buffalo nudged ahead with a field goal on the ensuing possession, but those drives ended with an interception and a turnover on downs. Wide receivers Julio Jones (hip) and Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) left this one early, but next week's bye should allow Ryan's top weapons to get healthy by the time Miami comes to town for Week 6.
Ryan completed 24 of 35 passes for 294 yards, two scores, and three interceptions in Sunday's 30-26 win over Detroit. Two of Ryan's interceptions came in the second half while Atlanta was trying to stave off a Detroit comeback. Through three games under new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian, Ryan's 289 yards per game and 68.8 percent completion rate are both impressive, but behind last year's MVP totals and Sunday's game throws Ryan's touchdown:interception ratio to a mediocre 4:3. It is worth remembering that Ryan took some lumps before finding success when former coordinator Kyle Shanahan came to town in 2015, so some mild struggles should be expected. Fortunately, Sarkisian maintaining much of last year's scheme should abridge the kinds of dry spells Ryan experienced early under Shanahan in their first year together.
Ryan completed 19 of 28 passes for 252 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 34-23 victory over the Packers. He added eight rushing yards on one carry. Ryan had no problem exposing a revamped Packers defense that shut down the Seahawks in Week 1, leading his team to three touchdowns and a field goal on six drives before halftime. However, the reigning MVP took his foot off the gas pedal thereafter once the Falcons defense seemingly put the game away with a score of their own to open the second half. Fortunately for fantasy owners, another favorable matchup awaits in Week 3, as Atlanta travels to the indoor confines of Ford Field to take on Detroit.
Ryan completed 21 of 30 pass attempts for 321 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-17 win over the Bears. Ryan ran the offense efficiently and posted a healthy 10.7 yards per attempt, thanks in large part to an 88-yard touchdown connection with Austin Hooper. He didn't get much help from the running game, which posted a lackluster 2.8 yards per attempt, but he was able to do just enough to pull off the road victory. Ryan is in line for another strong season after an excellent 2016 campaign and will face a seemingly inviting matchup with the Packers in Week 2.
