Falcons' Matt Ryan: Stays hot as Falcons win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan completed 31 of 41 passes for 354 yards and three touchdowns as the Falcons defeated Tampa Bay 34-29 on Sunday.

So long as the Falcons can stay in playoff contention with Ryan playing at this level, the 10-year veteran is going to mount a legitimate argument to earn his second MVP award in three seasons. Ryan has thrown for 250-plus yards in every game this season, with at least 354 passing yards in three of the past four contests. He also currently has more touchdowns in a four-week span (12) than he's had during any stretch since Week 14-Week 17 of his 2016 MVP campaign. Next come the Giants and a secondary that Carson Wentz recently tore up for 278 passing yards and three touchdowns.

Falcons' Matt Ryan: Puts foot injury behind him
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan (foot) wasn't listed on the Falcons' injury report Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

After he was seen taking snaps and throwing passes at Wednesday's practice, Ryan held court with the media, telling D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution his foot was "fine." Clearly, the Falcons' medical and training staffs agree with the quarterback's own assessment. Ryan will now turn his sights on Sunday's matchup with the Buccaneers, who have allowed 370 yards passing per game and 13 touchdowns versus just a single interception this season.

Falcons' Matt Ryan: Puts in work at practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan (foot) was present at Wednesday's practice, taking snaps and throwing passes, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

In the aftermath of Sunday's 41-17 loss in Pittsburgh, Ryan was seen leaving the X-ray room at Heinz Field, where scans returned negative regarding any fractures in his foot. While practicing Wednesday, Ryan appeared to display deft footwork, but the first Week 6 injury report will reveal whether he was a limited or full participant.

Falcons' Matt Ryan: Avoids serious foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan had X-rays on his foot after Sunday's 41-17 loss to Pittsburgh, with results coming back negative for any fractures, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Ryan was pulled in favor of Matt Schaub late in the fourth quarter once the game was well out of reach. Coach Dan Quinn said the 33-year-old quarterback will be fine for a favorable Week 6 home matchup with Tampa Bay, but it won't come as any surprise if Ryan shows up on the injury report after the Falcons return to practice Wednesday.

Falcons' Matt Ryan: Under siege in the pocket
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan completed 26 of 38 passes for 285 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 41-17 loss to Pittsburgh.

Ryan was sacked on six occasions by four different defenders, as the Falcons offensive line struggled mightily in trying to contain the Steelers' front seven. Nevertheless Atlanta continues to air it out, with its veteran quarterback averaging 36.6 attempts and 320 passing yards per game thus far this season. Week 6 brings a favorable matchup against a Buccaneers defense that entered Week 5 allowing an average passer rating of 130.5 (NFL-high).
