Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan finished 24-of-36 for 273 yards and four touchdowns in Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys. Ryan added four carries for 16 more yards.
Huddle Up: Ryan had two touchdown passes less than halfway through the first quarter and three TDs midway through the second, but Atlanta still found a way to blow a 15-point lead with five minutes remaining. The 35-year-old quarterback may have the best environment of any fantasy signal-caller at the moment, possessing one of the finest supporting casts in the league and being attached to a horrendous defense. Ryan should be considered a strong fantasy QB1 in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears.

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan went 25-of-39 for 210 yards and two touchdowns in Week 15 against the San Francisco 49ers. He also ran five times for 27 yards.
Huddle Up: Ryan was good when he needed to be, finding Julio Jones three times on the game-winning drive - including a 5-yard dart to Jones with two seconds remaining to put Atlanta ahead for good. Fantasy owners who were forced to start him for one reason or the other have to be mostly happy with the effort as San Francisco has been one of the better defenses against quarterbacks the season. Ryan should be able to return to QB1 status in Week 16 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
