The easiest rating is 1 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the most difficult rating is 10 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Fantasy Analysis
Week 20 Projections
Even if Julio Jones (toe) is somewhat limited (last week the injured wideout amassed a 6-67-1 receiving line despite playing a season-low 58.3 percent of the snaps), Ryan is still a strong start in a matchup that has 'shootout' written all over it. In his last four games, the MVP candidate, who has plenty of solid receiving options in addition to Jones, averaged 308 passing yards and 2.8 scoring strikes per contest. The Green Bay Packers' banged-up secondary closed out the regular season allowing the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Last week Green Bay surrendered 302 passing yards and three touchdown passes to Dak Prescott (Cowboys). Ryan, back in Week 8, torched the Packers for 288 passing yards and three touchdown tosses at the Georgia Dome. Start him with confidence.
Passsing: 324 Yards, 2 TD, 0 INT.
Rushing: 5 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
It's common knowledge that Ryan struggled during his first season in offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's West Coast scheme. Ryan tossed his lowest number of touchdowns since his rookie season and racked up multiple scoring strikes in just six contests. The 16 interceptions came within one pick of his career-worst total, and Ryan lost a career-high five fumbles. Julio Jones was a nightmare to defend as usual, but Ryan didn't get much help from anyone else as Roddy White was running on fumes and Leonard Hankerson and Jacob Tamme rarely impressed. While the 31-year-old Ryan should play better after a one-year adjustment period, a huge uptick in his production is very unlikely. Everybody knows Atlanta now prefers to operate a run-heavy attack led by Devonta Freeman (73 catches in 2015) whenever possible. Ryan's receiver corps remains surprisingly thin behind Jones. New No. 2 wideout Mohamed Sanu has never caught more than 56 balls in a season. Jones will command a ton of extra defensive attention, but Sanu has frequently struggled in one-on-one coverage throughout his career. Ryan clearly misses security blanket Tony Gonzalez, and Tamme has been a weak substitute. Atlanta has penciled in Justin Hardy as the No. 3 wideout, but it's doubtful that he'll make a big impact after playing so sparingly last season. It's going to take more than Sanu and Hardy to return Ryan to the ranks of the top-10 fantasy passers.

Passing: 291 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 7 Yards, 0 TD.
