Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
FRIDAY UPDATE: Devonta Freeman (concussion) won't play, so the Falcons offense will need extra help from Ryan. The Falcons triggerman, however, won't have the services of Leonard Hankerson (hamstring), but Ryan is willing to lean on Jacob Tamme as a secondary target when necessary. The Minnesota Vikings have allowed an average of 245.8 passing yards and 1.5 touchdown passes per game during the last month.
Passsing: 272 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 7 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Despite taking a beating behind an offensive line that lost four starters to year-ending injuries by midseason, Ryan closed out 2014 as the seventh-rated fantasy quarterback. The durable pocket passer (87 straight starts) heads into his age-30 season leading an offense that will undergo a major transition. Ryan is expected to throw less in new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's run-heavy West Coast scheme. Ryan's receiver corps also looks shaky behind stud Julio Jones. The once-reliable Roddy White is declining and has been injury prone. Rookie fourth-round selection Justin Hardy and career-backup Leonard Hankerson will compete for Harry Douglas' vacant slot job. Jacob Tamme is only a modest addition. However, Ryan will still end up in some high-scoring contests. An Atlanta defense that finished 27th in points allowed won't improve overnight.

Passing: 1754 Yards, 11 TD, 6 INT.
Rushing: 37 Yards, 0 TD.

Not a Falcons fan (and I see this forum has not been visited much recently), but I think Falcons fans should pound the drums for their old uniforms (early Vick era) and Falcon logo back before this new stadium is completed. That old uniform was ...
