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. Now-former Falcon Roddy White was running on fumes. Now-former Falcon 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 whenever possible. Jones and Freeman (73 catches in 2015) both return, but Ryan's receiver corps remains surprisingly thin despite his struggles last year. 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: 4125 Yards, 31 TD, 14 INT.
Rushing: 95 Yards, 2 TD.
