Season Projections
The Falcons usually lived and died with Ryan's arm last season because their offense couldn't run the football consistently and their injury-depleted defense couldn't stop anybody. Thanks to high-volume throwing, Matty Ice finished third in the NFL in passing yards and third in touchdown strikes with numbers that virtually mirrored his career-best MVP stats from 2016. Ryan also ranked fourth in completions and third in attempts. A classic pocket passer, Ryan also tallied a fluky career-high three rushing touchdowns, which helped him finish as the fantasy QB2. The 34-year-old triggerman has thrown for at least 4,500 yards and 30 touchdowns in five of his last six campaigns. Ryan's top playmakers - Julio Jones, rising star Calvin Ridley, Mohamed Sanu and Austin Hooper - all return healthy for 2019. Historically, Ryan has struggled during his first season in a new scheme, but Dirk Koetter directed Atlanta's offense from 2012 through 2014, which is why the the team expects instant success from a Ryan/Koetter reunion. Ryan averaged 4,643-29-15 per season under Koetter, but a dip in Matty Ice's production seems likely. The Falcons are determined to squeeze better production out of their ground game with a healthy Devonta Freeman back in the fold and better play from a healthier defense, which, in theory, means less throwing by Ryan. He's still a solid starting option. If the rushing attack and/or defense struggle again, the team will need more throwing from Ryan to remain competitive. By the way, the uncommonly durable signal caller is riding a streak of 156 consecutive starts.

Passing: 4274 Yards, 30 TD, 8 INT.
Rushing: 119 Yards, 3 TD.
