Fantasy Analysis
Week 15 Projections
He hasn't been playing well during the month, but Ryan clearly benefited from garbage-time production in two of his last three starts. What has been a solid Arizona Cardinals pass defense has slipped recently. During the last month, the Cardinals have allowed the 12th-most passing yards and the seventh-most touchdown strikes. Even though most of the numbers point to the Atlanta Falcons using a more balanced attack against an Arizona defense that has been soft versus the run, Ryan should throw enough to manufacture a solid fantasy outing.
Passsing: 265 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 8 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Coming off a 2016 MVP campaign and operating in an Atlanta Falcons offense under the direction of rookie NFL play-caller Steve Sarkisian, Ryan regressed as many had predicted. His drop from third to 14th in fantasy quarterback scoring, however, was worse than expected. Although Ryan's pass attempts (10th most in the league) dipped by just five, he connected on the fewest number of throws since his sophomore 2009 season. While Ryan topped the 4,000-yard mark for the seventh straight year, he tossed the second-lowest number of scoring strikes since his rookie campaign. The pocket passer also threw for multiple touchdowns in only five of 16 contests, which entrenched him as a low-upside No. 2 fantasy quarterback for all of 2017. Ryan looks like a rebound candidate. The 33-year-old triggerman struggled during his first season (2015) under Kyle Shanahan (career-worst 3.4 percent touchdown rate) but bounced back the following year. Ryan enters Year 2 under Sarkisian coming off a 3.8 percent touchdown rate, and it's reasonable to assume that he needed a full season to get on the same page with Sarkisian, too. Top weapons Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu, Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman are all returning, and versatile do-it-all rookie Calvin Ridley will see Week 1 action as the new third wideout. Ryan's 20 touchdown passes from 2017 was an abnormally low number. Since he has averaged 26 scoring strikes per season, Ryan's biggest statistical jump should come in the scoring department.

Passing: 864 Yards, 7 TD, 2 INT.
Rushing: 23 Yards, 0 TD.
