Matt Ryan Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2022

Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

The Falcons have been working specifically on their deep passing game at OTAs. "It's an area where we definitely want to get better and we will," QB Matt Ryan said.  Ryan's 31 completions of 20+ yards and 4 completions of 40+ yards were both 23rd in the NFL last year.  The biggest problem is that the Falcons don't have any real burners at WR.  But we still like Ryan to have a bounce-back year in his 3rd NFL season.

Falcons QB Matt Ryan (toe) was limited in practice on Friday and is listed as "questionable" to face the Bills on Sunday.  He's expected to play but isn't a fantasy option in a tough matchup.

Atlanta QB Matt Ryan (turf toe) participated in practice today on a limited basis. He has been participating in walkthroughs but getting him on the practice field is a big step towards getting him on the field for Sunday’s game against the Jets. Ryan is expected to be a GTD.

Falcons QB Matt Ryan (turf toe) is officially listed as "questionable" for Sunday's game against the Jets.  He was limited in Friday's practice though, so we doubt he'll play.

ESPN's Rachel Nichols reports that Falcons QB Matt Ryan (toe) is active and will start against the Jets today.  The Falcons offense will have its full assortment of starters today.

Falcons QB Matt Ryan (toe) reportedly told GM Thomas Dimitroff that he'll be ready to play next Sunday.  We wouldn't necessarily count on it though.  The team will leave the decision up to its doctors, and they'll be careful with their franchise QB.  Count on QB Chris Redman starting at least 1 more game.

Falcons QB Matt Ryan (toe) did not practice on Wednesday.  The team is calling him a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Saints.  Let's see if he puts any work in on Thursday or Friday.

Falcons QB Matt Ryan (toe) was held out of practice again on Thursday.  He did, however, participate in the walkthrough and has been at team meetings.  He's ready to play on Sunday against the Saints if his toe can hold up.  Consider him a game-time decision.

Falcons QB Matt Ryan (toe) missed practice for the 3rd straight day on Friday.  He participated in the walkthrough, but is unlikely to play on Sunday despite being listed as "questionable."  Look for QB Chris Redman to start against the Saints.

10:21pm EDT 5/3/10

Falcons QB Matt Ryan (toe) is inactive for today's game against the Saints.  QB Chris Redman starts again.

Falcons QB Matt Ryan left in the 1st quarter of Sunday’s game with a toe injury and did not return. He was in a boot on the sidelines for the rest of the game. HC Mike Smith said after the game that they likely won’t know how severe the injury is until the middle of this coming week.

Falcons QB Matt Ryan has been ruled out for Week 13 after being diagnosed with ligament damage in his big toe.  The fact that he was ruled out so early in the week is bad news.  He's going to visit with a foot specialist later this week, so we should know more then.  For now, hang on to him.  But don't be surprised if he's out at least 2-3 weeks.  QB Chris Redman will start in the meantime but is only worth a pickup as depth for the fantasy playoffs.

According to NFL.com, Falcons QB Matt Ryan (toe) has been ruled inactive this week for Atlanta's game against Philadelphia.  Starting in his place will be Chris Redman.  Redman is a low-upside fantasy start at best.

Falcons QB Matt Ryan suffered a toe injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Bucs.  The team is calling his return questionable.

Falcons QB Matt Ryan won the 2008 AP Offensive Rookie of the Year award. He's the 3rd QB in 5 years to win it, after Ben Roethlisberger & Vince Young. Ryan threw for 3,440 yards, 16 TDs and only 11 INTs. He also ran in a TD. Atlanta went from 4-12 to 11-5 and Ryan was a huge part of that turnaround. He got 44 of 50 votes, followed by Titans RB Chris Johnson (3), Broncos LT Ryan Clady (2) and Bears RB Matt Forte (1).

The Falcons O-line, coached by Paul Bodreau, set a new team record by allowing only 17 sacks. The previous mark was 25 set in 1982. Before the season the expectations were low across the board. Falcons beat writer Terrence Moore even said this on August 31: "What the Falcons have now on their offensive line is pretty scary."

Falcons LT Sam Baker, their 1st-round pick from USC, has a nagging hip problem and went to see a specialist yesterday. Baker has played well when he's been out there, one of the reasons Matt Ryan has only been sacked 9 times. The veteran Todd Weiner will start in Baker's place this week -- and they just signed OT Wayne Gandy too.

Bears CB Nathan Vasher is very questionable after getting a pin inserted into his surgically-repaired wrist. If he can't go at Atlanta, Corey Graham will start. Graham's a 5th-round pick out of New Hampshire in 2007.

Falcons LT Sam Baker left Sunday's game at Tampa after "taking a blow to the head" per the Journal Constitution. "He just got his bell rung," said HC Mike Smith. Baker is their 1st-round draft pick from USC. He should be fine.

Falcons rookie QB Matt Ryan started tonight's preseason game against the Titans. He completed 15 of 21 passes for 102 yards. He threw a 1-yard TD pass to fellow rookie WR Harry Douglas. Most importantly, Ryan did not turn the ball over once. He looks locked-in to start week 1.
