What You Need to Know:

  • Ryan finished as the QB17 last year, his worst finish since 2009.
  • He finished as a QB1 only 4 times, maxing out as the QB3 twice.
  • Losing Julio Jones (free agency) and Calvin Ridley (only 5 appearances) put the Atlanta offense at a severe disadvantage.
  • Ryan’s 7.1 YPA marked his lowest since 2013. His 20 TDs matched a season-low going back to the 2009 season.
  • His adjusted completion rate and PFF passing grade all fell close to his career averages, though. We’re not worried about a sharp decline here.
  • The Colts traded for Ryan in March, giving them a stable successor to Carson Wentz.
  • Indy’s current pass catching corps is unproven beyond Michael Pittman, an ascending WR1.
  • Alec Pierce arrived in Round 2 of the draft. He brings plus size and speed and showed an ability to win in contested situations. His route running is still raw, though.
  • Parris Campbell projects as the #3. While loaded with ability, he’s played only 15 games in 3 seasons.
  • At TE, Indy lost Jack Doyle to retirement. They’ll roll out a deep, supersized unit that includes Mo Alie-Cox, Kylen Granson and rookie Jelani Woods.
  • In the backfield, Jonathan Taylor returns to ensure this unit is run-first. Indy ranked 28th in pass-rate last year in year 1 under OC Marcus Brady.
  • The 2021 Colts ranked last in situation-neutral pace.
  • Indy’s O-line lost LT Eric Fisher to free agency. Matt Pryor is the likely replacement, and we don’t see much of a drop-off here. There’s continuity elsewhere along the line.
  • Ryan, now 37, has remained durable. He’s missed only 3 games in his 14-year career and played all 17 a year ago.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Despite an advanced age, Ryan remains an above average starting NFL QB.

The fact that he ranked as the QB17 last year — despite an awful supporting cast — should be seen as a positive.

His situation improved a bit with the move to Indy. The issue here is pass volume and the lack of a rushing ceiling. You can safely avoid the veteran as a QB1 target, but he'll be someone to consider as a spot-starter.

Matt Ryan, QB IND

8:34am EDT 6/20/22

Ryan had excellent offseason

Colts QB Matt Ryan impressed coaches, teammates and the media with his play and leadership this offseason. “Matt was unbelievable,” HC Frank Reich said. “Really, A-Z, he did everything right. Just great leadership, great play. I mean, the whole way he took command … I knew he was good, but his accuracy is insane." OC Marcus Brady said Ryan is "damn near a coach on the field." And rookie WR Alec Pierce said, "He could basically run this offense and this team by himself." We'd expect the 14-year veteran to impress in the intangibles department. But, by all accounts, Ryan's arm strength and accuracy were excellent over the past few months. He's still not an exciting fantasy asset in a run-first offense and without rushing upside. But Ryan's arrival could be a boost for the Colts' skill-position players.
