Shark Bites

Falcons QB Matt Ryan (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Seahawks. He returned to practice on Friday, and HC Dan Quinn said they'll see how the ankle responds and make a decision on Ryan's status Saturday. Check back then for another update. QB Matt Schaub will draw the start if Ryan is out.

Colts beat writer Jake Arthur calls interior O-line depth one of the team’s biggest holes. Looking across the O-line, Indy’s lost 2,242 snaps with the offseason departures of LT Eric Fisher and OGs Mark Glowinski and Chris Reed. We’re not concerned for Matt Ryan or Jonathan Taylor, as the Colts return an excellent trio of OG Quenton Nelson, C Ryan Kelly and RT Braden Smith. This O-line is simply a unit to monitor going forward.

After acquiring QB Matt Ryan via trade Monday, the Colts are restructuring the veteran's contract. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the altered deal "locks him in at two years and $53.9 million." For fantasy football purposes, that means we should expect Ryan to be Indy's starter through the coming season and 2023, at least.

The Falcons are sending QB Matt Ryan to the Colts for a 3rd-round pick in this year's NFL Draft. That lands Ryan in 1 of the league's more run-leaning offense and with a pass-catching corps that doesn't boast much proven talent beyond WR Michael Pittman. We'll see what else the Colts add to that group. Ryan hasn't been terrific lately, but he marks a lateral move -- at worst -- from Carson Wentz for Pittman and the Colts' other pass-catchers. Ryan brings more consistent accuracy, which could boost Pittman's efficiency. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that the Falcons are now expected to pursue QB Marcus Mariota. The former Raider would land in an even more barren pass offense. We'll assess that situation further once it comes to fruition.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that "if (Matt) Ryan is traded, it'll almost certainly be Indy." It doesn't sound like a move is imminent, and it's important to note that Ryan still might not move. But keep this report in mind if you're jumping into live best-ball drafts today. We'll see what Atlanta's replacement plan would be if Ryan leaves and where the Colts would turn if a deal does not happen.

The forecast for tonight's Falcons-Panthers game calls for a 40% chance of rain with winds of 10-20 mph and gusts up to 25 mph. That's not quite enough wind for us to adjust our projections for this game. But you might use the weather as a tie-breaker if deciding between 2 similarly ranked players.
