Colts QB Matt Ryan followed a shaky 1st outing with an even worse Week 2. He took 5 sacks and tossed 3 INTs in Sunday's 24-0 defeat at the hands of Jacksonville. Ryan completed just 16 of his 30 passes for only 195 yards. He was missing lead WR Michael Pittman and WR Alec Pierce against Jacksonville, which didn't help. WR Ashton Dulin led the team in targets (7), receptions (5) and receiving yards (79). Dezmon Patmon (6) and Nyheim Hines (5) were the only others to see more than 3 targets. Parris Campbell, meanwhile, drew just 2 looks and finished without a catch. He also doesn't need to remain on fantasy football rosters.
The Colts released QB Matt Ryan. The no-brainer move saves $17.2 million against the 2023 salary cap. Ryan has had a strong NFL career, but the soon-to-be 38-year-old's tank is clearly empty. He mustered just 6.6 yards per attempt with 14 TDs vs. 13 INTs in 12 outings this past season. We'll see if Ryan snags a backup job elsewhere, but he's well off the fantasy radar. The Colts are left with QBs Nick Foles and Sam Ehlinger but figure to be eyeing the position with the 4th overall pick of next month's draft.
The Colts started QB Matt Ryan in the 1st game under interim HC Jeff Saturday, and he proved solid in the victory over the Raiders. Ryan completed 21 of his 28 passes for 222 yards (7.9 per attempt), 1 TD and no INTs. His lone TD pass went to WR Parris Campbell on a 35-yard pass and run. Ryan added an uncharacteristic 38 yards and a TD on the ground. The start came as a surprise because Saturday said at his introductory press conference that he planned to keep Sam Ehlinger in the lineup. The move back to Ryan should be good for Colts receivers, though Week 11 brings a tough matchup with the Eagles.
Colts beat writer Zak Keefer tweeted that it “appears” QB Matt Ryan will start today against the Raiders. Ryan was seen taking snaps with starting C Ryan Kelly in pre-game warmups. We’ve updated projections to account for the news.
Colts QB Matt Ryan (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Commanders. HC Frank Reich said earlier this week that the team planned on turning to QB Sam Ehlinger regardless of Ryan’s health. QB Nick Foles will be the backup this weekend.
Despite throwing 44 passes and completing 75% of them, Colts QB Matt Ryan amassed just 243 yards and 1 TD in Sunday's loss to the Titans. He added a pair of INTs and took 3 sacks. It marked the 5th time Ryan has logged 2+ turnovers in 7 games this season. Next comes a matchup with Washington, which entered Week 7 as the 7th friendliest matchup for QB scoring (just 2 spots higher than Tennessee). Then comes a New England defense that has been more challenging for QBs.
