Is anybody NOT sold on Matt Ryan?

Recommended Posts

They really need a solid wr2. White is a ghost of himself, and Hank isn't very good. Hopefully they'll address this in the off season.

Drafting Matt Ryan and Peyton Manning in a 2qb league sounded so good in August.

Matty Ice is on the wire in one 10 man league I am in, I dropped him weeks ago, and no one has touched him.

Interestingly enough, this is a league where invariably a few teams will have two QBs also.

In another 12 man league, I dropped him a week ago, and he still sits on the wire there too.

I owned him last year on one championship team, and I knew he was hit and miss. Owning him can be frustrating.

Next year, I doubt I will have any shares of him anymore.

Seemed like he was one of those "mid to later" round QBs you could always grab and get fair value, when a bunch of those big names were gone.

I don't know I am looking to fade his bad weeks anymore, and his "value grab" years might just be over.

I know the team will likely try and improve him and the scenario, as he is obviously their guy.

Maybe he will be in a better position next season. Perhaps they get a better line, work on the problems etc.

I just don't see owning him anymore though, in standard 10 or 12 team leagues.

Looks like he is currently QB19 in standard, heading into the playoffs.

No thanks.

Matt Ryan has tried to improve his footwork this offseason by practicing in front of a mirror.

 

Ryan has used the mirror to work on his timing after a career-worst 2015 season that included just 21 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. The 31-year-old still completed over 66 percent of his passes, so he doesn't need to overhaul his approach. The Falcons remain thin at wide receiver behind Julio Jones, though offseason signing Mohamed Sanu should be an improvement on Roddy White, who had nothing left last year.

What kills me about Ryan is I still think he could be elite, given the right circumstances. 

I fear ATL has not created the right circumstances. 

Or maybe I overrated him. One f the two. But he's had complete games - He's looked elite in spurts. 

Not sure what to expect this year.

If you were sold on Ryan, I am sure you are wondering what the return policy is.

Ryan moving down my board and, in non-PPR, Julio is too.

K.Shanahan sucks.

I sold him for a 3rd round pick in my dynasty league....no faith in him.

Geez, he didn't go until the 5th in our rookie/FA. Well done.

I don't think this guy is a very good fantasy QB.  Backup material at best imo

update?

 

Many Falcons fans believe this system is finally a system that fits Ryan.  He's currently the numero uno QB.

Unbelievable.   I had this turd last year and he did nothing.   He still sucks though... pretty sure Matt Stafford has finished as a Top 5 QB before

Ryan always showed flashes. He's never had this many weapons or a team that could run effectively. 

He also reportedly spent the offseason working on the deep pass. Looks like it's paid off.

say what you will about the dude, he's putting up monster numbers.   Before it was "yeah, hat was against the Saints & Raiders - just wait until he sees CAR & DEN.  Yeah - won those games too. 503 yards against CAR with a 300 yard receiver. 

Like him or hate him, Matt Ryan is having a career season. I expected him to be this good when I drafted him in 2013, 2014 & 2015 as my "free fall QB". Never came together - and last year I thought he'd regressed with all the red zone ints. 

This year he looks like he's got something figured out. Dominating performances.

Didn't they start good last year and then fizzled out?  I am not buying him being this good all year

He wasn't anywhere near this good. Lots of red zone interceptions,  wasn't hitting Jjones on the deep passes, was struggling with his check downs and the OL wasn't anywhere near this solid. 

I had to start him much of last year and watched him often - it's night and day compared to how he looks this year. 

I am drinking the koolade.

Anybody getting even a little nervous about him regressing a bit as the season goes on?  Would have thought the matchup vs Sd at home would have yielded way more points for him. Mediocre stat line and it could have easily been worse with at least one more possible pick that Sd dropped.  

How are Ryan owners feeling this week and going forward?

They stalled in (or near) the redzone 3 times as usual when I start him. That was a 4 TD game that he should have had.

Which was his biggest problem last year as well.  The yards are always there every year. What made him an excellent start earlier this season was the TDs.  Good point!

He doesn't have an easy schedule going forward either and N.O. is week 17 so that one is meaningless in my leagues.

Ryan doing his typical late season cool down, Jones and Sanu both battling injuries.  Anybody concerned with this trip to L.A.?  Plan B for me is Carr at Arrowhead tonight.  Coin toss . . . :kicksrock:

in a dynasty keeper league if you can only keep one, cam newton or matt ryan??

That's a no brainer. Matt Ryan. Newton is garbage, There is some concern going forward obviously without Shanahan calling the O.

Quinn is no idiot. I believe he'll find a good replace for Shanny jr. and run the same offense. Def.will be better also and help take some burden off his shoulders and just play ball.
