What to do with Matt Ryan in Week 7 fantasy football

We go over Matt Ryan’s fantasy football outlook ahead of the Falcons Week 7 matchup against the Lions.

Previewing Lions vs Falcons

Falcons play the Lions in a matchup between two teams with negative records. Something will have to give in a very intriguing Matt Stafford vs Matt Ryan QB battle. How will Matt Ryan respond in fantasy?

Fantasy Football analysis: Falcons QB Matt Ryan

Finally in the win column, Matt Ryan and the Falcons improved a lot as he went 30-for-40 passing with 371 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions during Sunday’s 40-23 win against Minnesota. With a similarly limited defense in Detroit, Matt Ryan is a good quarterback play in fantasy.

Detroit ranks ninth-worst in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks this season and with Julio Jones back and healthy, Ryan has a ton of upside. A similar line as last week’s will garner a lot of points and would come cheaper than other quarterbacks in DFS.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Ryan.
