What to do with Matt Ryan? That’s a big question for the Atlanta Falcons moving forward, but for our purposes, we’re only concerned with their Week 14 game against the Los Angeles Chargers. We’re a long way from those three- and four-touchdown games that used to be a regular part of his boxscore, but Ryan has some usefulness in fantasy football this week.
Fantasy Football analysis: Falcons QB Matt Ryan
Ryan had a touchdown and 273 yards in a loss to the Saints last week, completing less than 50 percent of his passes. The week before that he threw two scores against the Raiders, but he failed to top 5 yards per attempt. It’s been a rough stretch for him.
But the Chargers present a nice chance for a bounce back. They gave up four touchdowns to the Patriots last week (two through the air), and even Joe Flacco had a pair of scores against this team back in Week 11. With his receivers healthy, Ryan shouldn’t have a problem getting at least a pair of scores here either, and he could definitely do more given the matchup.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
