Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan will be trying to build off of his performance last week against the Las Vegas Raiders when he faces the New Orleans Saints on Sunday afternoon.

Fantasy Football analysis: Falcons QB Matt Ryan

The last time the Atlanta Falcons played the New Orleans Saints a couple of weeks ago, they lost 24-9. In that game, veteran quarterback Matt Ryan did not play well, completing 51.3 percent of his passes for 232 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions. He was also sacked an enormous eight times.

But Ryan sort of bounced back the next week, with 185 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception against the Raiders. The 35-year-old scored 13.9 fantasy points, which was an improvement from the 5.3 he scored against New Orleans.

That being said, it is hard to imagine Ryan scoring 5.3 fantasy points again, if he has All-Pro wide receiver Julio Jones by his side. However, Jones is listed as questionable, so he won’t know anything until game time.
