Matt Ryan's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST TAKE

CBS Fantasy Experts' consensus ranking has Matt Ryan as the #7 fantasy QB, but the projections are higher on Ryan. He is Top 3 in our projection. Look to let other owners use their second or third round picks on Andrew Luck, DeSean Watson and Baker Mayfield. You can take Ryan later and get more fantasy points this seaosn.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Based on our latest projection, you can expect Matt Ryan to be an elite fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 366 projected fantasy points puts him at #4 behind Aaron Rodgers and ahead of Cam Newton. He has averaged 26.24 fantasy points in his past 16 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 22.9 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 99%, he is the #6 most highly owned quarterback. Matt Ryan is expected to come up slightly short of last season's #2 fantasy position rank.

MATT RYAN WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Matt Ryan is projected for 19.8 fantasy points in week 1 which only ranks him as the #22 projected quarterback and not a fantasy relevant player for the week. This is projected to be a below average week with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Aaron Rodgers but behind Matthew Stafford. Week 2 will be better based on projected rank (#10). He is projected for 21.9 fantasy points.

MATT RYAN IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $8K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $6.1K

He is projected for 17.5 FanDuel points and 18.7 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$1042 short of $8K on FanDuel and -$658 short of $6.1K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.

FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND ACTUAL STATS

The tables below show projected stats (totals and averages) for the rest of the season and upcoming weeks. Below the projection are actual stats from last season.
