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.

DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK

Based on our latest pre-season projection, you can expect Matt Ryan will be an elite fantasy starter. His 364 projected fantasy points puts him at #4 behind Andrew Luck 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 22.8 fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 99%, he is the #10 most highly owned quarterback. Matt Ryan is expected to come up slightly short of last season's #2 fantasy position rank.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

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 Josh Allen but behind Matthew Stafford. Week 2 will be better based on projected rank (#7). He is projected for 22.4 fantasy points.

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.
