The Atlanta Falcons came up just short in their attempt to climb into first place in the NFC South, but Matt Ryan had a solid day of passing against the New Orleans Saints secondary. Ryan finished the day with 351 passing yards, two touchdowns and an interception. They didn't get the win, but for fantasy football purposes, that is a great day, netting out to approximately 20 points in many leagues.
Ryan has been a bit up and down at times but is still capable of big games like this. More importantly, we are getting more and more confirmation of the questionable nature of the Saints defense, particularly on the road. The Saints will win games, but week in and week out, QBs facing off against the Saints have some solid fantasy value. The Saints are on a bye next week, but after that bye, quarterbacks like Eli Manning, Matthew Stafford and even Matt Hasselbeck and Christian Ponder could be in for big games in the coming weeks.
