Matt Ryan lays fantasy egg with five picks

Kevin C. Cox

Matt Ryan threw for five picks in one of the worst games of his career. We break down the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan had a day to forget in Week 11. Against the Arizona Cardinals, Ryan completed 28 of 46 passes for 301 yards, zero TDs and five interceptions, for a miserable 40.5 QB Rating. It was one of the worst performances of his career.

Miraculously, the Falcons still won the game despite six turnovers, as the Cardinals could muster only 178 total yards and fell 23-19.

Fantasy Impact: Ryan has been one of the most consistent, reliable fantasy QBs this season, so it was a bizarre head-scratching performance that burned many fantasy owners.

I wouldn't panic about Ryan's poor numbers, even if the Falcons probably aren't as good as their 9-1 record indicates. He should be able to bounce back against the Buccaneers secondary in Week 12.
