Matt Ryan racks up yards to make fantasy owners forget about last week

Mike Ehrmann

Matt Ryan didn't throw five interceptions again. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Falcons managed another close victory in Week 12, and Matt Ryan was leading the way once again. He completed 26 of 32 passes for 353 yards, one touchdown and an interception on the road in Tampa Bay.

Ryan's five-pick performance last week against the Cardinals was erased (somewhat) as Atlanta improved to 10-1.

Fantasy Impact: Owners hopefully kept their faith in Ryan after his Week 11 debacle. He completed his first 10 passes to start the game before throwing an interception to Ronde Barber. Aside from that mistake, he was spot on throughout the afternoon.

Julio Jones dropped what would have been another touchdown pass late in the game, and the Falcons managed to add two scores on the ground, so Ryan's numbers certainly could have been better. Still, he looks back on track and will be a QB1 again next week against the Saints.
