Matt Ryan poised for a big fantasy performance against Detroit

Leon Halip

Matt Ryan has a solid matchup for fantasy owners on championship weekend.

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has a solid matchup against the Detroit Lions in Week 16, just in time for the vast majority of fantasy football championships.

Ryan is having a breakout season. He already set new franchise records for completions in a season and passing yards in a season. Ryan currently ranks No. 6 among quarterbacks in standard Yahoo! leagues.

The Lions are in the middle of the pack when it comes to defending the pass, but Atlanta's red hot passing attack should still fare well. Detroit's been hampered by a depleted secondary all season long. The fact that the Falcons play on Saturday could work to Ryan's advantage as well, as his team will need to win to lock up home field advantage.
