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.
