Matt Ryan is carving up the Lions for huge fantasy numbers


Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has tossed three touchdowns with time to spare in the first half. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan started the night hot and has not simmered down. He began the game going 12-of-12 for two touchdowns. With a minute left in the first half, Ryan is 15-of-16 for 184 yards and three touchdowns.

He has connected with Roddy White twice and Julio Jones once. The Falcons are leading big, 21-3 heading into the half.

Fantasy Analysis: Matt Ryan has been making it happen tonight. He has great time in the pocket and a seemingly unlimited amount of playmakers around him. He has been spreading he ball around, and Tony Gonzalez is yet to really get involved.

This game is getting out of hand and could be a blowout, resulting in monster fantasy numbers for Matt Ryan owners.
