Matt Ryan puts in mediocre fantasy performance to end season

Kevin C. Cox

Matt Ryan and the Falcons struggled on offense in Week 17. We break down the fantasy implications.

Matt Ryan completed 28 of 44 passes for 238 yards and one touchdown in Week 17 against the Buccaneers. While he didn't make any big mistakes on Sunday, Ryan and the Falcons offense couldn't get much going.

He ends the season with a career-high in passing yards, passer rating and touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: Mike Smith decided to stick with his starters to close out the regular season, but in retrospect that might not have been the best decision. Atlanta's offense struggled throughout the afternoon, only producing 278 total yards of offense.

Aside from a midseason lull, Ryan managed a solid year overall for fantasy owners. His average draft position will certainly be elevated heading into 2013.
