The Falcons are letting Matt Ryan take control of the offense this season. We break down the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan completed 30 of 40 passes for 275 yards and three touchdowns against the San Diego Chargers in Week 3. His lone interception on the afternoon was the first turnover he has committed in 2012.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners with Ryan on their team have to be satisfied with the way things are playing out. Ryan was not drafted among the elite quarterbacks in the NFL, but he's hanging with the best of them in his fifth pro season. He now sits at eight touchdowns and just one interception in three games this year. After posting a quarterback rating of 100+ in each performance, it's clear the Falcons will continue to rely on their star passer. Continue to start Ryan each week, as he is sure to put up big numbers.
