Even with star wide receiver Roddy White back from injury, Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had his third straight bad fantasy day Sunday. The quarterback never turned the ball over, but had a season-worst 172 passing yards as the Falcons lost to the Seattle Seahawks, 33-10.
Ryan completed 23 of 36 passes in the game, but only managed a yards-per-attempt average of 4.8. The passing yardage was Ryan's lowest total since Week 12 of last year, when he went for only 165 against the New Orleans Saints. The touchdown pass came on a 12-yard throw to wide receiver Darius Johnson late in the third quarter, when the game was basically already decided.
Fantasy impact: Ryan hadn't had fewer than 15 fantasy points in any game this season until Week 8, three games ago. He hasn't topped 11 points since. Though White returned Sunday, he caught only one pass, leaving Ryan with only wide receiver Harry Douglas and tight end Tony Gonzalez as his big-name targets.
Until White returns to prominence (and not just to active duty), Ryan's stock is nearly gone. He'll be really hard to trust in any outing going forward.
