News: Ryan went 21 for 24 with 286 yards and three touchdown passes in Thursday's blowout win over Tampa Bay. Impact: After a bit of a letdown in Week 2, Ryan is back posting dominant fantasy numbers. He's got 965 yards and seven TDs in three games.(STATS, 6:32pm)

News: Ryan completed 21-of-24 passes for 286 yards, with three touchdowns and no turnovers in Thursday's 56-14 win over Tampa Bay. Impact: Ryan turned in a near-perfect performance for the second time in three weeks, after throwing a trio of interceptions in Sunday's 24-10 road loss to the Bengals. He was pulled from Thursday's game in the third quarter, as the Falcons were sitting pretty on a 49-0 lead, thanks in large part to the Ryan-Julio Jones connection. Even with the one stinker in Cincinnati mixed in, Ryan and the Atlanta offense are off to an encouraging start. The team didn't miss a beat without Roddy White (hamstring), who will now have 10 days to get ready for a Week 4 contest at the Vikings.(RotoWire, )

News: Ryan suffered a letdown Sunday for the Falcons. Impact: Ryan was the fantasy stud of Week 1 with a career-high 448 yards. He wasn't smiling after this one. Ryan was 24 of 44 for 231 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions and he faces a short week as he takes on the Bucs on Thursday.(STATS, 11:11pm)

News: Ryan completed 24-of-44 passes for 231 yards and a touchdown, but he also threw three interceptions and was sacked twice during Sunday's loss to the Bengals. Impact: The Falcons really struggled to move the ball against the Bengals and Ryan's touchdown pass, a 14-yarder to Julio Jones, didn't come until 8:35 left in the fourth quarter to make it 24-10. Ryan connected with eight different receivers, but only Jones finished with more than 42 yards. He has now attempted 87 passes through two games. The Falcons will likely have to get more out of their running game, if they want to win more games.(RotoWire, )

News: Ryan went 31 for 43 for a career-high 448 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 37-34 overtime win over New Orleans. Impact: Ryan could be in line for a big season, though he picked apart a loose New Orleans defense that might be in some trouble.(STATS, 6:01pm)
Sep 7, 2014
News: Ryan completed 31-of-43 passes for a franchise-record 448 yards with three touchdowns in Sunday's exciting 37-34 overtime win against the Saints. Impact: Ryan was fantastic in the victory, completing 72 percent of his pass attempts with a sparkling 10.4 YPA. He hooked up with Julio Jones and Roddy White early and often, and even incorporated Devin Hester into the offense, as the veteran kick returner caught five passes for 99 yards. Ryan might find things a little tougher in Week 2, as the Falcons will travel to Cincinnati, but still should be plenty productive with a healthy set of weapons.(RotoWire, )
