3. Matt Ryan
Fantasy Disappointment of the Day: Matt Ryan (22-34, 273 passing yards, 1 touchdown, 1 interception: 13.72 points)
Coming into this game against San Diego’s porous passing defense, Ryan was supposed to light up the stat sheets. However, his final numbers (and his second half performance) were very underwhelming.
The one touchdown was a disappointment, especially considering the fact that the birds had to settle for field goals on three separate drives — including one which started on San Diego’s 10-yard line, following a Deion Jones interception return.
The late 4th quarter interception on a 1st and 20 was also utterly unacceptable, and ended up being crucial in San Diego’s comeback.
In the end, missed opportunities and the interception resulted in a disappointing day for Matt Ryan.
Analysis: Despite the sub-15 point performance, Ryan remains the number 1 scoring QB in fantasy. Roll with him in what should be a shootout against the Green Bay Packers next week.
