Another couple scores likely for Matt Ryan
With questions about their head coach and starting quarterback, the Redskins are in disarray, coming off a 45-10 shellacking against the Chiefs in which they appeared disinterested. And just in terms of statistics, they've had a hard time stopping the pass, giving up the sixth-most yards of any team. They've allowed the second-highest quarterback rating and the sixth-most Fantasy points to quarterbacks.
Granted, the Chiefs' Alex Smith wasn't particularly productive against him last week, but that's because their defense and special teams ensured he didn't have to be. The Falcons have no choice but to lean on Ryan.
Ryan has been an iffy start in Fantasy since star wide receiver Julio Jones went down, but this week, he's borderline advisable. Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura all have him in their top 12 quarterbacks for this week, with Dave ranking him as high as eighth.
