Stream Alert: Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons vs. Detroit Lions
There weren’t many weeks you could find a good matchup for Ryan, but lo and behold, Week 16 has presented his few owners out there a chance to bring home some fantasy hardware. He’ll have to play above what he’s been doing, because in the last six games combined, Ryan has thrown more picks (5) than touchdowns (3). Can he get back to that place he was at in Week 9 against the Saints?
I do think he can. He’s looked better throwing the ball of late, knowing he still has just Russell Gage, Hayden Hurst and Cordarrelle Patterson to throw to. He just hasn’t had the touchdowns. Now Detroit is not an easy matchup as they’ve proven each week that they’re not going to roll over, but they’ve had letdowns before. At this stage, with COVID out there decimating some fantasy teams, Ryan could be just good enough (say, 225 yards and two touchdowns) to give your team a chance if you are in desperate times.
Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams at Minnesota Vikings
If you have Stafford, you just keep rolling with him. I know he’s only hit the 300 mark once in the last six games, but he’s come close three times. He’s thrown for multiple scores in four straight games coming in and the Vikings have been abused through the air.
