Scouting Report

Divisional Round at Philadelphia Eagles

Matt Ryan completed 21-of-30 passes for 218 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons’ Wild Card victory over the Rams. Ryan’s lone touchdown pass was a perfectly-timed and positioned pop-up to Julio Jones as his back foot was sliding backward on wet grass. Ryan didn’t post eye-popping numbers but he was extremely efficient despite being under siege by Aaron Donald all night.

The Falcons will head to Philadelphia this Saturday afternoon to take on an Eagles defense that ranks fifth against fantasy quarterbacks. Atlanta is likely to have a similar game plan this week to the one it put together last week: run the ball and use the short passing game as an extension of the run. Tom Brady, Case Keenum, and Ben Roethlisberger are better options in DFS than Ryan, who is our No. 4 ranked QB for the Divisional Round. That said, while his ceiling might not be very high, Ryan’s floor isn’t low.
