4. Matt Ryan, Falcons
It’s amazing how little credit Ryan got for having such an amazing season last year. His team may have faltered, but he had nothing to do with Ryan, who could have a serious MVP candidate if Atlanta had won a few more games. It’ll be tough replicating those numbers, but not impossible.
Ryan has largely the same supporting cast around him. Julio Jones is still a big-time playmaker and Mohammed Sanu remains a nice complementary target. The X-factor is Calvin Ridley, who was made some amazing plays last year but struggled with consistency. If he takes another step forward this year, Ryan will have a great trio of receivers around him to help make him a top-5 fantasy quarterback.
Top Target: Julio Jones
Secondary Target: Calvin Ridley
