The days of Matt Ryan as a useful, every-week quarterback in fantasy football leagues are officially over. His brutal season reached a new low last week when he threw three interceptions in a loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. The outlook for Ryan isn’t much better this week when Atlanta takes on the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Football analysis: Falcons QB Matt Ryan

Ryan completed 21 of 32 passing attempts last week; that was his first game since Week 9 with a completion percentage above 60. He’s not got just four touchdowns to six interceptions in his last four games.

While the Buccaneers can run hot and cold, they did a good job dousing a red hot Vikings’ passing game with ice-cold water last week, holding Kirk Cousins to just 225 yards and one touchdown. Dampening Matt Ryan’s outlook, even more, is the possibility of another week without Julio Jones. He’s been much worse without his No. 1 receiver. Look elsewhere for QB help this week.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Sit Matt Ryan.
