Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

After Ryan's career year in 2016, regression last season seemed almost inevitable. Undoubtedly the loss of Kyle Shanahan as his offensive coordinator also played a role. Still, the Falcons showed their faith in Ryan by signing him to a massive extension this spring that will take him through his age 38 season in Atlanta. It's a vote of confidence in Ryan, but also a testament to how difficult it is to find and develop a franchise signal caller. While Julio Jones's best seasons may be behind him, the addition of first round rookie Calvin Ridley should help ensure Ryan's long term production. Though he's spiked and dipped at times, Ryan is basically a 4500 yard, 25 touchdown passer, and there's no reason to believe he can't consistently post numbers in that range for seasons to come.

2018 Season Outlook

Ryan should improve in his second season with Steve Sarkisian as the offensive coordinator, and a bounce back in the touchdown and yardage department seems inevitable. Last season saw him post his lowest yardage total since 2010, and the 20 touchdowns were his lowest mark since his rookie season in 2008. The addition of Ridley should be boost, and the fact that Julio Jones contract situation has been satisfied to the point where he's no longer a holdout threat, gives Ryan a measure of safety as well.
