2016 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Aug-12-2016 by Shawn Childs


Over eight seasons in the NFL, Matt has a 74-52 record. He's missed the playoffs in the last three years after playing at an elite level over the first five seasons in the league (52-22). Ryan has thrown the ball over 600 times in each of his last four years in the league leading to four straight seasons with over 4500 yards passing. Even with a stud WR, Matt has struggled to offer an edge in TDs in his last three years (26, 28, and 21) plus he's never had more than 32 TDs in a season. Ryan had five games with 300 yards passing or more and only one game with more than two TDs. For him to make step forward in production, Matt needs a couple of receiving options to become relevant in the passing game. Julio Jones and Devonta Freeman are high volume passing options, which ensures a high floor. This season I think he will throw the ball less. His passing yards should decline slightly with questionable upside in TDs. I'm seeing about 4300 yards with about 25 TDs pointing to league average results for the QB position.

2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
18.09 Doug Moore - Ryan finished as the QB19 in 2015 and was drafted in the same position in this mock draft. With Julio Jones and Devonta Freeman back as his main targets in the pass game, Ryan has the chance to be a solid QB2 for a team in 2016.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
12.05 Scout Fantasy - Shawn Childs - Long resume of success with one of the best WRs in the game. He just needs more production in TDs in 2016.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
15.05 Cowboys HQ - Matthew Postins - In case of emergency, break glass and start Ryan. He's also trade bait for later this season because you know injuries will happen.
