The Falcons attempted 537 passes in 2016, which was their lowest number over the last seven seasons. Ryan finished with a career high in passing yards (4,944), passing TDs (38), completion rate (69.9), and yards per pass attempt (9.3). Also, he had a career low in interceptions (7). Ryan has an 85-57 record with one appearance in the Super Bowl. He threw for 300+ yards in six games, which included 503 yards and four TDs vs. the Panthers in Week 4. Half of his games resulted in three of more TDs. His game was explosive as well in the playoffs (70-for-98 with 1,014 yards and nine TDs and no Ints). On the surface, Matt doesn't have great receiving options behind Julio Jones at WR and TE so repeated success could be a tall task. In 2016, the RB position was explosive in the passing game (93/946/6 on 117 targets), which forced defenses to respect all areas of the field. This allowed the Falcons to create plenty open space in the deep passing game leading to 69 completions over 20 yards with 22 TDs going to the WR position. Ryan continues to have a top 3 WR drafted who offers big play ability and scoring ability. His floor should be about 4,500 yards with a chance at 30+ TDs with his downside tied to the success of the run game.
