Matt Ryan, QB (ATL)

Hits 300 yard-mark in loss

Ryan completed 35 of 46 passes for 300 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions in the Falcons' 48-25 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also gained three yards on two rushes.

In a game script that's likely to replicate itself often for the Falcons this season, Atlanta was forced to keep its foot on the gas through all four quarters, leading to a fantasy-friendly day for Ryan in the loss. The veteran was able to connect with Calvin Ridley and Cordarrelle Patterson for his pair of scores, but he also short-circuited the Falcons' final chances for a comeback by throwing a pair of pick-sixes to Mike Edwards in the fourth quarter. The learning curve for Ryan and his offensive teammates with head coach Arthur Smith's system is likely to shorten by the week, and a Week 3 matchup against the vulnerable Giants could lead to a big step forward .
