Trust = spike production for that player
Matt Ryan: Only Patrick Mahomes threw for more yards than Ryan’s 352 in Week 1, but Ryan ended the week as the QB19 with 15.3 fantasy points. Game script and overtime were helium for Ryan’s volume stats, while repeated missed opportunities in the red zone capped that volume from turning in stronger output.
After the Jaguars were 27th in expected points allowed as a pass defense a year ago, allowing a 69.4% completion rate (31st), 7.6 Y/A (26th), and 0.46 points per pass attempt (26th), they came out and allowed 313 yards and four passing touchdowns to Carson Wentz to open the year.
While the matchup is great on paper, Ryan are coming into this week shorthanded at the wide receiver position with both Michael Pittman and Alec Pierce ruled out. This was already a thin unit behind Pittman, who commanded 13 targets (9-121-1) while the rest of the Colts’ wide receivers saw 14 total targets last week. Forced to lean on Parris Campbell, Nyheim Hines, Ashton Dulin, and Kylen Granson, Ryan is stuck as a floor based QB2.
