Quarterback

Matt Ryan: Ryan looked a lot like the Ryan we had seen prior to facing the Raiders this past week, throwing for 213 yards and 6.7 yards per pass attempt. Ryan has now scored single-digit fantasy points in three of his past five starts.

Ryan is throwing the ball on average 3.3 yards short of the sticks, the lowest rate in the league. That rate is -2.0 yards on third downs, also the lowest rate in the league.

In a week with no byes, Ryan is stuck as a 2QB play, but he at least does draw another matchup to open the door for a high floor and a potential spike week. If playing single-game DFS, he is the better of the showdown passers.

The Steelers are allowing 7.8 yards per pass attempt (30th) and are last in the league in yards allowed per completion (12.8) and touchdown rate (5.8%).
