Is Matt Ryan becoming must-start option?
Ryan is 19-1 in his career at the Georgia Dome after Sunday's impressive 20-17 victory over the Green Bay Packers; the last quarterback since 1966 to win 19 of his first 20 home starts in a career was Danny White, for the 1980-82 Dallas Cowboys. That said, Ryan's career statistics at home aren't exactly extravagant, with 29 touchdowns in those 20 games and an average of 217.9 passing yards per contest. Those rates/numbers are better this season, with 12 touchdowns in six games and 257 yards per game. If you, the savvy fantasy owner, knew you could get 250 passing yards and a few scores from your quarterback, you'd be confident in using him. Of course, Ryan has reached 250 yards and two touchdowns in only two of those six home games.
