News: 19 hours agoRyan completed 27 of 37 passes for 356 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Titans.
Spin: Ryan has had reasonable passing volume throughout the season, but Sunday's effort was by far his most efficient in four games with the Colts. He spread the ball around but was particularly effective targeting his tight ends, as the trio of Mo Alie-Cox, Kylen Granson and Jelani Woods combined for 11 receptions, 180 yards and two touchdowns. After throwing a total of only one touchdown across his first two games, Ryan now has multiple scores in each of his last two starts.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Ryan was traded to the Colts after spending his first 14 seasons with the Falcons. He has delivered the occasional big fantasy season during his career (second place in 2016 and 2018), but he's also finished 11th or worse five of the last seven seasons despite often ranking near the top of the league in pass attempts. That's especially a concern as he heads to a run-heavy Indianapolis offense that will continue to lean heavily on Jonathan Taylor. Ryan is now 37 years old and has never cleared 147 rushing yards in a single season. He's an upgrade for the Colts, but is not in a good spot from a fantasy perspective. Consider him a fringe QB2 with limited upside.
