Matt Ryan enters his 14th season as the starting quarterback for the Falcons having missed only three games in his career due to injury. Ryan has shown minimal decline in play in his mid-30s, throwing more than 600 passes each of the past three seasons with a strong completion rate, avoiding interceptions at an above-average NFL rate, and keeping Atlanta competitive with an uninspiring defense. Ryan offers little on the ground outside of the possibility of a rushing touchdown or two from short range. The weapons for Atlanta are solid but Julio Jones being traded to Tennessee is a significant loss. That leaves Calvin Ridley, Hayden Hurst, and an underrated Russell Gage, plus the addition of Kyle Pitts, who will be leaned on more than if Jones remained with the team in 2021. Mike Davis offers a passing game upgrade over the Todd Gurley-led group where no back had more than 34 targets.
