Factoid: Atlanta Falcons

Factoid: Matt Ryan

It's a week of fantasy drafts, and I had my home league a couple of nights ago. This league awards 6 points for touchdown passes, but quarterbacks don't tend to go much earlier than in other leagues.

Veteran Atlanta quarterback MATT RYAN has been working hard to learn the new offensive system that new head coach Arthur Smith is implementing.

Factoid: Matt Ryan

While there's debate over exactly which quarterbacks will go 1-2-3, there's no doubt that those picks in the upcoming draft will in fact be used on quarterbacks. It's at No. 4 where the positional mystery begins. Will the Atlanta Falcons stay put and draft a pass catcher, or will they trade down with a quarterback-desperate team.

Factoid: Grounded Falcons

Arthur Smith is taking over in Atlanta, and I think that will make for one of the league’s most dramatically altered offenses. The Falcons have heavily emphasized the pass in recent years, but under Smith, it should become more of a run-oriented system.   more »

Several mock drafts have the Atlanta Falcons selecting a quarterback with the fourth overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. When asked about the possibility this week, 35-year-old Atlanta quarterback MATTMore RYAN said he would focus on being a “good teammate” if the scenario came to fruition.

Ian Allan: Drafts vs. Auctions
