According to cnnsi.com (click here for the article), the Falcons have decided to make rookie QB Matt Ryan the team’s starter. The #3 draft pick certainly has the potential to succeed, the question for fantasy owners is if he will be able to or not.
The team doesn’t have much for him to throw to, with the recent release of Joe Horn. Roddy White & Michael Jenkins are good backs receivers, but I wish Ryan had a steady, veteran presence to use. I would not touch the rookie as my starter, as he has the potential to go through some growing pains throughout the season. As a reserve and a flyer late in your draft, I wouldn’t mind him, but don’t look to him as an every week option.
