4 NFL FanDuel Studs to Target in Week 6
Matt Ryan, QB, Atlanta Falcons
FanDuel Price: $8,300
Projected Points: 22.9
The Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in line for a shootout this weekend, as their game leads all others on the main slate with an over/under of 57.5 points. The Falcons are on the better side of that line, with an implied total of 30.5 points as 3.5-point favorites at home.
With that in mind, the next step is to predict where all of those points will come from. Considering the Buccaneers are giving up more FanDuel points per game than any other team to opposing quarterbacks this season, it's very likely that Matt Ryan will be a big contributor. Our models back that up, projecting Ryan to lead all quarterbacks on the main slate in passing yards (312.1), passing touchdowns (2.6) and FanDuel points (22.9).
As great as those numbers sound, that performance would actually leave Ryan with the least amount of passing yards Tampa Bay has allowed in a game this season.
Both the floor and ceiling are extremely high here for Ryan, putting him in a great position to anchor your lineups.
