Matt Ryan isn’t off to the best start with the Indianapolis Colts this season. Where is he currently ranked in quarterback rankings?
Matt Ryan has been a top-20 quarterback so far this season with the Indianapolis Colts. At least, that is what Matt Verderame says in his recent QB rankings on FanSided.com. This week, Verderame ranked Matt Ryan at No. 19, moving one spot up from last week’s ranking s when he was ranked 20th in the NFL.
To be honest, that seems a bit high considering the mistakes he still makes on a weekly basis. Ryan might not have had an interception this week, but he still fumbled the ball against the Chiefs this week. Verderame admitted that Ryan wasn’t all that impressive in Week 3 but ultimately came through in the end:
"Ryan didn’t do much against the Chiefs, once again under constant pressure. Still, Ryan led a game-winning drive to upset Kansas City."
The biggest thing helping Matt Ryan this week is that he did lead a long, sustained drive to win his first game with the Colts. Beating the Chiefs is not an easy task to do. The teams that do beat them are poised for post-season success.
Matt Ryan ranked as No. 19 quarterback after three games with Colts
Two spots ahead of Ryan is divisional foe Ryan Tannehill, who the Colts will see in a Week 4 matchup against the Tennessee Titans. If Tannehill truly is a better quarterback, then he should be able to lead the Titans to a victory over the Colts in Indianapolis.
Ryan should be moving up the rankings after this week heading into a matchup against No. 14-ranked Russell Wilson.
Luckily for the Colts, Ryan is not the worst-ranked quarterback in the AFC South. That spot is owned by Houston Texans quarterback Davis Mills. So that certainly is something to consider when looking at these rankings.
Expect Matt Ryan to figure it out this season with the offense. By the end of the season, Ryan will either be a bottom 10 or a top 10 quarterback. I doubt that he is somewhere in the middle of the pack with the talent that Indy has on the offensive side of the ball. The Colts offense just needs to work out the kinks and put it all together.
