Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has put up solid fantasy numbers this season but, according to Pro Football Focus, just how well he performs is dependent on where the game is being played.
There's no beating around the bush on this one -- Ryan has been a terrible fantasy quarterback in outdoor venues this year. The 11-year veteran has thrown just seven of his 25 touchdown passes playing on a grass field this season and registers a quarterback rating 23 points lower outside of a dome.

Matt Ryan's passer rankings this season:— Brad Rowland (@BTRowland) December 10, 2018
Comp. % - 3rd
Yards - 3rd
YPA - 8th
TD - 6th
QBR - 8th
QB Rating - 5th
and 26 QB's have more interceptions than he does (6)
(and, yet, people want to fire him into the sun)
Ryan is still an elite option at quarterback most weeks than not. However, these numbers will certainly make owners temper their expectations and, possibly, take a look to see what's available on the waiver wire.
