Ryan has averaged 28.8 touchdowns over his last four seasons. He will be returning two All-Pro wideouts in Julio Jones and Roddy White, so expect Ryan to throw another 30-plus touchdowns in 2014.

Interceptions - 13

Ryan threw a career-high 17 interceptions in 2013, but the increase in turnovers was due to the lack of options around him. With a healthy set of weapons this year, it is now hard to imagine Ryan not bringing his interception total to under 15 again.

Fumbles - 3

Ryan has fumbled the ball 21 times throughout his career, including four times last year. He tends to look up field before securing the ball and it will cause him to once again drop a couple balls this fall.
