Fantasy football ? live Analysis Cowboys vs Falcons

With a total of 48.5 points, dropped from 50 points earlier in the week, perhaps this fantasy football live analysis of this game between the Cowboys and the Falcons has already lost some of its lust as another game could be right up there in a bonanza type scoring affair. Coming up the Alley to this game could also be Saints @ Bills, however this game does not feel like one where the Saints can overmatchup their opponent enough on the road.

So we’ll stay with the consideration of the Cowboys @ Falcons with Atlanta playing at home on the turf indoors. Take a fly through the Stadium anytime you want.

So here are the primary matchups based first on the quality of the fantasy football players actually playing in this hope, or at least hope to because of injury: This is how I usually use statistics to handle these ranking;

You may ask, what is this: Look here for another article on it if needed.

To add to that article, the Standard Dev. can be used in reference to upside. The higher the S.D., the higher the upside. The C.V. is used in reference to Consistency. The lower the number, the more consistent the player is.

Here are some other intriguing players this week:

Also wanted to mention Josh McCown. His ceiling and floor is higher then Big Ben.

Pure, Deep Wealthy Fantasy Footall Strategy:

I did not include Cole Beasly on this list but I should have. He is averaging 1 point more per game then Gabriel, and is simply a better slot receiver. While its difficult to determine how slot receivers do against certain teams, I logically go by tendancy. Meaning, if the team has another player on their squad with a similar skillset, or at least play someone in their division that has a similar skillset. To my conclusion, the Falcons, will not be efficient as they would like in covering Beasly, even though the have a very speedy Gabriel on their side. The Cowboys deep threat was Zeke.

Also to note: The Cowboys have not had a Deep ball connection threat since they played the Packers in week 6. This was with Aaron Rodgers. Even in this game, the longest connection was Michael Bennett, no longer with the team for 33 yards. Jordy Nelson was held in check for only 24 yds in the game. Something to keep on the lookout, as this could really limit what the falcons do deep, since they have not done much of is this year anyway.

  1. Andrew you have an interesting blog post on the Cowboys and Falcons match-up this week. I have participated in fantasy football leagues for years. In my experience a player performance some times depends on their weekly opponent. How consistent are the standard deviation and the consistency variations you have calculated? Do you account for injury reports of how well a defense plays against the run or pass?

    1. Well it may not be practical to take into account those numbers on a week to week standard basis, of course your key evaluations for the week always depend on the defensive matchups

  2. Hi, Andrew! Although the analysis of this game is somewhat old, considering the fact that the Cowboys vs. Falcons game took place several weeks ago, the fact that Dallas was without it’s Pro Bowl starting left tackle Tyron Smith, who usually protects quarterback Dak Prescott’s blindside as he was unable to play because of an injury turned out to be a huge factor. The team’s star linebacker, Sean Lee also ended up pulling a hamstring muscle early in the game as well, knocking him out.

    This spelled doom for the team, (one that I have followed now for almost 50 years since a young boy) as after putting the first points on the board on a touchdown, Atlanta proceeded to blew the Cowboys out.

    One Atlanta Falcons’ defensive lineman got 4+ sacks by himself not having to go up against Smith. Making matters even worse as it marked the first game that All-pro running back Ezekiel Elliott was suspended, Dallas had no running game.

    The Cowboys on the road for this game were completely out of their element. It figures that Dallas has proceeded to lose their next two games, Philadelphia and the LA Chargers getting crushed in both games. All Cowboys’ fans don’t have to be told that unless a miracle happens, such as the team winning all 5 remaining regular season games, (3 more without Elliott) that the team now has no shot at even making the playoffs this year beginning in January.

    Fantasy football stats don’t have to tell me that the Cowboys season this year, after such a great one last season, has been such an incredible waste. Don’t even get me started on the Cowboys’ porous defense either.
