Sean Lee’s Return Will Be Key in the Cowboys’ MNF Showdown with the Titans

  • Anthony Amico breaks down how much Sean Lee's return will factor into the Dallas Cowboys' Monday Night Football matchup with the Tennessee Titans.
  • He also explains how to derive betting and fantasy football value from the following analysis.

I’ll be leveraging my experience as a fantasy analyst with a statistics background and a high school football coach to identify aspects of one matchup every week that you can take advantage of while setting your fantasy football lineups and/or placing bets on the upcoming slate.

For Week 9, we’re focusing on the Monday Night Football matchup between the Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys.

A Heavy Rushing Attack

The 2018 Titans are not very different from the 2017 Titans, despite changes to the offensive coaching staff. Tennessee plays at a slow pace — 30th in the NFL according to Football Outsiders — and frequently plays out of big sets.

Only the Eagles utilize more two- and three-tight end sets than the Titans do, per Sharp Football Stats. Tennessee runs 44% of its plays with at least two tight ends. This has led to the Titans being predominantly a rushing attack. They have a 66% run rate out of these sets.
