- 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.
