Atlanta Falcons DFS Spin
Matt Ryan completed 23-of-30 passes for 343 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' 27-25, Week 9 win over the Saints, adding five carries for eight additional yards and a score. Ryan's one-yard scoring rush in the third quarter was his first of 2021. Hilariously, Ryan put the defense on a poster not once, but twice with his running moves this afternoon. Let's just say Demario Davis might need to turn in his badge and gun. Ryan has now rather quietly been playing sensible football for the better part of a month, establishing a 280/2 floor to go along with three 300-yard passing efforts in his past four contests. All this with Calvin Ridley barely playing and out indefinitely. Ceiling has been basically nonexistent with only one two-plus score day through the air, but Ryan is a perfectly fine top-18 option in a pinch. That will include for Week 10 against the feast-or-famine Cowboys.
Dallas Cowboys DFS Spin
Dak Prescott completed just 19-of-39 passes for 232 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Cowboys' 30-16, Week 9 loss to the Broncos. The Broncos completely dominated Dallas in this one, possessing the ball for 41 minutes and change to a little over 18 minutes for the Cowboys. Dallas was 5-for-13 on third downs and 0-for-4 on fourth downs, as Prescott missed some throws after missing last week to a calf injury. The calf didn't seem to be a problem in this one, but the Broncos' defense certainly was, as the Cowboys fell in a 30-0 hole before Prescott tossed a pair of garbage-time, fourth-quarter scores to backup WR Malik Turner. Prescott will try to rebound next week in an easier matchup with the Falcons.
