I am flipping back to my typical Offensive Tendencies analysis this week after doing the “Hot Sheet” on a busy Thanksgiving week last week. The Hot Sheet did a good job of helping identify strong plays as I finished 8th in our NFL Expert Grading last week. I may look to either incorporate the Hot Sheet into this article down the road or transition over to the Hot Sheet entirely. Let me know if anyone has any feedback on which format is the most helpful either in the comments or by hitting me up on Twitter (@Rotopilot).

So with that onto the Week 13 analysis…

Dallas Cowboys @ Minnesota Vikings

Projected Plays Pass Pass% Pass Yards Pass TD Run Run% Rush Yards Rush TD Score
Dallas Cowboys 66 32 48.5% 215 1.3 34 51.5% 156 1.2 23.5
Minnesota Vikings 64 39 60.9% 274 1.6 25 39.1% 92 0.6 19.2

Look for the Cowboys to execute their typical run-heavy play distribution on the road in Minnesota. The passing game will be less productive than normal with a decrease in both passing yardage and their opportunity for more than one touchdown pass. The running game will produce their typical yardage but will have a decreased chance for any more than one rushing score. The Cowboys run 51% of the time in the red zone.

The Vikings will pass slightly more often than usual this week. As a result, the passing game will see an increase in passing yardage and their chance for more than one touchdown pass. The running game will also be slightly more productive than usual with an increase in rushing yardage and their typical opportunity for one rushing score. The Vikings run the ball over 54% of the time in the red zone.

Increased Opportunities:

  • Dallas kicker (Dan Bailey) (+)
  • Sam Bradford and the Vikings passing game (Stefon Diggs/Kyle Rudolph) (++)
