The Atlanta Falcons have had a topsy turvy journey so far this season, but they’re 4-4 and still in contention for a playoff spot. You never know what Atlanta Falcons team you’re going to see, but they can be dangerous when they’re firing on all cylinders. The Dallas Cowboys are coming off their toughest loss of the season, a 30-16 loss to the Denver Broncos at home. Whether it was Dak Prescott recovering from injury or signs of deeper issues, the team needs a bounceback win this week. The Falcons head to Jerry World to take on the Cowboys this Sunday, so let’s take a look at the best player props.
Atlanta Falcons vs. Dallas Cowboys Player Prop Search Tool
Matt Ryan Over 289.5 Passing Yards
I didn’t expect Matt Ryan to have a very good season. The veteran QB has been on the decline for a bit, and I thought the wear and tear would start to show in 2021. Well, he’s been proving me wrong so far, with four games over 300 yards so far. He’s averaging 271 yards per game through the air, and I could see that number climbing up this week. The Dallas Cowboys have had trouble in the secondary all season long, allowing 270.5 passing yards per game. Ryan is clicking with tight end Kyle Pitts right now, and that connection is going to keep the Cowboys on their toes. Go with the former MVP to hit 300 or more on Sunday.
Cordarelle Patterson Under 43.5 Rushing Yards
Cordarelle Patterson has been so fun to watch this season. The running back can do it all, and that’s going to give Dallas defenders a huge headache. However, I don’t expect him to rip off many huge runs this week. For all the faults of the Cowboys defense, they can stop the run. Dallas is allowing just 101 rushing yards per game this season, good enough for 10th in the league. Patterson is coming off a game in which he had nine rushing attempts for just 10 yards. Expect him to go under in Arlington.
Dak Prescott Over 2.5 Passing TDs
Don’t let last week fool you, Dak Prescott is one super-talented QB. The quarterback was tearing apart opposing defenses before his injury, with three or more touchdowns for four games in a row. Atlanta’s pass defense hasn’t been terrible, but they’re not equipped to take on this type of high-octane offense. I’m going with Prescott to toss a few more scores as he continues his MVP bid.
Amari Cooper Under 4.5 Receptions
Amari Cooper is a great receiver, don’t get me wrong. But if you look at his stats, he’s been very inconsistent this year. While he started the season hauling in 13 catches against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the WR has has five games with three or fewer receptions. That might speak more to the number of weapons Prescott has at his disposal than a sharp decline from Cooper. Whatever the case, I’m going under until Cooper starts getting more consistency.
