Week 10 Football Fun Facts
•In Week 10 the Falcons continued to utilize the linebacker rotation that they have been using in recent weeks, which in turn is bringing some predictability to the results. WLB Paul Worrilow (all 71 snaps) and SLB Joplo Bartu (69 snaps) basically manned every-down duties, while MLB Akeem Dent (35 snaps) performed as a situational run stopper, coming off of the field in passing situations. Over the last three games Dent has been credited with three, four and six tackles while Bartu has been credited with five, eight and six tackles.
Worrilow, who was credited with 19 tackles in Week 9, repeated that feat. The undrafted free agent also once again had seven stops and one quarterback hit/hurry. He actually upped his fantasy production as ten of his tackles were credited as solos versus the measly nine that he put up in Week 9. Week 10’s high tackle total was due to Worrilow’s solid all around play (+1.7) and to Atlanta once again having an offensive time of possession of less than 25 minutes (24:30.)
But now that the situation in Atlanta is starting to make sense, stud WLB Sean Weatherspoon returns to muddy up the waters.
