Football Outsiders Ratings: The Math Loves The Falcons

Football Outsiders ranks the Falcons second in the NFL in team efficiency and third in playoff odds, and ranks Atlanta's offense fourth in opponent-adjusted DVOA and its defense tenth.

Among their respective positions, Jason Snelling ranks third, Matt Ryan tenth, and Tony Gonzalez seventeenth. Roddy White and Harry Douglas rank in the fifties, for some reason. White gets a billion targets per game, so FO's math may not be impressed by his yardage, while Douglas has only gotten a handful of touches and thus minimal chances to make an impact.
