Can anyone help me assess my market competition?

Hey I am looking to start up a blog in a certain market and I've done the Competition Research so far, I would need some help assessing it.I saw the 10 top pages rank for a certain page in their domain, and only that page has any relevance to the targeted keyword, in rest the domains talk about other subjects. If I have my blog focused on that keyword, making the whole domain more optimized for it, including for example, placing it in the domain name, will that be feasible enough to outrank the competitors? Or is their authority too strong?

Below I have transcribed the competition research based on internal and external factors used for SEO, with the nr. 1 website at the top of the list.


Legend for the above:
DA=Domain Age
CF=Citation Flow
TF=Traffic Flow
NP=Number of pages on the domain indexed by Bing globally
UBD=Number of unique backlinks pointing to the domanin
BD=Number of backlinks pointing to the domanin
UBP=Number of unique backlinks pointing to page
BP=Number of backlinks pointing to page
T=Keywords in Title
U=Keywords in Page URL
D=Keywords in Description
H=Keywords in Header

Thank you guys for any help!

You may always outrank any competition. It just takes time and a lot of effort to do so for high competitive keywords. There are numbers above that you can compete with. Try to also check what their content is-- and see why they are indexed in the first place. Numbers are important, yes but you also have to look at each page's content to see why they are chosen as top results for that certain keyword.
