Andy Dalton completed 15 of 23 attempts for only 169 yards, 0 TDs, and 1 INT. Dalton also added an 18-yard touchdown reception from WR Mohamed Sanu on a trick play.
Fantasy Impact: For those unfortunate enough to start Dalton in a fantasy league, his day was salvaged by a trick play, where WR Mohamed Sanu threw an 18-yard TD pass to Dalton. The trick play accounted for roughly half of Dalton’s 11 points (standard scoring). Dalton has only thrown two touchdown passes on the season and has seen his point total decline each week. With the strength of the Bengals run game and defense, combined with new OC Hue Jackson, Dalton is not airing it out nearly as much as he did in 2013. Until further notice, Dalton should not be in any starting lineups, and possibly not even on a roster, depending on league depth.
