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 Daltonâ€™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.

Dalton completed 8-of-8 passes for 144 yards and 1 TD against the Jets on Saturday.
Fantasy Impact: The lower volume that is expected in the passing game will keep Dalton from being a top QB option, however, the efficiency he has been showing makes him a very safe bye week fill or handcuff QB to be had late in drafts.

The real numbers have since been released, and it’s much closer to about $96 million. …but it’s not really $96 million, either, because, as we know, NFL contracts are pretty much complete bullshit. The guaranteed...

In what is considered breaking news, to someone I guess, Andy Dalton pulled a coup de grâce, which I think is a French dessert, some kind of custard pastry thingamajig, and landed a 115 million dollar contract earlier today. Just imagine the total dollar amount if he was actually a good quarterback. I'm kidding, sorta.

Entering the final year of his rookie contract, Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to a six-year contract worth $115 million, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The exact details of the guaranteed money are not known, but the contract is expected to be the pay-as-you-go type of deal that Colin Kaepernick signed earlier this offseason. Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the deal is expected...
