#20 vs. BAL 

By Brian Hoffman, Bengals Correspondent, Mon, Oct 20th 9:07am EDT

Dalton completed only 18 passes for 126 yds and no touchdowns against the Colts in week 7.

Fantasy Impact: With AJ Green out, the Bengals became easy to defend for a solid a Colts defense. There is a chance Green returns in week 8 for the Bengals. Dalton is likely unstartable until Green comes back. Those counting on Dalton may start looking for high-upside newcomers until the Bengals' offense gets back on track.

Andy Dalton completed 33 passes for 323 yards and two touchdowns in Week 6, while adding 25 yards on four carries. However, he also threw two interceptions.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the absence of A.J. Green and Marvin Jones, Dalton was able to put up respectable fantasy numbers in Week 6. In fact, the 323 yards passing was a season-high. Dalton will have to work his magic in Week 7 as well, since the Bengals are likely to be without Green and Jones again.

Fantasy Impact: With TE Tyler Eifert on short-term IR already, Dalton is running out of options in the pass game. Look for a big dose of Mohamed Sanu, as well as an increase in looks for Giovanni Bernard and Jermaine Gresham. If you are a Dalton owner, temper expectations or look elsewhere in Week 6.

In week 5, Dalton finished with 17.6 points in standard scoring on 204 yds and two tds along with 16 yds rushing.

Fantasy Impact: Dalton has been steady, but unremarkable in four games this season. At this point, he is purely a matchup play. Combined with another low-end QB1 like Tony Romo, Dalton should remain to be serviceable with an occasional high-scoring game.

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.

Andy Dalton completed 25-of-38 passes for 301 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 vs the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: Week 2 Andy Dalton gets the Falcons at home in what could be a potential shoot out. Could turn into a sneaky play in a pinch or in Salary Cap leagues.

By Bobby Lancaster, Bengals Correspondent, Fri, Aug 22nd 12:24am EDT

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.
