Most find it fun to dog Dalton after his lackluster 2017 campaign, but did you know that he's still yet to finish outside the top-18 fantasy quarterbacks? It's because he's typically healthy, has a solid cast of wide receivers, and has no threat of getting benched. It was his yardage that took the biggest hit in 2017, because his touchdown (25) to interception (12) ratio was actually solid. The Bengals need to inject some youth into the offense, so expect to see Joe Mixon and John Ross a lot more involved in year-two, which could revive Dalton's fantasy status. He's a solid No. 2 quarterback in 2QB leagues.I'm usually a big proponent of drafting Taylor in fantasy football, but this has more to do with him potentially losing the job to Baker Mayfield at some point. If you could guarantee he'd start the entire season, he'd probably rank inside my top 15 quarterbacks. As of now, I'm projecting Mayfield to take over for the final six games, which really hurts Taylor's overall projection. But if you're one to stream the quarterback position, you can snag Taylor and pair him with Jameis Winston, who returns in Week 4.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Dalton has never finished worse than QB18 through his first seven seasons so it don't be surprised if he does it once again. He is without question among the worst starters in football, but he gets the job done well enough to start many weeks in two-QB leagues.Tyrod has never had weapons like this, yet has always managed to be a sufficient fantasy asset. Feel free to use him until his time as the starter runs out, especially in two-qb leagues. He will go undrafted in most leagues, but will definitely make for a great streamer at times.
Chet Gresham

Dalton had one of his worst seasons last year, yet still managed a top-20 spot in fantasy. That's not what you want out of a quarterback, but his consistency remains good for 2QB leagues and we've seen that he does have higher upside when his weapons are healthy. If Green, Eifert, Ross, Mixon, and Bernard can stay healthy and play well, Dalton will beat this ranking.Taylor ends up with the Browns, but it's not as bad as it sounds. Cleveland has improved its roster and Taylor will have Landry, Gordon, Coleman, Johnson, and Njoku to throw to, and that ws before the 2018 NFL Draft. The Browns drafted Baker Mayfield, but Taylor will be the starter Week 1, and if he can be successful, he will remain there this season.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Dalton has always solidified a top-20 QB finish, so rankings concerned predominately with accuracy must place him higher. But who is actually going to forgo a potential difference-maker for someone who will defy the critics with QB17 stature? The only reason to draft Dalton: Cincinnati opens the season at Indianapolis, the perfect matchup for a streamer such as the Red Rifle.It's time to find out how much Buffalo stifled Taylor. Over the last three years, the dual-threat QB has ranked 24, 25, and 25 in pass attempts. Although rarely effective, the Browns aired it out 39 times per contest last year. Taylor also tallied 1,575 rushing yards and a 1.3 INT % over those three seasons, so it's not far-fetched for him to blossom into a legitimate fantasy starter. It's also possible Baker Mayfield replaces him in September. He's ideally someone to carefully monitor on the waiver wire in standard leagues.
Staff Rankings
QB List
Not re-signing Andrew Whitworth and Kevin Zietler proved to be one of the worst decisions the Bengals could have made for their offense, as their offensive line was pretty terrible last season. As a result, Dalton saw his yardage total drop to a career-low 3,320 yards. Outside of that, Dalton was pretty much what you'd expect from Andy Dalton-a guy who can make some big-time throws but also makes some pretty dumb decisions that lead to turnovers. If the Bengals' offensive line improves this year, Dalton could be more of a mid-level QB2, but as it stands, the upside isn't all that great, even with the talent surrounding him. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Dalton was the 18th ranked fantasy quarterback with no offensive line help last year, Dalton is consistently one of the more underrated players in fantasy football.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
The Red Rifle has dealt with injuries and bad luck the past two years but can still be a fantasy gem. I just won't be drafting him, is allThe Browns actually have a lot of nice weapons, so a dual threat like Taylor possesses nice upside if he can start hot and stave off Baker Mayfield
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
Dalton's rushing production fell off last season but he still tossed 25 TD's in a down year. He's not someone you want to target as your starter, but he's a solid part of a QB tandem or ideal back-up. Taylor can actually approach QB1 numbers with an underrated Cleveland offense, but we can't be sure that No. 1 pick Baker Mayfield won't be installed or taking starts at some point, so Taylor comes with a bit of uncertainty.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
 Only thing holding him back from top-20 at the position is that I'm not sure he starts all 16 games.
Rich Piazza
Fantasy Shed
 Already in a better spot by having Josh Gordon and Jarvis Landry to throw to
