QB - CAR
Week 14 Outlook
Andy Dalton completed 34 of 58 passes for 361 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Panthers' 37-27 loss to the Seahawks.
Dalton wasn't able to lead the Panthers to victory, but he still looked solid while starting in place of injured rookie Bryce Young (ankle). There's a chance Dalton could start again in Week 4 versus the Vikings, which would make him a solid QB2 in fantasy football.
According to team reporter Darin Gantt, QB Andy Dalton is expected to start for the Carolina Panthers in Week 3 as QB Bryce Young sits out with an ankle injury.
At this point in Young's development, Dalton could arguably be a slight upgrade given his tenure in the league, but it shouldn't change much in fantasy land. The Panthers take on a vulnerable Seattle Seahawks defense but are the underdogs on the road. QB Jake Luton will likely act as the team's backup on Sunday.
Panthers QB Andy Dalton is dealing with back tightness, per OC Thomas Brown.
Dalton was absent from Tuesday’s practice as he received treatment for his back. The veteran quarterback is expected to serve as the backup QB to rookie Bryce Young this season. Dalton should be considered day-to-day for now.
According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the Carolina Panthers' GM Scott Fitterer said there is "no timeline" for their young QBs and that QB Andy Dalton is "[their] guy right now."
Despite drafting QB Bryce Young as the No. 1 pick, the Panthers are in no rush to start him. Fitterer said that the team signed Dalton and is happy with him as their starter and that Young, or even QB Matt Corral, will start when they are ready. Dalton has played 12 seasons in the NFL with four teams, starting 162 games in his career. Dalton has finished nearly every season as a starter as a QB2, so as long as he is the starter, he provides superflex value with low-level job security.
Andy Dalton completed 18 of his 22 pass attempts for 204 yards and one interception in a 20-10 win over the Eagles.
Dalton was able to spread the ball around and avoid any major mistakes, outside of the one interception, to help the Saints get their seventh win of the season. Dalton figures to start the final week of the season win the Saints take on the Panthers in Week 18.
