Andy Dalton to benefit from Bengal draft class

Bengals get explosive skill position players in the first and second rounds in John Ross and Joe Mixon.

Fantasy Impact

Andy Dalton was a borderline low end QB1 high end QB2 down the stretch last year and that was without his best weapon in AJ Green. Getting Green back healthy while adding Ross opposite him to draw away double coverage and having Tyler Eifert back, presumably healthy as well will only open up more throwing lanes for Dalton. Adding Joe Mixon to a struggling backfield last year will take even more pressure off of him by keeping the defense honest while also adding another target to throw to. Things are really looking up for Dalton as far as his weapons to get the ball to, the only worry is that his offensive line will be able to keep him upright long enough to deliver. All of this adds up to Dalton being a prime candidate for those who wait on QB's and a sleeper to finish as a QB1 assuming everyone stays healthy.

Andy Dalton finishes strong, leads Bengals to Week 17 win

Andy Dalton completed 18 of 28 passes for 226 yards and two touchdowns, while adding four yards on four carries on Sunday against the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

Dalton started the game off red-hot, connecting on his first 10 throws with one being a touchdown. This helped the Bengals jump out to a lead early and they went into game management mode in the second half, which limited Dalton's production. Dalton's play has been the sole bright spot in a lost season for the Bengals, and surprisingly he seemed to get better once A.J. Green went down. Heading into 2017, he is an intriguing QB with a lot of talent at the skill positions if they can stay healthy.

Andy Dalton puts together another solid performance in Bengals' loss

Andy Dalton completed 28 of 41 pass attempts for 268 yards and one touchdown, while also throwing one interception in Saturday's loss to the Texans.

Fantasy Impact

Dalton has been surprisingly dependable without his top option in A.J. Green. In Week 16, he put together a strong performance against a tough Texans secondary and spread the ball around to eight different pass catchers. For anyone who still plays in Week 17, Dalton should put together another strong performance against a beatable Ravens secondary and could be a viable option for Derek Carr or Marcus Mariota owners.

Andy Dalton disappoints in loss to Pittsburgh

Andy Dalton throws for 16 for 27 for 157 yards, no touchdowns and an interception on Sunday against Pittsburgh. He also had one carry for one yard and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

Dalton's td run somewhat salvagaged a bad game. After going up early and leading 20-9 at half time behind a few excellent throws from Dalton to LaFell the Bengals could do nothing in the second half. Dalton threw a pass right to a defender for a costly turnover. Andy Dalton should not be considered as a viable starter in week 16 and will be nothing more than a midrange QB2 against a very tough Houston defense.

Andy Dalton throws for two scores in win over Browns

Andy Dalton completed 20 of 28 passes for 180 yards and two touchdown passes, while also rushing twice for 17 yards on Sunday against the Browns.

Fantasy Impact

Another efficient game for Dalton who has back-to-back two-TD pass games. Even in snowy conditions, he took advantage of a weak Browns secondary early and put the game out of reach. The remaining Bengals schedule has them matched up against exploitable secondaries, making Dalton a streaming option for fantasy playoffs.
