Andy Dalton throws for over 300 yds against Bills

Following a four-touchdown performance against the Browns, Dalton threw for 328 yds, one TD, and two interceptions.

Fantasy Impact

The good news for those holding out hope for Dalton is that the two picks clanged off A.J. Green's hands. He played a relatively clean game. Since the Bills defense is legitimate, it may be time to upgrade Dalton to a matchup-dependent bye week replacement or a reasonable QB2.

Andy Dalton takes advantage of Browns D for four TDs

Andy Dalton threw for 286 yds and four touchdowns in Week 4, adding 29 yds rushing.

Fantasy Impact

There's nothing like a matchup against the Browns to get a qb back on track. Unfortunately, the Bengals don't play them every week. Apart from the Week 7 matchup with the Colts, Dalton will not have as favorable a matchup until Week 9 against the Titans. If you have the bench room, Dalton is simply a risky matchup play.

Andy Dalton has respectable outing in Week 3

Although he was was quite disappointing from an NFL perspective, Dalton compiled 212 yds and 2 TDs against the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

After jumping out to an early lead, the Bengals just couldn't keep drives going for most of the second half. Dalton has limited upside and a very low floor. He is droppable is most standard formats.

Andy Dalton disappoints again in Week 2

Against a very good Houston defense, Andy Dalton managed to avoid any interceptions, but threw for only 224 yds and no touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact

With so many dynamic rookie QB options like Deshaun Watson and DeShone Kizer on the waiver wire, it's very difficult to justify playing Dalton even in two-quarterback leagues. In very deep leagues, he may be worth a stash in case he turns things around. For now, it's hard to even call him a matchup play.

Andy Dalton terrible in Week 1

Andy Dalton completed 16 of 31 passes for 170 yards and four INT in the Bengals' Week 1 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

Dalton, while still a solid play for season-long games, showed why he is not a top-ten must-play starter at the quarterback position. While Dalton will recover from this game, it shows the importance of playing matchups and finding good streaming options when needed.
