Say what you will about Dalton's ability, but when A.J. Green is healthy, Dalton produces. He was a top 8 QB two seasons ago and still managed to produce as a solid QB2 last season. Add in a potent running game and his value gets another slight bump up.

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.
