I mentioned last week that you shouldn't bury Dalton for one bad game as the starter. I mean, everyone has a bad day, though his came on national television when everyone was watching. We had nine seasons worth of competent quarterback play in a worse offense with worse receiving options. We can't pretend he's fixed because of one good game, but we never should've buried him for one bad game. Throwing for 203 yards and three touchdowns was a start, but now he'll go against the defense that knocked him out cold back in Week 7 when he completed just 9-of-19 passing for 75 scoreless yards. Washington is one of six teams who've allowed fewer than 1.30 PPR points per offensive play, so seeing him struggle in that game shouldn't have been too shocking. Washington has generated a sack on 9.4 percent of dropbacks, which ranks as the second-highest number in the league, and a lot different than the Vikings last week (nearly half the percentage). On the season, Washington has allowed just four quarterbacks finish better than the QB20 against them, and just one of those games has come since Week 5. In today's passing league, it's odd to see a team allow just four quarterbacks to finish with more than 212 passing yards against them, but that's where we're at with Washington. Dalton is not someone you should aim to stream on Thanksgiving.
