 The Dolphins gave up 244 yards passing to Cody Kessler last week, which is amazing in itself, but they also were scorched by Jimmy Garoppolo in his healthy half for 234 yards and three touchdowns. Dalton shouldn't have any trouble getting the ball to A.J. Green in this one
FantasyPros Staff

 Dalton has produced 0.37 fantasy points per drop back. He has struggled this season with a lack of receiving weapons in Cincinnati. Dalton has only thrown two touchdowns this season. We view him as a low-end QB2 against the Dolphins in Week 4.
Derek Lofland

The Rams are 18th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Palmer needs to step up his game, he is only the 14th ranked fantasy quarterback.
