It wasn't a great starting debut for Dalton with the Cowboys. It seems many have forgotten he completed 9-of-11 passes for 111 yards in relief of Dak Prescott just two weeks ago. The good news is that they trusted him to throw the ball 54 times, as that'll typically lead to results with his group of pass catchers. The issue this week, however, is that teams have decided to drop back and pass on Washington just 51.6 percent of the time, which is the second-lowest mark in the league. Part of the reason is due to their pass-rush that has picked up a sack on 8.38 percent of dropbacks, which ranks as the sixth-highest mark in the league. Unfortunately, the Cowboys offensive line is crippling in front of Dalton, and he doesn't have the mobility that Prescott did. The two quarterbacks we've seen have the most success against Washington were Kyler Murray and Lamar Jackson, two quarterbacks with insane mobility who both rushed for at least 53 yards and a touchdown. No quarterback has thrown for more than two touchdowns against Washington, so it's tough to say that Dalton even offers much upside after witnessing his offensive line take another hit (Zack Martin) on Monday night. Dalton should be considered a mid-to-low-end QB2 this week.

After what we saw from Dalton last week, there's no way we can put him into our starting lineup. Even if the matchup is fine on paper, Dalton can't be trusted.
