Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said he has confidence in QB Andy Dalton but indicated he will need to push Dalton to improve. "He's won a lot of games. You go look at some of the guys who are considered some of the best, they didn't win as many games in a three-year period. Some of them didn't even see the playoffs. This young man has it. What we have to do is make sure that we're helping him to get it done at the level that we all want."

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis is standing by QB Andy Dalton after he turned the ball over three times in the team's Wild Card loss to the San Diego Chargers Sunday, Jan. 5. Dalton is 0-3 with six interceptions and one touchdown in his playoff career, good for a QBR of 17.9. "I believe in his abilities, I believe in his makeup, I believe in his maturity. And I believe in his ability to let the last play go and move on to the next play. That's probably one of his best attributes of all," Lewis said.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton's postseason struggles continued with one touchdown and three interceptions Sunday, Jan. 5, against the San Diego Chargers. That dropped his record in playoffs to 0-3 with one touchdown and five interceptions. Head coach Marvin Lewis, still looking for that first postseason win himself with an 0-5 record, backed Dalton in the tough moments after his toughest loss in 11 seasons when the inevitable question about the future of the quarterback was broached. "I don't have any questions about Andy's role in this thing. We just have to keep working it," Lewis said. "We've got to make sure we're doing everything to help Andy all the time. He's going to be very disappointed in himself today, obviously. He is the football team, and I'm sure he's very disappointed."

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton is confident in the midst of a rough three-game stretch. "I'm confident as ever," Dalton said. "You have to have confidence. For us, as a team, we feel like we're in control of everything and that's where we want to be at this point." He had three touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns in Week 11 but compiled just 93 yards passing for a 48.1 percent completion rating, a 62.7 passer rating and a career-low 3.7 QBR rating. Dalton has tossed at least one interception in his last four games, including eight in his last three.
Fantasy Tip: Dalton has shown signs of taking the next step this year, only to take two steps back. With the right matchup, he's a midrange QB1, but he's better left as a capable backup in your fantasy leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green finished the Week 10 game against the Baltimore Ravens with eight receptions for 151 yards and a touchdown. With no time remaining in regulation, Bengals QB Andy Dalton heaved up a desperation prayer that was answered by Green. Ravens SS James Ihedigbo inexplicably batted the ball up into the air and right to Green, who was standing alone in the back of the end zone for the 51-yard touchdown. It marked Green's fifth consecutive 100-yard game, a franchise record.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners everywhere need to send a thank you note to Ihedigbo, as if he did not touch the ball or simply bats it down, the game ends and fantasy owners get far fewer points.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton threw a career-high five touchdown passes in Week 8 against the New York Jets. He completed 19 of his 30 passes for 325 yards, and four of his TD passes went to WR Marvin Jones. Dalton now has three straight 300-yard passing games with at least three TD passes for the first time in his career.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton had a great rhythm in the first two days of training camp but forced throws into coverage over the next few practices. "The way he's commanded the offense, he knows it's his team now," WR A.J. Green said.
Fantasy Tip: Dalton is looking to make strides in his third season in the league, and he has plenty of offensive weapons around him to take the next leap forward, including perhaps the most gifted receiver in the league in Green. He won't be an elite QB1 by any means, but most weeks he should approach low-end No. 1 stats.
