Bengals | Andy Dalton tosses two scores

Thu, 09 Aug 2018 18:24:02 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed six of his eight pass attempts for 103 yards, two touchdowns and an interception against the Chicago Bears in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 9.

Fantasy Tip: With a healthier supporting cast and an improved offensive line, Dalton could sneak back into QB1 territory in 2018. At worst, he's a solid fantasy backup.

Bengals | Andy Dalton in top shape

Thu, 21 Jun 2018 20:03:20 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton has the "body of an All-Pro" and is in great shape, according to Gil Brandt of NFL.com.

Fantasy Tip: We may have already seen Dalton's best years, but if offseason upgrades to the offensive line work out, he could certainly be one of the better QB2 options in 2018.

Bengals | Andy Dalton excited to get new playbook

Thu, 12 Apr 2018 19:37:18 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton is looking forward to the new playbook that is being prepared by offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, who has spent this offseason revamping the old one after joining the club early on last season. "The sense I'm getting is there is going to be a lot of change and a lot of learning, which is a good thing," Dalton said. "I think it's good to challenge yourself and kind of refresh yourself on what you're doing. When you're hearing the same thing for seven straight years, it can be mundane and you already know it. Now it's new and fresh."

Fantasy Tip: Dalton isn't exactly coming off a strong year, posting an 86.6 passer rating and logging the second-fewest passing yards of his career. The team did improve overall, though, after Lazor came aboard, so there is some hope that his first offseason with the club can lead to bigger things next season. Regardless, Dalton is a QB2 in most formats entering the 2018 campaign.

Bengals | CIN not looking to re-do Andy Dalton deal

Fri, 30 Mar 2018 07:34:07 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton is unlikely to receive an extension this year, according to vice president Troy Blackburn. Dalton is the 17th highest-paid quarterback, according to Spotrac.com. "We didn't sign the (Dalton) deal because we thought it was a good deal. At the time it was an expensive deal. It was a heavy lift," Blackburn said. "We did it because Andy was a winning starting quarterback in the National Football League, he had demonstrated that."

Fantasy Tip: Dalton was 16th in fantasy points at the position last season, and his fantasy appeal has leveled off. He's a consistent, yet unspectacular backup.

Bengals | Andy Dalton throws two INTs

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 13:08:10 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton went 11-for-22 for 113 yards and two interceptions against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals did not have much success on offense against the Vikings, and Dalton was benched in the blowout. He will be facing the Detroit Lions next week and should not be a starting option in fantasy leagues.

Bengals | Andy Dalton lifted late in blowout

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 15:31:34 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 14 of his past 29 pass attempts for 141 yards, one touchdowns and an interception in the Week 14 game against the Chicago Bears. He was lifted in the second half for QB A.J. McCarron with a lopsided score.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton's four game streak with two or more passing touchdowns came to an end, and his struggles are likely to continue with a difficult road game in Week 15 in Minnesota.

Bengals | Andy Dalton solid in MNF defeat

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 21:50:45 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 21-of-36 passes for 234 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the team's Week 13 loss Monday, Dec. 4, against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also rushed twice for 19 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Remember those whispers in the beginning of the season how the Bengals should bench Dalton for AJ McCarron? Well, seemingly quietly, the Red Rifle has bounced back nicely from that troubling start, and he's amassed a terrific stretch since the end of October, with 11 touchdowns compared to zero interceptions over his last six games. At the end of the day, though, he's not the ideal QB1 for one-quarterback formats, but is certainly a high-end QB2.

Bengals | Andy Dalton tosses two TDs in win

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 13:43:52 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 18 of his 28 pass attempts for 214 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 12 game against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton also rushed 26 yards on four carries in the victory. He has pieced together a three-game streak with at least two scoring strikes, and he has two or more TD passes in five of his past six overall. He'll look to keep up the good work in Week 13 against the Steelers on Monday night.
