Bengals | Jox Mixon's versatility praised

Thu, 18 May 2017 18:34:49 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon's versatility will make it harder for defenses to know what the offense is doing, according to QB Andy Dalton.

Fantasy Tip: Mixon could displace Jeremy Hill for touches sooner rather than later, and he could become a solid flex play by the end of the year. Draft him as a high-upside RB4, and grab him in the first round in rookie drafts.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell expects more

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 19:48:04 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell said he feels he will be even better in 2017 because he is already familiar with QB Andy Dalton and the offense.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell finished with 862 yards and six touchdowns in his first year in Cincinnati, and if the Bengals don't add any more receivers this offseason, he should be a useful WR4.

Bengals | Andy Dalton has solid outing

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 13:54:48 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton went 18-for-28 for 226 yards and one touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton finishes the 2016 season with more than 4,000 yards but threw only 18 touchdowns in 16 games. He should be the starting quarterback again next season and can be a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Bengals | Andy Dalton has 268 yards

Sun, 25 Dec 2016 00:45:46 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton threw 28-for-41 for 268 yards, one touchdown and one interception in a 12-10 loss to the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton's completion numbers early on were excellent, but he wasn't getting much yardage. The bulk of his effective work came in the second half. It's only fair to note Houston wasn't much better, but Dalton's struggles have kind of removed the QB1 label for the time being. If you start Dalton, you better have another very effective QB on your roster.

Bengals | Andy Dalton effective in week 14

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 13:37:55 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton was 20-for-28 for 180 yards and two touchdowns in a 23-10 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Dec. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton didn't need to be overpowering, as the Bengals were going up against Cleveland in a rivalry game. Too bad the Browns are hamstrung on both offense and defense. Dalton was as effective as he could be and remains a decent option going forward.

Bengals | Andy Dalton tosses pair of TDs

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 20:30:31 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Andy Dalton completed 23 of his 31 pass attempts for 332 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 13 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He also rushed twice for nine yards.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton fared pretty well against a good pass defense, especially considering he continues to operate the offense without his biggest weapon A.J. Green. He should continue his solid play in Week 14 against a poor Cleveland Browns pass defense, assuming weather isn't a factor.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton is a low QB1 but plays better as a QB2. He went over 3,000 yards in this game and has 12 touchdowns and just six interceptions. Dalton is the type of QB that gets the job done without too much flash or pizzazz.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton has been held to under 210 yards in each of the last two games and has three touchdowns and four interceptions in the last three games. Dalton will be facing a solid Baltimore Ravens defense in Week 12 and probably should be avoided since A.J. Green is sidelined.

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 14:41:37 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton has thrown for at least 250 yards in five of the last six games and has at least one touchdown in all but one game this season. He will be facing a solid Buffalo Bills defense in Week 11 but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues or a bye week replacement.

Bengals | Andy Dalton has full practice

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 16:22:23 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: He was limited in practice on Wednesday, but all appears to be well for Cincinnati's Red Rifle. Dalton has enjoyed a solid season up to this point, though he hasn't really churned out many strong performances. In fact, he's topped over 300 passing yards just once since Week 2, while also having no games this season with more than two passing touchdowns. For that reason, he's mostly just a high-end QB2.

Bengals | Andy Dalton limited Wednesday

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 13:10:45 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 16, with a right shoulder injury.

Fantasy Tip: It's Dalton's throwing shoulder, so keep a closer eye on his status this week. The Buffalo Bills have been better than average against quarterbacks this year, so if there is a better option in one's lineup then that might be the more advisable route.

Bengals | Andy Dalton quiet in second half

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 20:45:22 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 16 of his 29 pass attempts for 204 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 10 game against the New York Giants. He also ran once for 15 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton had a decent first half, but was very quiet in the second half for fantasy owners. He'll look to rebound in Week 11 against Buffalo at home. He remains a low-end QB1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton has thrown for eight touchdowns and one interception over the last five games and has thrown for at least 250 yards in seven of his eight games this season. He is scheduled to face the New York Giants in Week 10 and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 13:59:21 -0700

Fantasy Tip: The Red Rifle opened the season with a pair of 366-yard passing performances, but he has just four touchdown strikes and zero 300-yard games over his past four outings. He remains more of a high-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues.

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 20:44:46 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 29 of his 41 pass attempts for 269 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 5 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He also ran six times for 34 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton started out slowly, as the team fell behind 28-0 after three quarters. He rebounded in the fourth quarter with the team abandoning the run, salvaging the stat line by playing catch up. He remains a low-end QB1 or must-start QB2 in most fantasy leagues.

Bengals | Efficient night for Andy Dalton

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 20:39:16 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 22 of his 31 pass attempts for 296 yards and a touchdown in a 22-7 win over the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton is putting up plenty of yards, but he has yet to record a multi-touchdown game. He is a quality QB2 right now, but he could enjoy a nice boost in value if Tyler Eifert's return results in improved results in the red zone.

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 14:49:30 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton threw for 206 yards and an interception Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-17 loss to the Denver Broncos.

Bengals | Andy Dalton hobbled after loss

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 19:39:06 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (ankle) was hobbled and limping in the locker room after the Week 2 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers due to an ankle issue.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton has passed for exactly 366 yards with one TD pass in both Week 1 and Week 2, so he would be a huge loss for fantasy owners if he is forced to miss any time. Stay tuned.

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 21:11:35 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed six of his 10 passes for 77 yards and a touchdown in a 26-21 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Turnover among his receiving corps and an injury to Tyler Eifert could hurt his numbers a bit, but Dalton should still be one of the better QB2 options and a potential starter against friendly matchups.

Bengals | Tyler Boyd making big strides

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 20:30:00 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd has improved dramatically from spring practices to training camp, according to his quarterback. "He's taken a huge jump from OTAs to camp, he's made some tough catches and has been impressive," QB Andy Dalton said Monday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Boyd is expected to serve as the starter in the slot, and he is likely in line for plenty of playing time right off the bat. Look to Boyd as a nice late-round WR4/5 or flex play with some upside in most standard fantasy formats.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell picking up offense

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 19:01:18 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell has picked up the offense quickly, QB Andy Dalton said, and LaFell said he is ready to take advantage if defenses double team WR A.J. Green.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell has a chance to open the year as Cincinnati's No. 2 receiver, and he is worth grabbing in the later rounds of drafts in case he runs with the role.

Bengals | Andy Dalton receives praise

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 15:50:15 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton has been better than advertised so far this offseason, according to WR Brandon LaFell. LaFell noted Dalton's ball placement, accuracy, quick release and command of the huddle as factors that have especially been impressive.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton has put together a nice career so far, but he still leaves something to be desire from a fantasy perspective, mainly more touchdowns. He's comfortably in QB2 territory heading into the 2016 season.

Bengals | A.J. Green ready to carry offense

Fri, 27 May 2016 20:35:39 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said he knows that the offense is only going to go as far as he and QB Andy Dalton can take it in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Green has been one of the steadiest receivers since breaking into the league, and losing Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu in free agency should lead to even more looks for Green. He is a sure-fire WR1.

Bengals | Andy Dalton to boost Tyler Boyd's game?

Thu, 19 May 2016 19:16:45 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd said he believes playing with QB Andy Dalton will help him elevate his performance. "With him throwing me to open space, making me catch it away from defenders, making it a lot easier for me I feel like it'll just take my game to a whole other level than what I think it's already at," Boyd said. "It'll completely change me."

Fantasy Tip: Boyd will be asked to play a big role as a rookie, and he is a solid option to target in the final rounds of standard drafts. In rookie drafts, he is worth considering in the first round.

Bengals | Andy Dalton talks up Josh Doctson

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 18:43:12 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton said he worked out with TCU WR Josh Doctson and believes Doctson will be successful for any team that drafts him.

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals need a receiver after losing Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu this offseason, and if Doctson lands in Cincinnati, he would be worth a shot in the later rounds.

Bengals | Andy Dalton healthy

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 15:52:57 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) said he's fully healed from his thumb injury.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton has yet to duplicate his 2013 with 4,293 yards and 33 touchdowns. He's still an efficient passer, completing 66.1% of his passes last year, but does he still have untapped potential? He'll be in the low-end QB1 mix in fantasy.

Bengals | Andy Dalton throwing without restrictions

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 09:39:31 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) is throwing the ball again and has no restrictions with his thumb, and he has visited with passing specialist Tom House once already this offseason. Dalton isn't worried about the loss of WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu in free agency this year.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton still has A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert as his top two receiving targets, so that's not too shabby. Brandon LaFell will likely become the No. 3 option. Expected to be fully healthy for Week 1, Dalton proved he is QB1 worthy in fantasy leagues, albeit at the lower end of the starting quarterback spectrum.

Bengals | Andy Dalton to help install offense

Sun, 06 Mar 2016 17:27:19 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton has been asked to help the rest of the team understand the system of offensive coordinator Ken Zampese, who has spent the last five seasons as Dalton's quarterbacks coach.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton will have a solid line in front of him and dangerous weapons to throw to again in 2016, and he should finish the year as a QB1.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) is on track in his rehab, and he is expected to be ready for offseason training activities (OTAs), according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals are taking their time with Dalton's injury, and they have all the time in the world. Unless he suffers some sort of setback, he should be fully healthy for the start of the 2016 season. Before his injury last year, he proved he can be a capable midrange QB1 for fantasy.

Bengals | Andy Dalton not throwing yet

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 14:40:57 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) said he is able to throw, but will hold off on doing so for a little bit longer. "Not throwing yet because we are being very conservative with it," Dalton said. "I feel like I can throw but no reason to push anything right now. I have plenty of time now to get 100%."

Fantasy Tip: It's a wise move by Dalton and the Bengals to take their time with Dalton's injury. He will more than likely be ready for offseason activities. As long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks, consider him a QB1 for next season.

Mon, 11 Jan 2016 15:10:26 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) will have a normal offseason despite his thumb injury, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton probably will be on the field when the team starts their offseason workouts in a few months. Dalton had a terrific 2015 season and could be a No. 1 quarterback in some leagues next season.

Bengals | Andy Dalton ready next week?

Sat, 09 Jan 2016 12:21:26 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton is not a guarantee to play next week if the Bengals win. Dalton has not thrown yet, and the Bengals won't know if he'll practice until Tuesday, Jan. 12, or Wednesday, Jan 13.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton's status won't matter if the Bengals can't beat the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight. AJ McCarron ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) will start, but he's not a great starting fantasy quarterback despite his relatively cheap price.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) is a long shot to play in the wild-card tilt against the Pittsburgh Steelers Saturday. AJ McCarron ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is in line for his fourth start and has a decent matchup against one of the weakest secondaries in the postseason. Consider McCarron as a sleeper play if you want to save some money at QB.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) is not taking part in practice Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) had the cast removed from his thumb Monday, but he's still unlikely to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers on wild-card weekend. AJ McCarron ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) almost threw for 300 yards in a relief effort of Dalton last time against Pittsburgh, and he's a sleeper candidate against one of the weaker secondaries in the postseason.

Bengals | Andy Dalton makes brief appearance

Tue, 05 Jan 2016 20:50:35 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) was able to throw two passes in practice Tuesday, Jan. 5, but head coach Marvin Lewis said QB A.J. McCarron remains the team's starting quarterback heading into the AFC Wild-Card Game Saturday, Jan. 9, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) would be a risky FantasyScore play if he was able to return given his poor playoff performances in the fast, rust factor after a long layoff and a difficult opponent which knows him well. McCarron ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has never started a playoff game, and he isn't a recommended option, either.

Bengals | Cincy planning to use AJ McCarron

Tue, 05 Jan 2016 09:09:57 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said Monday, Jan. 4, that the Bengals would prepare during the week as if QB AJ McCarron would start the wild card game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Saturday, Jan. 9, with QB Andy Dalton's (thumb) status up in the air. McCarron said he'll be more confident this weekend if he's forced to face the Steelers for the second time.

Fantasy Tip: McCarron has looked pretty good while replacing Dalton for three full games, and he's yet to throw an interception. The Steelers can be beat through the air, so if McCarron makes another start this weekend, he is a deep sleeper QB worth considering on FantasyScore.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) will see a hand specialist Monday, Jan. 4, and he is hoping to have the cast around his right thumb removed.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton won't play in the season finale against the Baltimore Ravens, but there is still a chance he could return for the playoffs. Monday's appointment will likely go a long way to deciding his timetable for a return.
