11/23/2014 7:03:00 PM
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton had a decent afternoon on Sunday.
Insight: He was 24-of-35 for 233 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Owners would like to see one more score or two.
11/16/2014 7:02:00 PM
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton had a big bounceback game on Sunday.
Insight: Dalton was 16-for-22 with 220 yards and three touchdown passes as Cincinnati defeat New Orleans, 27-10, in the Super Dome. Dalton remains a decent QB1 as long as he isn't playing in primetime.
Cold11/7/2014 9:28:00 AM
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was horrible in the game against Cleveland.
Insight: There is no other way to describe a 10-of-33 for 86 yards and three interception night. This season has been a disaster for Dalton who threw for 268.5 ypg and 33 TDs last season, but is averaging just 217.8 ypg in 2014 with eight touchdowns and nine interceptions.
11/2/2014 5:32:00 PM
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton had an up-and-down game against the Jaguars on Sunday.
Insight: Dalton was a smart play at home against the Jaguars, but he did a very poor job of taking care of the ball. He threw two interceptions and nearly had one or two other turnovers. He also completed some nice deep passes to Mohamed Sanu and A.J. Green for touchdowns. Dalton is a decent play in an emergence, but it would be best to find another quarterback for consistent production.
10/26/2014 6:55:00 PM
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton threw for 266 yards in Sunday's win over Baltimore.
Insight: He had a one-yard rushing touchdown, along with an interception and a fumble lost. Dalton is no more than a QB2 for the rest of 2014.
10/19/2014 5:06:00 PM
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was 18-for-38 for 126 yards on Sunday against the Colts.
Insight: Cincinnati was shutout in Indianapolis, so no one on offense did well. The Bengals were obviously effected by the absence of A.J. Green, but not being able to establish the running game against the Colts is more concerning. Dalton has proved throughout his career that his success hinges on an effective rushing attack.
10/12/2014 5:48:00 PM
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton threw for 323 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions Sunday against Carolina.
Insight: It was a solid outing for Dalton, as he navigated the Bengals into field goal range at the end of overtime, only to see Mike Nugent miss the attempt. Dalton will be a borderline QB1 moving forward.
10/6/2014 10:32:00 AM
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was just 15-of-24 for 204 yards and two touchdowns.
Insight: Respectable numbers considering the Bengals only had the ball for 21 minutes, but most of the yards and the touchdowns came after the game was decided - a.k.a. garbage time.
9/21/2014 6:21:00 PM
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton makes impact in receiving game.
Insight: While he was 15-of-23 for only 169 yards and one interception, Dalton's big highlight came on a trick play, when he caught a pass from Mohamed Sanu, and ran the ball 18 yards into the end zone, for his first career TD reception. With Cincinnati leading big early, Dalton was able to just manage the game. He should bounce back next time out.
9/16/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has played mistake-free football over the first two games this season, but hasn't posted great fantasy numbers.
Insight: He's thrown for just one touchdown in each game while averaging 276.5 ypg. He could be without A.J. Green (toe) in Week 3 in addition to already sidelined Marvin Jones (foot) which may force the Bengals to feature the ground game.
8/17/2014 1:28:00 PM
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton looked extremely sharp in Cincinnati's second preseason game.
Insight: He was 8-for-8 for 144 yards and a score. He can't justify his $115 million contract in preseason, but if he plays like this when they start playing for real he'll be worth every penny.
8/4/2014 11:08:00 AM
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has agreed to a deal to keep him in Cincinnati through 2020.
Insight: While other quarterbacks garnered lots of attention, Dalton put up sneaky good numbers last season - 4,296 yards, 33 passing TDs, 2 rushing TDs. He's still yet to win an NFL playoff game, but he was very good to fantasy owners, particularly his Week 16 effort (27-for-38, 366 yards, 4 TDs) in what for many was the fantasy championship round.
Cold1/5/2014 7:29:00 PM
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton wasn't able to exorcise his playoff demons Sunday in an embarrassing loss to the Chargers.
Insight: Dalton was picked off twice and lost a fumble. He was also sacked three times and finished with a 67.0 QB rating. Dalton (29-for-51, 334 yards) is 0-3 in his career in the postseason. Cincinnati hasn't won a playoff game since 1991.
12/29/2013 6:09:00 PM
Description: Cincinnati QB Andy Dalton set two team records Sunday in a win over Baltimore.
Insight: Dalton now holds the Bengals' records for touchdowns (33) and yards (4,296) in a season. Unfortunately, he also threw four interceptions on Sunday, a new career-high. Dalton will finish the year with an 88.8 rating on 586 passing attempts.
Hot12/22/2013 5:49:00 PM
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton had a field day against the Vikings in Week 16, throwing for 366 yards and four touchdowns with zero turnovers.
Insight: The Vikings got virtually no pressure on Dalton and didn't hit him at all until the fourth quarter. Dalton now has a career-high 4,015 yards and 31 passing touchdowns this season.
Hot10/27/2013 7:31:00 PM
Description: Bengals QB Andy Dalton had a monster game Sunday versus the Jets.
Insight: Dalton torched New York for a season-high five touchdowns. Four of those touchdowns went to Marvin Jones. Dalton has now thrown for over 300 yards in each of his last three contests. That's how many times Dalton threw for 300 yards all of last season.
Hot10/20/2013 5:29:00 PM
Description: Cincinnati signal-caller Andy Dalton has thrown for 709 yards and six touchdowns over his last two games.
Insight: The inconsistent QB had zero touchdowns in the two weeks prior. He'll play the Jets in Week 8 and the Dolphins in Week 9; 12 teams -- Chicago, Indianapolis, Tennessee, San Diego, Baltimore, Houston, Denver, New York Giants, Arizona, San Francisco, Jacksonville and Detroit -- have byes over those two weeks, so fantasy owners may want to roll with Dalton as a fill-in.
10/13/2013 7:21:00 PM
Description: Fantasy owners who rolled with Andy Dalton on Sunday were rewarded with 337 passing yards and three touchdowns.
Insight: Sunday was Dalton's first 300-yard game in almost a year (October 14, 2012 versus Cleveland). We wouldn't expect him to have a performance like this every time out but Dalton is certainly capable of putting up big numbers.
Cold1/5/2013 9:32:00 PM
Description: Cincinnati QB Andy Dalton struggled in Saturday's loss to Houston. He finished the afternoon with just 127 yards on 14-of-30 passing.
Insight: Dalton also threw an interception. In two career playoff games, Dalton has thrown zero touchdowns and four interceptions for a QB rating of 48.6. Both of those games were against the Texans.
Cold12/30/2012 3:18:00 PM
Description: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is done for the day. Bruce Gradkowski has taken over as Cincinnati prepares for the playoffs.
Insight: Dalton had 78 yards and a touchdown Sunday, at least getting something for fantasy owners who left him in the lineup even though the Bengals had nothing to play for. He'll finish a strong sophomore campaign with 3,669 passing yards, 27 passing touchdowns, 16 interceptions and four rushing touchdowns.
