Andy Dalton said he's looking forward to the Bengals' new revamped playbook.
Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor reportedly spent the offseason adjusting Cincinnati's playbook. "The sense I’m getting is there is going to be a lot of change and a lot of learning," Dalton said. "I think we’re going to be multiple." Lazor replaced Ken Zampese after the Bengals were outscored 33-9 through two games last season. It's great for Dalton's fantasy outlook that, with Lazor calling plays, Cincinnati recorded the fifth-highest passing rate (56%) inside the five-yard line. The Bengals' offense will continue to run through A.J. Green no matter the ensuing changes. Apr 12 - 9:38 PM

Bengals VP Troy Blackburn says the team doesn’t think they need to re-do Andy Dalton's deal at this time.

"We don’t think this is the time right now," Blackburn continued. "What we are going to focus on right now is building the best team for 2018 we possibly can." Dalton signed a seven-year, $97.09 million contract in 2014, so there's still time for the Bengals front office to come around on another extension. He's due $13.9 million in 2018, a relatively cheap number since quarterback extensions have ballooned since he initially signed. Dalton will be 31 in October.

Andy Dalton completed 23-of-44 passes for 222 yards and three touchdowns in Week 17 against the Ravens.

It's a high note on a down year for Dalton, who completed 59 percent of his passes for 3,320 yards and a 25:12 TD/INT ratio. Dalton had just two touchdowns over his last three games going into Week 17. With a new coordinating staff likely coming in, Dalton could be a rebound candidate, but there’s not a ton to get excited about. Dalton is signed though 2019.

Andy Dalton completed 27-of-41 passes for 238 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Bengals' Week 16 win over the Lions.

Dalton did just enough to get the win, but missed multiple easy throws and crumbled under pressure. His touchdown came on a play-action crossing route to TE C.J. Uzomah. He threw an interception under pressure from his back foot and resulted in an easy pick for the Lions. Dalton shouldn't be started in Week 17 against the Ravens.
Sun, Dec 24, 2017 04:19:00 PM

Andy Dalton completed 11-of-22 passes for 113 yards and two interceptions in the Bengals' Week 15 loss to the Vikings.

Dalton was pulled for the second week in a row as the Bengals officially threw in the towel. Dalton struggled to get anything going and missed multiple easy passes early on. His first interception was a throw into triple coverage in the middle of the field and resulted in a pick-six. His second interception was another bad throw over the middle. All Bengals players should be avoided in fantasy for the time being.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 04:02:00 PM

Andy Dalton completed 14-of-29 passes for 141 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Bengals' Week 14 loss to the Bears.

He was pulled for A.J. McCarron with 4:30 left and the Bengals trailing 33-7 in a game where their defense got leveled by the Bears' running game. Cincinnati's pass catchers struggled to get open against Chicago's underrated pass defense, and Dalton couldn't sustain drives without the benefit of any easy completions. Dalton will be a low-end two-quarterback-league play when the Bengals visit the Vikings next.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 04:00:00 PM

Andy Dalton completed 21-of-36 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals' 23-20, Week 13 loss to the Steelers.

The Bengals played arguably their best half of football in years in the first 30 minutes, taking a 17-3 lead to the locker room. Dalton was firing on all cylinders, hooking up with A.J. Green seven times for 77 yards and two touchdowns before the break. But the offense came out completely flat after the half. Green went catch-less on four targets, and Dalton managed just 61 yards passing over the final two frames, as the Bengals blew a 17-point lead. Dalton will be a mid-range QB2 next week at home against the Bears.

Andy Dalton completed 18-of-28 passes for 214 yards and two touchdowns with 26 rushing on four carries in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Browns.

Dalton wasn't required to do much, but still delivered against Cleveland, a team he has consistently found success against. He has now thrown multiple touchdown passes in six straight games against the Browns, the longest such streak a quarterback has had against Cleveland in the franchise history for the Browns. Dalton threw an 8-yard touchdown to Tyler Boyd on the opening drive of the game and then a 1-yard touchdown to Tyler Kroft on the opening drive of the third quarter. Dalton has now thrown at least two touchdown passes in five of past six games and will be a QB2 option next week against the Steelers.

Andy Dalton completed 15-of-25 passes for 154 yards and three touchdowns while notching four yards on three carries Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 11 win over the Broncos.

It wasn’t a big yardage day for Dalton, which was probably to be expected against a tough Broncos secondary. That being said, Dalton did well to lead three touchdown drives including two in the first half. He zipped a one-yard touchdown to Tyler Kroft off a play-action pass in the first quarter before threading the needle on a 29-yard score to Alex Erickson early in the second frame. Later he recognized a mismatch with A.J. Green, who beat Bradley Roby for an 18-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Dalton has now gone his last four games without throwing an interception after being picked off eight times over his first six outings. He gets the Browns at home in Week 12.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 09:20:00 PM

Andy Dalton completed 20-of-35 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns in Week 10 against the Titans.

Dalton played fairly well on early downs but struggled mightily on 3rd downs as the Bengals converted only 1-of-10 attempts on the day. The Bengals were more than doubled in time-of-possession, limiting the overall output of the Bengals offense. A big chunk of Dalton's yards came on two long touchdowns, a 37-yard pass to Brandon LaFell early in the game and a 70-yard strike to A.J. Green in the fourth quarter. Dalton shouldn't be started in Week 11 against the Broncos.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 05:23:00 PM

Andy Dalton completed 10-of-18 passes for 136 yards in Week 9 against the Jaguars.

Dalton was shut down against Jacksonville's elite secondary. He didn't have any supporting cast after A.J. Green got ejected at the end of the first half. With Green potentially looking at a suspension. Dalton should be avoided for a Week 10 matchup with Tennessee.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 04:02:00 PM

Andy Dalton completed 17-of-29 passes for 243 yards with two touchdowns while delivering 10 yards on three carries Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 8 win over the Colts.

While Dalton didn’t stuff the stat sheet like many were expecting, he kept the mistakes to a minimum and extended several plays with his feet. He showed a puzzling lack of chemistry with A.J. Green (three-of-eight for 27 yards), though the two did hook up for an eight-yard touchdown late in the first half. Dalton’s second and final TD came on a 25-yard strike to Josh Malone in the third quarter. His longest play came on a 67-yard completion to Joe Mixon, though Mixon did most of the work. If Dalton couldn’t light it up in a cake home matchup against Indy, we wouldn’t have much faith in him next week on the road against Jacksonville’s elite secondary.

Andy Dalton completed 17-of-30 passes for 140 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Bengals' Week 7 loss to the Steelers.

Dalton struggled under pressure as the Bengals' offensive line was a big mismatch for the Steelers' pass rush. He was sacked four times and pressured on many key 3rd downs, playing a part in the Bengals 27 percent 3rd down conversion rate. Dalton's interceptions both came from bouncing off his receivers hands and while neither were great throws, having them intercepted was unlucky. Despite flashing in coach Bill Lazor's new offensive scheme he's still wildly inconsistent.
Sun, Oct 22, 2017 07:35:00 PM

Andy Dalton completed 22-of-36 passes for 328 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 5 win over Buffalo.

It was another strong game from Dalton despite the turnovers. Dalton locked on to A.J. Green, who scored a 77-yard touchdown. He injured his ankle in the first half, but played with it heavily taped. Dalton has now led the Bengals to two straight wins after a shaky start. The Bengals are on their bye in Week 6.
Sun, Oct 8, 2017 04:19:00 PM

Andy Dalton completed 25-of-30 passes for 286 yards and four touchdowns, adding 29 rushing yards on four carries in the Bengals' Week 4 win versus the Browns.

It was the first time Dalton has thrown four touchdowns in a game since Week 16, 2013 and his 83.3 percent completion rate was the highest in his career. Dalton has now thrown 13 touchdowns and zero interceptions over his past five games versus the Browns. After a brutal start to the season, Dalton has now completed 46-of-57 passes (80.7 percent) for 498 yards with six touchdowns and zero interceptions the past two weeks. Despite the turnaround, Dalton will still be considered a QB2 coming into Week 5 against a surprisingly stiff Buffalo pass defense.
