Andy Dalton completed 23-of-31 passes for 332 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals' 32-14, Week 13 win over the Eagles.
It was arguably Dalton's best passing performance of the season, as his 130.0 rating was a new season-best. His two touchdowns went to Brandon LaFell in the back of the end zone from eight yards out, and then Dalton threw a perfectly-lofted 13-yard score to Tyler Eifert for his second score. This Eagles pass defense has been picked apart in recent weeks and isn't anywhere as elite as some metrics would make it look. Dalton will be on the streaming radar next week at the Browns.

Andy Dalton completed 26-of-48 passes for 283 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' Week 13 loss to the Ravens.

He also fumbled four times, losing two. Bengals OC Ken Zampese understandably abandoned a running game that wasn't working, but the results were not positive by resorting to the air. Cincinnati is simply short on passing-game talent at this point, missing both A.J. Green (hamstring) and Gio Bernard (ACL) after losing Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones in the offseason. Dalton will be a mere QB2 play when Cincinnati hosts Philadelphia in Week 13.
Nov 27 - 5:37 PM

Andy Dalton (shoulder) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

The Bengals were just managing Dalton's reps on Wednesday. Missing all-world receiver A.J. Green, Dalton won't be a viable QB2 against the Ravens' stout defense.
Nov 24 - 1:51 PM

Andy Dalton (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Dalton was also limited last Wednesday before getting removed from the injury report. He's not in any danger of missing Week 12. Playing without A.J. Green, Dalton is a QB2 for Sunday's Baltimore matchup.
Nov 23 - 5:02 PM

Andy Dalton completed 24-of-43 passes for 207 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Bengals' Week 11 loss to Buffalo.

He saved his fantasy day with a short touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd and a two-yard rushing score. The Bengals lost A.J. Green to what looks like a multi-week hamstring injury, and they were unable to get Tyler Eifert (3-37-0) heavily involved. Dalton's fantasy outlook is looking bleak heading into a Week 12 visit to Baltimore, where the Ravens have played stout defense all year.
Nov 20 - 4:28 PM

Andy Dalton (shoulder) has been removed from the Week 11 injury report.

Coming off a Monday night loss, the Bengals limited Dalton in Wednesday's practice before he was upgraded to "full" on Thursday and Friday. Dalton is ready to roll against the Bills, but his ceiling has proven low in 2016.
Nov 18 - 1:47 PM

Andy Dalton (shoulder) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

He was limited Wednesday coming off the Monday night game. Dalton was never in danger of missing Week 11. He hasn't thrown more than two touchdowns in a game this year and won't be more than a QB2 against Buffalo on Sunday.
Nov 17 - 2:39 PM

Andy Dalton (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Dalton has taken a beating this season, as only Andrew Luck has been sacked more times. Dalton took another three sacks Monday night against the Giants. He should be fine for Week 11 at home against the Bills as a QB2.
Nov 16 - 3:02 PM

Andy Dalton completed 16-of-29 passes for 204 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Bengals' 21-20, Week 10 loss to the Giants.

Things looked like they were going to go pretty well for Dalton and the Bengals' passing game after the first series when Dalton hit Tyler Eifert for a 71-yard catch-and-run and then finished off the drive with a 13-yard touchdown to A.J. Green. Over 41 percent of Dalton's passing yards came on that first series. The Bengals got in the red zone a couple other times, but settled for a short field goal on one, and Jeremy Hill ran in a nine-yard touchdown the other time. Cincinnati was particularly dreadful on third down, as it didn't convert one until the fourth quarter. Dalton will be a borderline QB1/2 next week at home against the Bills.
Nov 14 - 11:56 PM

Andy Dalton completed 27-of-42 passes for 284 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in the Bengals' Week 8 tie with the Redskins.

Dalton also made things happen on the ground, rushing for a one-yard score on a play action boot in the third quarter, converting a third down late in the fourth quarter, and rushing for a first down in overtime. Unfortunately, his biggest blunder also came on the ground. With the Bengals seemingly driving for a win late in overtime, Dalton fumbled while trying to sneak for a first down, basically sealing the tie. Aside from the fumble, Dalton was not sharp overall. He should have been picked three times by Josh Norman, missed A.J. Green deep on several occasions, missed Green twice more on what could have been a game-sealing drive, and threw a terrible interception which temporarily allowed Washington to take the lead. The good news is Dalton showed his connection with Tyler Eifert is alive and well, and those two should find plenty of success against the Giants after the bye. Dalton will be a borderline QB1 in that matchup.
Oct 30 - 1:54 PM

Andy Dalton completed 19-of-28 passes for 308 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals' Week 7 win over the Browns.

Dalton did the vast majority of his work in the first half, as he was held under 90 yards passing after the break with the Bengals salting the clock away. His first touchdown was a 44-yard hookup with Brandon LaFell on a blown coverage by the Browns, and the second score was a Hail Mary heave to A.J. Green as time expired in the second quarter. Green caught the ball among four Browns defenders, tipping it to himself as he fell to the ground. Dalton still took three sacks and held onto the ball way too long at times. He's already been sacked more times this season than last year. Dalton will be a borderline QB1 next week at home against the Redskins.
Oct 23 - 4:20 PM

Andy Dalton completed 21-of-31 passes for 254 yards and a touchdown while rushing two times for 17 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' Week 6 loss to the Patriots.

Dalton was sharp most of the day as the Bengals executed a ball-control game plan. He started the game 10-of-10 for 93 yards and was 13-of-16 for 143 yards at halftime. The game changed when Dalton took a sack in the end zone in the third quarter, however, and it was all New England from that point on. The Bengals' red-zone woes continued in this game, and Dalton will be as happy as anyone when (if) Tyler Eifert (back) is able to return. Even without Eifert, Dalton should be able to find success at home against the Browns next week.
Oct 16 - 5:19 PM

Andy Dalton completed 29-of-41 passes for 269 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals' Week 5 loss to the Cowboys.

He added six rushes for 34 yards. From a passing standpoint, Dalton's fantasy value was salvaged entirely by a pair of garbage-time touchdowns to Brandon LaFell. Dalton has been a fantasy disappointment so far and will need Tyler Eifert (ankle/back) to return to become a bankable starter. Dalton will be more of a two-quarterback-league option in Week 6 at New England.
Oct 9 - 7:24 PM

Andy Dalton completed 22-of-31 passes for 296 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' 22-7, Week 4 win over the Dolphins.

Going up against a secondary starting Xavien Howard and "Tony Lippett," Dalton fed A.J. Green and watched him eat. Dalton directed 12 of his 31 passes Green's way, and Green turned them into 10/173/1. Dalton and Green's game of pitch and catch was more than enough for the Bengals on a night where the Dolphins looked utterly hopeless on offense. Dalton has only three scores through four starts, but 1,234 yards. Positive regression is coming. He has a tasty Week 5 matchup in the Cowboys.
Sep 29 - 11:23 PM

Andy Dalton completed 21-of-31 passes for 206 yards and one interception in the Bengals' Week 3 loss to the Broncos.

He saved his fantasy day from being a true clunker with 40 rushing yards on six scrambles. Dalton took four sacks against a swarming Denver defense and has managed just two touchdown passes through the Bengals' first three games. The lack of weapons behind A.J. Green in Cincinnati are a big concern for Dalton's fantasy outlook. He'll still be worth streamer consideration when the Bengals host a weak Dolphins pass defense on Thursday night in Week 4.
