Bengals QB Andy Dalton held to one passing TD Week 12
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/23/14) Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton threw one touchdown and one interception during a 22-13 win Week 12 at Houston. Dalton completed 24 of 35 passes for 233 yards, while rushing for 6 yards on seven carries.
Dalton's lone touchdown pass came on the team's second offensive drive -- a 6-yard completion to wide receiver Mohamed Sanu. Dalton's favorite target on the afternoon was star receiver A.J. Green, who caught a career-high 12 passes for 121 yards.
Dalton has had more games this season with one or no passing touchdowns (seven) than he has had multiple passing touchdowns (four). The Bengals are back in action Week 13 at Tampa Bay.
Bengals QB Andy Dalton bounces back with three-TD game
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(11/16/14) Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton bounced back from an abysmal performance his last time out, firing three touchdown passes to lead his team to a 27-10 victory over the Saints in Week 11.
Dalton hooked up with Jermaine Gresham for a 12-yard touchdown in the opening quarter, followed by a 1-yard score to Gresham again in the third quarter. He kept rolling with a 24-yard strike to A.J. Green in the end zone during the fourth quarter.
Dalton compiled 220 yards through the air while completing 16 of 22 passes. He finished the game with three touchdowns, no interceptions and one sack. Last week, Dalton registered a 2.0 passer rating. This week, he got back on track and posted a 143.9 rating.
Dalton has 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions on the year. He'll look to build off his recent performance Week 12 at Houston.
Bengals QB Andy Dalton held to 86 yards, throws three INTs
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(11/6/14) Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton endured an awful performance Thursday, completing just 10 of his 33 pass attempts for 86 yards with no touchdowns and three interceptions in his team's 24-3 loss to the Browns in Week 10.
Dalton was simply terrible on the field Thursday and had at least one more easy interception dropped by the defense while failing to move the ball with any consistency despite a solid effort by the running game. He ended up getting benched late in the fourth quarter with his team down three scores, though he's in no danger of the Bengals removing him from the starter role permanently.
Dalton had delivered solid numbers coming into Week 10, completing nearly 65 percent of his passes while averaging 7.6 yards per attempt, but he's been held without a passing touchdown in three of his last four games. He'll hope to bounce back considerably in New Orleans in Week 11.
Andy Dalton hoping to roll through Browns
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(11/5/14) Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has struggled to put up big numbers this season, and not having his full complement of weapons hasn't help. With A.J. Green's health improving, things could be turning around for him.
Dalton tossed a pair of touchdowns and finished with 18 Fantasy points in Week 9, and that was with Green played a little over half the team's snaps. Green's role is expected to be expanded in Week 10 against the Browns Thursday, and that could lead to good things for Dalton.
Of Dalton's three two-touchdown games this season, Green has been around for both, and has one touchdown in each game so far. The good news, Dalton has Green around and is set to take on a team he has enjoyed some success against, as he has three games of three touchdowns in his career against the Browns. They have been pretty tough for opposing quarterbacks overall this season, but did allow Mike Glennon and Charlie Whitehurst to log multi-TD games against them.
This isn't a great matchup for Dalton, who has been a pretty iffy Fantasy play most weeks. Jamey Eisenberg is buying into him, however, ranking him 11th among quarterbacks for the week; Dave Richard is less bullish, slotting Dalton in 17th for Week 10. He should be viewed as a risky matchup, though one with some upside.
Andy Dalton throws two TDs, two INTs in Week 9 victory
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(11/2/14) Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton delivered an up-and-down performance in Sunday's 33-23 win over the Jaguars. Dalton completed 19 of 31 throws for 233 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions while posting a 79.1 rating.
It was the third time in the past four games that Dalton committed two turnovers. He's yet to produce a three-touchdown game this year.
Dalton hit Mohamed Sanu with a 19-yard score in the second quarter and A.J. Green for an 18-yard score in the fourth quarter. But with his team protecting a late lead, Dalton threw a pass that bounced off left tackle Andrew Whitworth and got picked off.

|Andy Dalton set career-highs in passing yards (4,293), passing touchdowns (33) and rushing yards (183) en route to finishing as Fantasy's fourth-best quarterback last season. So why isn't he getting more love from Fantasy owners this season? It's a combination of perception and offensive change coming to Cincinnati in 2014. First the change: New offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said he wants to take the pressure off of Dalton and has a track record of effectively running the football. That means Dalton won't attempt 586 passes like he did last year and might not exceed his 2013 totals. As for the perception, many think Dalton simply isn't great for Fantasy because of his inconsistency. Of the Top 12 quarterbacks last season Dalton finished tied for third in fewest games with 20-plus Fantasy points with seven. Further showing his production swings, he had five games with 30-plus points and another five between 18 and 23 points. His remaining six games were for 17 points or less. Dalton tends to produce in spurts and probably will continue having three- and four-game streaks of massive Fantasy points followed by some cold spells. If you're up for this roller coaster ride then earmark a mid- to late-round pick for Dalton, but most Fantasy owners will pony up a pick for him either as a backup or as part of a two-man platoon.
