|Andy Dalton does OK without A.J. Green |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/14/14) Of Andy Dalton's 301 passing yards in Week 1, 131 went to A.J. Green. So you'd think the fourth-year quarterback would be in trouble when his Bengals teammate went down with a foot injury on the first drive of the game Week 2 against Atlanta, before he even had a chance to target the star wide receiver.
But that wasn't the case. Against a defense that entered the day ranked 25th against the pass, Dalton completed 15 of 23 passes for 252 yards. He made especially good use of elusive running back Giovani Bernard, twice dumping it off to him for big gains on what appeared to be broken plays. The first went for 24 yards, the second for 46. Both came in the second quarter
Dalton had only one touchdown pass, but it was impressive one. With the Falcons entire front seven bearing down on him on an all-out blitz early in the third quarter, he threw a strike to Mohamed Sanu down the middle of the field, giving the receiver plenty of room to take it all the way for a 76-yard score.
Dalton will look to keep it going, with or without Green, in Week 3, but he'll be in for more of a challenge against a Titans defense that intercepted the Chiefs' Alex Smith three times in Week 1 and allowed 176 yards to the Cowboys' Tony Romo in Week 2.

(9/7/14) Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton played made enough plays to come out on top in Week 1, in a 23-16 win over the Ravens Sunday.
Dalton had a pretty quiet game for the most part, but came up with a big play late to win it. With the score tied 16-16, Dalton hit A.J. Green for a 77-yard touchdown to put the Bengals up for good.
Dalton finished the game with 301 passing yards, first 300-yard performance in a Week 1 of his career. Dalton completed 25 of 38 passes and had one touchdown, while avoiding any turnovers in the win.
Dalton started his season well Sunday, and will look to keep things going in Week 2 against the Falcons.
|Andy Dalton looking for revenge vs. Ravens |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(9/2/14) Expectations for Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton are high after he signed a massive extension this offseason, and he will get his first chance to try and live up to them in Week 1 against the Ravens.
Dalton is very familiar with the Ravens, having faced them six times in his career, but he doesn't have the best track record. Dalton has just six touchdowns to 11 interceptions through the air against the Ravens, while completing just 53.9 percent of his passes. He especially struggled in two games a year ago, as seven of his 20 interceptions for the season came against the Ravens defense.
If you take out a historic seven-touchdown performance by Peyton Manning in Week 1 a year ago, the Ravens were solid against quarterbacks, allowing 14.9 Fantasy points per game. Dalton will be looking for a measure of payback against the Ravens, given his struggles, but Fantasy owners should be wary as the season begins. Consider him more of a No. 2 Fantasy option for Week 1; neither Jamey Eisenberg nor Dave Richard has Dalton among the top-15 for quarterbacks this week.
|Andy Dalton racks up 150-plus yards in third exhibition game |

(8/24/14) Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton racked up 150-plus yards during Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals.
Dalton completed 13 passes, 10 of which were split between A.J. Green and Mohamed Sanu. He compiled 157 yards through the air while completing 13 of 21 passes. He is 24 of 34 for 373 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions this preseason.
|Andy Dalton has flawless night vs. Jets |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/16/14) Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton put together a flawless performance during Saturday’s preseason game against the Jets.
Dalton found an open Mohamed Sanu for a 42-yard touchdown strike on the opening series of the night. He went 4 for 4 for 74 yards on the first drive. He worked three series with the first-team and compiled 144 yards through the air while completing all eight of his pass attempts. He added a touchdown and no interceptions, registering a 158.3 passer rating.
Through two preseason games, Dalton has completed 11 of 13 pass attempts for 215 yards and a touchdown.
|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.
