2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
In real football terms, Dalton delivered far more than was expected of him as a rookie signal caller in 2011, leading the Bengals to a 9-7 record and earning a wildcard playoff spot. Along the way, he threw for 3,398 yards with 20 touchdowns and 13 interceptions and even chipped in 152 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Considering he didnít have the benefit of a full offseason, those accomplishments were impressive but itís safe to say more is expected in 2012. The knock on Dalton is that he lacks elite arm strength which hurts his ability to make big plays but that is somewhat offset by having the opportunity to play with wide receiver A.J. Green, who has the ability to adjust in midflight on deep passes. For Dalton to improve on his 15th fantasy quarterback ranking from a year ago, he will need both Green and tight end Jermaine Gresham to make improvements and for another player to step up opposite Green at wide receiver. Dalton hit the rookie wall in Week 13, tossing four touchdowns and averaging just 178 passing yards per game over his final five games, which included four games with less than 200 yards passing. On the plus side, he averaged 27 rushing yards over his final three games, including the teamís wildcard playoff loss. Heading into 2012, Dalton ranks as a middle tier QB2 with upside if he gets some unexpected production opposite Green.

News From The Past 90 Days
AJ Green signs four-year extension with Bengals     -- Fri Sep 11 4:00 pm --

Deal reportedly worth $60 million
A.J. Green is the latest game-changing wide receiver to earn a substantial pay raise. With the Bengals' regular-season opener just two days away, the 27-year-old has agreed to a four-year, $60 million extension, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Green, who was in the final year of his rookie deal, joins Julio Jones, Demaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant, all wideouts receiving new contracts in the weeks leading up to the 2015 season. Jones signed a five-year, $71 million deal while Bryant and Thomas inked five-year, $70 million deal. The specifics - like guaranteed money and yearly payments - of Green's contract remain unknown at this time. What is known, however, is that Green is critical to the Bengals' passing game. In four seasons he's made four Pro Bowls, never had fewer than 1,041 receiving yards, and averaged nearly nine touchdowns a year. (CBS Sports)

FF Today's Take: Green is a top-tier wide receiver, poised for another productive year. The only thing that could hold him back is his erratic quarterback Andy Dalton, who's coming off arguably his worst season to date.
