2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Listen, Andy Dalton was an unmitigated disaster last year. Coming off a monster 2013 where he finished with 33 touchdowns and over 4,000 yards passing, the fantasy world knew there would be some regression in 2014. A change in offensive philosophy combined with serious injuries to top pass catchers Tyler Eifert, Marvin Jones, and A.J. Green, led to the near total collapse of Daltonís fantasy value. His 2014 season went up in flames and ended in yet another playoff disaster, but there is reason to believe Dalton can make like a phoenix-like rise from the ashes to become a value QB1 again.

Make no mistake - Dalton is not an elite talent. He turns the ball over too much and is prone to some catastrophic games, but heís big and strong, possesses a mediocre but accurate arm (64% completion percentage). He also takes a beating, and is a team leader. Heís one of the many quarterbacks that are dependent on the talent around them. Luckily for Dalton, heís surrounded by some of the best skill position players in the NFL. Bernard and Hill provide a deadly 1-2 punch from the backfield, and when healthy, Green, Jones, Sanu and Eifert have the potential to form one of the leaguesí most talented and explosive pass catching assemblies. With Green back fully healthy, and Eifert and Jones back from seasonís long injuries, Dalton has the stable of pass catchers that came with his elite 2013 season. Dalton had 66 total touchdowns in 2012 and 2013 combined, so a return to relevance isnít out of the realm of reason. With offensive coordinator Hue Jackson stating his desire to open up the offense this season, look for Daltonís pass attempts to go back over 500, after dipping to a career low 483 last year. Dalton has the weapons and confidence of his coaches to return to top-10 status. With the questionable secondaries of Baltimore and Pittsburgh on the schedule for a quarter of the season, Dalton is a sneaky QB2 value pick that could make for a fantastic streamer in weekly leagues.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Bengals once again preparing to start McCarron
No update yet on Andy Dalton's right thumb
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jan 4, 4:50 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
The Cincinnati Bengals are preparing as if quarterback AJ McCarron will start Saturday night's AFC wild-card game against the rival Pittsburgh Steelers, coach Marvin Lewis said in a news conference Monday, confirming what a source earlier told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. McCarron has started Cincinnati's past three games in place of Andy Dalton, who is sidelined with a broken thumb on his throwing hand. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: It would be a tough ask for Dalton to get his cast removed early this week - if that even happens - and expect him to be razor-sharp after missing the last three games. McCarron's presence should be considered a slight downgrade for the Bengals' supporting cast. A.J. Green has performed well against the Steelers regardless of his quarterback this year, posting an 11-118-1 line with Dalton against them in Week 8 and a 6-132-1 line against them in Week 14.


Injury Fractured right thumb for Dalton, out Week 15
...maybe longer
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 13, 4:10 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton suffered a fractured thumb in his throwing hand during Sunday's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers and is uncertain how long he will be out. Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said Dalton will miss next week's game against San Francisco but acknowledged he did not know whether the quarterback will miss any additional time. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Dalton will see specialist on Monday after injuring his thumb in the first quarter. It's possible Dalton will miss more than just next week. AJ McCarron threw for 280 yards and two touchdowns in relief and will get the start next week against the 49ers.


Injury Tyler Eifert returns to practice
Missed Week 13 with stinger
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 9, 3:00 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Tyler Eifert has returned to practice. Thatís a huge lift for Bengals. Missed last week with a stinger. (Paul Dehner Jr. on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Tyler Kroft started at tight end for the Bengals last week but caught only one pass for 17 yards. Eifert's return will add another redzone weapon for QB Andy Dalton. Eifert leads all tight ends with 12 TDs.
