2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
A few things stuck out to me as I prepared this write-up about Dalton. The first tidbit was that he actually finished in the top 12 of overall quarterback scoring despite not having a game with more than 2 touchdowns and only 18 total passing scores. This is probably more of an indictment of injuries hitting some major young stars, but I digress. The second was that his finish came with top targets, A.J. Green, and Tyler Eifert missing a combined 14 games last season. Dalton was white hot out of the gates with two straight 360-plus yard games, and eventually piled up a near career high 4,206 yards passing.

Even if his touchdown numbers don't pop off the page, Dalton has underrated arm strength and athleticism. He should have Green and Eifert healthy and ready to go starting in Week 1, and the Bengals added a dynamic back in Joe Mixon and blazing receiver in John Ross. Dalton is going to possibly have the finest set of skill position players he's had since he's been in the NFL which should translate into better overall numbers.

Despite the improvement in final stats, I think Dalton is due for a regression in overall finish. He was able to get into the top-12 due to injuries to young guns like David Carr, Cam Newton, and Marcus Mariota. He was also harassed and sacked 41 times last season (7th worst in the league) behind an offensive line that seems to have gotten worse on paper. If I'm waiting to draft a quarterback late, I'm simply going to go with players with a higher ceiling than Dalton. Cinci is going to lean on the running game and a young aggressive defense to stay in games and that leads to a much lower attempt total. Other than elite top tier quarterbacks, fantasy signal callers need volume for production, and I just don't know that Dalton is going to get it. Consider The Red Rifle a fine fantasy back-up that won't kill you if you're forced to start him but won't give you a match-up advantage either.
