2015 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-in

Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs


After setting career highs with 363 completions, 4,293 passing yards and 33 passing touchdowns in 2013, Dalton tied his career low of 3,398 yards and set a new low with just 19 TDs last season. However, his completion rate (64.2) had never been better. The Bengals know deep down that they are best when they limit Andy's exposure. Dalton had fewer than 30 attempts in nine games last year as the Bengals leaned on their running game. However, Dalton has thrown at least 16 interceptions in each of the past three seasons. Last year, he had three 300-yard passing games but only one game with more than two passing scores. In addition, his best target, A.J. Green, wasn't at full strength for a significant portion of the year, and the Bengals' secondary receiving options still haven't blossomed into viable threats in the passing game. When you see that tight end Jermaine Gresham had the second-most catches on the team while averaging a measly 7.4 yards per catch, you see the downside risk of Dalton as a fantasy option. With a slew of tough matchups on the slate, Andy should be nothing more than a backup fantasy QB in 2015 while producing league-average stats at best. Green gives him a big-play threat, but the volume necessary to post big numbers won't be there for Dalton.
