Asked Saturday afternoon to sum up Andy Dalton's first few days of training camp, Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson used one word.
A little over-dramatic?
Not if you've seen Dalton practice and handle himself around his teammates and reporters the past 10 days.
Passes that Dalton struggled to deliver last season, he's hitting. Progressions he might have missed or didn't get to before, he's spotting. Personality traits that some thought he lacked, he's suddenly got those, too.
It's like a case of the body snatchers.
So far is the key word. However fantasy-wise, Dalton has finished #17, #12 and #4 his first three seasons. Of course in the real-life playoffs, it's another story. This year, we rank Dalton 17th, putting him in good shape to be a decent QB2 for your team yet again. Given the depth at QB this year, Dalton is a guy you can eye in the 14th round according to ADPs.
