In 27 games over the last two seasons with a healthy A.J. Green, Dalton has averaged 226 yards and 1.75 pass TD per game. The resulting 14.6 fantasy points per game would equate to solid QB2 numbers over a full 16-game season. With Tyler Boyd, Joe Mixon and Tyler Eifert back, Dalton has plenty of weapons to throw to. He should be streamable in 2019.
Bengals head coach Zac Taylor opted to install the team’s offense to the entire group of offensive players rather than doing it in position groups and that was probably a good approach for Giovani Bernard.
Bernard is still listed as a running back, but he spent the spring doing more than just taking handoffs from Andy Dalton while lining up in the backfield.
Bernard also split out wide as a receiver when he wasn’t a single back or to Dalton’s side in the shotgun and he said he’s enjoyed the introduction to the offense. The story said Bernard just wants to go out and make a play.
Driskel closed out the game against Cleveland throwing for 155 yards and a TD as the Bengals tried to come from behind against the Browns. Dalton wasn't great this year, but his loss seems like a downgrade for the rest of the offense. Sitting at 5-6, but still in the hunt, one has to wonder if the team brings back Green with Dalton out, or if they still try to make a playoff push.
As the story went on to say, it remains to be seen how the injury affects Dalton’s status for practice and next week’s game. If Dalton can't go, Driskel - who threw for 155 yards and a TD - likely gets the start.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Dalton did not break his thumb and X-rays were negative. He is scheduled to undergo further testing. Driskel threw for 155 yards and a TD and would get the start if Dalton is unable to go.
