Since a 4 TD game (with 3 INTs) with 361 yards on Oct. 20, Dalton has trended downward with 229 yards, 210 and last week just 174 against the Steelers. He's thrown four TDs and three INTs in that same three game span. You can argue it's a little surprising the team didn't make the switch following the loss to Pittsburgh, so Dalton could be on a short leash assuming Winston is ready to go.
Saints head coach Dennis Allen didn’t say that the team would stick with Andy Dalton as their quarterback in the immediate aftermath of Sunday’s loss to the Steelers and called the position one of the areas they’d evaluate heading into Week 11.

Monday didn’t bring a definitive answer, but it does sound like there’s a chance Winston returns to the starting lineup against the Rams. Winston has been active as Dalton’s backup for the last few games and Allen stuck with Dalton because the offense had some good outings. On Monday, though, Allen said we “haven’t been doing as well the last couple weeks” and that means the team has to consider a change, the story went on to say.
The tweet added the Saints are going to continue what they’re doing with Dalton. Head coach Dennis Allen said that Winston is healthy but it's all about performance. Hill will likely steal some work at the QB spot as well, but Dalton could at least be a streaming option in deeper, two QB leagues.
The tweet went on to say we’ll see how that impacts the team at QB this week. If Winston can't go, Dalton likely gets the call with Hill mixing in. The Saints host the Raiders in a nice matchup in an early Sunday game.
