NO QB Andy Dalton - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Los Angeles Rams

The Saints are sticking with Andy Dalton despite another lackluster performance last week against the Steelers. Maybe he can find some success this week against a struggling and banged-up Rams defense, but can you really trust Dalton at this point, even in what seems like a favorable matchup?

NO QB Andy Dalton - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Pittsburgh Steelers

The Ravens were a very tough matchup, as expected, for Andy Dalton, but he did throw a touchdown, meaning he has thrown a touchdown in all six of his starts for the Saints. That streak likely continues against the Steelers, who rank 21st in DVOA pass defense. He's still a QB2 in standard leagues, but worth consideration for daily lineups this week.

NO QB Andy Dalton - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Baltimore Ravens

As incredible as it may seem, it looks like Andy Dalton has taken the starting job away from Jameis Winson. Dalton actually had a solid outing against the Raiders, completing 73% of his passes for 229 yards and two touchdowns. However, the dreaded primetime game awaits Dalton this week as he plays on Monday night against the Ravens, who just acquired LB Roquan Smith. A top-12 pass defense that will get even better thanks to Smith. So just beware if you decide to roll the dice on Dalton in primetime. We saw what happened the last time he played in primetime. Just ask Marco Wilson.

NO QB Andy Dalton - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs. Las Vegas Raiders

Andy Dalton gave us quite the Andy Dalton primetime performance last week against the Cardinals. He threw for 361 yards and four touchdowns, but he had to throw quite a bit because the Saints fell behind early...thanks to Andy Dalton's two pick-sixes, including the epic shot of Marco Wilson doing a frontflip into the end zone. Despite all that, the Saints are sticking with Dalton as their starter, even with Jameis Winston healthy. Sure, why not? Dalton is still a QB2 but he does face one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL in the Raiders this week, so Dalton should put up decent numbers. Just pray he doesn't implode again.

NO QB Andy Dalton - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Arizona Cardinals

With Jameis Winston still limited, it may be another week of Andy Dalton as the starter in New Orleans, which doesn't really provide much of a spark for the offense. Dalton has two straight games with under 200 passing yards and only three touchdowns in three games as starter. Things can change and Winston could be the starter, which at least gives the Saints a little more upside. If it's Dalton, best to steer clear, especially on a short week and with Dalton a little hurt himself with a back injury.

NO QB Andy Dalton - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Cincinnati Bengals

It'll be another week of the Red Rifle in New Orleans, but he hasn't exactly been slinging the football since taking over for Jameis Winston. He can manage the game, but that doesn't get you much in fantasy. Expect more of the same this week against the Bengals, the No. 7 pass defense in DVOA. He just cracks our top 25 quarterbacks this week thanks to the byes. That, and Taysom Hill looks to be back to being the Saints' Swiss army knife.

CHI QB Andy Dalton - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. Arizona Cardinals

Andy Dalton started the week getting starter reps in practice, so it seems likely Justin Fields will sit out another week with his ribs injury. That would put Dalton in place to start, and Dalton actually looked good last week, finishing with 317 yards, one touchdown and one interception. But that performance came against the Lions. He'll get a much tougher test this week against the Cardinals, who have allowed the third-fewest fantasy points to opposing QBs. Dalton will likely be without Allen Robinson in this matchup, meaning he gets a tough matchup without one of his top weapons. Also, a Bears QB has only thrown two touchdowns in a game once all season. It's just hard to imagine Dalton having much success, which is why he's a bottom five option at QB this week.
