Scouting report

CAR QB Andy Dalton - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 vs. Minnesota Vikings

Andy Dalton had a nice fantasy day in a loss to the Seahawks last week, tossing a pair of touchdowns and totaling 361 passing yards on 58 attempts. The Panthers look like they’re going to play from behind quite a bit, so there could be some volume fantasy points heading Dalton’s way if rookie Bryce Young is out again this week - as expected.

Dalton could be worth streaming in a nice matchup this week against the Vikings. Minnesota has been engaged in shootouts to start the season and they rank 27th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. Dalton is still Andy Dalton and this offense is still a work in progress, so there’s risk involved. Still, if you’re desperate, particularly in 2QB formats, Dalton might be worth rolling the dice on in a great matchup.

Update: With Bryce Young set to start, make sure Dalton is out of your lineup. Young becomes an interesting QB2 option in deeper leagues, due to the matchup.

NO QB Andy Dalton - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Atlanta Falcons

In Week 13, Andy Dalton threw for 229 yards and a touchdown. He remains with just three games this season with more than one touchdown pass. You get what you see at this point with Dalton and that's not something you want to rely on in the fantasy playoffs, even though it is an easy matchup against a bottom-five defense in DVOA in Atlanta.

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.
