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.
