Andy Dalton looks improved on Day 1
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

As Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson cautioned, it's only Day 1, but Andy Dalton looks much improved following an offseason of tweaking his mechanics with quarterback guru Tom House. ESPN reports Dalton was on the money not just on small and mid-range throws but he also hit the deep ball perfectly a couple of times to none other than A.J. Green.

A.J. Green staying loyal to Andy Dalton
by Larry Hartstein |

Bengals receiver A.J. Green told NFL Network he's hoping quarterback Andy Dalton receives a contract extension. "We came in together and that is the great thing for me and him," Green said. "I know he's my guy. I don't want any other quarterback throwing me the ball. I think he feels the same way about me."

Green said he's built chemistry with Dalton in their three years together.

"He feels confident that whether I'm double covered, triple covered, it don't matter I'm going to come down with the ball," Green said. "And I feel like we've grown over these last three years and I feel like this year is going to be another key year for us."

Andy Dalton's pass attempts to drop
by Larry Hartstein |

New Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson is committed to "taking the load off Andy Dalton," reports the team's website. The report said Dalton's pass attempts will drop from last year's 586 and come closer to 407, the number of passes thrown by Seattle's Russell Wilson.

Receivers rave about Andy Dalton's improved arm
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Receivers Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones both complimented Andy Dalton's improved arm strength and velocity, the Bengals official team website reported Wednesday. Dalton has spent part of the offseason with passing expert Dr. Tom House in Los Angeles.  

"Best I've seen him," Sanu said. "He's put a lot of work in the offseason, just seeing how he approaches it ... it's on you fast. You turn around and you're like, 'whoa.'"

"He's got a lot of zing, a lot of velocity to him," Jones said. "Especially when it matches the intensity with the way we run our routes. We run our plays in different periods and it just brings everybody up, him included. He's spinning the ball real nice."

Dalton had the best year of his career in 2013, getting 4,296 passing yards and 33 touchdowns along with 20 interceptions.

Bengals draft A.J. McCarron
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

With pick No. 164 in the NFL Draft, the Bengals selected quarterback A.J. McCarron from Alabama. McCarron will compete with Jason Campbell to be the No. 2 quarterback behind starter Andy Dalton.

Even though Dalton is entering the final year of his contract, McCarron is not in line to start any time soon unless Dalton leaves as a free agent, which isn't likely. McCarron had a standout senior campaign in 2013, winning the Maxwell Award (college football player of the year), the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award and finishing second in the Heisman Trophy voting.

He set the Alabama record for passing yards after throwing for 3,063 yards, 28 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 13 starts. He had a 36-4 record in 40 career starts with all four losses coming to opponents ranked in the Top 15.
