Inconsistencies will continue for Andy Dalton
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The emergence of Jeremy Hill, who ran for 148 yards and two touchdowns against the Browns in Week 15, as the Bengals' go-to running back probably gives them less incentive to throw the ball going forward. They'll obviously have to when playing from behind, which could be the case Week 16 against Denver, and when they do, quarterback Andy Dalton could put up decent numbers with star wide receiver A.J. Green at his disposal. But when they don't, he's liable to disappear entirely.

Week 15 was amazingly Dalton's third game this season with less than 150 passing yards. Granted, it was the first win, but he's had enough sub-200-yard games in general that you really don't want to be in the business of making predictions with him.

For more major takeaways from Week 15, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.

Bengals QB Dalton has bad game in great one for team
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

On an afternoon for the Bengals in which just about everything went well, not much went well for quarterback Andy Dalton.

The host Browns played most of the game without Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden and had much of their starting secondary sidelined, but Dalton was inaccurate and seemed to lack assurance in the pocket.

Dalton finished 14 of 24 for 117 yards, no touchdowns and one interception. His pick was thrown right to Browns linebacker Craig Robertson, whom he apparently didn't see.

He will try to find himself next Monday night against Denver.

Andy Dalton totals three touchdowns in Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton threw for 302 yards and two touchdowns in Cincinnati's loss to Pittsburgh in Week 14. Dalton also ran four times for 22 yards and a touchdown. 

His touchdown run came on a read option where Dalton kept and strolled into the endzone for the score. Dalton also connected with wide receiver A.J. Green for an 80-yard touchdown. 

Dalton briefly left the game in the fourth quarter when he was hit in the ribs after a pass, but he missed just one play. Dalton was taken out at the end of the game as a precautionary measure. 

The Bengals will face the Browns in Week 15.

Illness doesn't absolve Andy Dalton
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

With three interceptions to just one touchdown pass and only 176 yards, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was undeniably bad Week 13 at Tampa Bay -- and at a time you'd least expect it. The Buccaneers entered the day ranked only 22nd against the pass and had allowed the fifth-highest passer rating of any team.

Of course, Dalton was ill for the game -- and by ill, I don't just mean a cough and the sniffles -- so he has an excuse for the poor performance. But what was his excuse Week 10 against Cleveland, when he threw for just 86 yards and three interceptions? What about when he threw those two interceptions against Jacksonville in Week 9 or against Carolina in Week 6, two of the worst defenses against the pass this season?

The truth is that even with a talented receiving corps -- yes, A.J. Green missed an extended period, but Mohamed Sanu proved to be a capable No. 1 in his absence -- Dalton hasn't been anything close to reliable this year. He hasn't been able to take advantage of matchups, and he hasn't been able to consistently find the end zone. He has 13 touchdowns to 13 interceptions, which may have been an OK ratio in Terry Bradshaw's day, but not in 2014.

Somehow, Dalton is still owned in 83 percent of Fantasy leagues. Granted, he's a backup in most of those, but by now, I've got to think you can do better than him in that role.

Bengals QB Andy Dalton performs poorly despite win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Bengals escaped with a win Sunday at Tampa Bay, but little credit belongs to quarterback Andy Dalton.

Dalton completed 19 of 27 for 176 yards and a 13-yard scoring strike to favorite target A.J. Green that put his team ahead to stay. He also tallied on a 5-yard run, but was otherwise ineffective. Dalton threw three interceptions, all in the second quarter, including one on his first pass and another into double-coverage in the end zone.

He did perform better after intermission, completing 12 of 16 for 114 yards and the score with two minutes left in the third quarter.

Dalton will seek great consistency and production when Cincinnati hosts Pittsburgh in a critical AFC North showdown next Sunday.
