Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton went 26-of-42 for 311 yards and two touchdowns to go along with one interception in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers. He added two yards on two carries and was also sacked four times.
Huddle Up: The script for this game was much like it was in the opener in that Dalton was asked to throw all day when his offensive line couldn't open holes in the running game, leaving him to absorb more punishment than he should. Dalton's 93 pass attempts rank second in the NFL, as do the nine sacks he has taken. Things are unlikely to change much on the road in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 35 of his 51 passes for a career-high 418 yards and two touchdowns in a 21-20 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1.
Huddle Up: While it didn't result in a win, Dalton looked reborn in Zac Taylor's offense. It's only a one-game sample, but Dalton could end up having serious streaming potential this year.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) said he will be ready to go when practices begin, and he has already been practicing the formations for head coach Zac Taylor's offense.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton will not receive a contract extension this offseason because the team wants to see how he plays in 2019, according to owner Mike Brown.
Huddle Up: Dalton was limited to 11 games this past season and threw for only 2,566 yards. He will be playing in a new offensive scheme next season and will have a solid receiving group to work with on offense. He should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) was able to begin throwing a football a couple of weeks ago.
Huddle Up: Dalton should be ready to go for the start of the season, and while he can deliver some big games against the right opponents, his overall ceiling is in the QB2 range.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton drew praise from new Bengals head coach Zac Taylor Tuesday, Feb. 5, saying the veteran quarterback is a 'great fit' for the coaching staff's offensive system. 'I've seen Andy do all of the things we've asked (Jared Goff) to do (in Los Angeles),' Taylor said. 'He's great under center, great in play action, great on the perimeter and the nakeds (bootlegs), and he's been an accurate passer when asked to drop back.'
Huddle Up: Dalton is capable of posting a few notable stat lines with the right matchups, but gamers would be taking an unnecessary risk to make him anything more than a midrange reserve.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton has a 'number of years' left, according to director of player personnel Duke Tobin, and Tobin said the team is 'comfortable' with Dalton as the starting quarterback.
Huddle Up: With a new coaching regime coming to Cincinnati, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Bengals begin to search for their quarterback of the future sooner rather than later. That being said, Dalton should be under center in 2019, providing respectable QB2 production.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 26. QB Tom Savage was claimed off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers in a corresponding move.
Huddle Up: With Dalton done for the year, Jeff Driskel figures to start for the remainder of Cincinnati's games. He held his own after replacing Dalton in Week 12, but he's not on the fantasy radar in traditional leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel completed 17-of-29 passes for 155 yards, one touchdown and no interception in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns, coming on for the injured QB Andy Dalton (thumb).
Huddle Up: It's uncertain if Dalton will need to miss playing time, but if he starts Driskel isn't a terribly attractive fantasy option heading into Week 13 against the Denver Broncos.
