Summary

Andy Dalton had a fantastic regular season in 2013 only to see it come crashing down in the team's lone playoff game - a home loss to a Wild Card San Diego team. Dalton had his best statistical year by far last year under Offensive Coordinator Jay Gruden. This season, however, he'll be under Hue Jackson as Gruden left the team for Washington's Head Coach position. Jackson is far more run-heavy than Gruden. Between that and the general doubt surrounding Dalton's future, it will be difficult for the fourth-year player to approach the success he had in his fantastic 2013 campaign. Jackson's commitment to the run game at every one of his NFL stops so far doesn't have Dalton's arrow pointing up. (May 14)

Bengals | Want to sign Andy Dalton to Colin Kaepernick type deal (Tue Jul 22, 01:57 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton should be signed to a contract that mirrors the deal signed by San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, in the opinion of owner Mike Brown.

Our View: Earlier this year Kaepernick signed a seven-year $126 million contract which included $61 million guaranteed. He ranks 2nd in the NFL behind Aaron Rodgers in terms of annual average salary with a $21 million price tag. The Bengals are going to have to cough up a significant amount in order to keep Dalton around. He's entering the final year of his deal and has been incredibly productive in the regular season. Dalton's 0-3 postseason record is something he needs to change in the future.

Bengals | Teammate expects Andy Dalton to receive extension (Thu Jul 17, 02:02 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton should receive a contract extension before the start of the regular season, according to WR A.J. Green. Green said he believes the team knows Dalton is the quarterback to take them into the future.

Our View: Dalton is in the final year of his contract, and the Bengals have to find the right number to keep him around. He's put up some great numbers, having more touchdown passes in the first three years of an NFL career than everyone but Peyton Manning and Dan Marino. Dalton's game falls apart in the postseason, and that further complicates what the team will have to pay.

Bengals | OC wants to help Andy Dalton (Fri Jul 11, 09:37 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said he wants to help QB Andy Dalton improve his play this upcoming season. 'We are tethered together. And I'll jump off a building with this guy,' Jackson said, 'because I believe in the things he's trying to accomplish with his career, and I think I can help him.'

Our View: Jackson will help Dalton by limiting what he does on the field with a powerful ground game. We could see Gio Bernard and rookie Jeremy Hill punish defenses on the ground to set up play-action passing for Dalton and A.J. Green. He was the 3rd-best fantasy QB last year, but this is a different system than what Jay Gruden ran. Expect Dalton's numbers to fall to QB2 levels. His current ADP is QB17 (12.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.
