Summary

The inconsistency of Dalton's career is nearing staggering levels. In his seven seasons, Dalton has passed for fewer than 3,400 yards four times and more than 4,200 yards twice. Only once has he fallen in between that sizeable gap. While Dalton has been either very high or very low in passing yardage, his standing among NFL quarterbacks remains relatively consistent. Dalton is in "quarterback purgatory;" he's far from the worst in the league and can lead a winning team, but he's nowhere near the upper echelon. Despite the chances of such a move resulting in an inferior player, many have said that Cincinnati should move on from Dalton - or should at least draft a promising prospect to develop. This notion makes it interesting that team moved on from A.J. McCarron after another poor season from Dalton last year. His supporting cast isn't noticeably better, which could make 2018 another year in purgatory for the Bengals. (August 4)

Bengals | Andy Dalton tosses two scores (Thu Aug 9, 09:24 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed six of his eight pass attempts for 103 yards, two touchdowns and an interception against the Chicago Bears in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 9.

Our View: The Bengals offense looked much better than it did at any time last year. It's just the preseason opener, but the entire Cincinnati offensive ecosystem should be much more conducive to creating fantasy value this year.
