Summary

Dalton and AFC North counterpart Joe Flacco are similar to evaluate. Both have been successful enough to remain unquestioned starters on their teams, but neither has been among the league's highest caliber of quarterbacks. There's enough sample size on them to know that the range of outcomes they have produced thus far in their careers isn't likely to change. One thing that isn't similar between the AFC North foes is that Dalton has an elite wide receiver in A.J. Green, and his other weapons have improved this offseason as well. John Ross was drafted ninth overall to give them team a deep threat with blazing speed, and Joe Mixon was drafted in the second round to add a playmaker to the backfield. Even Dalton's incumbent weapons should improve this season simply by being healthier. The all-world Green only played 10 games last season, as did Giovani Bernard. Tyler Eifert, a touchdown threat on any play inside the 20, only played eight. The whole offense should have some positive regression this season, even with some losses on the offensive line. Just don't expect Dalton to be top-five in the NFL in any major passing categories. (May 13)

Bengals | Jox Mixon's versatility praised (Thu May 18, 09:34 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon's versatility will make it harder for defenses to know what the offense is doing, according to QB Andy Dalton.

Our View: Mixon has drawn comparisons to Le'Veon Bell (Steelers) because of his versatility. We see him as a full-time back and certainly a strong fantasy asset. The Bengals will have to hammer out the touches in the backfield between Mixon, Gio Bernard and Jeremy Hill.
