Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Dalton is entering the final year of his rookie deal but will now remain in Cincinnati as the Bengals' franchise quarterback following this long-term commitment. The 2011 second-rounder is coming off his best statistical season last year, as he ranked third in the NFL in touchdown passes (33) and seventh in passing yards (4,293) despite throwing 20 interceptions. That production catapulted Dalton into a viable QB1 option at quarterback, although this season he'll have to deal with the lack of pass-happy offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, who's departed to become coach of the Redskins. Since joining the league, Dalton has averaged 10 wins per season and has led the Bengals to the postseason every year. Although he's yet to win a playoff game, Dalton will be trusted with the keys to new coordinator Hue Jackson's offense for the foreseeable future.
Dalton completed 29-of-51 passes for 334 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Sunday's playoff loss to the Chargers. He also added 26 rushing yards on five carries.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Dalton put up impressive yardage, but his average of 6.55 yards was lackluster and his two interceptions proved costly. He also fumbled twice, losing one. The signal-caller is now 0-3 in his playoff career and will have to cut down on turnovers to take the next step in his development.
Dalton completed 21-of-36 passes for 281 yards, with two touchdowns and four interceptions Sunday against the Ravens. He also ran six times for 23 rushing yards and another score.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Dalton showed significant improvement from 2011 to 2012. His completion rate increased by more than four percentage points, helping the quarterback throw for nearly 300 more yards and seven extra touchdowns. Dalton's efficiency also improved from 6.6 to 6.9 YPA. The Bengals also made an effort to upgrade their offense through the draft, adding tight end Tyler Eifert in the first round. He'll team with Jermaine Gresham to bolster Cincinnatiís attack over the middle of the field, hopefully taking pressure off of playmaker A.J. Green. In the second round, the Bengals drafted running back Giovani Bernard. The youngster should immediately see a significant role, giving the Bengals an instant upgrade over Benjarvus Green-Ellis. Remember, this is a team that averaged only 4.1 YPC in 2012. With greater efficiency in the running game, Dalton should have more opportunities to find Green downfield. Plus, Dalton can give you something on the ground. He's not going to run for 50 yards a game, but the quarterback rushed for four touchdowns in 2012 and can provide an extra point or two each week with his legs.

2012

Dalton was everything the Bengals hoped he would be, finishing his rookie year with 3,398 yards (6.6 YPA), 20 touchdowns and 13 interceptions passing while running for 152 yards and a touchdown. His poise greatly exceeded that of many veteran quarterbacks, and his fantasy value is pointed upward as the Bengals figure to give him more passing responsibilities in 2012. Wideout A.J. Green is the sort of talent who could become the best in the league, and heís backed up by the promising trio of Jordan Shipley and rookies Mohamed Sanu (third round) and Marvin Jones (fifth round), while the tight-end tandem of Jermaine Gresham and fourth-round pick Orson Charles is highly skilled. The loss of the below-average Cedric Benson at running back is not a concern, particularly with BenJarvus Green-Ellis around to replace him.

2011

On one hand, it's tough to see the former Mountain West star being an immediate hit in the NFL. On the other, he potentially has a favorable situation given Cincinnati's abundance of targets. Fourth overall pick A.J. Green is the most talented of the group, but Jerome Simpson, Andre Caldwell and Jordan Shipley were impressive in 2010, as well. And that's not even considering what 2010 first-round pick Jermaine Gresham might turn into at tight end. If Carson Palmer doesn't return, Dalton will have to beat out Bruce Gradkowski and Jordan Palmer for the starting job. Even if Dalton loses out to Gradkowski, the latter has only started eight games in the last two seasons, meaning that Dalton should keep him arm warm every week.
