Andy Dalton's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

According to our projection, you can expect Andy Dalton to be a bench player or a good option off the waiver wire. His 263 projected fantasy points puts him at #19 behind Derek Carr and ahead of Matthew Stafford. He has averaged 20.3 fantasy points in his past 13 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 18.8 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#20) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 49%, he is the #23 most highly owned quarterback. Andy Dalton is expected to improve on last season's #23 fantasy position rank.

SIT EM ALERT: ANDY DALTON PROJECTED FOR FEWER FPS THAN MASON RUDOLPH IN WEEK 3

Andy Dalton is projected for 16.1 fantasy points in week 3 which only ranks him as the #23 projected quarterback and not a fantasy relevant player for the week. This is projected to be a below average week with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Derek Carr but behind Mason Rudolph. Week 4 is projected to be slightly better based on projected rank (#22). He is projected for 17.3 fantasy points.

ANDY DALTON IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $7.1K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $5.3K

He is projected for 14.2 FanDuel points and 14.8 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$1697 short of $7.1K on FanDuel and -$1067 short of $5.3K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
