Andy Dalton quietly put together a very nice year in Cincinnati throwing for 3,669 yards and 27 touchdowns. Now Dalton doesn’t get much praise from the fantasy world, but I believe Dalton can be a low QB1 or high QB2 in 2013. Who do you think throws A.J Green all of those touchdowns?
Don’t forget Dalton is only entering his 3rd year, and the connection between Green and Dalton will continue to grow, as they were drafted in the same class. Dalton isn’t going to go too high in the draft, and could potentially put up QB1-esk numbers for you. If you find yourself drafting RBs and WRs early and you feel like you missed the ship when it comes to starting QBs check out Dalton, as he could easily be a top 10 QB next year.
Getting a healthy Mohammad Sanu will help Dalton’s numbers out and Cincinnati should add some offensive talent in the upcoming rookie draft. Dalton had his fair share of stellar performances during the year, putting up 20 plus points 6 times last year. Look for Dalton as a bail out QB for your team, and a surprise QB1. He’s a great backup and bye week filler, and should be the starter in Cincinnati with an elite weapon in A.J. Green for a long time to come.
