Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is excited and eager to learn about the Bengals new "aggressive" offense that offensive coordinator Bill Lazor has been working on. While details remain vague, it sounds like Cincinnati will be more aggressive on the offensive side of the ball, with Dalton possibly reaping the benefits. Until we know more about Lazor's plans on offense, it's hard to say if Dalton, wide receiver A.J. Green or running back Joe Mixon will be the primary beneficiary. Each could get a nice boost from a more aggressive approach next season, however. Until further notice, this offense runs through Green.
The Cincinnati Bengals are not planning to extend quarterback Andy Dalton anytime soon. Dalton signed a six-year, $96 million contract four years ago. Since then, the average salary for quarterbacks has ballooned, making Dalton only the 17th highest paid QB in the league. Dalton will be in Cincy for the next two years at least and still projects as a high-end QB2 next season.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton had his best fantasy week since Week 4 on Sunday. He completed 23 of 44 passes for 222 yards and three touchdowns in the Bengals 31-27 victory over the Ravens. Dalton's 20.68 points are the most he's put up since his four touchdowns against the Browns in Week 4. Dalton finishes 2017 with 3,320 yards and 25 touchdowns. He was a solid QB2 in most fantasy formats, but he did not put up enough yards consistently to be trusted as more than that. The same can be expected of him in 2018.
