Andy Dalton Throws For 361 Yards In Loss

Carolina Panthers quarterback Andy Dalton completed 34 of his 58 passing attempts for 361 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the 27-37 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3. It was an impressive performance for the 35-year-old, who started in the absence of Bryce Young (ankle). Wide receivers Adam Thielen and DJ Chark both racked up at least 86 yards and a touchdown. If Young is out again in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings, Dalton will have upside in another favorable matchup for quarterbacks. However, it's important not to overreact to his big performance. He should not be started over big-name fantasy signal-callers.

Andy Dalton To Start In Week 3

Carolina Panthers quarterback Andy Dalton will be starting against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3 after Bryce Young (ankle) was ruled out. Dalton took first-team reps in practice all week in anticipation of Young missing the game. The 13-year veteran will be starting for his fifth different team in the last five seasons. In 2022, Dalton went 6-8 as a starter for the New Orleans Saints, throwing for 2,871 yards, 18 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. Seattle's defense has given up back-to-back 300-yard passing games in the first two weeks of the season, making Dalton worth starting in two-quarterback leagues and a viable streamer in traditional leagues with a thin wire.

Andy Dalton Could See The Start In Week 3

Carolina Panthers quarterback Andy Dalton could be in line to make the start for his team in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. Starting signal-caller Bryce Young (ankle) has not practiced all week due to an ankle injury and is "unlikely to play" on Sunday, according to the team. Dalton has been practicing with the first team this week and would draw a plus matchup against a Seattle defense that is allowing the 11th-most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs through the first two games. Dalton was serviceable for the New Orleans Saints in 2022, throwing for 2,871 yards, 18 touchdowns, and nine interceptions in 14 games started. Dalton is on the radar as a QB3 in fantasy and is worth a speculative add for gamers who play in two-quarterback formats.

Andy Dalton Dealing With Back Tightness

Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Thomas Brown said that backup quarterback Andy Dalton (back) is dealing with some back tightness in training camp. It remains to be seen if Dalton will need to take time away from practice this week, but he should be considered day-to-day for now. The Panthers already named rookie first-rounder Bryce Young, the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft, as their starting signal-caller heading into the regular season. As long as the 35-year-old Dalton is healthy this year, he'll be holding a clipboard on the sidelined while helping prepare Young for his first NFL campaign. Behind Dalton, the Panthers also have second-year QB Matt Corral.

Bryce Young Splitting First-Team Reps With Andy Dalton

No. 1 draft pick Bryce Young is splitting the Carolina Panthers' first-team quarterback repetitions with Andy Dalton. Panthers head coach Frank Reich said that Dalton will start out as the No. 1 quarterback during full-team practices, but he said that Young would also be taking reps with the first team and that he might end up getting more first-team reps in the end. "When he's ready, when it's best for the team, that's when we'll look to make the transition. But when we come back out Monday, Andy will be taking reps with the ones. Bryce will be with the twos. But Bryce is gonna get a lot of reps. He'll likely even get a few more than Andy just as the new guy," Reich said in an interview with The Atlantic.

Andy Dalton To Get First-Team Reps

Carolina Panthers quarterback Andy Dalton will get first-team reps at OTAs, according to head coach Frank Reich. The Panthers appear to be committed to letting Bryce Young develop behind a veteran quarterback. It's not often that the No. 1 overall pick doesn't start Week 1, but the Panthers don't want to rush anything. Panthers GM Scott Fitterer said there is no timetable for Young to start, so they plan to wait it out. Dalton signed a two-year, $11 million deal with Carolina over the offseason. The expectation is that Young is going to start before the 2023 season is over, but the Panthers aren't going to rush him.

Andy Dalton Labeled Starter For "Right Now"

According to Panthers general manager Scott Fitterer, quarterback Andy Dalton is projected to be under center come Week 1. "We went out and signed Andy Dalton for a reason," stated Fitterer during an interview with Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio. "If Andy's the guy to start the season, and he's the starter right now heading into the season, then he'll be the guy. We say it's an open competition, but Frank did say, 'hey, Andy's our guy right now. He'll walk into the season as the starter, and then as you know, the young guys compete underneath him." Dalton signed with the Panthers during the offseason after playing in New Orleans during the 2022-23 campaign. In 14 games with the Saints, he threw for 2,871 yards, 18 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. He also completed a career-high 66.7% of his attempts. Of course, the obvious plan is for 2023 No. 1 overall pick Bryce Young to learn and develop under the veteran signal-caller. But as long as Dalton maintains a grip on the starting job, he'll have value in deep, multi-quarterback setups.

Andy Dalton Expected To Back Up Bryce Young

The Carolina Panthers signed quarterback Andy Dalton in the offseason, but the 35-year-old veteran is expected to be a backup and to mentor first overall pick Bryce Young in his rookie season in 2023. The Panthers didn't give up four high draft picks and No. 1 wide receiver D.J. Moore to move up to No. 1 overall to let Young sit on the bench and watch for a year. Most scouts and coaches viewed Young as the most NFL-ready signal-caller in this year's draft, so it makes sense for them to throw him into the fire immediately, with Dalton as an insurance policy. Dalton has played in 166 NFL games (162 starts) in his 12-year career, so he has plenty of experience. In 14 starts for the Saints in 2022, he threw for 2,871 yards, 18 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Andy Dalton Heading To Carolina

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, free-agent quarterback Andy Dalton agreed to a two-year, $10 million contract ($8 million guaranteed) with Carolina. The veteran signal-caller played 14 games for the Saints last season, starting all of them, and threw for 2,871 yards, 18 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. It's more than likely Dalton's best days are behind him. However, although he won't be a consistent fantasy contributor on a rebuilding Panthers team, he'll provide valuable guidance to whoever Carolina drafts in April, assuming a quarterback. Managers should expect Dalton to be the starter come Week 1, but he may find himself on the bench if he struggles at any point during the 2023-24 campaign.

Andy Dalton Game-Manages In Week 18 Loss

New Orleans Saints quarterback Andy Dalton had a lackluster performance on a day where the Saints lost in a 10-7 defensive battle. Dalton went 15-for-25 for 171 yards and a touchdown in the loss and carried the ball once for a two yard gain. It was likely the last start for Dalton as the Saints' chosen starting quarterback as New Orleans gears up for an offseason where they will likely see personnel changes. Dalton's contract with the Saints was only a 1-year deal, so he will be on the free agent market to sign as a backup quarterback to start 2023.
