Based on your league set up and scoring, your starting fantasy roster could hinge completely on the signal caller or it could be the most insignificant of skill players. In super-flex or two-quarterback leagues, it’s often the right combination of the two that pushes you over the edge. Start the wrong guy and it could be the difference of 20-30 points. Let’s see which ones look good for Week 6.
Andy Dalton, Dallas Cowboys vs. Arizona Cardinals
Think what you will of Andy Dalton but he was never a bad quarterback. In his best days in Cincinnati, he was a quarterback who outplayed his difficult matchups on occasions, but was usually a safe streamer. Injuries to A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert and not having a deeper, more talented stable of receivers affected his career as a Bengal.
Fast forward to the events that has Dalton becoming a starting quarterback again, for the Dallas Cowboys. Dalton led the Cowboys on game-tying and game-winning drives at the end of the fourth quarter. He was 9-of-11 for 111 yards with no touchdowns or turnovers.
This is arguably the best set of receivers that Dalton has ever had with one of the best running backs behind him. Dallas’ much-celebrated offensive line has been hit hard with injuries, but he will manage, as he always has. The Cardinals just lost their best pass rusher (Chandler Jones) to a bicep tear. This is one matchup to be useful for owners who picked the Red Rocket in waivers this week.
