Andy Dalton, QB, Cincinnati Bengals
Speaking of a Bengals’ offense that is going well right now, Dalton has six touchdowns and interception over two games with 17.52 and 26.6 fantasy points in the respective games (Yahoo! scoring).
Tough-looking matchups are coming for Dalton in Week 3 (Carolina Panthers), Week 4 (Atlanta Falcons) and Week 5 (Miami Dolphins), before things ease up in Week 6 (Pittsburgh Steelers), Week 7 (Kansas City Chiefs) and Week 8 (Tampa Bay Buccaneers). But on the tough side the same was said for Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens, and all Dalton did (with Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosely out most of the game) was throw four touchdowns.
Dalton’s ownership rates on ESPN and Yahoo! are actually trending down. But if you’re looking for a high-end QB2 or a low-end QB1, “The Red Rifle” should be on the radar.
ESPN Ownership: 18.5%
