Player Outlook
Dalton started just one game in 2023 for the Panthers and he finished as the QB7 overall that week with 362 passing yards and two touchdowns. Dalton's production came on 58 passing attempts, but garbage time stats count just the same in Fantasy Football. The Panthers have doubled down on their investment in Bryce Young as they should, so Dalton is off the Fantasy radar, but he would be a sneaky QB2 in two-QB and Superflex leagues should he see playing time in 2024.

  • Panthers' Andy Dalton: Dealing with illness

    Dalton is dealing with an illness ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Titans, Joe Person of The Athletic reports. The backup quarterback to rookie No. 1 overall pick Bryce Young is listed as questionable on the injury report. Dalton has played in three games and on 77 offensive snaps this season.

  • Panthers' Andy Dalton: Returning to backup duties

    Dalton is expected to resume backup quarterback duties Sunday against the Vikings with Bryce Young (ankle) set to return from a one-game absence to star the Week 4 contest, David Newton of reports. Young was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, clearing up any concern about the health of his ankle. In Young's absence in the Panthers' 37-27 loss to the Seahawks in Week 3, Dalton completed 34 of 58 passes for 361 yards and two touchdowns while adding two carries for 11 yards. Dalton remains one of the top backups in the league.

  • Panthers' Andy Dalton: Adds/Streamers (QB Preview)

    The Vikings have allowed the third-most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season, with Baker Mayfield's 19 points in Week 1 being the lowest total they've surrendered. Dalton is a pro's pro who will find the open man, which isn't hard to do against Minnesota. Dalton is a very good QB2 as long as Bryce Young remains sidelined.

  • Panthers' Andy Dalton: Week 4 Waiver Priority List

    Dalton might only get one more start in place of Bryce Young (ankle), but he should be considered a starter in Superflex and two-quarterback leagues in Week 4 against Minnesota. Dalton did great in Week 3 at Seattle with 361 passing yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions, along with 11 rushing yards, for 27.5 Fantasy points. The Vikings have allowed multiple touchdowns to all three quarterbacks they've faced this season, and Dalton has the chance for another quality outing at home. He's worth at least 20 percent of your FAB.

  • Panthers' Andy Dalton: Set for Week 3 start

    Dalton is slated to start Sunday's road matchup against the Seahawks with top quarterback Bryce Young (ankle) ruled out, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports. Dalton has worked with Carolina's first-team offense in practice all week with Young sidelined, so he should be prepared for his first start in a Panthers uniform. The 35-year-old veteran showcased accuracy and efficiency across his 14 starts with the Saints last season, but he now faces the challenge of managing a different wide receiver corps headlined by Adam Thielen, DJ Chark and Jonathan Mingo. Considering that Young ranks last among qualified QBs with 4.2 yards per attempt through the first two games of the season, though, Dalton stepping in under center could provide a modest boost for Carolina's passing offense.

  • Panthers' Andy Dalton: Trending toward Week 3 start

    Dalton will work with the first-team offense at Thursday's practice with Bryce Young (ankle) sitting out the session and appears to be in line to start Sunday's game in Seattle, Joe Person of The Athletic reports. Young picked up the ankle injury at some point during Monday's 20-17 loss to the Saints and will now be listed as a non-participant on the Panthers' first two Week 3 practice reports. Though Young could get back on the field Friday to practice in some fashion, David Newton of notes that Thursday's session is the most critical of the week for the Panthers with regard to installing their game plan for the matchup with Seattle. Additionally, Person notes that Dalton is set to meet with the media Thursday, an indication the Panthers are planning to proceed with him as their starter for Week 3. The 35-year-old is little more than a competent game manager at this stage of his career, but Dalton's experience, accuracy and ability to limit mistakes might be enough to lift up a Carolina offense that has struggled under Young's stewardship for the first two weeks of the season.

  • Panthers' Andy Dalton: Leads starters with Young injured

    Dalton led the starting offense in Wednesday's practice with Bryce Young unavailable due to an ankle injury, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports. Young wasn't removed from Monday's 20-17 loss to the Saints -- apart from one short-yardage snap that Dalton took -- but the rookie apparently injured his ankle at some point and is now looking iffy for Sunday's game in Seattle. It might help the Carolina pass catchers if Dalton ends up under center for a week or two, as Young ranks last among qualified passers with 4.2 yards per attempt through the first two games of the season.

  • Panthers' Andy Dalton: Shakes off back injury

    Dalton (back) completed six of his 11 pass attempts for 61 yards and an interception in Friday's 26-17 preseason loss to the Lions. Dalton had missed over a week of practice due to a back injury, but it never seemed particularly serious. The veteran is expected to to be the backup to 2023 No. 1 overall pick Bryce Young after the Panthers announced the rookie would operate as the team's starter all the way back in July. The team's 2022 third-round pick, Matt Corral, will likely operate as the team's No. 3 quarterback in the event he's on the 53-man roster to start the season.

  • Panthers' Andy Dalton: Passed over for starting gig

    Dalton is expected to open the season as Carolina's No. 2 quarterback after head coach Frank Reich announced Wednesday that he views Bryce Young as the team's starter, David Newton of reports. "Yes, he's QB1," Reich said of Young. Even though Young was selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft in April, Dalton still opened summer workouts atop the depth chart, but it didn't take long for the rookie to pass him up. Young ended up working with the first-team offense during minicamp in June, and the Panthers evidently saw enough from the Alabama product in those sessions to convince the coaching staff that he wouldn't need to battle Dalton for the starting gig in camp. Dalton likely signed a two-year deal with Carolina in March with the understanding that he wouldn't be much more than an insurance policy at quarterback in 2023, coming off a solid if unspectacular season with the Saints in which he posted an 18:9 TD:INT and 7.6 YPA. He'll still profile as one of the more accomplished backup signal-callers in the league and should be able to keep the Carolina offense afloat in the event Young misses time at any point this season.

  • Panthers' Andy Dalton: Taking second-team reps

    Head coach Frank Reich noted Thursday that Dalton is slated continue to work with the second team during next week's minicamp, while rookie Bryce Young handles first-team reps, David Newton of reports. The report notes that Dalton was listed as the starting quarterback during the first two weeks of voluntary offseason workouts and began each drill with the first unit, though Young saw more first-team reps . While Young has yet to be officially confirmed as Carolina's Week 1 starter, that's the expected outcome and his elevated responsibilities in practice represent "the next step" to that end, per coach Frank Reich. Dalton was brought in by the Panthers in March after starting in 14 games for the Saints last season, and assuming all goes as planned he'll serve as a veteran backup/mentor for Young this coming season.

  • Panthers' Andy Dalton: Working with first-string offense

    Dalton will work with the first-team offense during summer OTAs, David Newton of reports. This isn't entirely surprising given Bryce Young, the No. 1 overall selection in the 2023 NFL Draft, has had essentially two weeks to look over the team's playbook. It wouldn't be a shock to hear head coach Frank Reich give the veteran Dalton every opportunity to win the starting job out of preseason, if only to let Young really get his feet wet at the professional level, but given the sheer draft capital invested in the Alabama product, it's hard to imagine Dalton will see first-string reps for very long.

  • Saints' Andy Dalton: Sleeper QBs

    Can you trust Dalton in Week 18? Given the matchup with Carolina at home, I think you can. The Panthers have allowed at least 26 Fantasy points to quarterbacks in two of the past three games, and Carolina is down its top cornerbacks in Jaycee Horn (wrist) and Donte Jackson (Achilles). Dalton has scored at least 18 Fantasy points in three of his past four home starts, and hopefully he ends the 2022 campaign on a high note.

  • Saints' Andy Dalton: Nothing special in win

    Dalton completed 18 of 22 passes for 204 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 20-10 win over the Eagles. Dalton and the Saints were in surprisingly positive game script throughout the contest, so he wasn't asked to do much. He threw an interception just before halftime deep in Philadelphia territory, but Dalton otherwise managed the game effectively. Despite the victory, Dalton has now failed to throw for multiple touchdowns in four of his last five games, and he's topped 204 passing yards just once in that span.

  • Saints' Andy Dalton: Decreased role in tough conditions

    Dalton completed eight of 15 passes for 92 yards and one interception during Saturday's 17-10 win over Cleveland. Dalton attempted a season-low 15 passes during Saturday's frigid temperatures and steady winds. With top wideout Chris Olave (hamstring) inactive, the 35-year-old signal-caller was also let down with multiple drops by New Orleans' receivers. This included an interception late in the first quarter on a pass that bounced off the hands of tight end Juwan Johnson and directly to awaiting Browns safety Grant Delpit. Dalton went on to attempt just seven passes over the remaining three quarters of the game, as the Saints offense shifted to an option rushing attack between versatile quarterback Taysom Hill and running back Alvin Kamara. However, Dalton still accounted for all of the team's passing attempts in this game, so this unique game plan is unlikely to affect his status as the team's starting quarterback moving forward.

  • Saints' Andy Dalton: Efficient in limited role

    Dalton went 11-for-17 passing for 151 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 21-18 victory versus the Falcons. Dalton logged season lows in passing yards and attempts during the Saints' run-heavy attack Week 15. He also wasn't involved in the team's longest play from scrimmage, as change-of-pace quarterback Taysom Hill connected with Rashid Shaheed for a 68-yard touchdown in the first quarter. However, Dalton once again showed why he deserves to be the team's starting quarterback, completing at least 64 percent of his passes for the eighth time in his 11 starts this season. He also connected with Juwan Johnson for two touchdowns during the tight end's return from a one-game absence due to an ankle injury. Dalton's fantasy upside should remain limited if New Orleans continues to utilize a two-quarterback approach Week 16 versus Cleveland.

  • Saints' Andy Dalton: Bounces back with big win

    Dalton was 21-for-25 passing for 260 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 27-20 victory over the Rams. Amid speculation about whether Jameis Winston should take over as New Orleans' starting quarterback, Dalton responded with his best outing of the season Week 11. Despite taking three sacks while working behind a patchwork offensive line, the 35-year-old was able to complete all but four of his pass attempts in the face of a Rams pass rush headlined by Aaron Donald. The quarterback also threw a game-long 53-yard touchdown pass to Chris Olave down the middle of the field in the third quarter, putting the Saints up 24-14. While this performance should secure Dalton's starting job for the time being, he's set for another tough test next week against the 49ers.

  • Saints' Andy Dalton: Adds/Streamers (QB Preview)

    Dalton has been miserable lately, but at 17 FPPG on the season, that's about as much as you can ask from a streamer this week.

  • Saints' Andy Dalton: Adds/Streamers (QB Preview)

    Dalton has another plus matchup and looks to be locked in as the starter, for now. I still have some concern Jameis Winston could replace Dalton f things go sour and Tayson Hill is playing way too much for my liking. For that reason, Dalton is more of a bye-week replacement. I would start him over Matthew Stafford.

  • Saints' Andy Dalton: Throws two TDs

    Dalton completed 22 of 30 passes for 229 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 24-0 win over the Raiders. Dalton found tailback Alvin Kamara on both of his scores. Without any turnovers or sacks, it was a clean performance from the veteran signal-caller, who was picked off three times in the Week 7 defeat to the Cardinals. On the back of his first multi-touchdown win as a Saint, Dalton has helped his stock ahead of his upcoming matchup versus the Ravens.

  • Saints' Andy Dalton: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    This will either be Dalton or a placeholder for Jameis Wintson because whoever starts for the Saints should have the chance for a quality performance this week against the Raiders. Las Vegas has allowed every quarterback this season to score at least 20 Fantasy points, and the Raiders allow an average of 27.8 points per game to the position. Dalton just had a season-high 34 Fantasy points against the Cardinals in Week 7, and either him or Winston would have the chance for 20-plus points this week, especially if Michael Thomas (foot) or Jarvis Landry (ankle) could get healthy to help Chris Olave. Keep an eye on who starts for the Saints this week, and that quarterback would be a good streamer in all leagues.
