Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton struggled in Week 5. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton struggled against the Miami Dolphins defense in Week 5. The Bengals signal-caller threw for 234 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions. Despite being favored, Dalton and the Bengals fell to Miami.

Fantasy Analysis: In some weeks, Dalton will be fantastic and in others, he will be just terribly inefficient. The biggest issue with Dalton is consistency and that keeps him pretty much off fantasy radars. Most serious players aren't in a position to start Dalton. There are a number of second- and third-tier QBs that would be better options than Dalton. Until Dalton can prove he can be a consistent passer in this league, he will continue to be ignored by fantasy owners.
