Andy Dalton went 21-for-30 passing for 199 yards and four touchdowns during the Cincinnati Bengals' win over the New York Giants on Sunday. The four scores were spread out to four different pass catchers. A.J. Green was Dalton's favorite target, with seven receptions for 85 yards and a score.
Dalton's four touchdowns were a season-high. He did not throw an interception for the first time this season. He now has 18 touchdowns to 11 interceptions thrown on the season.
Fantasy Impact: Dalton should have been picked up off waivers a long time ago, but in case he's still available in your league, here's your reminder to snatch him up. Depending on the depth of your league, he may not be a weekly starter, but he is at least one of the top backups in standard formats.
The solid rapport with Green undoubtedly boosts Dalton's value. As long as the sophomore receiver is playing as well as he is, Dalton can be considered a viable starting option.
