Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton threw three touchdowns in Week 3. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton pulled out a big win on Sunday against the now-competitive Washington Redskins. In the Week 3 match-up, Dalton threw 300-plus yards and three touchdowns, with only one interception. He played efficient football and found his playmakers.

Fantasy Analysis: Dalton had solid backup value, as the Bengals are pretty dependent upon him for offensive production. He's shown maturity beyond his years and is a smart, evolving young quarterback. 300-plus, multi-touchdown games may become more regular for Andy Dalton in the near future, so keep fantasy players should be sure to keep an eye on his production. If you already own him, feel free to start playing Dalton in favorable match-ups.
