Andy Dalton destroys Vikings in big fantasy line

The Vikings continued their ways of giving up points on Sunday and it led to a big day from Andy Dalton. We break down the fantasy implications.

Marc Lebryk-USA TODAY Sports

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was marvelous in Sunday's 42-14 victory over the Minnesota Vikings, completing 27-of-38 attempts for 366 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions.

it was a virtuoso performance with a passer rating of 136.5 and a yards-per-attempt average of 9.6. The Vikings have been demolished throughout the season and entered today allowing the most passing TDs in the NFL.

Dalton has been in a groove for the most part on the season and has picked it up significantly over the past couple months. In his last 10 games, Dalton scored 2.7 touchdowns per game. Plus, he hasn't thrown a pick in any of his last three games.

Fantasy impact: Things won't get much easier against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17. Dalton was picked off three times against the Ravens back on Nov. 10. He will be more of a high-end QB2 because he won't see the leaky Vikings defense again. Dalton has climbed his way into the top-10 quarterbacks for 2014 fantasy drafts.
