Andy Dalton (QB, CIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups

David Paul - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Stash in Deep Leagues

ANALYSIS: Dalton is looking like a more efficient version of his 2012 self.  He is still a mid-tier QB who makes for a good real football player but a fairly unexciting fantasy option.  Dalton has thrown for 282, 280 and 235 yards with five TD and three INT in three games.  He needs to get A.J. Green much more involved if he wants to rack up the passing yards.  Green had a great Week One, going for 162 yards, but he failed to top 50 yards in either of Weeks Two or Three.  As defenses double-team Green, Dalton will need a viable #2 that is better than Mohamed Sanu.  His TE combo of Tyler Eifert and Jermaine Gresham stand to benefit if no other WRs are able to separate themselves.  Week Four against Cleveland projects as an easier matchup for Dalton, as the Browns' D is middling against the pass and weak against the run.
