Andy Dalton threw for 372 yards and 3 touchdowns in a victory against the Lions in week seven.
Analysis: Dalton has now thrown for over 700 yards and 6 touchdowns over the last two weeks. Both games were on the road and against respectable defenses(DET/BUF). Dalton has a tough test with the Jets in week eight but he must be considered with the byes coming up.
Luck, Rivers, Flacco have byes and so does Cutler who may be out for a long time. You must also consider that Alex Smith and Ben Roethlisberger have not been reliable lately. At the moment Andy Dalton is available in 20-75% of fantasy leagues. He isn’t the most reliable fantasy quarterback either but he sure beats the alternatives out there on the wire(Palmer, Glennon, Geno Smith, Alex Smith).
Ryan Tannehill’s stock is rising after big games against the Colts and Ravens earlier this year. Although he only threw for 194 yards at home against the Bills this week he did throw 3 touchdowns. Up next for Tannehill and the Dolphins are the Patriots in week eight. Tannehill is available in 50-85% of fantasy leagues.
