Thursday Night Football: Andy Dalton Looks to Continue His Hot Streak
No fantasy football quarterback, and arguably any real football quarterback, has been better than Andy Dalton over the last three weeks.
1,034 yards, 11 touchdowns and just two interceptions – a near 60-point increase within the passing net expected points (NEP) metric (click here to learn about net expected points). That’s what Andy Dalton has done against the Bills, Lions and Jets.
While plenty of fantasy owners are hitting the wire thinking they’ve got a surefire top-10 option, us nerdy folk aren’t ready to dub Andy Dalton as anything more than streaky just yet.
His Bengals will face off against the Dolphins tonight to kick of Week 9. Should we expect his top-tier play to continue, or fall back to his typical redheaded self?
