SIT ‘EM #1

1. player. 56. Week 2 Projected Points: 18. Quarterback. Bengals. Andy Dalton

It should obviously go without saying to not start either of the Texans quarterbacks, but I didn’t want to waste an entry on that since I highly doubt many of you have Savage or Watson on your roster. Now onto the less obvious entires!

Dalton struggled mightily last week against a defense worse than Houston’s.

Andy Dalton had one of the worst quarterback performances ever during his team’s 20-0 shutout loss to the Ravens on Sunday. As such, if you have Dalton and even considered playing him, don’t do it.

The Texans aren’t a bad defense, especially not through the air. They allowed Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles to throw for only 125 yards and were not the sole reason their team lost as badly as they did.

Dalton struggled mightily last week against a defense worse than Houston’s. He threw four bad interceptions and I’m not sure why anyone would be jumping at the chance to play him this week. Keep Andy Dalton on the bench until he proves he can play a game without throwing a nasty pick.
