What You Need to Know:

  • Jameis Winston tore his left ACL in Week 8 last season. He was back on the practice field for OTAs.
  • Dalton signed a 1-year, $3 million contract with the Saints on March 29 (a little more than 2 weeks after the start of free agency).
  • New HC Dennis Allen said Taysom Hill will be focusing on TE heading into the coming season.
  • The Saints expect WR Michael Thomas back from the ankle injury that cost him all of 2021 and most of 2020. The team also drafted WR Chris Olave 11th overall and signed WR Jarvis Landry in free agency. No Saint collected more than 16.7% target share last season.
  • Dalton got just 2 starts for the Bears before a knee bruise accelerated the switch to Justin Fields.
  • After producing a solid 4.8% passing-TD rate across his 1st 8 seasons – and going 5% or better 8 times – Dalton has slipped to just 3.5% over the past 3 years. None of those 3 seasons has seen him eclipse 4.2%.
  • Dalton’s yards per attempt is also down over the same stretches: 6.5 vs. 7.2.
  • Dalton produced a career-worst 3.8% INT rate in 2021.
  • The 2021 Saints ran the league’s 3rd most run-heavy offense, rushing on 48.5% of offensive snaps. They were 5th most run heavy in 2020.
  • Sean Payton is gone, but the OC and passing-game coordinator/QBs coach return.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Dalton is relevant because Jameis Winston is coming off an ACL tear … and fairly erratic even when healthy. There’s no guarantee the Saints would keep Taysom Hill at TE if Winston were to go down, but that’s the stated plan for now. As Saints starter, Dalton would work with a much better set of pass-catchers than last year’s New Orleans offense sported. That makes him an interesting bench stash for deep superflex and 2-QB setups.

Andy Dalton, QB NO

Dalton successfully manages game in Week 17

Saints QB Andy Dalton finished with 18 completions on 22 attempts for 204 yards and 1 INT in Week 17's win vs. the Eagles. QB/TE hybrid Taysom Hill had his fair share of production as well, completing both of his pass attempts for 24 yards in addition to 46 rushing yards and a TD on the ground. The tandem approach has worked relatively well for the Saints all season, but it's far from an ideal circumstance for an NFL offense to rely upon. The pair will prepare to take on the Panthers in Week 18.

The forecast for today's Saints-Browns game calls for temperatures in the single digits with sustained winds of 20-25 mph and gusts of 40+. The wind chill is well below zero. They're brutal conditions that will significantly limit the passing and kicking games. Check out our projections for all the Saints and Browns players.

Saints QB Andy Dalton threw for 151 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's narrow win over the Falcons. He found TE Juwan Johnson for each score, from 19 and 22 yards out. He ceded the remaining TD toss to Taysom Hill, in a game that saw New Orleans attempt only 19 passes. The Saints visit another soft run defense in Cleveland in Week 16. Then comes a Philly defense that rates weak vs. the run and league best against the pass. Don't get excited about Dalton as an option for your fantasy football playoffs.

Coming off a pair of bad outings, Saints QB Andy Dalton proved efficient and productive in Sunday's win over the Rams. He completed 21 of 25 passes for 260 yards and 3 TDs. Dalton found WR Chris Olave for a 53-yard score, tossing his other 2 TDs to TE Juwan Johnson and WR Jarvis Landry. Olave was the only Saint to crack 50 receiving yards, taking his 5 catches for 102 yards. New Orleans heads to San Francisco in Week 12.
