Shark Bites

11:31am EDT 10/3/21

Bears QB Andy Dalton (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Lions. QB Justin Fields will make his 2nd career start. The 1st was a disaster, but he’s in a much better spot at home for Detroit today. Still, Fields is only an option in 2-QB leagues and DFS tournaments.

Recent Shark Bites

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.

Saints QB Andy Dalton will start Sunday's game vs. the Rams, HC Dennis Allen said Wednesday. Dalton has been bad the past 2 weeks, averaging just 6.9 yards per attempt with 2 TDs but 3 INTs. Allen said the staff considered going back to QB Jameis Winston but that he still isn't 100% healthy and might not be for the rest of the season.

Saints QB Andy Dalton threw for just 174 yards, with 1 TD and 2 INTs in Sunday's loss at Pittsburgh. It was just his 2nd multi-INT game of the year but the 5th time in 7 starts that Dalton has thrown just 1 TD pass. New Orleans fell short of 200 total yards and scored just 10 points. We wouldn't be surprised to see coaches switch back to QB Jameis Winston ahead of next Sunday's home date with the Rams.

Saints HC Dennis Allen said Wednesday that he's sticking with QB Andy Dalton as his starter. "Jameis [Winston] is back healthy right now. We're going to go with Andy as we sit here right now," Allen said. "If we continue to play well offensively and move the ball offensively, Andy will stay in there." The Saints are 1-3 under Dalton, but they're averaged 31 points per game. It's been a run-leaning offense, with Dalton averaging just 32.8 pass attempts per game. He ranks 16th among QBs in fantasy points per game over the last 4 weeks. Consider this good news for RB Alvin Kamara -- although there's still a solid chance New Orleans goes back to Winston at some point this season.

Saints HC Dennis Allen confirmed to NFL Network's Omar Ruiz that QB Andy Dalton will start tonight's game vs. the Cardinals. Dalton is only in play in 2-QB leagues and 1-game DFS contests.
