Andy Dalton is back and in our DraftKings lineup

Each week I’ll comb through the options at each position to bring you my picks for the players with the best combination of safety and upside over a wide price range. These are guys you’ll use in cash games for the most part, but there’s nothing wrong with slotting a couple into your tournament lineups as well for stability.


DK Deal



Andy Dalton $6000: He’s baaaaaack. Dalton is PFF’s most efficient QB is back and still underpriced. The matchup with Pittsburgh is a historically low scoring game but with Big Ben expected back and Dalton playing the best football of his career, I see a shootout coming.

While I like Roethlisberger and his receivers in tournaments, I think Dalton is a safe cash game play. His 14:2 TD:INT ratio is right there with Brady (through six games) and Rodgers but he’s priced so much lower. He’s got a full cadre of weapons around him, including Giovanni Bernard. I am playing Marvin Jones a ton this weekend—at $4200 he’s been getting a ton of targets (20 in the last two games) and gets an easy cornerback matchup with Antwon Blake, part of Pittsburgh’s worst rated pass coverage unit.
