We go over the fantasy football outlook of Andy Dalton ahead of the Cowboys Week 12 matchup against Washington.

Andy Dalton returned from a two-game layoff in Week 11 after missing time because of a concussion and threw for three touchdowns to top the Minnesota Vikings 31-28. He suffered a concussion in a 25-3 loss the last time he faced the Washington Football Team but will get a shot at redemption in Week 12. Let’s go over his fantasy football outlook for Thanksgiving.

Fantasy Football analysis: Cowboys QB Andy Dalton

Dalton was far from effective against Washington earlier this season and was only 9-of-19 passing for 75 yards with one interception. While he did throw three touchdown passes on Sunday he only tallied 203 passing yards. Dalton’s TD to pick ratio (1:1) isn’t great and he’s only eclipsed 250 passing yards once this season. Washington generates a ton of pressure up front and ranks third in sacks with 32, so Dalton probably won’t have a ton of time to operate.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Washington has kept the score low in most games this season, so I’d sit Dalton in this rematch.
