Andy Dalton may not be great, but he is at least adequate. That’s something to value considering how toothless the Dallas Cowboys’ offense looked during his two-game absence earlier this year. This week, Dalton will try to best the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Football analysis: Cowboys QB Andy Dalton

Dalton has an 8:3 touchdown-to-interception ratio over his last four games, although he exceeded 215 passing yards just once in that span. It’s tough to say what kind of defense he will face in Week 15; the 49ers have seen three QBs throw for four touchdowns against them this season. It most recently occurred in Week 13 with Josh Allen roasting the Niners. But this defense has given up only nine passing scores in its 10 other games. The 49ers held Jared Goff to six DraftKings points in Week 12 and permitted just 108 passing yards to the Washington Football Team last Sunday.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Dalton ($5,400) has the receivers to be good enough to start in a two-QB league. But ask yourself this: Do you really want to put your fantasy playoff life in the hands of Andy Dalton? You know the answer.
