Carolina Panthers quarterback Andy Dalton completed 34 of his 58 passing attempts for 361 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the 27-37 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3. It was an impressive performance for the 35-year-old, who started in the absence of Bryce Young (ankle). Wide receivers Adam Thielen and DJ Chark both racked up at least 86 yards and a touchdown. If Young is out again in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings, Dalton will have upside in another favorable matchup for quarterbacks. However, it's important not to overreact to his big performance. He should not be started over big-name fantasy signal-callers.

Carolina Panthers quarterback Andy Dalton will be starting against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3 after Bryce Young (ankle) was ruled out. Dalton took first-team reps in practice all week in anticipation of Young missing the game. The 13-year veteran will be starting for his fifth different team in the last five seasons. In 2022, Dalton went 6-8 as a starter for the New Orleans Saints, throwing for 2,871 yards, 18 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. Seattle's defense has given up back-to-back 300-yard passing games in the first two weeks of the season, making Dalton worth starting in two-quarterback leagues and a viable streamer in traditional leagues with a thin wire.

Carolina Panthers quarterback Andy Dalton could be in line to make the start for his team in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. Starting signal-caller Bryce Young (ankle) has not practiced all week due to an ankle injury and is "unlikely to play" on Sunday, according to the team. Dalton has been practicing with the first team this week and would draw a plus matchup against a Seattle defense that is allowing the 11th-most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs through the first two games. Dalton was serviceable for the New Orleans Saints in 2022, throwing for 2,871 yards, 18 touchdowns, and nine interceptions in 14 games started. Dalton is on the radar as a QB3 in fantasy and is worth a speculative add for gamers who play in two-quarterback formats.
