Andy Dalton Could See The Start In Week 3

Thursday, September 21, 7:31 PM

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.

C.J. Beathard Looks Like The QB2 For Jacksonville

Sunday, August 27, 3:07 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback C.J. Beathard went 8-for-10 for 134 yards, a touchdown, and a near-perfect passer rating of 152.1 in Saturday's 31-18 preseason win over the Miami Dolphins. The vet came into camp with a leg up on rookie Nathan Rourke for the QB2 spot behind Trevor Lawrence, but the latter has been applying some pressure with his play through two games. Beathard was the second QB to take over after Lawrence in this one, leading three consecutive scoring drives to close out the first half. The performance was highlighted by a 74-yard touchdown strike to sophomore wide receiver Tim Jones, who broke open on the left side of the field and cruised in untouched for the score. Rourke quarterbacked the entire second half of the game, which saw the Jaguars put up two more touchdowns. Still, the Ohio native finished with a measly 74 passing yards on only six attempts, as Jacksonville opted to go with a more ground-heavy attack. At this point, Beathard has held onto his QB2 position but is still firmly off the fantasy radar unless something happens to Lawrence.
