Andy Dalton Throws For 361 Yards In Loss

Monday, September 25, 2:32 PM

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.

No Practice For Derek Carr On Wednesday

Wednesday, September 27, 8:21 PM

New Orleans Saints quarterback Derek Carr (shoulder) was unable to practice on Wednesday. Carr is week-to-week heading into Week 4 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday after suffering an AC joint sprain in his right shoulder in the Week 3 loss to the Green Bay Packers. The 32-year-old is unlikely to make a return this week. Backup Jameis Winston didn't look good at all after taking over for the injured Carr last Sunday, but he's in line to make his first start of 2023 in Week 4. Winston could fare better with a full week to prepare with starter's repetitions in practice, and the Saints offense is also getting running back Alvin Kamara back from suspension. The 29-year-old Winston will be in play as a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues if Carr is officially ruled out.
