It’s still way early in the offseason, but everyone always has fun making their predictions on how players will do in the upcoming season. I will make some individual player predictions based on how I see it all shaking out now. This one is going to be strictly players from offense. Injuries are the biggest concern, so as long as these players stay healthy, this is how it’s going to go.

Andy Dalton, QB-

All Bengals fans and a lot of football fans were impressed with how Andy exceeded expectations last year. There is a lot our there about sophomore slumps and whether they are real or not. Regardless, Dalton will shine again this season. He has a lot of weapons and an upgraded offensive line. Add with that, a full offseason schedule and an expanded playbook, this season should give a better example of what kind of production to expect from him.

In his rookie season last year, Dalton threw for 3,398 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions. He is still going to make some mistakes as he continues to adjust to the NFL, but his numbers this year will be even better. He will be airing it out more this year and the running backs will play a bigger role in the passing game. His numbers will certainly go up.
