Tops 300 yards in loss
Dalton completed 33 of 48 passes for 325 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions and rushed once for seven yards in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings. He ended the season with 1,515 passing yards, eight touchdown passes and nine interceptions over eight games.
On the season, Dalton had six starts, but in only one of those contests did he have more touchdown passes than interceptions. Although he technically has a $5 million contract in 2022, it's a void year, and the Bears would owe him nothing if they choose to part ways with the 11-year veteran. Regardless, he'll likely continue to be a useful backup in the league in his age-34 season, and his fantasy value would be dependent upon whether he's able to draw any starts.
