Player Outlook
Blessed with the best receiving corps in football, a pass-first play-caller and an improved offensive line, Burrow is a safe top-five quarterback for Fantasy. In 28 career games with Ja'Marr Chase, Burrow has topped 22 Fantasy points 18 times. And while Burrow's efficiency technically dropped in his third season, he saw an uptick in pass attempts to more than make up for it. And this year, he'll have what's projected to be an easier schedule to help him further. The expectations are set: Burrow is viewed as a 4,500-yard passer with 32-plus touchdown potential along with some rushing production. He may not be explosive enough as a thrower or a runner to be the No. 1 overall Fantasy Football quarterback, but he's a mortal lock to be close. Expect him to be the fourth, fifth or sixth quarterback off the board in every draft.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Anticipates throwing by OTAs

    Burrow (wrist) said Monday that he thinks he will be cleared to resume throwing during OTAs this spring, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. Burrow underwent season-ending surgery on his right wrist shortly after Thanksgiving Day and missed the final seven games of the 2023 campaign, finishing the season with 2,309 passing yards, 15 touchdowns and six interceptions on a 66.9 percent completion rate. He should be fully recovered well ahead of training camp next summer.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Struggles with turnovers Sunday

    Burrow completed 27 of 40 passes for 347 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions and added five carries for 20 yards in the Bengals' 30-27 loss to the Texans on Sunday. He also committed a fumble recovered by Cincinnati. Burrow finished the afternoon with a perfectly acceptable fantasy stat line, but his pair of fourth-quarter interceptions were particularly detrimental despite neither directly leading to Texans points. His first pick came at Houston's 11-yard line, while the second transpired in the end zone and short-circuited what had been an encouraging seven-play, 78-yard drive. Burrow's highlights did include a picturesque 64-yard touchdown strike to Ja'Marr Chase, which was preceded by a 32-yard scoring toss to Trenton Irwin to cap off Cincinnati's opening possession. Burrow may not have Tee Higgins (hamstring) back for a critical Week 11 divisional road clash against the Ravens on Thursday night, but he'll head into the contest with two- and five-game streaks of 300-yard tallies and multi-touchdown efforts, respectively.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Play improves with health

    Burrow completed 31 of 44 pass attempts for 348 yards with two touchdowns and no turnovers in Sunday's 24-18 win over the Bills. Burrow turned in another masterful passing performance in his second game coming out of Cincinnati's bye in Week 7. The young superstar has completed 78 percent of his passes for 631 yards and five touchdowns in those two contests after a lingering calf injury limited his play out of the gates. Now that he is seemingly back at full strength, Burrow should resume his upper echelon status in fantasy while boosting his top receivers' projections for a home matchup against Houston's 24th-ranked pass defense next Sunday.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: QBs to Start

    I don't think you have to fear starting Burrow against the 49ers this week, and he remains a top-10 Fantasy option for me in Week 8. His calf injury is hopefully behind him, and he is averaging 23.6 Fantasy points in his past two outings against the Cardinals and Seahawks. San Francisco allowed Kirk Cousins to pass for 378 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Week 7, and Burrow is rested coming off a bye week. He scored 34.7 Fantasy points after his bye in 2022 at Pittsburgh in Week 11, and hopefully he can have another strong outing in this matchup with the 49ers.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: QBs to Start

    I wrote in Start 'Em & Sit 'Em last week that I needed to see Burrow look like Burrow again before we could start him with confidence. Well, he's back, and hopefully the best is yet to come. Burrow lit up the Cardinals for 317 passing yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 5, with all three scores going to Ja'Marr Chase. For the first time this season, Burrow didn't seem to be bothered by the calf he originally injured at the beginning of training camp, and he should have another quality outing against Seattle on Sunday. Two of the past three quarterbacks to face the Seahawks (Jared Goff and Andy Dalton) have scored at least 27.5 Fantasy points.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Sneaky Sleeper (Lineup Decisions)

    Look, if there's a matchup Burrow could piece together a decent stat line in, this would be it. Or Denver. Or Chicago. You get the gist. The Cardinals pass rush shouldn't be too dangerous and Burrow, now over a month into his season, figures to eventually show some signs of improvement with his health. In no way is he a must start, and there's plenty of good reason to go with Trevor Lawrence, Russell Wilson, C.J. Stroud and even Joshua Dobbs over him, but there's some mild appeal that should at least keep him in lineups over Dak Prescott and Daniel Jones.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: QBs to Sit

    At some point, hopefully, Burrow is going to look like a standout Fantasy quarterback again, but right now he's struggling with his calf injury. He's scored 8.2 Fantasy points or less in three of four games this season, including two in a row, and he might not have a healthy Tee Higgins (ribs) in Week 5 at Arizona. I hope I'm wrong by putting Burrow in this section of the column, and the Cardinals have allowed two of the past three opposing quarterbacks to score at least 23.2 Fantasy points. But until we see Burrow look like Burrow, I'm going to lean toward sitting him in most one-quarterback leagues.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: No designation for Week 4

    Burrow (calf) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game in Tennessee. Listed as questionable ahead of the Bengals' Week 3 game against the Rams after aggravating a calf injury late in the team's Week 2 loss to the Ravens, Burrow ultimately suited up and played 100 percent of the offensive snaps in the 19-16 win over Los Angeles, completing 26 of 49 pass attempts for 259 yards, no touchdowns and one interception. Though the Bengals are facing a shorter turnaround for their Week 4 game against the Titans, Burrow nonetheless appears to be in a better spot on the health front. In addition to avoiding an injury designation for Sunday's contest, Burrow was listed as a full practice participant Wednesday through Friday.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Sit Him (Lineup Decisions)

    The Bengals have an interesting dilemma: They haven't been able to dominate with the run much this season, and now they face a matchup where they'll almost certainly have to throw a lot. The good news is that Tennessee just hasn't been good against the pass and, against these receivers, could be burned by broken coverage if they play a lot of man. I wouldn't expect a big game from Burrow, but he could still find 225 yards and two touchdowns, which sounds like next to nothing considering the investment Fantasy managers made in him. I'd rather play a QB with upside including Russell Wilson, Anthony Richardson, Daniel Jones and even Justin Fields.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Full participant in walkthrough

    Burrow (calf) was listed as a full participant on Wednesday's estimated injury report, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. Burrow hasn't been his usual dynamic self this season since suffering a calf injury in the early days of training camp. After aggravating the injury late in Week 2, Burrow was listed as questionable heading into Monday's game against the Rams, but he ultimately suited up. While helping to guide Cincinnati to a 19-16 win, Burrow completed 26 of 49 passes for 259 yards, no touchdowns and one interception. The Bengals held a walk-through practice Wednesday, so Burrow's listed activity level should be taken with a grain of salt, especially after head coach Zac Taylor told Ben Baby of ESPN.com that Burrow's workload will be watched closely each day this week. With that knowledge, Burrow's status should continue to be monitored ahead of Sunday's game at Tennessee.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Pushing to play Monday

    Burrow (calf) intends to try and suit up for Monday night's game against the Rams, barring any setbacks, Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Burrow appears to be trending in the right direction for Monday Night Football, but a final word on his status may not come until closer to Monday's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff. The star quarterback is officially listed as questionable for Week 3, but he's reportedly continued to feel better as the week has progressed, and he took first-team reps during Sunday's walk-through practice. Jake Browning would be in line to start for Cincinnati if Burrow's right calf injury doesn't react well during pregame warmups.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Took first snaps in walk-through

    Burrow (calf) took the first-team snaps in Sunday's walk-through practice, Jay Glazer reported on Fox NFL Sunday. The implication here is that Burrow is pushing to play and that the decision won't be made until Monday night. This activity contrasts with Friday's and Saturday's practices, where Burrow worked with the scout team.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Participating in warmups

    Burrow (calf) was spotted participating in Saturday's practice warmups, Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. We'll find out Burrow's official status likely later Saturday, but it sure seems as if this is a positive step toward the star quarterback playing Monday against the Rams. The 26-year-old also logged limited participation in Friday's practice.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Spotted at practice

    Burrow (calf) was present for Friday's practice, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports. Dehner relays that Burrow was on the field with his shoulder pads on, but it remains to be seen how the Bengals will list the QB's Friday practice participation. Burrow was listed as a non-participant Thursday in the team's initial practice ahead of Monday night's game against the Rams.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Doesn't practice Thursday

    Burrow (calf) was listed as a non-participant in practice Thursday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. Head coach Zac Taylor previously relayed that the Bengals plan to take it "day-to-day" with Burrow and "assess [him] each day," per Hobson, For his part, Burrow was non-committal about his availability for Monday's game against the Rams, according to Hobson. Burrow now has two more chances to practice before the Bengals determine whether or not he'll approach the contest with an injury designation.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Held under 100 yards in Week 1

    Burrow completed 14 of 31 passes for 82 yards and rushed once for minus-1 yard in Sunday's 24-3 loss to the Browns. Burrow looked rusty after missing the entire preseason due to a calf injury, failing to lead the Bengals to any first-half points while throwing for a paltry 36 yards in slick Cleveland conditions. Cincinnati finally got a field goal in the third quarter, but things didn't get any better for Burrow, who failed to crack the 100-yard mark before being removed from the game when Cincinnati waved the white flag in the fourth quarter. Burrow will look to get over this disastrous season opener in the Week 2 home opener against a Ravens defense that just held the Texans without a touchdown.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Slated to play in opener

    Coach Zac Taylor confirmed Friday that Burrow (calf) will play in Sunday's season opener against the Browns, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports. Burrow, who's bouncing back from a strained right calf, practiced fully Wednesday and Thursday and will be available to start the Bengals' season opener on the heels of agreeing to a five-year, $275 million extension with the team, per Ben Baby of ESPN.com. With the QB's calf issue no longer impacting his playing status and his contract situation resolved, Burrow is poised to continue to helm a productive Cincinnati passing attack that features the returning starting wide receiver trio of Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Practices fully Wednesday

    Burrow (calf) was listed as a full practice participant Wednesday. Burrow has been bouncing back from a strained right calf, but now that he's practicing fully, the quarterback said that he's "ready to go" for Week 1 action. Assuming he experiences no setbacks in practices Thursday and Friday, Burrow is on track to start Sunday's season opener against the Browns and is thus slated to continue to helm a productive Bengals passing attack that welcomes back its starting receiver trio of Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd .

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Deemed day-to-day

    Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said Monday that Burrow (calf) is day-to-day as Sunday's season opener against the Browns approaches, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports. Taylor has yet to confirm Burrow's Week 1 status, but the quarterback appears to be trending in the right direction ahead of Sunday's contest. Added context on that front should arrive no later than Wednesday, when the Bengals' first official practice report of the season is posted.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Making progress

    During his Monday press conference, coach Zac Taylor noted that Burrow, who is dealing with a calf strain, "looks great" at this stage of his recovery, Kelsey Conwayof the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "Physically just walking around he looks probably as good as he's ever looked at this point. That's a positive, and we will just go from there," Taylor indicated of the Bengals' franchise QB, who hasn't practiced since July 27. While a timetable for Burrow's return to action has yet to be outlined by the team, Conway suggests that based off his pregame workout before the Bengals' Aug. 11 preseason game against the Packers -- during which the signal-caller was spotted running and throwing -- it appears at though he's trending in the right direction ahead of Week 1.
