After all those years of watching mediocre quarterback play from Andy Dalton, the Cincinnati Bengals finally have a real future at the position, and something to be excited about, with the addition of Joe Burrus, the first overall pick in this year’s draft. And while the winning hasn’t really started yet, he’s already looking like the franchise cornerstone they needed. He’s not been the best fantasy option, but he has value as a streamer.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bengals QB Joe Burrow

Burrow has 1,617 passing yards this season, along with six touchdowns and four picks. His best game of the season came back in Week 2, a three-touchdown outing against the Browns. It just so happens that the Bengals are replaying the Browns this Sunday.

Opposing quarterbacks are averaging more than 22 points per game against Cleveland. Four out of six quarterbacks they’ve faced have thrown for multiple touchdowns, including Burrow.

He’s a solid streaming option this week.
