The Cincinnati Bengals are all set to play the Washington Football Team this week, a game with very little consequence in the big picture of the season, but one that could see a bounce back performance from Cincy’s rookie quarterback, Joe Burrow. Could he be of use in fantasy this week?
Fantasy Football analysis: Bengals QB Joe Burrow
Burrow is coming off a rough outing last week against the Steelers. He threw the ball 40 times in that one, but only completed just over 52 percent of his passes, a season low. He finished with 213 yards and a touchdown. The two games before that, Burrow was on a hot streak, combining for five touchdowns and more than 650 yards in those two outings.
Washington has been tough on opposing quarterbacks this season, but Matthew Stafford of the Lions exposed some vulnerability last week. The Football Team allowed three touchdown passes and 276 to Stafford in that one. Burrow should get back on track here.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Joe Burrow.
