Joe Burrow could have a breakout game against the Browns in Week 2.

Joe Burrow lost his NFL debut to the Los Angeles Chargers in a heartbreaker. Penalties, dropped passes, and a missed field goal plagued the Cincinnati Bengals down the stretch. Can the top pick in the 2020 NFL Draft bounce back in Week 2 against the Browns?

Fantasy Football Analysis: Bengals QB Joe Burrow

Burrow threw for 193 yards and interception against the Chargers’ top-notch secondary. Those numbers don’t pop, but he showcased the ability to make plays with his legs and rushed for 46 yards and a score as well. Lamar Jackson ran up the score against Cleveland by throwing for 275 yards and three scores in Week 1, so Burrow should be confident through the air. This could be a big game for A.J. Green.

Start/Sit Recommendation

If Burrow can keep the Bengals competitive against the best of the best, I think he’ll be viable against the Browns. He’s worth starting in season-long fantasy if your other quarterbacks have tough matchups.
