What to do with Joe Burrow in Week 3 fantasy football

Joe Burrow has thrown the ball more than any quarterback in the NFL, and that could make him dangerous against the Eagles in Week 3.

Joe Burrow is 0-2 as the Cincinnati Bengals’ starting quarterback, but has been given plenty of opportunities to make big plays. The rookie will be up against the 0-2 Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3 as he looks to get his first win as a pro. We’ll go over his fantasy football upside for Week 3 here.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bengals QB Joe Burrow

Burrow has thrown more passes (97) than any other quarterback in the NFL and racked up 61 in his last game against the Cleveland Browns. The Browns bottled up Joe Mixon with their impressive defensive line, and the Eagles are great at stopping the run as well. That means Burrow could be forced to dial up some big plays down the field with his arm again in Week 3.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Efficiency isn’t a given for Burrow, but his ceiling is high because of the volume of his passing attempts. He’ll have a chance to surpass 400 passing yards and throw for multiple scores for a second straight game.
