Fantasy Football analysis: Bengals QB Joe Burrow

Burrow had his best performance of the season against the Ravens, throwing 23-for-38 for 416 yards and three touchdowns. He turned up the heat in the second half, connecting with CJ Uzomah and Ja’Marr Chase in the third quarter to put the game out of reach for Baltimore, ending a five-game losing streak against the Ravens in the process. With a total of 17 touchdowns through seven games, he’ll go up against a Jets team that’s 1-5 on the season in a favorable Week 8 matchup.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
