Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow completed 25-of-39 passes for 313 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts and he rushed for two yards and a score.
Huddle Up: Burrow has gone without a touchdown pass in each of his past two outings while throwing an interception in each of his past three. The good news is that he has four 300-yard performances in the previous five starts. However, that's not enough to get him out of the QB2 fantasy neighborhood. The Bengals host the Browns in Week 7. Burrow had his best showing of the season in Cleveland in Week 2, throwing for a season-high 316 yards and three TDs.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow went 19-for-30 for 183 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Burrow played well in the previous three games but was not able to do much against the Ravens. He has thrown six touchdowns and three interceptions in five games this season and should only be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow threw for 300 yards for the third straight game, completing 25 of his 36 passes for 300 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 33-25 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Burrow has looked every bit the part of a future franchise quarterback. He has a tough Week 5 matchup with Baltimore on tap, but Burrow is a streaming option against friendlier opponents.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow completed 31-of-44 passes for 312 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles despite being sacked a career-high eight times.
Huddle Up: Burrow has gone over 300 yards for the second consecutive game, and he has back-to-back multi-touchdown performances. Hopefully his offensive line will give him a little more protection going forward, or injuries could rear their ugly head sooner rather than later. He remains a QB2 in most fantasy leagues, but could get into the low-end QB1 territory if he keeps performing like this. The Bengals host the Jaguars in Week 4.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow completed 37 of 61 passes for 316 yards and three touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday, Sept. 17. He also ran seven times for 19 yards.
Huddle Up: With the Bengals playing from two scores down for much of the second half, Burrow found himself dropping back to throw on virtually every snap. Big plays were nearly nonexistent, forcing the rookie to matriculate the ball down the field a few yards at a time -- the team had 18 third-down plays and went 5-for-5 on fourth down. Once again, his poise was impressive, and he shook off big hits and mistakes. If Burrow is still kicking around on waivers he's worth scooping up based on his work through two games.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow completed 23 of 36 passes for 193 yards and an interception against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, Sept. 13. He also ran eight times for 46 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Unsurprisingly, the No. 1 overall pick had his share of ups and downs during his NFL debut. He looked panicky at times, throwing a backward pass that turned into a fumble and later a shovel pass that was intercepted. Burrow accounted for Cincy's only TD on a QB draw as well, and he looked poised on his final drive, having the potential game-winning TD erased on an OPI call and then watching his kicker miss a chip shot that would've sent the game into overtime. There's a long way to go for Burrow, who only holds value as a deep bench stash.

Cincinnati Bengals first-round draft choice QB Joe Burrow officially signed a four-year contract with the Bengals Friday, July 31. Official financial terms were not disclosed.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow is still on track to being the starting quarterback for the Bengals in Week 1 even though he did not practice during the offseason, according to head coach Zac Taylor.
Huddle Up: Burrow will not be able to play in any preseason games, so he probably will have struggles during the early part of the 2020 season. He should be selected in all keeper leagues but probably is more of a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in standard leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow agreed to terms Tuesday, July 28, on a four-year, $36 million rookie contract. The deal is fully guaranteed, and he'll receive $23.9 million in signing bonus money. Cincinnati has a team option for a fifth year, per NFL rules.
Huddle Up: The top pick in the draft is locked in for 2020, which wasn't ever in doubt. The Bengals have plenty of weapons to help ease his transition, but the abbreviated offseason and lack of a preseason undoubtedly will stunt his growth in the short term. Burrow isn't worth owning as more than a fringe QB2 in conventional games or respectable third QB gamble in best-ball drafts.

Cincinnati Bengals No. 1 overall draft pick QB Joe Burrow has impressed head coach Zac Taylor with his preparation for meetings and mental acumen. 'He's been great,' Taylor said. 'As advertised is the best way to put it. You can tell he spends a lot of time on his own being prepared with questions and he's doing a great job taking ownership, which is important for a quarterback to do, and he's doing everything he can to own this offense. Been really impressed with him, but not surprised.'
Huddle Up: Burrow looks the part, and he figures to have enough upside that he'll likely be one of the final QB1s or first QB2s taken.
