Despite a hard-fought battle against the Baltimore Ravens, Joe Burrow couldn’t quite lead the Cincinnati Bengals to victory in Week 2, with the game ending in a 27-24 loss.
Fantasy Impact: The 26-year-old quarterback had a mixed performance, completing 27 of his 41 passing attempts for 222 yards, and throwing 2 touchdowns against 1 interception. He also added a modest 5 yards on the ground. While these numbers aren’t exactly eye-popping, they were enough to secure him the QB21 ranking for the week. However, his season-long rank of QB28 suggests that Burrow has room for improvement. His performance was marked by a series of short passes, with a few notable connections with receivers Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins. Unfortunately, an interception in the third quarter and a sack in the fourth quarter marred his performance. Looking ahead to Week 3, Burrow will be hoping to bounce back against the Los Angeles Rams. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on his progress heading into Week 3, as Burrow aggravated a calf injury that could cause him to miss practice time.
