Burrow went down with a torn ACL in Week 11. Through 10 weeks, he was fantasy’s No. 14 quarterback and had the No. 16 per game average–he was tied with Drew Brees at that point in the season. With a healthy Burrow, the Bengals averaged the second-most pass attempts per game, so this pass-friendly environment should continue in 2021, especially with first-round pick Ja’Marr Chase in town. Chase replaces A.J. Green, who was extremely inefficient in 2020. When Burrow targeted Green, he averaged a paltry 4.69 yards per attempt. He averaged 7.39 when targeting all other Cincinnati receivers. Chase, along with Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd, gives Burrow one of the best receiving corps in the league. Burrow can run too; he was on pace for 227 yards and 4.8 touchdowns on the ground. Given his competition at quarterback, Burrow’s ADP (No. 9 QB off the board) seems a little steep.
