Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is expected to start against the Rams on Monday Night Football despite being less than 100 percent, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.
Burrow strained his right calf on the second day of training camp and didn’t return from the injury until after the preseason. He has not played like himself thus far with 304 passing yards, two touchdowns and an interception and aggravated his injury late in the Week 2 loss to the Ravens. He was a limited participant in Friday’s and Saturday’s practices, the story said.
CIN QB Joe Burrow - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 4 at Tennessee Titans
Joe Burrow looked better, but his fantasy stats remained disappointing last Monday. He threw for a season-high 259 yards, but zero touchdowns and one interception. The calf is still an issue but it appears he will play through it. But this isn't the same Joe Burrow we are used to seeing.
The Titans are up next and have a below-average pass defense. Burrow faced Tennessee in 2022 and threw for 270 yards and a touchdown. The offensive weapons are still there for the Bengals so each week we could see improvement.
Start Burrow as a solid QB1 for Week 4. He is still better than most quarterbacks even if he isn't 100%. Each week, he has looked better and you have to stick with him if he is your starting quarterback.
