Joe Burrow 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

The Bengals missed Burrow when he went down against Washington. His replacements, Ryan Finley and Brandon Allen, didn’t get the job done, winning just two of the final six games of the season. Only twice did a Bengals quarterback throw for over 200 yards after Burrow went down.

He was 2020’s No. 1 overall pick for a reason. He can sling it and showed lots of poise and leadership behind a poor offensive line. He also had to lead a team that worked around many injuries all year long.

Burrow had 1.5 passes that were interceptable per game last season but averaged 331.1 yards per game in the air, which was second-best in the league. Cincy’s defense gave Burrow and the offense no choice but to air it out in the second half. The one thing he lacked last season was his long-ball completion percentage. He only completed 20 percent of such attempts on the year, which could be improved this year.

The Bengals added wide receiver and former LSU teammate Ja’Marr Chase in the 2021 NFL Draft. If you go back and watch tape of Burrow and Chase during their 2020 Championship run, you’ll see plenty of long completions and connections between the two. Adding Chase should help Burrow’s deep-ball completion percentage. He’ll also have an improved offensive line and other targets in Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins.

Joe Burrow 2021 Fantasy Football Draft Value (PPR)

There’s nothing better than grabbing a quarterback late in a draft when you know his team is going to lose. The Bengals aren’t going to be over .500 this year, but it will not necessarily be Burrow’s fault. Instead, it’ll be on the defense, and Burrow will have to continue to sling it game after game in the fourth quarter. That adds plenty of value to any quarterback in a PPR league, as he’ll complete more passes and gain more yards along with some potential late-game touchdowns.
