Fantasy Impact:

It's important to note that Burrow says his knee feels strong physically, and that he's more so having problems with the pass rush and bodies flying around his feet. This makes sense for a player coming off an ACL tear, and it's certainly worth monitoring. However, the NFL season is still a month away, so fantasy players are encouraged to not overreact. “Right now it’s just putting the mental and physical together, getting my feet back under me in the pocket with people around me,” Burrow said. “That’s the last step for me, get my pocket presence back and understand when I’m pressured and when I’m not. Just getting that whole feeling back that I’ve been really good at for a long time.”
