Joe Burrow 'probably' won't play in the Preseason

Bengals president Mike Brown said they "probably" won't play Joe Burrow until the start of the regular season to limit risk.

Fantasy Impact

Burrow is still recovering from his knee injury he suffered last season. This move makes sense to keep Burrow out of harm's way in the preseason to ensure his health to start week one. Burrow has a fantastic array of weapons at his disposal, and he could grow into fantasy stardom this season.

Joe Burrow (knee) will not be placed on PUP list

Bengals QB Joe Burrow will be on the field, healthy, when training camp begins. The team announced there are no plans for Burrow to be added to the PUP list after an ACL tear in 2020.

Fantasy Impact

Prior to the knee injury, Joe Burrow was completing over 65 percent of his passes, while on pace to go over 4,300 passing yards. The downfall was he was sacked regularly, averaging 3.2 sacks per game. The Bengals have added pieces on the offensive line to protect him along with reuniting him with Ja'Marr Chase, his favorite target at LSU. If he returns to form, Burrow could be in for a big year.

Joe Burrow (knee) ‘all systems go’ for Week 1

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that Bengals QB Joe Burrow (knee) is “all systems go” for Week 1 against the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

According to Dr. Neal ElAttrache (who operated on Burrow in December) of Kerlan-Jobe in Los Angeles, Bengals QB Joe Burrow is “all systems go” for Week 1 against the Vikings. “He's on track for full go for the start of the season," said ElAttrache. "He's doing all the work. He's worked his tail off and been an amazingly mature participant in his recovery. He's focused and great to work with." This is excellent news for Burrow and the Bengals' offense. The No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft is progressing well in his recovery from knee surgery and is expected to return in Week 1. Burrow completed 264 passes for 2,688 yards and a 13:5 TD: INT ratio across 10 games in 2020. The 24-year-old is currently 11th among all quarterbacks in the latest expert consensus rankings.

Joe Burrow targeting Week 1 return, feeling 'optimistic' as rehab continues

Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, who suffered a torn ACL and MCL in Week 11 of his rookie season, is targeting a Week 1 return in 2021. “I’m very optimistic about where I’m at and also where the team’s at," said last year's No. 1 pick. "Rehab is going very, very well. Lifting is going very, very well. I’m in great shape. Legs feel good. Knee feels good. ... The way I’m feeling right now, I’m very optimistic that I’ll be ready Game 1.”

Fantasy Impact

This is a very promising update from Burrow himself. While Week 1 always seemed like a reasonable goal, it's good to receive confirmation that the Bengals' signal-caller is progressing well through rehab. Over 10 starts prior to injury, he completed 264 passes for 2,688 yards, 13 touchdowns, and five interceptions. If Burrow happens to hit a setback and isn't ready to go for the team's season opener, Brandon Allen would be in line to start at quarterback.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow (ACL) will resume running next week.

Fantasy Impact

10 weeks removed from his ACL surgery, Burrow has been cleared for light running as he enters the next phase of his rehab. The No. 1 overall pick from last year's draft remains on pace for Week 1 if he can avoid setbacks throughout the offseason.
