Burrow continues to play well for "real life" purposes, but he simply needs more passing volume to be a difference-maker in fantasy football. In Week 4 against the Jaguars, Burrow was particularly sharp when playing in the empty formation (with the Bengals trailing for most of the contest). In fact, he was 14-of-16 for 153 yards and a touchdown in the empty formation. The team leaned on Joe Mixon through the first three weeks of the season as Burrow (knee) was eased back in. If Mixon (ankle) misses Week 5 against the Packers, then perhaps the Bengals will lean more pass-heavy once again.
