The Cincinnati Bengals certainly made it a priority to ease Burrow back into action - as evidenced by only 27 pass attempts even as the game when into overtime - and it worked. Burrow looked sharp, he was decisive, and he was able to take some contact and get right back up. Moving forward, we should feel very confident with Burrow from a fantasy perspective as we progress deeper into the NFL season. Burrow and the Bengals get to take on the Bears this next week, who just let Matthew Stafford throw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns on them. While we shouldn't expect that same level of output for Burrow in this one, he's still a fine start in Superflex formats and can be viewed as a mid-range QB2. Until we see the pass attempts jump up to 40+ - like they were before his injury last year - we can't move him into the top-12.
