He's now gone two weeks without throwing a single touchdown, which is not something you want to see with streamers. It wasn't all bad, though, as he hit the 300-yard mark for the fourth time in the last five games, and he also rushed for a touchdown. On the season, he's now thrown for 1,617 yards but with six touchdowns. That amounts to 269.5 yards per touchdown. How improbable is it that he continues that pace? Well, there was no quarterback in the NFL last year who averaged more than 218.4 yards per touchdown. Oddly enough, the quarterback who averaged 218.4 yards per touchdown last year was Andy Dalton, while playing for Zac Taylor. Maybe his playbook can use some work in the red zone. The Browns are not a team who's done well slowing down opposing quarterbacks, as they've allowed a passing touchdown every 133.1 passing yards, including a career-high three touchdowns to Burrow in Week 2. Now, to be fair, Burrow did throw the ball a ridiculous 61 times in that game, something we can't expect again. Don't look now but Burrow has thrown the ball just 66 times over the last two weeks combined. The Browns pass rush has been somewhat mediocre through six games, generating a 5.29 percent sack-rate, which ranks 20th in the NFL and helps Burrow, who's seemingly always under pressure. There are some inconsistencies with both of these teams, which leads to a high-variance streamer. I wouldn't be shocked to see him finish as a high-end QB2 or high-end QB3, so we have to go somewhere in between. He's got a higher ceiling than most in the middling QB2 range but he also has a lower floor. He's got a higher ceiling than most in the middling QB2 range, but he also has a lower floor.

Fantasy Impact

Burrow did add a rushing touchdown in the loss. The rookie has passed for at least 300 yards in four of his six career starts. He will be a solid QB2 in Week 7 against the Browns.
