Big Ben let managers down in Week 6, although he'd been quite consistent before then. Excluding Week 6, Roethlisberger has posted scores of 22.06, 19.24, 19.18, and 21.36. Those are decent low-end QB1 numbers, although his lack of rushing ability holds him back from the upper tier of fantasy quarterbacks. He's a fine start in what should be a hotly contested game between two of the last undefeated teams.Burrow scored 24.54 points against the Browns back in Week 2. That's his best fantasy performance to date, however, and he has a median of just 17.52 points per game. That said, the Bengals are attempting a ton of passes, and A.J. Green is righting the ship, so I'm expecting some regression here soon. Burrow is a higher-end QB2 this week.
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Playing some of the most efficient football of his career, Big Ben is a weekly QB1 for fantasy. This week, he gets a Titans defense that's struggled to get it done against opposing aerial attacks.It's been a rough couple of weeks for Burrow, as the rook hasn't tossed a TD over his last two games. Still, he buoyed his production with some big air yards and a rushing score, and Burrow has thrown for at least 300 yards in four of his last five games. This week, he'll face a Browns defense that has allowed the fourth-most passing yards (289) this season, vaulting Burrow into top-10 territory for Week 7.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Here are his fantasy finishes through the first five games of the season: 9, 17, 14, 10, and 23. It's the same old Roethlisberger that we've come to love as a streamer, though he hasn't had one of those blow-up type games just yet. Will it come in Week 7? The Titans opponents have averaged 1.60 fantasy points per offensive play, which ranks as the third-highest number in the league, behind only the Falcons and Packers, so they're certainly a matchup to target in fantasy. The Titans have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks, while allowing 0.55 fantasy points per actual pass attempt (no rushing), which also ranks as the seventh-highest mark. It helps that their opponents have averaged a stable 66.2 plays per game, which has led to quarterbacks averaging 37.6 pass attempts per game. With the efficiency and potency of the Titans offense, it's unlikely we see a Browns-like situation last week where the Steelers are able to simply sit on the ball and have Roethlisberger throw just 22 pass attempts. The Titans have now allowed at least 251 yards and two touchdowns to each of the last four quarterbacks they've played, and Roethlisberger should have a fully-healthy receiver corps for this game. He should be considered a solid, high-floor, low-end QB1.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.

Ben wasn't needed much last week in a blowout, but this game promises to be a bit closer of a matchup. With the weapons that Ben has at his disposal, Ben can always be viewed as a low-end QB1. However, in a matchup against a defense that is having a tough time slowing down opposing QBs and opposing WRs, Ben should be viewed as a solid mid-range QB1.Burrow hasn't put up insane numbers over the past couple of weeks, but he's had a couple of tough matchups back-to-back. Burrow's simply throwing the ball too much though to not be considered for fantasy football on a weekly basis. He can be viewed as a high-end QB2 in this matchup against the Browns.
