Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
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
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
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.It appears that Wentz has found a new way to score fantasy points on a consistent basis. Over his last five games, he's rushed for at least 37 yards in three of them while scoring a rushing touchdown in four of them. Because of that, he's now scored at least 17.4 fantasy points in each of his last four games. It's a bit concerning that he's still yet to throw for more than 270 yards in a game this year, but we'll take fantasy points where we can get them. It is worth noting that the Giants have allowed a league-low 3.7 fantasy points on the ground to quarterbacks this year. They have allowed a 70.8 percent completion-rate this year, which ranks as the fourth-highest mark in football, which obviously bodes well for Wentz considering his lackluster 58.7 percent completion-rate this year. The Giants have had a better pass rush than most expected, as they're near the middle of the league in all pressure-related stats, including their 6.88 percent sack-rate. They've faced just 33.7 pass attempts per game, as the lack of strength on offense has not pressured teams into throwing the ball a whole lot. Because of that, we've seen limited fantasy output, as just one quarterback (Ben Roethlisberger) has finished as a top-15 option against them. In fact, since that Week 1 game against the Steelers, the Giants secondary has allowed just six passing touchdowns over five games. Knowing Wentz will be without Miles Sanders, Zach Ertz, and Dallas Goedert, it's tough to say he's a strong streaming option. Consider him just a mid-to-low-end QB2.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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.Wentz has looked terrible through the first portion of the season, but he continues to be effective for fantasy. Even though Wentz was able to put up great numbers through garbage time production, you should never want to rely on that when considering a streaming QB. This is a fine matchup for Wentz, but he's a mid-range QB2 at best.
