Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Burrow didn't have a great statistical outing last week against the Raiders, but he wasn't needed all that much in a game where the Bengals were able to rely on their run game so heavily. Burrow completed 20 of 29 passes for only 148 yards and one touchdown, which left fantasy managers disappointed. However, these game scripts are going to play out from time to time and it's simply a part of playing fantasy football. That needs to be wiped from our minds though as we look ahead to Week 12 and the matchup against the Steelers defense that just gave up 41 points and 382 passing yards to Justin Herbert on Sunday night. This game should be closer than what the Bengals encountered last week against Las Vegas and the Steelers run defense should keep Mixon in check enough to force Burrow to air it out more. Burrow needs to be back in your starting lineup this week as a low-end QB1 with upside. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Burrow has only 18 fantasy points in his last two starts, making it hard to trust him as more than a QB2 at home against a Steelers D that he had only 19 fantasy points against in Week 3 when he was playing better football.
