Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Burrow heard all of the criticism and skepticism that people put on him as he worked his way back from a gruesome injury and chose to shove it right back in people's faces to remind them why he was lauded as one of the greatest QB prospects to come out of college in recent history. Burrow is currently on pace now for 4,750 yards and 41 touchdowns to 19 interceptions and he seems like he's just getting warmed up too. The Bengals are not just pretenders in the AFC North and Burrow's a big reason why they're performing as well as they are right now. And with all that being said, they now get to take on the Jets defense that just gave up over 300 passing yards to Mac Jones and the Patriots. Burrow needs to be a locked-in start for your lineup this week if you've got him. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Jets are 7th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Burrow is the 6th ranked fantasy QB since Week 6 with 22.54 fantasy points per game. Burrow is a QB1 against a horrible Jets team.
