Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
The Cincinnati Bengals certainly made it a priority to ease Burrow back into action - as evidenced by only 27 pass attempts even as the game when into overtime - and it worked. Burrow looked sharp, he was decisive, and he was able to take some contact and get right back up. Moving forward, we should feel very confident with Burrow from a fantasy perspective as we progress deeper into the NFL season. Burrow and the Bengals get to take on the Bears this next week, who just let Matthew Stafford throw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns on them. While we shouldn't expect that same level of output for Burrow in this one, he's still a fine start in Superflex formats and can be viewed as a mid-range QB2. Until we see the pass attempts jump up to 40+ - like they were before his injury last year - we can't move him into the top-12. 
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
In his first game back from a major knee injury, Burrow acquitted himself nicely in an overtime win over the Vikings. Now let's see what he can do in a more favorable matchup against one of the worst CB groups in the league. Burrow was efficient against a Minnesota defense that's mostly whole again after a barrage of 2020 injuries, completing 21 of 27 passes for 261 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions. The young quarterback took five sacks and some additional hits, but he survived. Now he gets to face the Bears, who Matt Stafford fricasseed on Monday night, averaging 12.4 yards per pass attempt. The tasty matchup puts Burrow just outside QB1 range at QB13. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bears looked very shaky at the LA Rams, but the Rams figure to have one of the better offenses in the NFL. Burrow is more of a QB2 on the road against a tough Bears D this week.
