 It's pretty remarkable what Burrow's been able to do as a rookie who had no preseason action. He's thrown for at least 300 yards in 5-of-7 games, with the two games he didn't coming against the Chargers and Ravens, two top-tier defenses. He's been a top-12 quarterback through seven weeks, and knowing that A.J. Green has started to come around, we may continue to see his performances get better, like last week when he racked up a career-high 406 yards against the Browns. The Titans are a team that should be a good matchup for Burrow considering where much of their production goes. Wide receivers have seen a 63.7 percent target share against the Titans, which ranks third-highest in the league, and it's where Burrow directs 66.6 percent of his targets. Not just that, but the Bengals pass 63.5 percent of the time (fifth-highest in NFL) while the Titans opponents have run 67.5 plays per game, so we should see 40-plus attempts in this game. It also helps to know that Burrow might have more time than normal, as the Titans haven't recorded more than two sacks in any game and have the third-lowest sack-rate (2.86 percent) in the NFL. The only quarterback who didn't finish with at least two passing touchdowns against them was Drew Lock back in Week 1. When you're getting 40-plus attempts, and some potential for rushing upside (has rushed for 121 yards and three touchdowns), you have what I'd consider a strong streamer.
