Joe Burrow Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Bengals HC Zac Taylor said Friday that QB Joe Burrow will be sidelined for "several weeks." Burrow's calf injury isn't likely to cost him regular season games, but we'll pass along updates as they become available.

SI's Albert Breer reports that Bengals QB Joe Burrow suffered a right calf strain. "Early signs are good it's not worse than that," he adds. That's obviously good news vs. what could have been wrong with Burrow's leg. We'll see about his expected return timeline.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow was carted off the practice field on Thursday. He went down as he escaped the pocket and grabbed at his right calf, which already had a sleeve on it. Here's video of the play. We'll update Burrow's status as soon as we know more.

Update: Burrow's injury is to his calf, HC Zac Taylor said.

The Bengals added WR Charlie Jones in the 4th round of the 2023 NFL Draft. Jones is coming off a huge 2023 season for Purdue: 110 catches, 1,361 yards, and 12 TDs. So why did he last until Round 4? Because 2023 was Jones' sixth year in college. He did nothing across 2 seasons at Buffalo and then 3 at Iowa. He's already 24 years old and is just 175 pounds. It's a shaky prospect profile. This is a sneaky strong long-term landing spot, though. Jones is tied to QB Joe Burrow. And WRs Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd are set to hit free agency next offseason. It makes Jones worth stashing in deeper dynasty leagues.

Bengals LT Jonah Williams dislocated his left kneecap in Sunday night's win over the Ravens, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. HC Zac Taylor called Williams' status "week to week" on Monday. That suggests the LT will have trouble getting back in time for Sunday's game at Buffalo -- but that he has a chance to return if Cincinnati continues to advance. Reserve G Jackson Carman filled in against Baltimore after Williams went down. QB Joe Burrow still drew pressure on just 28.2% of his dropbacks for the game, according to Pro Football Focus, the 4th lowest rate among the 10 starting QBs so far in these playoffs.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow completed 23 of 32 passes for 209 yards and 1 TD in Sunday’s win over Baltimore. He leaned heavily on Ja’Marr Chase, who finished with 9-84-1 on a 37.5% target share. Burrow added a 1-yard TD on a sneak. Next up is a must-see matchup at Buffalo (Sunday, 3PM ET). The Bills exited the regular season sitting 2nd toughest vs. enemy QBs.

The NFL announced that the Bills-Bengals game will not be rescheduled. It's officially a no-contest and players do not receive any stats for the game. Commissioner Roger Goodell is also recommending that the AFC Championship Game be played at a neutral site if the Bills or Bengals make it there as the road team. All 32 teams will vote on that proposal on Friday.

Update: The NFL owners have approved these changes to the playoff setup.

The NFL announced Tuesday that it won't resume the Bills-Bengals game -- halted by S Damar Hamlin's collapse -- this week. The league added that it will keep the Week 18 schedule intact and that no decision has yet been made on how to treat Monday night's game going forward. That means fantasy football leagues and contest providers will either have to wait for further word on the resumption of that contest or figure out alternate solutions. We'll certainly be watching for updates on that front -- as well as, of course, any updates on Hamlin's condition.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow went 40-of-52 passing for 375 yards and 3 TDs (plus 2 INTs) in Saturday's win over the Patriots. Cincinnati dropped back on 65.5% of offensive plays despite jumping to a big early lead, facing a defense that has played the run tough. Burrow's scores went to WR Trenton Irwin (2) and WR Tee Higgins, who led the team with 128 yards on 8 catches. WR Ja'Marr Chase matched Higgins forr the reception lead, going for 79 yards. Cincinnati hosts the Bills in Week 17.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow tallied 200 passing yards, 4 TDs, and 1 INT in Sunday's win. While the yardage total isn't eye-popping, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers fell into the Christmas spirit early, gifting Burrow and company good field position as a result of multiple turnovers in the second half. Burrow and the Bengals are set to face off against the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills in Week 16 and Week 17 respectively. Though both franchises rank in the bottom 10 of average fantasy points allowed to QBs in 2022, managers should trust Burrow with the confidence they have all season as a top-12 option.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow threw for 286 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. He found Tee Higgins and RB Chris Evans for scores, adding a rushing TD from 4 yards out to kick off the scoring. Burrow took 11 rushing attempts for 46 yards, his largest total since Week 1. Now comes a Week 14 rematch with a Cleveland team that embarrassed the Bengals in a 32-13 Week 8 win.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is not expected to play vs. the Titans today. He's seemingly making good progress with his rehab and should tentatively be expected back for Week 13. His absence today boosts the target projections for WRs Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow finished Sunday as the #2 fantasy QB for the week, trailing only Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes. Burrow racked up 355 yards and 4 TDs in the win over the Steelers. It's his 1st 4-TD game of the season but 3rd game with 3+ among his past 5 outings. Burrow also threw 2 INTs, meaning 6 of his 8 INTs for the season have come against Pittsburgh. WR Tee Higgins dominated the market shares for targets, catches and yards, but RB Samaje Perine claimed 3 of the 4 receiving TDs. The other went to WR Trenton Irwin. Burrow gets a pass-funnel matchup at Tennessee in Week 12.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow uncorked 42 passes for 481 yards and 3 scores in a Week 7 win over Atlanta. He added a 1-yard rushing score. Cincy led by double-digits for most of this game, but HC Zac Taylor kept the petal down, and Burrow delivered. His scores went to Tyler Boyd (60 yards) and Ja’Marr Chase (32 and 41 yards). Atlanta lost top CB A.J. Terrell early in this one, but Burrow simply wasn’t going to be stopped. He’s now hit 275+ yards and 2+ scores in 4 of his past 5 matchups. Next week, he gets a Browns pass D that might remain without CB Denzel Ward (concussion).

Bengals QB Joe Burrow managed just 217 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT in Sunday night's meeting with a Ravens defense he slaughtered last year. Granted, this Baltimore D is healthier and Tee Higgins left early after aggravating his sprained ankle. But Burrow can't blame the protection this time. According to Pro Football Focus, no QB faced a lower rate of pressure in Week 5. Burrow took only 2 sacks among 38 dropbacks. He targeted WR Ja'Marr Chase a team-high 12 times but connected on just 7 for 50 yards. TE Hayden Hurst ranked 2nd in targets (7) and receptions (6), led the team with 53 receiving yards and caught Cincinnati's only TD pass. Burrow added a 1-yard TD on the ground. Week 6 brings a decent matchup with New Orleans, and Burrow sits a nice 7th among QBs in fantasy points per game for the year so far.
