Fearless Forecast: 5070 PASS YDS, 40 PASS TD, 120 RUSH YDS, 2 RUSH TD, 13 INT
Projected Rank: 3
ANDY BEHREN: Joe Burrow has all of the tangibles and the intangibles that we want. And he could easily finish as the overall QB1 in fantasy. Let's start there. The guy led the NFL in completion percentage and yards per attempt last season.
He was also actually sacked more often than any quarterback in the NFL. But this year, the team has smartly upgraded its offensive line at multiple spots. They have really built a wall around Joe Burrow. That's going to be a good thing for Joe Mixon, for Burrow, for every element of this offense.
And oh, yeah, Joe Burrow has just about the best receiving tandem in the league at his disposal in Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins. It is a great situation. This is going to be a really fun offense. I'm going to forecast a huge year. Let's give him 5,070 passing yards, 40 passing touchdowns, 120 yards on the ground with another two scores.
