Joe Burrow Expected To Be Top Rookie QB

Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback Joe Burrow, the No. 1 overall pick of the draft, is projected to be the most productive rookie signal-caller in 2020, per NFL Network's Cynthia Frelund. Cincy's shaky offensive line could pose problems for Burrow in his first year. The good news is that Burrow threw 17 touchdowns and only one interception while completing 66.4 percent of his passes at 11.4 yards per attempt under pressure in 2019, per Pro Football Focus. Andy Dalton had an 82.3 passer rating when he wasn't under pressure last year, the lowest mark in the NFL among qualified passers. Burrow threw 16 TDs on tight-window throws last year at LSU, with a 47.6 completion percentage at 8.8 yards per attempt. Expect the Bengals to use a lot of play-action passes in Burrow's rookie season after the Heisman Trophy winner had a 150.3 passer rating off play-action last year and a 74.1 completion percentage. He's expected to start right away for the Bengals, which makes him the obvious choice for most productive rookie QB this year. Burrow will have plenty of aerial weapons to choose from, making him a low-end QB2 in two-quarterback redraft leagues. He should be the first pick in dynasty/keeper formats.

Joe Burrow "As Advertised" During Virtual Meetings

Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback Joe Burrow has been "as advertised" during virtual sessions this offseason, according to head coach Zac Taylor. The Bengals made Burrow the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 draft and are pinning the future of the franchise on the prolific LSU passer. Taylor also recently told SI.com's Albert Breer that Burrow's preparation and "mental acumen" have both been excellent during this strange offseason. While fantasy expectations for Burrow need to be kept in check for his rookie season, he remains a high-upside target in dynasty leagues, especially in two-QB formats.

Joe Burrow Hoping To Achieve Rare Feat

The Cincinnati Bengals are hoping they selected a franchise building block when they used the No. 1 overall pick on LSU quarterback Joe Burrow in the NFL draft last month. While Burrow has plenty of potential and is likely to start the majority of the team's 16 games in 2020, instant success may be hard to come by. Of the 50 rookie quarterbacks to have made at least eight starts since 2000, only 13 have finished with a winning record as a starter. Burrow has plenty of upside but he might not turn into a viable fantasy option until the 2021 season, at the earliest.
