And while it remains to be seen if Joe Burrow can break the Bengals’ playoff curse, fantasy football analyst Andy Behrens asks another question: Will Burrow be a draft-worthy quarterback for fantasy footballers in 2020?

Andy says that while it is extremely rare for rookie quarterbacks to make a big fantasy impact (Kyler Murray did do it last year), Burrow is actually heading into a solid situation that could buoy his fantasy value. He’ll have A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, John Ross, and Joe Mixon at his disposal — one of the better offensive weapons cache in the league.

Not to be forgotten, 2019 first-round pick Jonah Williams will be healthy this season, further helping Burrow in his rookie year.
