Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (knee) was a favorite to finish last season as the league’s Rookie of the Year. However, after he took a huge hit during a Week 7 encounter against the Cleveland Browns, resulting in a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee, Justin Herbert surpassed him to claim the award. Now, with the former LSU Tiger seemingly healthy, he is expected to benefit from an enhanced offensive line and the addition of former collegiate teammate Ja’Marr Chase. Burrow has high expectations moving ahead and was recently dubbed “baby Aaron” by Mike Daniels, a former Packer who spent six seasons playing alongside Aaron Rodgers. While managers should be rightfully apprehensive about selecting Burrow as their primary signal-caller based on the horrific injury, the upside is there for those looking to hold off on selecting a quarterback until the later rounds of upcoming fantasy drafts.
