Joe Burrow Confident He'll Stay Healthy

Friday, April 12, 11:12 PM

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (wrist) has been plagued by numerous injuries over the years. He suffered a season-ending knee injury as a rookie and was burdened by a calf strain early in the 2023-24 campaign. As a result, he struggled by throwing just two touchdowns in the first four games of the season. Unfortunately, despite turning things around, the signal-caller sustained a wrist injury in November and had another season end abruptly. But Burrow is adamant he's doing everything he can to stay on the field this season. "I'm confident I've put all the work in I need to make sure I'm healthy," said Burrow while speaking to Geoff Hobson of the team's official site. "I'm continuing year-to-year to better hone that and make that more efficient." The former LSU Tiger is anticipated to be cleared well before Week 1 but will continue to rehab in the immediate future. With that said, Burrow has the potential to be the top quarterback in the National Football League. Yet, his inability to stay healthy is something that will remain a significant concern for fantasy managers.

C.J. Stroud Struggles In Divisional Round Loss

Saturday, January 20, 11:43 PM

Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud struggled on the road in the team's 34-10 Divisional Round loss against the Baltimore Ravens. Stroud was not particularly efficient on Saturday, completing 19-of-33 passes for just 175 yards. The Ravens held the rookie in check, which resulted in him throwing zero touchdowns in a game for the fourth time this season. After a successful rookie campaign, Stroud's season will officially end. However, he has emerged as a top fantasy quarterback option and should be drafted pretty early in Superflex formats next season.
