Joe Burrow Ready To Put Injury Past Behind Him

Wednesday, July 10, 6:34 PM

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (wrist) expressed that he is "going to give people something to talk about" after having an injury-plagued 2023 season, according to Nick Shook of NFL.com. Burrow left the Week 11 game early last season due to a torn ligament in his wrist. This injury caused him to miss the remainder of the season. This was the second time where Burrow's season ended with him on Injured Reserve. The former national champion further expressed, "That's what happens when you get hurt, though. You don't play football. People forget about you." Whenever he has been on the field, the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft has performed at an elite level, but injuries have followed him throughout his career. The 27-year-old could be a steal at his current ADP of 62.4 if he can stay healthy due to his elite pass-catchers in Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins.

Kenny Pickett Embracing Change Of Scenery

Thursday, July 11, 4:03 PM

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Kenny Pickett joined the organization after spending just two seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The University of Pittsburgh product posted 4,474 passing yards, 13 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions in 25 games for the Steelers after being selected in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Needless to say, the Steelers gave up on him quickly and dealt him for mid-round pick swaps. Now in Philadelphia, the 26-year-old is embracing the change of scenery. "Change is a great thing," Pickett said. "I'm going through it right now. I was in Pittsburgh for seven years, and now I'm over in Philadelphia. I think a lot of people probably have some negative views on change, but that's really just your outlook on it. I think if you keep a positive mindset, it'll all work out for the better." While taking a step back could be a good thing for Pickett's career, he's unlikely to see any playing time anytime soon barring an injury to Jalen Hurts. That said, he could be an intriguing bench stash in two-QB and superflex leagues due to the offensive weaponry and offensive line the Eagles possess.
