Joe Burrow Won't Say Where He's At Health-Wise

Wednesday, June 12, 10:31 PM

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (wrist) said it is "tough to say" what percentage health-wise he is at right now but reiterated "I'll be ready to go by the season." Burrow didn't look right early on in 2023 after injuring his calf during training camp last summer, and then he suffered a season-ending right-wrist injury in Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens. The former first overall pick in 2020 out of LSU has bookended his four seasons in the NFL so far with serious injuries, but he's been a solid QB1 option for fantasy managers otherwise. The 27-year-old should be full-go for training camp next month and should be ready for the Week 1 season opener this fall, barring any setbacks with his wrist in training camp and the preseason. With one of the better one-two punches at wideout in the league, Burrow should be a fine midrange QB1 target in fantasy drafts after the big names at the position come off the board.

Tua Tagovailoa News

Tua Tagovailoa Present For Mandatory Minicamp

Tuesday, June 4, 2:07 PM

Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel told reporters on Tuesday that quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is present for mandatory minicamp. "In the flesh," McDaniel said. Tagovailoa is present this week, but he may not do much on the field as he seeks a contract extension that the two sides have been discussing for some time. The 26-year-old former first-rounder wasn't involved as much in voluntary organized team activities this offseason as he has been in years past, but that's also likely related to his contract demands, and it shouldn't be taken in a negative light concerning his 2024 fantasy value. A lighter Tagovailoa should be able to work something out with Miami before the start of the regular season. He had a career year in 2023 and should once again lead a high-scoring Dolphins offense with one of the best one-two punches at wideout in the lead. However, Tagovailoa lacks high-end QB1 upside because of his lack of rushing production.
