Who is Joe Burrow

Joe Burrow's senior season contains some of the greatest college stats of any college quarterback of all time such as his passer rating of 202 and especially his 94.9 (99th percentile) College QBR. He was invited to the combine where there was concern not for his below average 4.82 40-time or his 6’4” height, but his 9” (5th percentile) hand size. Fortunately, the Bengals were able to recognize how little that mattered and selected him with the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Joe Burrow was named the starting quarterback his rookie year and broke a record for most completions by a rookie quarterback (37) in his second career start. He also became the first rookie to throw for 300 yards or more for three straight games and would go on to complete more passes than any other rookie in NFL history in their first eight games. Unfortunately, a brutal knee injury would end his rookie season early.

Burrow was able to complete his rehab in time to start the 2021 season. He valiantly outperformed his ADP of QB15 and finished with the fantasy ranking of QB8. In Week 16, he threw for 525 yards against the Baltimore Ravens; the fourth most passing yards in a game, and the most ever by a Bengals quarterback. He finished the 2021 regular season No. 1 in Yards Per Attempt, No. 1 in Clean Pocket Completion Percentage, and top ten in Deep Ball Completion Percentage. Cincinnati would win the AFC North division, and Burrow would lead the Bengals to their first Super Bowl appearance since 1988. His memorable playoff performances endeared him to fans all over, and he was given the nickname Joey Brrrr. Not only for his optimal wardrobe, but for his ability to remain calm and make explosive plays in pressure filled situations. Burrow stands to be a top 10 quarterback in the league for a long time, but it is imperative that the team protect their quarterback, and it shouldn’t be hard to find additional funds since they still have Burrow signed to his rookie contract.
