Here are some other options to consider for Thursday night’s game between the Bengals and the Browns.



Burrow is someone I’d steer clear of unless you’re in a deep league or maybe a league with 2 starting quarterbacks. While Burrow’s passing numbers weren’t the most impressive, he was second in rushing for the Bengals and that’s where he scored his first NFL touchdown.

Beckham might not be as good as he was during his days with the Giants, but he led the Browns in targets. He’s the one the offense consistently looks to get the ball to whether it’s their best play or not, so he’s going to get his. The reason for Landry being listed with the sits is because of the Browns forcing the ball to Beckham more, even if it’s not in their best interest.

Hooper is someone owners should look to start as David Njoku is injured, which will give Hooper more opportunities to make an impact for the Browns offense.

Boyd is simply listed as a sit because you never know what you’re going to get from him. He was third in receiving yards for the Bengals last week and it’s possible he has a better game this week, but it’s risky. Only start him if you don’t have better options.

Hopefully this advice serves you all well. Good luck in week 2, my friends!
