Cincinnati @ Cleveland
Team Totals: Browns 25, Bengals 19

Joe Burrow’s box score didn’t fully reflect the promise he flashed in his NFL debut; the Chargers’ stacked defense and Joey Bosa in particular kept him under heavy duress. Across all Week 1 games, only three offensive lines yielded more pressure than Cincinnati’s (33.3%). Yet Burrow stayed unflinching in the pocket, showed his athleticism with 8/46/1 rushing – keyed by a 23-yard TD on a QB draw – and marched his team nearly 80 yards on Cincy’s final drive, only for K Randy Bullock to shank the game-tying kick. The Bengals’ protection woes remain likely to be exposed by Myles Garrett & Co. on Thursday night, and Burrow is a two-quarterback-league play only. But for one-game DFS purposes, I like Burrow’s chances of outscoring struggling Baker Mayfield straight up.
