Cincinnati Bengals DFS Spin
Joe Burrow completed 26-of-37 passes for 249 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals' 31-20, Week 8 win over the Titans, adding three rushes for nine yards. The Bengals pulled off the home upset despite Burrow providing his fewest yards in a month, and third fewest of his excellent 2020. Burrow Houdini'd his way out of more than one sack behind an offensive line that was missing four starters, and all five of its Week 1 starters. Burrow was lucky to escape without a turnover, having a bad interception called back by defensive pass interference. Burrow has now provided multiple scores in back-to-back starts after going three games without multiple TDs. Efficient on extreme volume and offering an increasing amount of big-play ability, Burrow could still retake the lead in the OROY race by the time it is all said and done. Headed into the Bengals' bye week, Burrow is on pace for a rookie record 4,544 yards passing.

Pittsburgh also activated OL Jerald Hawkins, RB Jaylen Samuels and LB Vince Williams from the COVID list.
