10 QB sleepers to target for fantasy football 2021 Week 2

Joe Burrow vs. Chicago Bears

Last season, Cincinnati rookie quarterback Joe Burrow suffered a terrible injury, and many felt that he would take a few weeks this year to get back on his feet. Well, in Week 1 Burrow looked great, leading the Bengals past the Minnesota Vikings, and connecting with an old friend for a touchdown in the process.

During their time at LSU together, Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase led the Tigers to a national title, and they seem to be picking up right where they left off in 2021. Chase has the talent to be an amazing wide receiver in this league, and he already has the trust of BUrrow.

In fact, Cincinnati has a bunch of good wideouts in Chase, Tee Higgins, and Tyler Boyd. Sunday, they take on the Chicago Bears, whose defense looked suspect against the Los Angeles Rams in primetime, and could be just what Burrow and company need to move to 2-0 on the young season.

Mac Jones vs. New York Jets

The New York Jets could be in for big trouble this weekend, as they take on the New England Patriots and their rookie quarterback, Mac Jones. The problem the Jets will face is the fact that Bill Belichick devours rookie signal-callers, so their quarterback, Zach Wilson, definitely is not the play here.

Instead, it will be the Patriots quarterback, who looked outstanding in the team’s loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 1 and is only going to get better. He threw some throws that you only see out of elite veterans against Miami, and this Jets defense, he should have all day to throw.

Belichick is going to want to prove he has the better rookie quarterback, and you can expect Jones to step up to the challenge against Wilson. New England is not losing to the Jets on Sunday, and Mac Jones is going to be a big reason why this one could get ugly.
