2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Say what you will about his on and off the field antics, but Baker Mayfield was a heck of a productive football player. Bucking the analytics, Cleveland made Mayfield the 1st overall pick in the 2018 draft, but if it's up to them, he won't see the field this season. Mayfield brings a fire and brimstone approach to the game, lifting the players around him. Should he get the chance to become the starter, he's definitely worth a look. His accuracy and playmaking ability in and out of the pocket would give him tremendous upside. He'll have a talented and experienced core of receivers (hopefully!) to throw to, and could be another "lightning in a bottle" addition to fantasy squads at some point this season. We've seen a string of rookie quarterbacks flash the past several years, and Mayfield has what it takes to be another one. I do believe Cleveland that they will wait as long as possible to showcase Mayfield, but when given the chance should garner roster consideration, even if it comes later in the year.

Injury Browns make it official: Mayfield to start Week 4
Tyrod Taylor in concussion protocol
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 24, 12:45 pm

Cleveland Browns
Coach Hue Jackson named his No. 1 overall pick the starting quarterback on Monday, replacing Tyrod Taylor, who was knocked out Thursday night's 21-17 victory over the Jets with a concussion. Baker Mayfield will make his first NFL start Sunday in Oakland, against the Derek Carr-led Raiders, becoming the 30th quarterback to start a game for the Browns since 1999. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

FFToday's Take: Mayfield under center has a better shot to invoke some life into the Browns offense including Jarvis Landry and tight end David Njoku. Mayfield is a worthy QB streamer this week against the Raiders defense that just gave up 3 touchdowns to Ryan Tannehill.


Baker Mayfield to start vs. Lions
Rookie gets nod in final preseason game while starters sit
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 28, 8:10 am

Cleveland Browns
Baker Mayfield will start vs. the Lions on Thursday. Coach Hue Jackson said he'll rest his starters in the preseason finale Thursday to get them to the Steelers game Sept. 9 healthy, and that Mayfield could possibly play a half. "I am not playing the starters in this game,'' he said. "You guys have been looking for that. They will not play. Specific guys will play and play quite a bit, and then we will let some other guys finish the game." (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

FFToday's Take: Tyrod Taylor is still the unquestioned starter. Some are questioning the decision to play Mayfield with an untrusted unit around him, which could translate to more punishment and possible injury. Dynasty owners can get a look at Mayfield but it's always a risk to play a #1 pick in a meaningless game. These are, after all, the Browns.


Browns confirm Tyrod Taylor as starter
Cleveland going with veteran QB, Mayfield is backup
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Jul 31, 9:48 am

Cleveland Browns
Steve Doerschuk on Twitter: "If Jackson has said it once he's said it 50 times. Today: 'Do you want me to say it again. Tyrod is our starting quarterback.'" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Well, I guess this means that Baker Mayfield has some work to do to see the field his rookie season. Tyrod Taylor could provide surprising numbers if he holds onto the starting job and gets the most out of a talented corps of receivers. He has an outside shot at being a Top 20 fantasy QB but has plenty of baggage and a reputation for underachieving.
