23-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
Cleveland Browns
2018 Fantasy Outlook
The first overall pick in the draft, Mayfield enters training camp as the backup to Tyrod Taylor. How long that remains the hierarchy is uncertain, despite coach Hue Jackson's proclaimed belief in Taylor. Perhaps Jackson is timid about another rookie starter after last year's debacle with DeShone Kizer, but Jackson has won a single game in two years, so if there's a coach in America who's apt to play the QB who gives him the best shot at winning, it's Jackson. Mayfield was highly accurate in college, has a strong arm and throws an excellent deep ball. At 6-1, 215, he doesn't have ideal height, but his batted-pass stats were excellent in college and, according to scouts, he processes information quickly and has the mobility to escape pressure. The Browns retooled their skill positions this offseason, adding Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway to a wideout group that hopes to finally have Josh Gordon for a full season. They also signed Carlos Hyde and drafted Nick Chubb to join Duke Johnson in the backfield. Better still, the offense now belongs to coordinator Todd Haley, who occupied the same role in Pittsburgh the last six years. Jackson will no longer call plays, and that will benefit whoever is under center. Read Past Outlooks

Excited to work with Kitchens
QBCleveland Browns
January 30, 2019
Mayfield is pleased with the Browns' decision to promote Freddie Kitchens to head coach, Pat McManamon of ESPN.com reports. "I kind of had that sense the whole time," Mayfield said Wednesday. "Seeing how [Kitchens] was, how he didn't change when he made the jump from running backs coach to offensive coordinator. Then just taking over and the difference that we had while he was calling plays."
ANALYSIS
Promising yet inconsistent during the first half of his rookie season, Mayfield completed 68.4 percent of his passes for 8.6 yards per attempt with 19 touchdowns in eight games after Kitchens replaced Todd Haley as the Browns' offensive coordinator. With Nick Chubb enjoying a similarly strong finish while running behind an impressive offensive line, the Browns can focus their offseason efforts on improving the defense and giving Mayfield more receiving weapons. The history of organizational dysfunction is still a concern, but few teams have a better situation in terms of the combination of talent, cap space and draft picks. While he'll likely be drafted as a low-end starter or high-end backup in most 2019 fantasy drafts, Mayfield could solidify a spot as a top-10 quarterback if the Browns make a significant investment in a wideout this offseason.
