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

Weapons aplenty in 2019
QBCleveland Browns
March 12, 2019
Mayfield will have a new No. 1 receiver in 2019 after the Browns traded for Odell Beckham on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
The only thing better than winning the Antonio Brown trade sweepstakes might be getting OBJ into the mix, and the Browns didn't have to give up any key offensive players to do so. Mayfield is already coming off a nice rookie season that saw him throw for 3,725 yards and 27 touchdowns while starting 14 games. He will have a multitude of weapons heading into the new season, including wide receivers Beckham and Jarvis Landry, tight end David Njoku and running backs Nick Chubb, Duke Johnson and the newly acquired Kareem Hunt (suspension). It's a potent group that Cleveland fans may not have been able to envision just a couple of seasons ago.

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."
