Baker Mayfield
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

Records second multi-touchdown game of career

October 21, 2018
Mayfield completed 23-of-34 attempts for 215 passing yards and two touchdowns, adding 43 rushing yards on four carries during Sunday's 26-23 overtime loss to the Buccaneers.
ANALYSIS
The No. 1 overall pick threw for his most efficient completion rate of any of his four starts Sunday (67.7 percent) despite being under constant duress by the Bucs front seven (he's now been sacked five times in three different games). Despite a second-consecutive loss, Mayfield continues to show poise in high-pressure situations, as he led the offense into the end zone late in the fourth quarter after being set up by a 32-yard punt return by Jabrill Peppers with under three minutes to go in regulation. Mayfield's upcoming slate of opponents has vested fantasy GMs salivating, as the Browns will take on bottom 10 pass defenses over the next three weeks in Pittsburgh, Kansas City and Atlanta.
