Browns | Baker Mayfield excels in debut

Thu, 09 Aug 2018 23:48:18 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 11 of his 20 passing attempts for 212 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Giants on Thursday, Aug. 9. He added 13 yards on three carries.

Fantasy Tip: Mayfield looked like a player in his NFL debut. Even taking into account he was going against backups, the No. 1 overall pick made plays in and out of the pocket. We all know the "plan" is to let Tyrod Taylor run the show in 2018 and then turn to Mayfield next year, but if Mayfield proves he's ready it could be tough to hold him back. This is a situation worth watching with Mayfield a potentially interesting late-round flier in single-year leagues.

Browns | Cleveland open to extending Tyrod Taylor's deal

Sat, 04 Aug 2018 07:38:56 -0700

The Cleveland Browns are open to giving a contract extension to QB Tyrod Taylor, who is in the first season of a two-year, $30.5 million deal with the club. "There may come a point where I call his representatives in October and say, 'Let's strike something up,'" general manager John Dorsey said to Kevin Clark of The Ringer. Dorsey went on to say that possible interest in keeping Taylor beyond the 2019 season would not necessarily mean QB Baker Mayfield wasn't pushing him for the starting job. "Nah, let's deal with it when it happens," Dorsey said.

Fantasy Tip: The 30-year-old Taylor will enter the 2018 season as the Browns' starter and has looked impressive in training camp. He will have more receiving weapons to work with in Cleveland than he had in Buffalo and should be viewed as a solid QB2 in most fantasy formats.

Browns | Baker Mayfield playing faster

Thu, 26 Jul 2018 19:00:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield appears to have a better grasp of the playbook and is "playing faster than in minicamp," according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Fantasy Tip: Mayfield still isn't expected to open the season as the starter, but he could end up under center sooner rather than later if the Browns struggle early in the year. Either way, he's going to be given the reins of the offense at some point and is a must-own player in keeper formats.

Browns | Baker Mayfield not close to starting yet

Sun, 17 Jun 2018 10:44:31 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield "still has a long way to go" to unseat Tyrod Taylor as the starter, according to Ben Volin of The Boston Globe.

Fantasy Tip: While Taylor has "held up his end of the bargain with not just the way he works but the way he plays and the way he leads," according to head coach Hue Jackson, Mayfield is already stealing second-team snaps away from Drew Stanton. The No. 1 overall pick still seems like a good bet to start at some point in 2018, but it is quite possible his opportunity may not come until the Browns have been eliminated from postseason consideration.

Browns | Baker Mayfield not ready for top spot

Thu, 14 Jun 2018 12:13:44 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield is making good progress but has a long way to go before he is ready to compete with QB Tyrod Taylor for the starting quarterback job, according to offensive coordinator Todd Haley.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Mayfield will begin his rookie season as the No. 2 quarterback but could start at some point in 2018. He should be avoided in standard leagues but will be a solid choice in keeper leagues.

Browns | Baker Mayfield struggles Wednesday

Wed, 23 May 2018 18:42:19 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield threw three interceptions during organized team activities Wednesday, May 23, with two of the three interceptions tipping off receivers' hands.

Fantasy Tip: Mayfield is currently the No. 3 quarterback for the Browns but should move up the depth chart during training camp. He may not be the starting quarterback for the opener but has a decent chance to start at some point in 2018. He will be a popular pick in keeper leagues but can be avoided in standard leagues.

Browns | Baker Mayfield taking third-team reps

Wed, 23 May 2018 10:46:48 -0700

Cleveland Browns rookie QB Baker Mayfield was practicing with the third-team offense during organized team activities Wednesday, May 23. QBs Tyrod Taylor and Drew Stanton practiced ahead of Mayfield.

Fantasy Tip: We already know that Taylor will start the season. Mayfield should be able to earn the backup job and potentially vie for the starting role. For now, though, Taylor is comfortably in backup quarterback territory and Mayfield is almost strictly a dynasty target.
