Huddle Up: Mayfield and the Browns have five victories, looking like an NFL caliber team for the first time in a while. The rookie has emerged as a high-end QB2, and could push into that QB1 area in 2019. He is a strong dynasty option, too.
Posted: 12/2/2018 1:20pm ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield was playing well over the last few weeks but struggled against the Texans this week. He will be facing the Carolina Panthers in Week 14 and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Huddle Up: Mayfield has been on a undeniable roll since the coaching change in Cleveland, but keep in the mind the above two games came against the Falcons and Bengals, which happen to be the two teams allowing the most points to opposing fantasy QBs. Now, in Week 13, he gets a road matchup against the Texans, who surrender the sixth-fewest fantasy QB points, and that's why he's ranked as mid-level QB2 option.

Huddle Up: Mayfield is quietly putting up QB1-level numbers and is coming off his best game of the season, throwing for four TDs and 258 yards in the Week 12 rout of the Bengals. Even with the bye weeks now behind us, he's definitely startable in the right matchups.

Huddle Up: Mayfield has thrown at least one TD pass in each of his eight starts, and he has two or more scoring strikes in five in a row. The rookie has emerged as a low-end QB1 in fantasy leagues of 14 or more teams heading into Week 13 against the Houston Texans.
Posted: 11/11/2018 1:38pm ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield has thrown at least two touchdowns in each of his last four games even though he has been held to under 220 yards in three of those games. He will be on bye next week but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues in Week 12.
Posted: 11/4/2018 4:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield just missed out on 300 yards, but he had a pretty decent day for his fantasy owners who took a chance streaming him due to bye weeks. Next up for the Browns is a visit from the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10.
Posted: 11/4/2018 12:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners should monitor the situation over the next few days to see if Mayfield deals with any concussion-like symptoms. He should still be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.
Posted: 10/28/2018 1:38pm ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield has thrown four touchdowns and only one interception over the last two games and could have some success against the Kansas City Chiefs next week. He likely will not be a starting option in most leagues but could be a bye week replacement in some deeper leagues.
Posted: 10/21/2018 4:28pm ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield threw for at least two touchdowns for the second time in four starts, and three of his starts have been decided in overtime. He has made football exciting again in Cleveland, and he appears to have a very bright future. The rookie is still more of a QB2 or streaming option when your primary option is on a bye, but he is a great long-term fantasy option.

Huddle Up: Mayfield had a rough go of things in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers, but the schedule eases up over the next month, beginning this week versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The rookie's biggest issue at the moment is having enough healthy receivers to take advantage. Nevertheless, Mayfield should be a capable streaming option at the very least.
Posted: 10/15/2018 6:32am ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield is a low-end QB2 as he ranks 20th in standard leagues in fantasy points the last three weeks. However, he faces the best matchup possible with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If you have an iffy matchup or a bye to cover, Mayfield might be an option.
Posted: 10/14/2018 1:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield has played well at times this season but has thrown five interceptions in his last three games. He should have a favorable matchup next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and could be a bye week replacement in some leagues.
Posted: 10/7/2018 2:38pm ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield's first start at home was successful, and he has led the team to victories in two of his past three appearances while narrowly missing a win last week in Oakland. The Browns are suddenly NFL caliber, and they'll look to build on the win next week against the visiting Chargers.
Posted: 10/6/2018 7:07pm ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield has flashed some potential in limited action, but he won't be more than a QB2 candidate against a Baltimore squad that has been impressive on both sides of the ball so far this season.
Posted: 9/30/2018 7:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield tried to force some things, but he generally did a good job in his first-career start and he probably should have had his first victory in regulation if not for a controversial replay call. He should still be treated as a QB2 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 5 against the visiting Ravens.
Posted: 9/24/2018 10:06am ET
Huddle Up: This is a move that has been expected since Mayfield replaced an injured Tyrod Taylor and led the Browns back from a 14-0 deficit in Week 3 against the New York Jets. His promotion figures to be good news for the entire offense, although Jarvis Landry, David Njoku and Antonio Callaway could end up benefiting the most given how Mayfield's accuracy. He belongs on the QB2 radar for now, beginning in Week 4 against the Oakland Raiders.
Posted: 9/23/2018 8:16am ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield led the team to their first win in over a year this week and likely will keep the job moving forward. He will not be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback every week but will be a starting option against certain opponents.
Posted: 9/21/2018 5:02am ET
Huddle Up: It's a formality after Mayfield led the team to its first win in 635 days. Mayfield would be a bye-week replacement against the Oakland Raiders in Week 4.
Posted: 9/20/2018 9:02pm ET
Huddle Up: There are a few cliches that spring to mind, but with apologies to Mike Tyson's "everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth," we're going to go with you can't put the genie back in the bottle again. Yes, Cleveland's "plan" was to sit Mayfield and let Taylor start this season, but after Thursday night it's hard to imagine the job isn't Mayfield's going forward. While there's little doubt Hue Jackson will slow-play the formal announcement, Mayfield simply looked much better under center (Taylor was 4-for-14 before exiting, and the team was down 14 points). Whether he'll produce fantasy-relevant numbers remains to be seen, but if you have a strong starter Mayfield could hold some appeal due to his upside.

Huddle Up: Mayfield didn't find the end zone, but he led the Browns on three scoring drives in the first half. He doesn't need to be owned in redraft leagues yet, but he should be stashed in all dynasty formats.
Posted: 8/30/2018 2:18pm ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield will be the No. 2 quarterback to start the season but could see playing time later if the team does not earn a playoff spot. He probably should only be an option in keeper leagues at this point.
Posted: 8/27/2018 1:15pm ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield's 2018 fantasy value is minimal as long as Tyrod Taylor is healthy. Even if/when he does start, he'll merely represent a serviceable backup quarterback.
Posted: 8/27/2018 9:42am ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield will be the No. 2 quarterback this season but could see playing time late in the season if the Browns are out of playoff contention. He should only be an option in keeper leagues at this point.
Posted: 8/26/2018 4:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield has had a solid preseason and could see playing time later in the season but will be behind Tyrod Taylor for the time being. Mayfield will be a valuable pick in keeper leagues but can be avoided in standard leagues.
Posted: 8/23/2018 8:02pm ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield will open the season on the bench for the Browns, and his fantasy value is limited to dynasty formats for the time being.
Posted: 8/22/2018 2:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield hasn't officially nailed down the primary backup job to starter Tyrod Taylor, but whether he is No. 2 or No. 3 isn't relevant. His fantasy value in redraft leagues is nil right now, although he has a bright future for those in dynasty formats.
Posted: 8/9/2018 11:48pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 7/26/2018 7:00pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 6/14/2018 12:13pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 5/23/2018 6:42pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 5/6/2018 6:37pm ET
Huddle Up: Unless the Browns decide to reverse course and Mayfield opens the year as the starter, he can be left on waivers in redraft leagues for now. However, he has enough potential to be owned in all dynasty formats.
Posted: 5/1/2018 9:59am ET
Huddle Up: The article seems to suggest Mayfield was the apple of the New York Jets' eye at No. 3 as well. Mayfield obviously went to the Browns with the first pick, while the Patriots ended up with LSU quarterback Danny Etling in the seventh round. Mayfield may not be worth much in fantasy leagues right away, but the level of reported interest in him at the top of the draft suggests he was several teams' top quarterback prospect.
Posted: 4/26/2018 6:19pm ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield will likely sit behind Tyrod Taylor in 2018, but he will be given the reins of the offense sooner rather than later. Grab him in keeper formats and hope the Heisman Trophy winner's playmaking ability translates to the next level.
Posted: 4/26/2018 5:17pm ET
Huddle Up: The Browns added Tyrod Taylor this offseason, so Mayfield likely will sit most of his rookie season. Mayfield should be a solid option in keeper leagues because he could start as early as 2019 but should be avoided in standard leagues.
Posted: 3/21/2018 8:55am ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield is only an option in long-term fantasy formats for now.
Posted: 2/19/2018 3:26pm ET
Huddle Up: Ryan Tannehill would have the inside track on Miami's starting job even if Mayfield were drafted, assuming Tannehill is at full health. Mayfield is a polarizing prospect in this year's draft and likely won't possess immediate fantasy value.
Posted: 2/5/2018 4:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Mayfield is lower on most pundits' draft boards. Only time will tell if Cleveland uses one of its two top-five draft picks on the former Sooner. If they do, fantasy owners can wait at least a year before seriously considering Mayfield for their fake squads. He'll at least need to beat out DeShone Kizer first.
