    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (ankle) is expected to be fine to play in Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    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.

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle Sunday, Oct. 14, and will receive treatment this week. He's not expected to miss time.

    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

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield went 22-for-46 for 238 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 6.

    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

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 25-of-43 passes for a 342 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 5 overtime win against the Baltimore Ravens.

    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

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield faces the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5, and since John Harbaugh became the coach, the Ravens have held rookie quarterbacks to a 59.6 passer rating, the lowest in the NFL in that span.

    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

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 21-of-41 passes for 295 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 4 overtime loss against the Oakland Raiders and he lost two fumbles, too.

    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

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield was named the team's starting quarterback Monday, Sept. 24.

    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

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield will be named the team's starting quarterback Monday, Sept. 24.

    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

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield has yet to be named the starting quarterback by head coach Hue Jackson, who said he needed to watch game film before naming a starter.

    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

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 17 of 23 passes (73.9 percent) for 201 yards against the New York Jets on Thursday, Sept. 20. Mayfield entered the game late in the second quarter after QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) suffered a concussion.

    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.

  • Posted: 8/30/2018 6:27pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed nine of his 16 passes for 138 yards against the Detroit Lions in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 30.

    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

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield will play the entire first half of the final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 30.

    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

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield will start the final preseason game with head coach Hue Jackson resting the starters. Jackson said Mayfield could play a full half.

    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

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield may play as much as a half in the final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 30, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    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

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield likely will be the primary backup quarterback this season, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    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

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (head) exited the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Aug. 23. He was evaluated for a concussion but passed the tests.

    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

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (leg) will head to the bench when the regular season starts, but head coach Hue Jackson wants to see as much of him as possible during the remainder of the preseason. He is likely to play the entire second half in the third preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Aug. 23.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield has spent the first two days of rookie camp taking a majority of his snaps from under center. 'We are going to hammer that until I am good and it feels natural,' Mayfield said. 'That is the way it should be because I can play out of the 'gun. Everybody here knows that.'

    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

    The New England Patriots reportedly were interested enough in University of Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield to pull off a trade with the New York Giants for the No. 2 overall pick prior to the start of the NFL Draft if he fell past the Cleveland Browns at No. 1, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

    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

    Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield's release is so fast that his lack of size isn't an issue, according to general manager John Dorsey. 'If you want to look at balls batted down at the line of scrimmage, he had the least amount of anybody.'

    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

    The Cleveland Browns selected Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield with the first overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Thursday, April 26.

    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

    Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield is hosting a private workout for the Miami Dolphins Wednesday, March 21.

    Huddle Up: Mayfield is only an option in long-term fantasy formats for now.

  • Posted: 2/19/2018 3:26pm ET

    Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield will dine with members of the Miami Dolphins prior to Oklahoma's pro day March 14. The Dolphins own the No. 11 overall pick in this year's draft and are making an effort to get to know Mayfield if he remains available at that spot.

    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

    Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield is high on Cleveland Browns consultant Scot McCloughan's draft board. McCloughan has already endorsed Mayfield as his top quarterback in this year's draft class, describing the polarizing signal-caller as a 'shorter Brett Favre.'

    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.
