    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
