Do you recall how horrendous Jared Goff was under Jeff Fisher back in 2016 where he averaged just 5.3 yards per attempt while throwing five touchdowns and seven interceptions? The very next year, Goff averaged 8.0 yards per attempt with 28 touchdowns and seven interceptions. It just goes to show how big of an effect a coach can have on an offense, especially one led by a young quarterback. Is Kevin Stefanski the right coach? Time will tell, but don't forget Mayfield was being drafted as the No. 4 quarterback in fantasy drafts last year. The talent is there and the surrounding cast got even better.Minshew is someone who might be a bit underrated by fantasy owners coming into the 2020 fantasy season. It took an average of 15.2 fantasy points to finish as a top-18 quarterback in 2019. Minshew hit that mark in 71.4 percent of his starts, highlighting a sturdy floor, as there were just 11 quarterbacks who posted a higher number than him. With no competent backup, this is Minshew's team to run for the season, and that brings stability in 2QB leagues.

 The Minshew hype is getting a bit out of control. Last year he was 21st in PPG for QBs and that was even with 344 rushing yards. He simply does not have many weapons outside of Chark.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Let's not be so quick to forget that Baker broke the NFL rookie passing TD record despite not even playing a full season. Last year was a nightmare because of the offensive line and Odell Beckham Jr's injuries but both problems are seemingly fixed. There is upside for sure, but the new Head Coach loves to run the football so we likely won't get to see Baker fully unleashed in 2020.Minshew was among the league's most efficient and consistent quarterbacks last season but he didn't play the full season and his TD-rate was unsustainably low both through the air and on the ground. Now that he is the clear-cut starting QB, he has a chance to leap into the top 10 with all the volume he should get while playing from behind.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
This offense is going to be built around the run game, which limits Mayfield's overall ceiling from a fantasy perspective. However, we've seen Kirk Cousins be fantasy relevant in certain matchups over the past couple of seasons and that's around what we should expect from Mayfield this year.Minshew surprisingly ran for 344 yards last year, which will always help boost fantasy value. He'll be a fringe starter every single week and is currently a steal at his QB27 ADP price tag.
Kevin Wheeler

 Minshew was a top ten fantasy quarterback from weeks 1-9 last season, has upgraded weapons surrounding him, underrated rushing ability (344 yards rushing in 14 games, fifth most in the league) @mrhill9169 Gardner Minshew had the third-best passer rating on play-action throws last year (136.4), but the lowest rate of play-action passes (14%) among 34 qualifying QBs (via PFF). @Pat_Thorman
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Despite the additions of OBJ and Kareem Hunt, the Cleveland Browns looked more like the, well, Cleveland Browns in 2019. It's hard to know how much of the blame should fall on their sophomore QB but Freddie Kitchens should certainly shoulder the majority. With his third head coach and his third new system in three years, it's hard to know what we should expect from Baker this season. I'm not bullish on the youngster but I do believe there's enough upside to make him a viable fantasy option. He also has the job safety to make him a reasonable superflex choice. Just understand this offence is likely to be run-heavy so don't expect too much from Mayfield in upside.I'll admit it, I was wrong. I was sure the Jags would bring in some serious competition for GMII but instead they brought in some really sensible supporting pieces, a raw rookie and Mike Glennon. This isn't Minshew's position to lose, it's Minshew's role for 2020 and maybe beyond. While I don't think it's impossible Doug Marrone brings in Cam Newton, i reckon it's more likely the Jags stick with Minshew through 2020 and reassess before the 2021 draft. While they may be in full rebuild, there's likely to be enough passing volume in this attack to make Gardner a low level streaming option this season with upside for more if things really click.

Paced as QB6 from the bye week on(10 weeks) with bottom half of the league numbers in ATT. Thanks to those first 6 weeks you can now get him at an appropriate price, unlike last year.
