Expert 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Mayfield seems pretty average on paper, but an improved system, better coaching, and loads of surrounding talent may fix him and turn him into fantasy gold. 
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
There's no question that replacing head coach Freddie Kitchens and offensive coordinator Todd Monken with Kevin Stefanski and Alex Van Pelt constitutes a major upgrade. But Cleveland now has Case Keenum as an option if Mayfield continues to struggle. 
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 offense is likely to be run-heavy so don't expect too much from Mayfield in upside.It looks like Jameis Winston will sit in 2020 behind Drew Brees. It's clearly the correct long term move and it does give him the possibility of some fantasy value if Brees goes down and Sean Payton doesn't actually use Taysom Hill.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was a nightmare sophomore season for Mayfield, who regressed rather than progressed. His completion percentage dropped 4.4 points, yards per attempt dropped 0.5 yards, he threw five less touchdowns, and threw seven more interceptions. Wait, I thought Odell Beckham was supposed to help? It's clear that Freddie Kitchens hurt all players involved, as even Nick Chubb was extremely inefficient in the red zone, totaling negative 16 yards on nine carries inside the five-yard-line. Let's just erase that season, shall we? Kevin Stefanski will be the new head coach and play caller. Do we have a lot to go off? Not really. What we do know is that they added two offensive linemen who'll make a difference at the most important positions, as well as add a pass-catching tight end. It seems they would like to replicate what the Vikings did last year under Stefanski, which would be brutal for Mayfield's outlook, as Kirk Cousins threw the ball just 444 times. Mayfield has some mobility but not enough to overcome that low of volume through the air. But knowing that's possible, we know Mayfield could have a lower floor than most would like to admit. He should be treated as an excellent QB2 in Superflex/2QB formats, while being looked at as a streamer in standard leagues. 
Frank Bonincontri
Fantasy Wire HQ
Playing behind the best O-line he has had in awhile, FA addition Conklin can provide the run game boost and the pass game. Plenty of weapons on the perimeter, no excuse this season 
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. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Mayfield is looking to rebound after a disappointing 2019 season when he threw for 22 TDs and 21 INTs. With weapons like Odell Beckham Jr, Jarvis Landry, and Austin Hooper, Mayfield will have every chance to get back on track. 
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
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. 
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
 Signed a one year contract with the Saints, which means he'll need an injury to be relevant in fantasy this year.
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
New weapons and improved line after FA and draft = big. Still, while Kevin Stefanski should be a major "real-life" boon for Mayfield's development, his run-heavy scheme isn't ideal from a fantasy perspective.
