Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There have been a lot of people talking about Stafford's 2019 season before injury, highlighting that it could be a sign of things to come. He was the No. 6 quarterback in fantasy through nine weeks, yes. But do you know who No. 5 was? Aaron Rodgers. That didn't end well. Stafford's 8.2 yards per attempt was easily a career high and just the second time in his career over 7.6 yards per attempt. He's going to be a fine low-end QB1/high-end QB2, but he's not likely to be a league winner at this stage of his career.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.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Stafford was on pace for almost 5,000 yards passing and 38 passing touchdowns before he missed 8 games due to a back injury. The big worry at this point for the 32-year old quarterback is durability playing on a bad team. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Stafford was on fire before his injury last season and was a solid fantasy option. He's currently being drafted as the QB13 and should easily return that value in 2020.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.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
If we can just re-run last year and his career year that he was having before injury, he'll be a steady play for your fantasy team. Don't have to expect a career year 2 years in a row, just need Hockenson to take another step forward, and a hopefully improved run game to keep the offense humming.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.
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Before his Week 10 injury last season, Matthew Stafford was QB6 and in the talks for MVP. He returns this year with the same solid group of WR's as last year with the key addition of 2nd round rookie RB DeAndre Swift. Stafford has been known to stuff the stat sheets throughout his career and in an offense with this much firepower, we could see another top 10 finish in 2020.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.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
After years of fantasy mediocrity and seemingly out of nowhere, Matthew Stafford exploded out of the blocks to start the 2019 season, averaging his most fantasy points per game since 2011. Heading into 2020, he provides a relatively safe option with sudden and surprising upside who you can grab later in drafts then many of the more established fantasy guns. He's a great option if he's still there in the double digit rounds of fantasy drafts.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.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
He was the QB6 through 9 weeks last year before going to the IR.
