It took a little while last season for everything to click under the new offensive structure, but Mayfield was the QB11 in all of fantasy football from Weeks 11-17. He's being completely written off currently with his current ADP, but he'll absolutely have his moments of relevancy throughout the 2021 campaign. Keep an eye on Mayfield as a streaming option as we move into the regular season and he's a perfectly competent QB2 for your Superflex rosters.Since 2018, Darnold is top-4 in the NFL in terms of Interception Rate with 3.20%. He's behind only Jameis Winston, Nick Mullens, and Ryan Fitzpatrick in this category, which is a place that you never want to be. We can all acknowledge that Darnold hasn't exactly been great over the past few seasons, but we collectively need to give him a second chance to operate out from underneath Adam Gase. Turning the page, he's absolutely set up to succeed here in Carolina with a bevy of talented receiving weapons and he could show us the talent that made him the No. 3 overall pick back in 2018. While he's not someone that I want to rely on as a QB1 in my fantasy leagues this year, he's a perfectly competent QB2 in Superflex leagues. In some drafts, you might be able to secure him as your QB3 with his current ADP being where it's at. If that's the case, he's worth the investment at that point.

A run heavy offense helped take the pressure off Mayfield and he did decent. Star WR Odell Beckham is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in late October. I wouldn't count on OBJ for much this year. Even though the Browns have a good line it's hard to envision any upside for Mayfield. They run it too much and it might take Beckham another year until he feels like his old self. Avoid.UPDATE.... Rumors are swirling around Houston that DeShaun Watson could be traded within a week. Per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the two teams showing the most interest appear to be Miami and Carolina. If this transpires, whatever little value Sam Darnold has in 2021 would plummet. Note nothing is imminent. However, sometimes where there's smoke, there's fire. Stay tuned. The book is still out on Sam Darnold. The Jets didn't put anyone around him. The Panthers have some weapons, but their offensive line is terrible. Darnold throws off his back foot too much. He reminds me of Jay Cutler, only with a weaker arm. I'm not touching him. Avoid.

He might not become the superstar we once though he could be, but Mayfield was downright good last year. Accounting for strength of schedule, he had the 10th best QBR in 2020. Additionally, Mayfield got better as the season moved along, finishing with a 15:2 TD:INT ratio over his final eight games. Cleveland began passing more down the stretch as well, which would mean more fantasy-viable weeks for Mayfield should the trend extend in to '21.

We watched Mayfield take major strides in Kevin Stefanski's offense as the year went on in 2020, but it's important to remember that he didn't throw the ball more than 33 times in 12-of-16 games. They want to play good defense and run the ball as much as possible, which makes Mayfield much more efficient. While he's a great target in 2QB leagues, there's rarely a week-to-week ceiling to his projection.Ok, we're out of excuses for Darnold. It's now or never and he's getting his shot in Joe Brady's pass-friendly offense with some tremendous weapons. The one issue that remains, however, is that his offensive line is brutal. Despite that, Teddy Bridgewater was able to post 19-plus fantasy points in seven games last year, and that was while throwing just 15 touchdowns. The Panthers traded him for essentially nothing, and then passed on Justin Fields and Mac Jones in the draft, so they clearly believe Darnold can be their long-term answer. I don't want to hold it against Darnold that he had to play for Adam Gase in two of his first three seasons, but at the same time, he's thrown more than two touchdowns in just three of his 38 career games to this point and offers minimal fantasy upside on the ground. Because of that, it's hard to see him as a true breakout performer this year, but he should be a great target in Superflex/2QB leagues because he's not going to lose the job anytime soon, so you have an every-week starter.

Baker Mayfield has had some challenges in his first three seasons; different HC and play-callers every year, injuries around him, and lofty expectations. In the second half of last season, Nick Chubb got healthy, the offense got simplified, and Mayfield became very proficient in running lots of play-action, forcing him to be more direct with the football. This was the secret to the Browns' success last year. A less reckless Baker Mayfield was a better quarterback in 2020. The throws you get away with in college are interceptions in the NFL. Ironically, this "Better Baker" evolved with Odell Beckham Jr. on the shelf. He will continue to have some decent moments, but in reality, he's a QB2 in Superflex who will have plenty of all or nothing weeks. If he can pick up where he left off (14 TD/2 INT over his last eight games to close out 2020), he could sneak into the back end of QB1. But even over that good second half, Mayfield put up 31 fantasy points against the Ravens and just 8 points against the 2-win Jets. Mayfield is an inconsistent asset until proven otherwise over an entire season. It is also fair to remember two of his home games last year were in weather conditions that made throwing the football nearly impossible.Sam Darnold's NFL failure can be attributed to Adam Gase. Not all of it, but enough of a chunk that I am buying into the Darnold reclamation project the Panthers have taken on in 2021. He goes from being bereft of weapons to having arguably the best RB in football in Christian McCaffrey and two talented receivers in DJ Moore and Robby Anderson (whom Darnold is familiar with from their Jet days). He will also benefit from OC Joe Brady, whom I thought was one of the top play-callers in the NFL last year, and stunned he didn't receive more attention as an HC candidate around the league. Three years ago, Darnold was an excellent QB prospect. At 23 years old, it's far too soon to throw him away.

 LOVE Joe Brady's offense and these weapons. If Darnold is any good, he's in a perfect spot to show it. Not convinced he is, but willing to take a stab to find out

Everyone seems to forget a very, very simple truth: Baker Mayfield is worse when OBJ plays. I know, it sounds crazy, but the stats don't lie. Without OBJ, despite playing in some insane weather and COVID protocols that held the offense back, Mayfield's QB rating raised 13 points and his TD/INT Ratio went from 10/6 with OBJ to 18/2 without him. The return of OBJ may actually be a bad thing for the fantasy prospects of Mayfield.The curse of Adam Gase has been lifted. Now, Darnold gets a fresh start on a team that has enough weapons to succeed in the NFL. The talent is there, but can he overcome his mental hurdles and bounce back? If he does, he could be one of the surprise risers in fantasy football this season.

Mayfield was a better NFL quarterback that fantasy quarterback this year and it remains to be seen if he can build on his solid play in the second half of the season. Mayfield is a QB2 with both some upside and risk due to inconsistent play over his first three years.
