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. AvoidThe Giants gave him some new toys in Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney, but the offensive line is still a mess. In addition, Saquon Barkley is coming off a devastating knee injury. It's a make or break year for Jones. My money is on break. Avoid
Joe Pisapia

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.Daniel Jones is a turnover machine. In the 27 NFL games he's played in, Jones has 29 fumbles and 22 INTs. The one crutch is that when Saquon Barkley is healthy, he's been a better version of himself statistically. A healthy run game goes a long way for any QB, but Wayne Gallman had some strong games last year, while Jones continued to spiral. The Giants offensive line is still nothing to write home about. The curious mish-mosh of WR receiver additions year over year (Kenny Golladay, John Ross, Kadarius Toney) have set Jones up for a situation where it all doesn't come together, the Giants (and all of their massive 2022 draft capital) will be selecting another QB. Last year, the Broncos created a similar situation surrounding QB Drew Lock with so much talent it appeared "too big to fail," but it failed nonetheless. This may be the end for Daniel Jones.
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
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.It is put up or shut up time for Daniel Jones after getting some new weapons. If this does truly unlock Jones' potential, he could be a good dart throw late in drafts.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
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.Jones had 423 yards rushing and 1 rushing touchdown last year, but in Year 3 he needs to be a better passer to justify the Giants continuing to entrust the franchise to him. He is a low-upside QB2.
