Win My Fantasy League
 Now looks like Tyrod will be given a long leash
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Bradford has boasted a 68.6 completion % over the past three seasons, so he could deliver sneaky value in two-QB leagues. Yet he has not played 16 games in 2012, and Josh Rosen is waiting for his turn. 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Bradford is no lock to hold his job through the pre-season and we know he is as injury prone as they come, but if he does end up starting, Bradford offers much more than the general public will remember. He is by no means a QB1 or even close, but he does have the best QB-rating over his past 16 starts than anyone in the NFL.Tyrod is a significant upgrade over what the Browns have been putting out in prior years but it is only a matter of time before Drew Brees 2.0 takes over and starts lighting up defenses with a tremendous receiver core. He could immediately be a top 15 fantasy QB when the change happens.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
We'll have to keep an eye on the quarterback competition in Arizona, but if Rosen can look competent, he probably has the edge to start.Mayfield might not win the job to start the season, but he'll likely get his chance at some point. When he does, I like his upside as a running quarterback and play-maker on a team filled with play-makers.
Staff Rankings
QB List
 Mayfield likely won't start the year as the Browns' starting quarterback (that'll go to┬áTyrod Taylor), but he'll more than likely end up there sooner rather than later. If you told me Mayfield was the guaranteed starter from Week 1, I'd have him higher given the talent in the Browns receiving corps, but that's not the case. That being said, I could see Mayfield coming in midseason and being an interesting quarterback for really deep leagues or two-quarterback leagues.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Major injury concern or he'd be top-15 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
In theory, Bradford could be a steal. He does have Josh Rosen breathing down his neck and his knees could give at any moment, though 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After being given $20 million despite not having a clean bill of health, Bradford seemed like he was a lock to start for the Cardinals this year. After they landed Josh Rosen in the first-round, things are a bit cloudier, as he was widely considered as the most pro-ready quarterback in the class. By selecting Bradford (even in 2QB leagues), you're playing with fire. While I don't expect Mayfield to start Week 1, this has John Fox in Chicago written all over it. After saying that Mitch Trubisky wasn't going to start, they had no choice but to go to the rookie. While Tyrod Taylor isn't Mike Glennon-bad, he's not going to carry the team to new heights, which is what is needed to save Hue Jackson's job. If you're looking for a rookie to snag at the end of a keeper draft, Mayfield is the one to do it with, as he's got Russell Wilson-type upside, just don't expect him to start for at least half the season.
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
Bradford is one of the most accurate passers in the game and could be a great fit with Larry Fitzgerald, but he simply can't be relied upon to stay healthy and now has Josh Rosen right at his heels. Projecting Bradford to play even 12-13 games is a volatile strategy. Mayfield is going to see the field this year, but Tyrod could easily play well enough to hold Mayfield to mop up and situational snaps.
