Baker Mayfield completed 22 of his 36 pass attempts for 197 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's 26-16 loss to the Panthers. He also lost a fumble in the defeat.
Mayfield threw the ball a season-high 36 times on Sunday, but he once again was disappointing against a team that has had a soft pass defense through the first few weeks of the season. It has simply been an ugly start for the quarterback this year, but one bright spot from this week was his connection with Christian McCaffrey. Mayfield and CMC connected nine times for 81 yards and a touchdown, which is encouraging going forward. However, Mayfield should not be considered in fantasy due to his overall subpar play through four weeks.
