QB - CLE
Jake Trotter of ESPN reports that the Browns have exercised the fifth-year option of QB Baker Mayfield.
Trotter went on to say that the move will extend Mayfield's contract through 2022. Mayfield had a bounce-back season in 2020 under new OC Kevin Stefanski. He threw for 26 touchdowns and only eight interceptions after throwing 21 of them in 2019. The play-action really helped Mayfield operate and open up things for him. He showed enough last season to gain the Browns trust in him and he was rewarded by getting his contract exercised for a fifth-year option. While he isn't a top tier QB, he can be a solid QB2 and streamer for fantasy drafts in 2021.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield completed 23-of-37 passes for 204 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in a 22-17 loss to the Chiefs in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.
Mayfield put together a solid game but just couldn't lead his team to the comeback win. His touchdown pass was a four-yard completion to Jarvis Landry in the third quarter. The veteran quarterback had an up-and-down season but he got stronger as the year went on. He will be a QB2 in fantasy in 2021.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield completed 21-of-34 passes for 263 yards and three touchdowns in a 48-37 win over the Steelers in the Wild Card round.
Mayfield fired touchdown passes to Nick Chubb, Jarvis Landry, and Austin Hooper. The win means that Cleveland will be heading to Kansas City to face the Chiefs in the Divisional Round. Mayfield is worth a look as a value QB in DFS contests next week.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield completed 17-of-27 passes for 196 yards and a touchdown in a 24-22 win over Pittsburgh in Week 17.
Mayfield also added 44 rushing yards in the win, which will send Cleveland to the playoffs for the first time since the 2002 season. He will get a rematch against the Steelers in the Wild Card round but things could be more difficult for him as Pittsburgh rested several key defensive players in Week 17.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield completed 28-of-53 passes for 285 yards in a 23-16 loss to the Jets in Week 16.
Mayfield fumbled three times, losing two of them. It was a disappointing day for the Browns, who were forced to place their top four wide receivers on the reserve/COVID-19 list before the game. Mayfield will be hard to trust in Week 17 in a tough matchup against the Steelers.
