Baker Mayfield Week 1 Outlook - Buccaneers at Vikings

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Sun, Sep 10th 2023, 12:05pm EDT

This former No. 1 overall pick is set to make his debut with the Buccaneers, the fourth team he's played for in the last two years. Mayfield played poorly in seven games with the Panthers last season but then played reasonably well in four late-season starts with the Rams and a heavily depleted supporting cast. There's a flickering candle of hope that Mayfield can be a competent starter for the Bucs this season, but fantasy managers would be wise to monitor Mayfield from afar for now. There's simply too much risk and too little reward to using Mayfield in fantasy. He hasn't thrown for 300 or more yards in a game since October 2021, and he hasn't thrown three or more TD passes in a game since December 2020.
