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. 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.

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.

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.
