It was a game to be forgotten for Mayfield last week. He needs to have a short memory, though. The last time he played this Bengals team, he was coming off a brutal game where he completed just 53.8 percent of his passes for 189 yards and one touchdown. In that Week 2 game against the Bengals, however, he was able to complete a season-high 69.6 percent of passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns on just 23 pass attempts. Keep in mind he did that while the duo of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt combined for 210 yards and three touchdowns on the ground. While I love Hunt this week, he's not going to produce that much. Prior to last week's debacle, Mayfield had thrown at least two touchdowns in each of his last four games. The Bengals have allowed multiple touchdowns to quarterbacks in each of their last five games, including Philip Rivers last week, who showed signs of life when he threw for 371 yards and three touchdowns after being left for dead. That was the second time in three games they'd allowed a quarterback throw for 350-plus yards, as Gardner Minshew hit that mark in Week 4. It's hard to trust Mayfield after that disaster in Week 6 but he's not the worst streaming option this week as a middling QB2.

Baker Mayfield shreds Bengals with five TDs

Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield had a big afternoon in a 37-34 win over the Bengals in Week 7. Mayfield completed 22-of-28 passes for 297 yards, five touchdowns, and one interception in the win.

Fantasy Impact

Mayfield's afternoon got off to a rough start as he threw his interception on Cleveland's first pass attempt of the game. He bounced back with a huge performance, capped off by a game-winning touchdown pass to rookie Donovan Peoples-Jones with 15 seconds left on the clock. Mayfield will be a high-end QB2 in Week 8 against the Raiders.
