While I don't expect Mayfield to start Week 1, this has John Fox in Chicago written all over it. After saying that Mitch Trubisky wasn't going to start, they had no choice but to go to the rookie. While Tyrod Taylor isn't Mike Glennon-bad, he's not going to carry the team to new heights, which is what is needed to save Hue Jackson's job. If you're looking for a rookie to snag at the end of a keeper draft, Mayfield is the one to do it with, as he's got Russell Wilson-type upside, just don't expect him to start for at least half the season.

Baker Mayfield has "a long way to go" to challenge Taylor

In a recent article, beat writer Rob Rang reports that Browns offensive coordinator Todd Haley said Baker Mayfield has "a long way to go" before challenging veteran Tyrod Taylor.

Fantasy Impact

It's what should have been expected, given the fact that the Browns traded the first pick in the third-round despite knowing they would draft Mayfield shortly thereafter. The reports out of Cleveland to this point have been that Taylor is mastering Haley's offense and that you can clearly see the gap between him and Mayfield. You shouldn't be shocked to see Taylor start 10 games before the Browns bye in Week 11, making Mayfield an afterthought in redraft leagues. You should still be buying him in dynasty leagues, though.
