I don't care which quarterback we were talking about, but if someone is averaging just 26.5 pass attempts per game, he's not going to be a fantasy asset unless he offers Lamar Jackson-like mobility. It's fair to say Mayfield doesn't. Not just that, but he hasn't been an efficient passer, completing just 60.8 percent of his passes for 7.0 yards per attempt. He has thrown a touchdown on 5.7 percent of his passes, which is above the league average, but again, the lack of volume is limiting him to just 1.5 touchdowns per game. This week's matchup is enticing, though. Passing, rushing, it doesn't matter; the Jaguars have allowed 1.59 PPR points per offensive play to their opponents, which is the second-most in the league, behind only the Falcons. Them and the Jets are the only two teams who are below average against every position. It sure helps that they've allowed a touchdown pass on 6.03 percent of pass attempts, which ranks as the fourth-highest mark in the league. It also helps to know quarterbacks have completed 70.1 percent of their passes against them. They just haven't generated pressure, as evidenced by their league-low 2.52 percent sack-rate. It won't help that they'll be without Josh Allen, their top pass-rusher for this game. We know Mayfield isn't a mobile quarterback, so when you break it down to passes only (no rushing), the Jaguars have allowed a massive 0.548 fantasy points per pass attempt to quarterbacks, which is the third-most in football. Even if Mayfield threw the ball just 30 times, it would amount to 16.4 fantasy points on average, which is a decent mark for streamers. But can we count on 30 pass attempts? That's a number he hasn't hit since way back in Week 5. Mayfield hasn't thrown for more than 247 yards in 9-of-10 games this year, which means he's extremely touchdown-dependent. The Browns should be running the ball in the red zone, which makes Mayfield a low-end QB2 despite the plus matchup.I mentioned last week that you shouldn't bury Dalton for one bad game as the starter. I mean, everyone has a bad day, though his came on national television when everyone was watching. We had nine seasons worth of competent quarterback play in a worse offense with worse receiving options. We can't pretend he's fixed because of one good game, but we never should've buried him for one bad game. Throwing for 203 yards and three touchdowns was a start, but now he'll go against the defense that knocked him out cold back in Week 7 when he completed just 9-of-19 passing for 75 scoreless yards. Washington is one of six teams who've allowed fewer than 1.30 PPR points per offensive play, so seeing him struggle in that game shouldn't have been too shocking. Washington has generated a sack on 9.4 percent of dropbacks, which ranks as the second-highest number in the league, and a lot different than the Vikings last week (nearly half the percentage). On the season, Washington has allowed just four quarterbacks finish better than the QB20 against them, and just one of those games has come since Week 5. In today's passing league, it's odd to see a team allow just four quarterbacks to finish with more than 212 passing yards against them, but that's where we're at with Washington. Dalton is not someone you should aim to stream on Thanksgiving.

With dealing with the rain last week, Mayfield struggled to get anything done against a solid Eagles defense. He has a much better matchup here against the Jaguars, but there's a strong possibility that the Browns only throw the ball 18 times in this game. Mayfield's in the streaming conversation due to the matchup, but he's certainly a risky start.
