Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Mayfield was very efficient in leading the Browns to a victory over Carolina last week, but it didn't translate into big fantasy production. He's face off with a Broncos defense this week that will be missing top corner Chris Harris, but a trip to Mile High is still a tough assignment for a rookie QB. Mayfield has earned every-week starter status in two-QB leagues, but this isn't the best week to stream him in single QB formats.

DEN has allowed 300 yards-plus passing in 3 of last 4 including last week to SF 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It wasn't a massive fantasy performance out of Mayfield last week, though he was very efficient while completing 18-of-22 passes for 238 yards (10.8 yards per attempt). Teams have had trouble running the ball against the Broncos as of late, so we should see the attempts rise a bit this week. After losing Chris Harris Jr. in the secondary, the Broncos are suddenly a matchup to target for opposing quarterbacks. Nick Mullens took full advantage last week when he piled up 332 yards and two touchdowns on just 33 attempts, while missing his starting running back and possession receiver. Truth be told, the Broncos have been on a downward spiral for quite some time now, as they've allowed 324.5 pass yards per game and 9.0 yards per attempt over the last six weeks. They've also allowed 12 passing touchdowns in that time but have intercepted seven passes as well. They'll be without Harris Jr. and potentially Tramaine Brock as well, so we should see Mayfield back on the streaming radar for this game. They're projected for just 20.5 points but that feels a bit low. He should be considered a high-end QB2 this week against a Broncos team trending in the wrong direction.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Broncos are 17th against fantasy quarterbacks, Mayfield is a low-upside QB2 at home.
