Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Baker looked better on the field last week against Cincinnati, but he still wasn't able to get it done for fantasy football. He's now the QB27 on the season and shouldn't be considered in this matchup against a tough defensive front.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Mahomes torched the Ravens for 374 yards passing and 3 passing touchdowns last year. There just is not a defense capable of holding him down when he is on his A game. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 Maybe we overreacted about Mayfield's poor performance against a great Ravens defense? We can't overreact to a good performance against the Bengals, though. Through two games, Mayfield has been pressured on just 30 percent of his dropbacks, but the Washington front four is one of the most talented in the league and will force Mayfield into some tough decisions. Carson Wentz tried holding onto the ball too long, while Kyler Murray utilized his legs. The two combined for just 6.95 yards per attempt against this defense. They've generated a sack on 12.1 percent of dropbacks, which ranks as the second-highest mark in the league. When under pressure last year, Mayfield had a 62.0 QB Rating, which ranked 22nd among quarterbacks. Through two games in 2020, he has a 24.6 QB Rating when under pressure. If someone looks at the fantasy points allowed, they'll see that Washington has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks, but that's a bit misleading due to the two rushing touchdowns they allowed to Murray last week. Remove those and they've allowed the seventh-fewest points per attempt to quarterbacks. The Browns receivers can win their one-on-one matchups, but Mayfield may not have the time to get the ball downfield. He took a step in the right direction last week, but he's still just a low-end QB2 in a run-first offense against a team that doesn't score many points.
