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 struggled immensely last week against a tough Steelers defense. While he wasn't being recommended as a streaming option last week, he hurt fantasy managers that took the chance on him in that matchup. It's going to be hard to trust him after what we saw last week, but this is a fantastic matchup for him. Mayfield can be viewed as a mid-range QB2 that can be plugged into your lineup in a pinch.
