Mayfield completed 23 of his 42 pass attempts for 376 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Ravens. Mayfield had wide-ranging quality of play in the season's final game, throwing interceptions to both begin and end the game. In between, he found the end zone three times -- including 48 and 28-yard scores -- giving him the record for most passing touchdowns in a single-season by a rookie. That's all the more impressive when considering he didn't see the field until Week 3, with his first start coming in Week 4. Given his performance, there's no doubt that Mayfield will be the starting quarterback for the Browns in 2019, and he should be a viable fantasy option -- especially if the Browns add weapons to their offense.
Mayfield completed 27 of 37 pass attempts, racking up 284 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 26-18 win against the Bengals. The rookie quarterback added six rushes for 16 yards. Throughout this 2018 campaign, Mayfield continues to establish himself as the most NFL-ready rookie quarterback. He helped keep a perpetually tortured Browns franchise in the playoff mix through mid-December, while boasting an impressive 24:11 TD:INT ratio on the season. The Oklahoma standout has been deadly accurate of late, completing at least 73 percent of his passes in three of his past five outings, and averaging over 270 passing YPG while helping Cleveland win three straight games for the first time since 2014. Week 17 brings a prohibitive matchup against a Baltimore defense that's only allowed one quarterback to exceed 200 passing yards (Patrick Mahomes) over its past five outings.
Mayfield completed 18 of 31 passes for 188 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 17-16 win over the Broncos. He also lost a fumble. Though Mayfield threw for only 188 yards, he started the game off with a bang when he connected with Breshad Perriman for a 31-yard touchdown pass during Cleveland's first drive. The rookie gunslinger also threw a short touchdown pass to fellow rookie Antonio Callaway in the fourth quarter, giving the Browns the lead and ultimately the victory. He did, however, commit two turnovers and now has four interceptions in his past three games. Mayfield will look to keep his team's playoff hopes alive next Sunday against the Bengals.
Mayfield completed 18 of 22 passes for 238 yards and a touchdown while adding two yards on four carries in Sunday's 26-20 win over the Panthers. After Carolina marched down the field for a touchdown to open the contest, Mayfield responded by hitting Breshad Perriman for a 66-yard gain with his first throw. While that pass eventually set up a rushing score, Mayfield wouldn't be denied a touchdown of his own in the second quarter, when he uncorked a 51-yard deep ball to Jarvis Landry. The rookie quarterback has led Cleveland to three wins in the past four games, but maintaining that success won't be easy in Week 15 when Cleveland travels to Denver.
Mayfield completed 19 of 26 passes for 258 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's 35-20 win over the Bengals. Mayfield led his team to 28 first-half points with three touchdown passes, representing the franchise's highest first-half scoring total since 1991. Those three scores consisted of a 13-yarder to Antonio Callaway, a six-yarder to David Njoku and a 14-yarder to Nick Chubb. Mayfield added a six-yard touchdown to Darren Fells in the third quarter, snapping Cleveland's 25-game road losing streak in emphatic fashion. The first overall selection from the 2018 draft is living up to the hype, and he'll look to keep rolling against Houston in Week 13.
