Player Outlook

For Fantasy purposes Baker Mayfield is a No. 2 quarterback best rostered in Dynasty leagues or leagues where you can start more than one quarterback. Mayfield's efficiency rebounded in his first year under Kevin Stefanski, but Stefanski's run-heavy scheme severely limits a pocket passer's upside. Mayfield threw 30 or fewer passes in 10 of 16 games and only topped 300 yards passing twice in 2020. It's possible he could be your best bet as a backup, but only if the schedule lines him up for a shootout in your starter's bye week.

Player News
  • Mayfield reiterated Wednesday that he's "not worried at all" about a contract extension, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. A strong finish to his third NFL season has Mayfield in position to ask for an extension, though he's under contract through 2022 after the Browns exercised a fifth-year option in April. The 26-year-old quarterback might even be more inclined to wait until next offseason for a new contract, thus betting on himself to have a big 2021 campaign as the frontman for a talented team. The Browns return all 11 starters on offense from last season, with wideout Odell Beckham (knee) seemingly on track for Week 1 at Kansas City.

  • The Browns exercised Mayfield's fifth-year option worth $18.86 million for the 2022 season Friday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. It's not much of a surprise to see Cleveland pick up the option for the 26-year-old, which the team also did for teammate Denzel Ward. Mayfield helped the Browns secure their first playoff victory in 26 years last season after completing 63 percent of his passes for 3,563 yards, 26 touchdowns and eight interceptions while also rushing for 165 yards and one touchdown in 16 games. A long-term extension could be next now that his status is secured for the next two years.

  • Mayfield completed 23 of 37 passes for 204 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 22-17 loss to the Chiefs in the AFC divisional round. He added 11 yards on three rushing attempts. Mayfield failed to lead the offense into the end zone in the first half, then threw an interception on the first possession after halftime. He bounced back with a four-yard touchdown pass to Jarvis Landry to cut Kansas City's lead to 19-10, then led another touchdown drive early in the fourth to make it a one-possession game. The Browns got the ball again down five in the fourth quarter but produced just 12 yards over seven plays, and the Chiefs were able to run out the clock after Cleveland punted. Mayfield went through a sophomore slump after a promising rookie season, but he bounced back with the best season of his young career this year, throwing a career-low eight interceptions and, more importantly, notching the first Browns playoff win in 26 years. His yardage totals will likely remain modest moving forward in Cleveland's run-first offense, but Baker has eliminated any doubts about whether he can be the guy to lead the team under center.

  • Mayfield completed 21 of 34 pass attempts for 263 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions during Sunday's 48-37 wild-card win against the Steelers. Cleveland entered Sunday night without a playoff win since Jan. 1, 1995 -- three and a half months before Mayfield was born. Having led the Browns to their best win total since that same 1994-1995 campaign, Mayfield entered the postseason with just one interception committed over his past nine starts. Boosted by a pair of takeaways and a TD from his defense within the first five minutes of regulation, Mayfield found Jarvis Landry for a 40-yard third-down score on the Browns' opening offensive drive. The explosive start continued from there, as Cleveland set an NFL playoff record for the most first-half points by a road team with 35. Pittsburgh fought its way back into the game with a 13-0 third-quarter run, but Mayfield led the Browns on a trio of scoring drives in the fourth quarter to secure his first career playoff victory. Next is a road trip to take on the reigning Super Bowl champion Chiefs and a Kansas City defense that contained opponents to 224.2 passing yards per game over its final five outings of the regular season.

  • Mayfield completed of 17 of 27 pass attempts for 196 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Browns' Week 17 victory over the Steelers. He added six rushes for 44 yards on the ground. With the victory, Mayfield led the Browns to their first playoff appearance since 2002. Playing with the lead for most of the game, Mayfield took to the air only 27 times and connected with his receivers mostly in the short areas of the field. However, he did manage a few big plays, including a 42-yard completion to Rashard Higgins. Mayfield also made a few key plays with his legs, including a 25-yard scramble and game-clinching three-yard run on a designed play. After throwing seven interceptions in the team's first seven games, Mayfield has thrown only one pick in his last nine starts. He'll now look to lead the team to their first playoff victory since rejoining the league in 1999.
