Browns' Baker Mayfield: Comeback bid fails against Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Throws three TDs in wild-card win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Leads Browns into playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Facing softer Steleers D in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield and the Browns should benefit from a Week 17 matchup with a Pittsburgh defense that is expected to be without its top two pass rushers in T.J. Watt or Cameron Heyward, who are both expected to sit out for rest puposes, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Mayfield and a beat-up offensive line will get a break in the expected absences of Watt, a three-time Pro Bowl outside linebacker, and Heyward, a four-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman. With Pittsburgh locked in as the AFC's No. 2 or 3 seed, head coach Mike Tomlin could choose to rest or limit other starters on defense, making what would have been a tough matchup on paper much softer for the Browns. Additionally, Cleveland activated Mayfield's top four wideouts from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, so the quarterback will have Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge at his disposal after the quartet sat out last week's loss to the Jets.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Fumbles away chance to clinch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield completed 28 of 53 passes for 285 yards without a touchdown or interception in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Jets. He added three carries for six yards and fumbled three times, losing two.

Working without his top four wide receivers, Mayfield threw just two of his 24 first-half passes to the position, finishing the half with 124 yards, a fumble and a 13-3 deficit. He moved the offense better in the second half but failed to throw a touchdown after posting a 10:1 TD:INT over the previous four games. Mayfield fumbled two more times in the fourth quarter, and while the last one was recovered by teammate Kareem Hunt, that play resulted in a turnover on downs to snuff out Cleveland's comeback hopes in the final minutes. Assuming top two wide receivers Jarvis Landry and Rashard Higgins are able to come off the reserve/COVID-19 list in time for the Browns' Week 17 matchup with the Steelers, Mayfield should have more weapons to work with as he tries to nail down his first career playoff berth.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Won't have usual receiving corps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield will be without his top four wide receivers Sunday against the Jets after the Browns placed Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge on the reserve/COVID-19 list

All four players were deemed to be high-risk close contacts, leaving Marvin Hall and practice-squad callups Ja'Marcus Bradley and Derrick Willies as the Browns' available wide receivers. With such a depleted receiving corps, that may just mean more targets for the likes of Austin Hooper, Kareem Hunt and even Nick Chubb. In any case, Mayfield seems poised to dink and dunk and unlikely to take many deep shots Sunday.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Nearly perfect in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield completed 27 of 32 pass attempts for 297 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 20-6 victory over the Giants.

Mayfield was nearly flawless under the bright lights, missing only six passes and committing zero turnovers. The 25-year-old has been playing out of his mind recently, accounting for nine touchdowns (including one as a rusher) while throwing just one interception and averaging over 300 yards per game over the last four weeks. Those are top-10 fantasy quarterback numbers, and fantasy managers may have to treat the third-year signal caller as such until he cools off. Next week's opponent, the New York Jets, don't pose a huge threat to Mayfield's hot streak, even though the team just picked up its first victory of the season Sunday.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Climbs QB ratings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield's 96.6 quarterback rating ranks 12th in the NFL, 10 spots higher than where he was two weeks ago, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Mayfield cites the Browns' Week 9 bye as the turning point in his season. After eight weeks, Mayfield had a 90.9 rating, but in the five games since the break, he's averaged a 105.0 rating (113.5 the last three games). "It was conversations that we had to be able to kind of evaluate where we were as an offense, what we were doing well and what we were not doing well,'' Mayfield said. Coach Kevin Stefanski said they discussed ways to restore the quarterback's confidence. Additionally, Stefanski and offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt implemented plays designed to bring the "Oklahoma Baker" back, such as more play-action, keepers and shotgun formations. Mayfield looks to keep his second-half momentum rolling Week 15 in New York against the Giants' 17th-ranked pass defense, who will be without top cornerback James Bradberry (reserve/COVID-19).

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Delivers three touchdowns Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield completed 28 of 47 passes for 343 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Monday night's 47-42 loss to the Ravens. He also rushed five times for 23 yards and another score.

Mayfield relied on his running game early on, with tailback Nick Chubb scoring twice before halftime. Then, after throwing what seemed to be a back-breaking interception toward the end of the third quarter, Mayfield immediately elevated his game, responding with a 12-play, 75-yard drive that ended with him throwing a 21-yard touchdown to Rashard Higgins on fourth down. Mayfield then ran in from five yards on third-and-goal to cap the subsequent drive, before finding Kareem Hunt for a game-tying, 22-yard touchdown with just over a minute remaining on his next one. Although that still wasn't enough to secure the win, Mayfield was tremendous in the second half, racking up a season high in passing yards while posting his second straight game with three total touchdowns. That puts the signal-caller in great form ahead of Week 15's matchup against the Giants.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Racks up four touchdowns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield completed 25 of 33 passes for 334 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 13 against the Titans.

Mayfield led the Browns to a touchdown on five of their first six offensive possessions, capping four of them with a touchdown toss. The most explosive of the scores was a 75-yard connection with Donovan Peoples-Jones deep down the right sideline, though he also found Jarvis Landry and Rashard Higgins for two and 17- yard touchdowns, respectively. Also important has been Mayfield's ability to avoid mistakes, as he has now gone five consecutive games and 156 pass attempts without throwing an interception. He'll look to keep his positive play going in Week 14 in a tough matchup against the Ravens.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Avoiding picks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield has thrown 123 consecutive passes without an interception, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Mayfield has taken heat for missed throws this season, including in last week's win over the Jaguars, but the third-year quarterback has avoided turnovers in the last four games. Cleveland's success this season is largely attributable to its ground game, which means Mayfield isn't required to take chances down the field. That approach has not only limited picks, but it also led to Mayfield averaging fewer than 200 passing yards per game (191.6).

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Capitalizes on positive matchup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield completed 19 of 29 pass attempts for 258 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 12 against the Jaguars.

Mayfield experienced an unexpected spike in volume, recording his highest pass-attempt total since Week 5. He was also efficient, as he averaged 8.9 yards per attempt to surpass 250 yards for only the second time on the campaign. Mayfield showed particular rapport with Jarvis Landry, connecting for three plays of 20 or more yards as well as a five-yard first-quarter touchdown. He'll likely be required to move the Browns offense efficiently again to keep pace with the Titans in Week 13.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Lackluster production vs. Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield completed 12 of 22 pass attempts for 204 yards and carried six times for nine yards during Sunday's 22-17 win over the Eagles.

Mayfield averaged a healthy 9.3 yards per attempt but took a backseat to the run game for much of the day due to more bad weather in Cleveland. This lackluster passing output was actually his highest in three games after he averaged just 127 yards over his previous two, giving a clear picture of the state of the Browns offense at this point. However, Mayfield has led his team to a 7-3 record with three wins in the last four games. He will enjoy a favorable matchup against the Jaguars next Sunday, but Cleveland figures to continue with its run-heavy approach against an inferior opponent.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Challenges entering Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield and the Browns face several challenges in preparation for Week 11 against the Eagles, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Mayfield hasn't been pressured much the last two games, but the 11th-ranked Eagles defense is third in the NFL with 31 sacks, five behind the league-leading Steelers, who sacked Mayfield four times in a 38-7 loss Week 6. Additionally, Mayfield hasn't fared well against pressure in 2020. Per Pro Football Focus, he ranks 38th with a 30.8 rating against pressure. Part of the problem is Mayfield holds the ball too long and spends too much time in the pocket. He's 38th in the NFL in average time to throw (2.83 seconds) and pocket time (3.01). One more challenge for the Browns' quarterback is starting right tackle Jack Conklin being placed on the reserved/COVID-19 list. The obvious workaround for the Browns, who rank fourth in rushing, is putting the ball in the hands of running backs Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt against Philadelphia's 26th-ranked run defense.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Quiet in low-scoring win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield completed 12 of 20 passes for 132 yards and rushed three times for one yard in Sunday's 10-7 win over the Texans.

Mayfield served as a game manager with Cleveland going run-heavy in Nick Chubb's (knee) first action since Week 4. Chubb and Kareem Hunt combined for 38 rushing attempts, and Chubb scored the team's lone touchdown on a windy, rainy day. With 132 or fewer passing yards in three of his last four games, Mayfield will be tough to trust against the visiting Eagles in Week 11.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Comes off COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns reinstated Mayfield from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Though he never actually tested positive for COVID-19 himself, Mayfield was placed on the list Sunday after he was deemed to be in close contact with an infected Browns staff member. Mayfield continued to test negative in each of the subsequent days, resulting in the Browns granting him clearance to resume team activities. Since he's now expected to be on the field Wednesday for the Browns' first Week 10 practice, Mayfield's ability to prepare for Sunday's game against the Texans shouldn't be affected.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Could be cleared by Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield (undisclosed) could be able to gain clearance from the reserve/COVID-19 list in time to practice Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Mayfield's placement on the COVID-19 list came as a result of being in close proximity with an infected staff member, rather than the result of testing positive himself, so it's possible that he could be back on the field for Wednesday's practice. Such a quick turnaround would of course require Mayfield to continue testing negative and remain asymptomatic, but it would be beneficial for the third-year quarterback to get in a normal three-day practice week ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Texans.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Joins COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns placed Mayfield on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday after he came into close contact with a staff member that tested positive for the coronavirus.

Fortunately for Mayfield and the Browns, the quarterback is currently COVID-19 negative, and his placement on the list comes during a bye week. Mayfield will immediately self-isolate, and assuming he continues to test negative, he could be cleared to rejoin the Browns for their first Week 10 practice Wednesday, per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. Case Keenum is the next man up at quarterback in the event Mayfield can't gain clearance prior to the Browns' next game Nov. 15 versus the Texans.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Shut down by Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield completed 12 of 25 pass attempts for 122 yards, adding six rushes for 29 yards during Sunday's 16-6 loss to Las Vegas.

Coming off a five-touchdown, 297-yard passing performance that earned Mayfield AFC Player of the Week honors last Sunday against the Bengals, his scoreless Week 8 effort against the Raiders' 31st-ranked scoring defense shows prevailing inconsistencies from the young signal-caller. The matchup was right for the 2018 No. 1 overall draft choice, but he was held under two touchdowns for the third time this season. As Mayfield goes, so does the Browns offense, as Cleveland has averaged 6.3 points per game in those three performances. Mayfield and the Browns now have a chance to reset over the bye before taking on Houston's porous defense Nov. 15.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: No longer on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield was absent from the Wednesday's injury report.

Mayfield was a daily entry on injury reports the last two weeks due to rib and chest injuries. The reigning AFC Offensive Player of the Week enters Week 8 healthy, as the Browns prepare to face a Las Vegas defense that ranks 26th overall and 28th against the pass.
