Browns' Baker Mayfield: Commits four turnovers in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield completed 21 of 41 pass attempts for 295 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions Sunday against the Raiders. He also carried four times for 10 yards and lost a pair of fumbles during the 45-42 overtime loss.

Mayfield's life as a starter in the NFL got off to an eventful beginning, with his fourth attempt of the game resulting in an interception that was returned for a touchdown. He led the offense effectively while completing touchdown passes to Darren Fells and Jarvis Landry, but three second-half turnovers allowed the home team to hang in the game and force overtime. Mayfield also struggled to connect with his receivers at times, completing just over half his pass attempts on the day. He should remain the starter next Sunday against the Ravens, but another sloppy showing against one of the league's better defensive units could have him on a short leash.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Officially named starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Hue Jackson officially announced Mayfield as the Browns' starting quarterback Monday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

It was only a matter of time until Jackson handed the No. 1 overall pick the keys to the offense, but Mayfield's impressive regular-season debut in last Thursday's comeback victory over the Jets gave the coach no choice than to do so as soon as possible. Considering Mayfield racked up an efficient 201 passing yards in just over two quarters of play last week, it may not be long until he becomes worthy of starting consideration in single-quarterback fantasy formats. In fact, Mayfield could make for an intriguing, high-upside fantasy play off the bat given Cleveland's Week 4 matchup with a Raiders defense that has surrendered 8.7 yards per pass attempt this season.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Looks good again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield completed nine of 16 passes for 138 yards during Thursday's preseason game in Detroit.

Mayfield played the entire first half and led the Browns to 17 points on five drives. He completed 35 of 61 passes (57.4 percent) for 501 yards (8.2 YPA) this preseason, with two touchdowns, an interception and 11 carries for 34 yards. Tyrod Taylor will get the Week 1 start, but Mayfield's solid work in August may leave the 29-year-old on a short leash.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: Set for preseason start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mayfield could play the entire first half of Thursday's preseason game against the Lions, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Coach Hue Jackson confirmed that Mayfield will get the start, with potential to continue playing through the end of the first half. Jackson recently said he's leaning toward Mayfield over Drew Stanton to open the season as the team's No. 2 QB behind starter Tyrod Taylor.

Browns' Baker Mayfield: On track to back up Taylor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Hue Jackson indicated Sunday that he's leaning toward having Mayfield serve as the Browns' No. 2 QB this season, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

It's no surprise that the rookie won't supplant Tyrod Taylor out of the gate, but Mayfield has evidently already overtaken veteran Drew Stanton. Taylor is currently dealing with a hand issue, but it's not expected to impact his regular-season availability. With no immediate path to regular-season playing time, Mayfield's early-season fantasy value is minimal, but he will profile as one of the league's highest-upside backups. In the meantime, he's in line to play some snaps in the Browns' preseason finale, but chances are, fellow signal-callers Drew Stanton and Brogan Roback will see the bulk of the work Thursday night against the Lions.
