Draft note
by John Paulsen
Mayfield’s splits with Freddie Kitchens calling the plays are very encouraging for 2019, now that Kitchens has been promoted to head coach. Mayfield averaged 19.0 PPG from Week 9 on, after Kitchens took over. He had the No. 10 per game average in that span, and the Browns added Odell Beckham, so consider Mayfield a midrange QB1.

CLE QB Baker Mayfield - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Baker Mayfield was thrown into a tough situation last season, but made the most of it and finished with a strong rookie campaign. Despite not playing in the first two games of the season, Mayfield set the rookie touchdown passing record (27). Most of his success came after the Browns made a switch to Freddie Kitchens. Mayfield threw 19 of his 27 touchdowns after the change. He averaged 16.5 fantasy points per game under Hue Jackson, and 23.25 fantasy points under Kitchens. The Browns hired Kitchens full-time this season while also adding Odell Beckham Jr. to the mix. Mayfield was already expected to take an extra step in his second season, and providing him an extra weapon in OBJ should make things a lot easier.

Fantasy Downside

While Mayfield set the record for passing touchdowns in a single season by a rookie, he also had some rookie struggles, turning the ball over 17 times in 13 games. He was tied for the third-most interceptions thrown last season (14), so that’s certainly an area he’ll need to improve in.

2019 Bottom Line

Mayfield’s success as a rookie combined with the addition of Beckham makes him an exciting prospect, but it’s also raised his value to a point where there’s a little risk involved. Patrick Mahomes is a good comparison because heading into 2018 there was a lot of hype surrounding him as well, but what made him an attractive draft pick is he was able to be selected in the late rounds. Mayfield is going early for production we assume he’s going to have. He should be a solid midrange QB1 choice, but he’s not going to have sleeper value.
