Buccaneers will start QB Baker Mayfield Week 1

The #Bucs are going with Baker Mayfield as their starting QB, coach Todd Bowles announced.

The former No. 1 overall pick, Mayfield beat out Kyle Trask for the right to succeed Tom Brady and will start the Sept. 10 opener at Minnesota.

Fantasy Impact: 

Mayfield's stock should rise - a little - with the news he's the starter, but it's tough to see him passing too many QBs at the bottom of our rankings leading up to Week 1. For now, Mayfield is more of a QB3 or bottom end QB2 until we see more. However, he certainly has some quality WRs to throw to in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. All three players will need one another in order to provide fantasy managers with the points they need. Also for now, Godwin and Evans are ranked as lower-end WR3s on our list.
