Draft note
by John Paulsen
Mayfield quarterbacks a run-oriented team and doesn’t offer much as a runner himself, so it takes an out-of-the-ordinary passing effort to post a big game. He played all 16 games last year and finished as the No. 17 quarterback with the No. 22 per game average. He did post pretty good numbers down the stretch–286 yards, 1.8 touchdowns, 20.4 points per game from Week 12 to Week 17–which perhaps bodes well for his second season in Kevin Stefanski’s offense. He will also get Odell Beckham back from injury, which should help despite the narrative that Mayfield is better without Beckham on the field.

CLE QB Baker Mayfield - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Texans

Mayfield is coming off a disappointing fantasy performance in a shootout against the Chiefs, finishing as QB27 after failing to score a touchdown. The good news is that he actually played really well, completing 21-of-28 passes for 321 yards (11.5 Y/A). His only blemish being the one interception. Mayfield's lack of touchdowns contributed to his poor fantasy output against the Chiefs.

He's now in a great spot against a Texans defense that ranked 24th in aFPA to quarterbacks last season. While this defense limited Trevor Lawrence to a 54.9% completion rate with 6.5 yards per attempt and three interceptions, they still project to be among the worst in the NFL. The risk with Mayfield here is that the Browns are 12.5-point favorites, so this projects as a run-heavy game-script, limiting the passing volume if the game gets out of hand. Still, Mayfield should be able to put together an efficient game, giving him streamer appeal in this one.
