Of course, this is provided they continue to test negative for COVID-19 this week, the tweet said. Without their WRs, the Browns ran the ball just 15 times with their stud backs and lost to the one-win Jets. It will be a tough matchup in Week 17 against the Steelers.
CLE QB Baker Mayfield - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Baker Mayfield's streak of hot play came crashing back to earth in Week 16 where he was deprived of essentially his entire wide receiver room due to COVID protocols and only managed 285 scoreless yards on a career-high 53 pass attempts. The fact that Mayfield was missing all of his top weapons needs to be considered when evaluating his stat line from Week 16. Now the Browns will host the Steelers in a critical divisional showdown that could determine Cleveland's playoff fate. Mayfield should have his receivers back this week, but Pittsburgh is a tough matchup for opposing passers. While Mayfield should improve on last week's performance, he is a risky option in fantasy given the matchup and his struggles when facing pressure.
