No. 4 Baker Mayfield, QB, Cleveland Browns
I’m buying into Baker Mayfield mania. He looked awesome in his NFL debut leading the Cleveland Browns to their first win in a long time. Mayfield provided a spark while helping those around him look better.
He will have some bumps in the road, but he’s a dynamic playmaker who will take some chances. There are some solid weapons in this Browns offense that could start to pop with Mayfield in the lineup.
Jarvis Landry established a quick rhythm with Mayfield. He looks like he’ll be Mayfield’s safety blanket and go-to target.
However, someone like David Njoku could see more opportunities with Mayfield in the mix. Njoku is a big play waiting to happen and we know Mayfield will look to make a splash. Mayfield showed in his debut that he can make quick reads and the ball out in a hurry.
The Browns have a better chance to win games with Mayfield under center. Tyrod Taylor is a fine quarterback who takes care of the football. However, this is a team that needs some excitement and hope.
Mayfield is the future of the franchise and should be the starter moving forward. He is absolutely worth taking a flyer on in your fantasy league.
