2019 NFL Draft Guide Player Profile: Baker Mayfield
Colby Conway takes an in-depth look at Baker Mayfield to let fantasy football owners know what to expect from the Browns quarterback during the 2019 NFL season.
It was a pretty productive rookie campaign for Baker Mayfield . He started 13 games and posted a 6-7 record in those games. He threw for 3,725 yards with 27 touchdowns, 14 interceptions and a 63.8 completion percentage. He led three fourth quarter comebacks last season and reinvigorated hope in Cleveland football. The Cleveland Browns are no longer the consensus opponent for the hypothetical matchup against the Alabama Crimson Tide. Out in Las Vegas, money is coming in hot and heavy on the Browns and that is because of the young quarterback giving the Browns a chance to win more often than not.
There’s a lot of talent on the defense, but don’t rule out some shootouts for the Browns this season, to which Mayfield is no stranger. Remember his college days? Mayfield is playing with a loaded offense, but what he did towards the end of the 2018 season, as well as a key offseason transaction, has fantasy owners salivating at the chance to take the polarizing young quarterback.
