  Browns | No discipline for Baker Mayfield    Mon Dec 9, 10:26 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield was critical of the training staff concerning the injury to WR Odell Beckham Jr. and how it has been handled. Head coach Freddie Kitchens addressed the situation with his quarterback. 'We don't want him addressing other players' injuries, in that manner especially,' Kitchens said Monday, Dec. 9. 'It's been addressed and (Mayfield) understands how to handle things like that moving forward.'

Footballguys view: Mayfield was speaking his truth when talking about the mishandling of Beckham's injury...and the team didn't like that. We love the refreshing honesty that Mayfield gives the media from time to time but we doubt we'll hear any more about a teammate's injury going forward.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield throws for 196 yards    Sun Dec 1, 04:18 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (thumb, hand) completed 18-of-32 passes for 196 yards, one touchdown and one interception with a lost fumble in Week 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He suffered an apparent right thumb or hand injury at the end of the first half and returned after halftime wearing a glove on his throwing hand.

Footballguys view: Mayfield and Browns offense was thwarted by halftime adjustments made by Mike Tomlin to the defense. He'll face a Bengals defense that came alive against the Jets today and is only a low-end QB2/Superflex.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield received praise from WR Odell Beckham Jr. Wednesday, Nov. 27, for his character and leadership at the helm of the team. 'We all know what he's capable of so it was only a matter of time and adversity is a big test of character and he's going to stand tall every single time,' Beckham said.

  Browns | Solid afternoon for Baker Mayfield    Sun Nov 24, 06:06 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 24-of-34 passes for 327 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

Footballguys view: Everyone's offense gets well against Miami. Philadelphia and Carson Wentz test that theory next week. Mayfield gets a tough Steelers defense next week on the road, but his value is revived for late season games against Cincinnati and Arizona in Weeks 14 and 15.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield accounts for three TDs    Fri Nov 15, 01:42 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 17 of his 32 passes for 193 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in a Week 11 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Mayfield also ran for a one-yard touchdown.

Footballguys view: Mayfield had a few good downfield throws, but this game was about how bad the Steelers offense is with Mason Rudolph, not how well Mayfield performed against a tough Steelers defense. He'll still be streamable in Week 12 at Miami to cover Patrick Mahomes bye week.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 26-of-38 passes for 238 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 10 against the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: Mayfield got the ship righted against the Bills mostly by targeting Jarvis Landry and Kareem Hunt gave him another reliable short range option. He'll face a tough Steelers defense on Thursday night.

Footballguys view: Mayfield got banged up in this one and cooled down after a hot start. He's only a matchup streamer at best heading into his bye and not an essential hold in short bench leagues.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield expected to be fine    Wed Oct 9, 11:22 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (leg, shoulder) had his leg and shoulder wrapped after the Week 5 game against the Sean Francisco 49ers according to reports. However, head coach Freddie Kitchens doesn't expect the issues to linger. 'I am sure he was bumped and bruised,' Kitchens said Wednesday, Oct. 9. 'He got hit more than I would like him to get him, but he will be fine.'

Footballguys view: Mayfield is fine physically but we're worried about him 'seeing ghosts' on the football field. The pressure is getting to him and his decision making is not on point in 2019. We'll see if the Browns can better protect him and we'll see if Mayfield starts making better throws going forward.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 20-of-30 passes for a season-best 342 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens. He was also sacked just once, a season low.

Footballguys view: Mayfield was much better in this one against a Ravens defense that has been on the ropes the last two weeks and didn't exactly shut down Kyler Murray in Week 2. Cleveland faces an underrated and rested San Francisco defense next week while the Ravens go to Pittsburgh. Mayfield is at least a streamer going forward after doing this while getting very little from Odell Beckham in this one.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield taking too many hits    Tue Sep 17, 08:30 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield is taking too many hits through the first two games of the season, according to head coach Freddie Kitchens Tuesday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: Expect the Browns to address this problem quickly. Look at guys like Andrew Luck or Cam Newton to see what happens when you allow your quarterback to continue to get hit often. Kitchens said he needs to put Mayfield in position to get the ball out of his hand quicker. In two games, Mayfield has an average time before pass of 3.17 seconds. The league average so far this year is 2.76 seconds time before pass.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (hand) 'looked good' throwing the ball Tuesday, Sept. 10, according to head coach Freddie Kitchens.

Footballguys view: Mayfield didn't look the same on Sunday against the Titans, especially after he injured his hand. We'll see if he can look better this week. It seems like this hand injury is minor and Mayfield should be a full participant in practice all week.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield unlikely to miss time    Mon Sep 9, 04:59 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (wrist) should not miss any practice time after the X-rays on his wrist were negative, according to head coach Freddie Kitchens.

Footballguys view: That's good news for the Browns. Now, they need to protect him better and start playing up to the hype that surrounding this team before the Titans curb-stomped them on Sunday. Mayfield was under duress for most of that game, and the Browns O-line was dominated by the Titans up front. That needs to change in a hurry if it can.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield was likened to former NFL QB Brett Favre, by Favre himself. 'There's no question that the sky is the limit for Baker,' Favre said. 'And, yeah, I think his style of play, and I've heard the same thing about (Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick) Mahomes, and I agree with both, that their styles of play - if you had to pick a former player - would certainly match up to my style.' Favre complimented Mayfield's demeanor and improvisation in particular.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield needs 42 touchdown passes in 2019 to break Dan Marino's record of 68 over a player's first two seasons.

Footballguys view: Mayfield certainly has the weapons around him in the passing game to throw a lot of touchdowns in 2019...but we're not projecting him for 42 touchdown passes this season. We could see Mayfield throwing 32 touchdowns in 2019 after tossing 27 touchdown passes as a rookie in 2018.

  Browns | Second-place finish motivating Baker Mayfield    Thu Feb 7, 12:20 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield said he will use his narrow, second-place finish in the NF Offensive Rookie of the Year voting as motivation this offseason. Mayfield finished five votes behind winner Saquon Barkley. 'Yeah, I'll use it as motivation,'' Mayfield said Wednesday, Feb. 6, via Cleveland.com. 'But the more important thing is winning football games. Yeah, it's more frustrating than anything because Saquon, that's my guy and he'll hold it over my head forever. But you know what, I'll use that as motivation and I'll be better in the long run.'

Footballguys view: Mayfield has constantly been doubted throughout his football career. He was the no.1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft and showed signs of a franchise quarterback. Mayfield plays with a chip on his shoulder and this 'slight' will only add to that chip.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield said he believes in head coach Freddie Kitchens and is excited to have offensive continuity. 'We had something special and I want to build on it,' Mayfield said.

Footballguys view: Good for the Browns for giving this duo a chance to continue what they started last year. Mayfield should at worst be a streamer's delight next season and he's being selected as a low QB1/high QB2 in early drafts.
