Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed just 12-of-22 passes for 204 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions with six runs for nine yards in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He also fumbled twice with one lost.

Footballguys view: That's just how the Browns like it. They leaned on the defense and running game and Mayfield got the offense off to a viable start with a strong first drive. He a bottom of the barrel fantasy option, even in 2QB/Superflex leagues, but Mayfield could be starting his first playoff game in January. He'll face the Jaguars next week.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield feeling better    Thu Nov 12, 02:15 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (rib) indicated it was 'amazing' what a week off did for him as he recovers from a cracked rib, according to the Akron Beacon Journal's Nate Ulrich.

Footballguys view: Rib injuries are all about pain tolerance. It did Mayfield good to have some time off. The Browns get RB Nick Chubb back this week and should lean on his ability. That makes Mayfield a low-end QB2 from a fantasy perspective.

  Browns | QB guarantees better chemistry with OBJ    Mon Aug 24, 03:39 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield believes he is 'on the same page' with Odell Beckham Jr. and that both players are 'in a better state' after the team dealt with a lot of adversity last season.'(Our chemistry) is sure ... going to be a lot better than last year. We're just on the same page, things we talked about. There was a lot going on within the building last year. We're not going to get into that, but we're both in a better state. He's healthy; surgery was successful, thank God. He's feeling great. He's in a great state of mind,' Mayfield told NFL Media.

Footballguys view: Better chemistry will come with better protection...at least that's what the Browns are banking on and that's why they went out and spent resources to improve the guys blocking for Mayfield up front.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield feeling rejuvenated    Fri Aug 14, 02:54 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield said Friday, Aug. 14, he 'lost myself' in 2019 and started doubting himself after a couple of sub-par performances. Mayfield, though, said Friday that's in the past. 'In a much better state, mentally, physically. Just ready to roll,' Mayfield told reporters at training camp. 'Back to where I need to be to be the leader.'

Footballguys view: Mayfield will be in a much more tightly structured offense that should set him up with deep play action passes to create success to build on. His fantasy prospects aren't bright, but this year should get his career back on track.

  Browns | Austin Hooper put in work with Baker Mayfield    Wed Aug 5, 04:20 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Austin Hooper lived part of the summer with QB Baker Mayfield while the two worked out together.

Footballguys view: Hooper was the big free agent tight end this year and the Browns were able to secure his services. The Browns spent a lot of resources this offseason to improve their offense and hopefully that leads to better numbers from Mayfield as he suffered through a sophomore slump in 2019.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield struggled on deep passes    Fri Jun 26, 02:21 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield threw seven interceptions on throws that traveled at least 20 yards during the 2019 season.

Footballguys view: Mayfield was usually under great duress if a play took too long to develop. The team put better protection in front of him this year and that should calm things down when the QB has to go deep. Will see if that helps him improve the numbers in this area in 2020.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield working on footwork    Thu Jun 4, 06:17 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield has been streamlining his footwork this offseason over virtual calls, according to offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt. Van Pelt said he wants his quarterbacks using West Coast footwork, and he has gotten Mayfield to remove a giant stagger step from his dropbacks.

Footballguys view: Mayfield is getting a fresh start in 2020 after a disappointing 2019 season. The new staff, new protection, new weapons and improved footwork should help Mayfield play better this season.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield buys into Kevin Stefanski's ways    Mon Jun 1, 12:52 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield has been buying into the ways of new head coach Kevin Stefanski. The third-year quarterback has been 'moving in silence,' which is a dramatic change for the normally outspoken Mayfield.

Footballguys view: This is good news for the Browns and Fantasy GMs if it leads to better play. He was asked to tone down his rhetoric by Stefanski, and Mayfield has taken it to heart, which some around the team view as a sign of improving maturity. This new system, better protection in front of him and more weapons around him could lead Mayfield to outplay his current ADP of QB14 (10.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield working on footwork    Wed May 27, 07:31 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield said he has been working on a change to his footwork that offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt asked him to try out. He said he is getting more comfortable with the new footwork.

Footballguys view: Mayfield had a disappointing sophomore season in 2019. The Browns have built a better offensive line around him and he's got upgraded weapons in the passing game. That should help him have a bounce-back season (along with improved footwork) in 2020.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 16 of his 20 pass attempts for 285 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions on designed rollouts in 2019.

Footballguys view: This sounds like the Browns should get Mayfield on more designed rollouts in 2020. The team worked diligently to improve the blocking in front of him and we could see Mayfield as a bounce-back player in 2020 because of that.

  Browns | Receivers didn't always help Baker Mayfield    Thu May 14, 11:38 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield lost 294 yards due to receiver error on accurate throws last season. The mark was the 11th-highest in the league for a quarterback.

Footballguys view: Mayfield didn't impress last year in his second season. Things are looking better for him this year. Not only did the Browns add more weapons in the passing game, like TE Austin Hooper, but they also emphasized getting the O-Line in better shape. Better protection and better weapons could help Mayfield get back on track in 2020.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield is leading workouts with several teammates in his hometown of Austin, Texas. TE David Njoku and WRs Rashard Higgins and Damion Ratley have been among those present.

Footballguys view: Mayfield is set for a bounce-back season in 2020. Things went off track for Mayfield last year in his second season. To get out of that sophomore slump, the Browns added more weapons in free agency and the draft. They also beefed up their offensive line to better protect their young quarterback.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 66.8 percent of his passes in between one and 20 yards in 2019 - the lowest such mark in the league.

Footballguys view: Mayfield had an off season, some would say a sophomore slump, but he is ready to bounce back in 2020. The Browns have gone out of the way to get better help around him, especially up front on the offensive line. He's a QB2 with upside for Fantasy GMs this season.

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield had a league-high 20 passes batted down at or behind the line of scrimmage in 2019.

Footballguys view: Mayfield is short and that means his passes have a better chance of getting batted. He needs to lower that number in 2020 and the team needs to help him by designing plays that give him more wide open passing lanes.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield to tweak footwork    Wed Feb 19, 11:32 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield will work on his footwork with offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt. The veteran coach said he's going to have Mayfield put his left foot up (last year, had his right foot up) in the shotgun. Van Pelt thinks that will help Mayfield be more fluid in three-step drop out of the gun.

Footballguys view: Browns fans are wondering what is wrong with Mayfield, and perhaps this change in footwork will help him play better in 2020. In two seasons, Mayfield has been a low-end QB2 for Fantasy GMs. That's about where he should rank heading into the new season.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield dismayed by turnovers    Fri Jan 31, 01:17 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield talked about his personal disappointment with his 2019 season Friday, Jan. 31, including his 23 total turnovers (21 interceptions and two lost fumbles). 'I've never turned the ball over so many times,' Mayfield said. 'You can't win like that. That falls back on me.'

Footballguys view: Lots of eyes will be on Mayfield with his new coaching staff, and if he doesn't improve in 2020, it will be reasonable to ask if he's the Browns quarterback of the future. He's the saying the right things about his down second season.
