What is Baker Mayfield’s fantasy football status, DFS price for Week 11?

Mayfield had a solid performance in Week 11 against the Bills. He threw for 238 yards and two touchdowns to finish with 17.62 DKFP.

Mayfield had a solid if unspectacular performance in Week 9. He threw for 273 yards and one touchdown to finish with 17.12 DKFP. He added 22 rushing yards and avoided any turnovers, which is certainly a plus. The Browns face a tough Bills defense in Week 10, and his price has dropped $100 to $5,000.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield continues to scuffle along. He had a tough matchup in Week 8, traveling to face the New England Patriots. He finished the game with 194 passing yards with one touchdown and one interception, along with an 18-yard run to finish with 12.56 DKFP.

The Browns travel to face the Denver Broncos in Week 9. His salary increased $100 to $5,100 for the matchup. Although Denver is struggling, they rank third against opposing quarterbacks in giving up DK fantasy points. This is not a good matchup in which to enlist the services of Mayfield.

The Browns return to action following their Week 7 bye, and Baker Mayfield’s up-and-down season continues unabated. In Week 6, he had his highest scoring DraftKings performance with 22.46 DKFP, but he also threw three interceptions and his day was saved by a rushing touchdown.

Cleveland travels to face a dominant Patriots defense, so it’s no surprise Mayfield’s price dropped $500 to $5,000. The Patriots mauled Sam Darnold this past Monday, and they could create serious problems for Mayfield in Week 8.

Might Baker Mayfield finally be set to turn things around from a fantasy perspective? It’s been an inconsistent season for the Browns quarterback, but he put together his best DFS performance of the season in Week 6. He finished with 22.46 DKFP thanks to a big game on the ground. He rushed for 35 yards and a touchdown, which more than made up for his three interceptions. Mayfield had 249 yards and a touchdown throwing.

Considering Mayfield had the second best rushing performance of his career and also had his first career rushing touchdown, maybe we shouldn’t get too excited yet. The Browns head into their bye week, giving Mayfield a chance to reset and try to get on track. Coming out of the bye, they travel to New England and Denver, and then host Buffalo. It could be an ugly stretch.

It was not a pretty Week 5 performance for Baker Mayfield. The 49ers made his life miserable, keeping him on the run when he wasn’t busy getting sacked. He finished the game completing 36.4 percent of his passes for 100 yards with two interceptions and a lost fumble. It was good for one DKFP. Well done, Baker.

The Browns host the Seahawks in Week 6 and Mayfield’s salary dropped $300 to $5,500. The Seahawks defense has been inconsistent, and this could be a prime bounce-back opportunity for Mayfield. More importantly, his struggles likely mean fewer people will want to invest in him. He could be a great buy-low candidate in Week 6.

What is Baker Mayfield’s fantasy football status, DFS price for Week 5?

It’s been quite the up-and-down season for Mayfield. Week 4 saw him throw for 342 yards, with one touchdown and one interception against the Baltimore Ravens. Nick Chubb was the difference-maker however, as Mayfield struggles to get fully on track. He has not thrown more than one touchdown in a game, and he’s had at least one interception in all four games this season.

Mayfield and the Browns face Jimmy Garoppolo and the 49ers on Monday Night Football in Week 5. It’s a Showdown contest, so we don’t have his price yet. That being said, the 49ers defense is among the best in the league through their first three games, and it’s hard to justify rolling Mayfield out there at this point.

What is Baker Mayfield’s fantasy football status, DFS price for Week 4?

The Browns lost a tough one to the surging Rams, and Baker Mayfield had another tough outing. He completed 50 percent of his passes for 195 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He finished with 10.70 DKFP, which is 26th among all quarterbacks through Sunday.

Things don’t get any easier for Mayfield and the Browns as they have to travel to face the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4. Mayfield’s DK price now sits at $5,800 after opening the season at $6,400. His completion percentage has gone down each week, and he has yet to put together a positive QB/INT ratio. He’s not a guy you can trust for the time being.

What is Baker Mayfield’s fantasy football status, DFS price for Week 3?

The Browns bounced back in Week 2 with a much-needed win over the New York Jets on Monday Night Football. The Jets stink, but Mayfield was still a key cog in the victory. He threw for 325 yards, one touchdown and one interception, finishing the game with 19 DKFP. He had no rushes for the second straight week, and while he’s never been a huge scrambler, it would be nice to get a couple free points here and there.

The Browns host the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Night Football in Week 3. His Showdown price stands at $15,300, $600 short of Jared Goff’s price. The Rams shut down Drew Brees and Teddy Bridgewater last week, and Cam Newton in Week 1. The start/sit decision for this Showdown matchup comes down to what you think the Browns offense can do against a strong Rams defense. We’d lean sit.

The Browns found themselves stunned in an ugly Week 1 upset at the hands of the Tennessee Titans. Baker Mayfield got plenty of passing opportunities in the 43-13 loss, but he struggled to the tune of three interceptions. He had 285 passing yards and a touchdown, but it was an ugly day overall and not what Browns backers were expecting.

Cleveland now heads to the Meadowlands to face the New York Jets on Monday Night Football. It’s a Showdown contest, so Mayfield’s price sits at $16,800. The Jets secondary is a mess and they will be without linebacker C.J. Mosley and defensive tackle Quinnen Williams. This is a prime bounce-back opportunity for Mayfield.

Baker Mayfield 2019 fantasy football preview

The Cleveland Browns enter the 2019 season as a trendy pick to make the playoffs, and potentially get to the Super Bowl. The offseason addition of Odell Beckham is big news, but it was the 2018 emergence of rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield that got people excited about the Browns. The franchise that has been looking for a franchise quarterback for decades now might finally have that guy.

Mayfield finished his rookie season with 3,725 passing yards, 27 touchdowns and 14 interceptions, and 131 rushing yards. He ranked 16th in fantasy points among all quarterbacks, and that came with a wide receiver corps topped by Jarvis Landry and “featuring” Antonio Callaway and Rashad Higgins. Not exactly an elite trio.

The Browns made a huge splash in the offseason, acquiring Beckham in a trade with the New York Giants. He is a monster upgrade to the pass catching group, and instantly upgrades Mayfield. There will be concerns about a sophomore slump, but most everybody is hopping on the Browns bandwagon.

Mayfield enters Week 1 with a $6,400 salary at DraftKings. He ranks fourth among all quarterbacks, behind Pat Mahomes, Jameis Winston, and Cam Newton. He faces a Tennessee Titans defense that ranked 21st against the pass last season. The Titans added veteran edge rusher Cameron Wake and spent a first round pick on defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons, but the latter might redshirt this season. It’s not enough improvement, which opens the door to a strong debut for the Mayfield-Beckham connection.
