What to do with Baker Mayfield in Week 15 of the fantasy football playoffs

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Baker Mayfield ahead of the Browns Week 15 matchup against the Giants on Sunday Night Football.

After some ups and downs this season, Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield is on a roll. Last week in a thriller against the Ravens, he had a season-high 343 passing yards, with two touchdown throws, one interception, and another score on the ground. He’ll be a decent fantasy option this week against the Giants.

Fantasy Football analysis: Browns QB Baker Mayfield

The week before this last one, Mayfield had his first 300+ yard game of the season, throwing four touchdowns against the Titans in that one. Overall, he has eight passing touchdowns in his last three games now. Not bad for a run-first team.

The Giants are not an easy draw for opposing quarterbacks. They haven’t allowed a signal caller to throw multiple scores since Week 8, that includes Russell Wilson. And while his numbers could take a dip this week, Mayfield is still a decent streaming option. He’s not a bad roster stash either, given that he’ll face the Jets next week in what’s likely the fantasy championship round in a lot of leagues.
