crazy how far Baker Mayfield dropped...he's was the man last year before the draft. Everyone wanted him...now he's below Daniel Jones :twisted: . No Love?

If Stefanski adheres to his Minnesota philosophy, I think Baker would be in line for a "better" season that may not be super useful for fantasy based on volume.

The offense seems built for Nick Chubb, and they have a solid defense that should suppress Baker's upside a bit.

With that said, there's not a massive difference between QB17 or QB24 on these lists.

Lots of reasons to expect both a bounce back, but also it not leading to startable production in our game for Baker.

Here's one thread detailing why to expect a bounce back


Couple notes adding context to the INT's



But even if he has positive regression I think it's important to note what the Browns have done this offseason:

*Added a FB
*Replaced Demetrius Harris with Austin Hooper
*Added two new starting OT's - one in free agency, the other with pick #10 of the draft
*Then consider...



and



Tl;dr - expect more heavy sets with an emphasis on outside zone/toss and play action. It should be more efficient, but I'm skeptical of the volume and he doesn't run enough. If you're betting on the Mayfield this year then I think you need to bet on both all of the above happening and the Browns defense sucking enough to force the volume. Since his pricetag right now compares to Jones I can't imagine I'm buying.

And we don't know if we've seen Stefanski's offense yet or if we saw Zim/Kubiak influenced offense from Stefanski.

Hates gone too far on him. His height and lack of athleticism was always going to require a decent line (especially tackles) or at least a well developed screen game.

They botched the line last season, and have invested heavily into it this season. He’s a strong bounce-back candidate for 2020, but this improvement might not be seen in fantasy as they move to a more ground based attack

With Cam in NE now, I'd be very comfortable putting him in the 14-20 range.

I will be very surprised if he is available that late a month from now. But if he is then I'll start preparing accordingly.

Yeah I just plugged in some projections for him and I think that range is ambitious. Realistically, he should be viewed similarly to Josh Allen (my QB7)

Yes - what have you been drinking :lol:

Too many X factors with Cam to fairly grade him - need to see his health in the preseason. I might take a shot at him if I go QBBC and he is still a value pick and is declared the starter. I disagree with the sentiment that the Pats brought him in to be the #2 QB but I can also think there is validity to the scenario that they cut him before the start of the season if he doesn't fit in. That being said I think the coaching staff will bend over backwards to make the offense work around him.

Unless Cam is completely immobile now, his 2018 rushing totals - 500 and 4 - seem reasonable.

If that's the case, he can still have below-average passing efficiency and be a QB1. Which is what he's done his whole career. Now he's got Josh McDaniels and a pretty strong OL. Their receiving options aren't great, but again, he's regularly been a top 5 fantasy QB in spite of that his whole career.

I agree 100% with everything except the O Line being good. I think they are average at best and Brady seemed to be under a ton of pressure towards the end of the season. The X factor is his health. He still has to learn the offense as well - I know they will adapt it to his strengths.

If he is the starter I would love to have him in by QBBC because of his upside.

:lol: Need to see how healthy he looks in camp/preseason. Was it the foot issue that made him look so horrible last year? Was he still having shoulder issues?
