News: 3 days agoMayfield completed 12 of 22 pass attempts for 204 yards and carried six times for nine yards during Sunday's 22-17 win over the Eagles.
Spin: Mayfield averaged a healthy 9.3 yards per attempt but took a backseat to the run game for much of the day due to more bad weather in Cleveland. This lackluster passing output was actually his highest in three games after he averaged just 127 yards over his previous two, giving a clear picture of the state of the Browns offense at this point. However, Mayfield has led his team to a 7-3 record with three wins in the last four games. He will enjoy a favorable matchup against the Jaguars next Sunday, but Cleveland figures to continue with its run-heavy approach against an inferior opponent.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Mayfield was one of 2019's biggest busts, with preseason concerns related to interceptions, a lack of rushing production and shaky offensive tackles all proving problematic when push came to shove. The 2018 first overall pick appeared in all 16 of Cleveland's games and was 10th in pass attempts, but he managed only 25 total touchdowns to go along with 21 interceptions (second most), 40 sacks (seventh) and 141 rushing yards (20th). Mayfield was fantasy's No. 20 scoring QB and managed only two weekly finishes better than ninth. A supporting cast led by Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt and Austin Hooper is a positive, as is the arrival of new coach Kevin Stefanski. Mayfield is a fine post-hype sleeper but shouldn't be counted on as a starter just yet.
