Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield draws an excellent Week 15 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals have been one of the most generous defenses in the league for opposing passing attacks, allowing the most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. Mayfield's on-field performance hasn't been great this season but he has the weapons and the matchup lined up in Week 15, giving him a good chance to finish as a QB1 in the fantasy semifinals. Treat Mayfield as a low-end QB1 with plenty of upside this weekend.
Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield was critical of the training staff concerning the injury to WR Odell Beckham Jr. and how it has been handled. Head coach Freddie Kitchens addressed the situation with his quarterback. 'We don't want him addressing other players' injuries, in that manner especially,' Kitchens said Monday, Dec. 9. 'It's been addressed and (Mayfield) understands how to handle things like that moving forward.'
Fantasy Spin: It appears that Mayfield received a talking to, but he will not receive any further disciplinary action from the team for his public criticism of the training staff. He is expected to be good to go for Week 15 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed 11-of-24 passes for 192 yards, no touchdowns and two touchdowns in Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals. He salvaged the day somewhat with a rushing touchdown and 13 yards on the ground.
Fantasy Spin: Mayfield made a lot of mistakes in what should have been a very favorable matchup, so it's a disappointment for fantasy owners, especially those who saw their playoff begin. He will look to right the ship in what should be another favorable matchup in Week 15 at Arizona.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield struggled in a 27-19 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14. Mayfield went 11-for-24 passing for 192 yards and two interceptions in the win, although he did add 13 yards and a touchdown rushing the ball. It goes down as yet another disappointing performance for Mayfield, who was going up against an extremely vulnerable Cincinnati pass defense. He will find himself in another plus matchup against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15 but he will be tough to trust after disappointing against the Bengals on Sunday.
Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield faces the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14, and he has seven touchdowns, no interceptions and a 94 Total QBR in two career meetings with the Bengals.
Fantasy Spin: Mayfield has been coming alive in recent weeks, tossing eight touchdowns compared to just two picks over his last four games. Look for the trend to continue against a porous Cincinnati defense, and Mayfield has potential as a low-end QB1.
Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (hand, ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Fantasy Spin: Mayfield has thrown for eight touchdowns in the last four games and will have a favorable matchup this week. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Cleveland Browns CB Robert Jackson (ankle) was unable to practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals. S Eric Murray (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as doubtful. DE Olivier Vernon (knee) did not practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is listed as questionable. TE Demetrius Harris (shoulder), OT Chris Hubbard (knee) and C JC Tretter (knee) were limited in practice Friday and are also listed as questionable. WR Odell Beckham Jr. (groin) remained a limited participant in practice all week but has been removed from the injury report.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield (hand) threw without a wrap on his hand at Friday's practice and "looked good" according to beat reporters covering the session. It was also reported that there is no visible bruise on the back of the quarterback's hand after he dinged it on a defender's facemask during Week 13's loss. Mayfield has ramped up his activity as the week has gone on, a good sign for his availability for Sunday's matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. If Mayfield does suit up, which looks likely, he can be treated as a high-upside QB2 for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (hand/ribs) was upgraded to a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec.
Fantasy Spin: Mayfield should be good to go ahead of one of his best matchups of the season against the division-rival Cincinnati Bengals. He's a low-end QB1 in the matchup.
Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (hand, ribs) resumed throwing in practice Thursday, Dec. 5.
Fantasy Spin: Mayfield had a letdown in Week 13 with 196 passing yards, a TD and an interception on the road against the Steelers, but he should find the pickings easier at home Sunday against the Bengals. He's a solid streaming play if you're weighing options at quarterback.
Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (hand, ribs) will be 'fine,' head coach Freddie Kitchens said Thursday, Dec. 5. Kitchens said that Mayfield didn't throw in practice Wednesday to rest his injured hand, and that the rib injury wasn't a factor.
Fantasy Spin: We'll certainly monitor Mayfield's practice status the rest of the week, but expect him to be at near 100 percent as a solid QB2 starter this Sunday against the visiting Bengals.
Cleveland Browns wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. (groin) and Jarvis Landry (hip) and quarterback Baker Mayfield (hand, ribs) were all limited in practice on Wednesday. All three players should be fine to suit up in Week 14 in an excellent matchup against the one-win Bengals. Landry has become the safer fantasy weapon than OBJ, but both are basically must-starts against Cincinnati's weak secondary. Mayfield has mostly been a disappointment in the first year with Beckham at his disposal, but he'll have QB1 upside in a matchup that should see him bounce back after a poor showing in Week 13 against the Steelers.
Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (hand, ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Fantasy Spin: Mayfield suffered the injuries in the last game but did not miss any playing time and should be ready for Week 14. He will have a favorable matchup and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some fantasy leagues.
Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (hand) will practice fully Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Fantasy Spin: Mayfield has been a sizeable bust in fantasy this season as he ranks 18th in fantasy points at the position through 12 games. He faces the Cincinnati Bengals this week, which is a midrange matchup. He'll be a low-end QB1 option.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield (thumb) will practice in full on Wednesday as the team prepares to take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14. Mayfield hit his thumb on a defender's facemask during the Browns' Week 13 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers but was able to return and finish the game after getting X-rays. According to head coach Freddie Kitchens, Mayfield will not be limited in practice this week. Mayfield's availability on the first day of the practice week is a good sign for Sunday. The Bengals have struggled against the quarterback position this season, which makes Mayfield a high-upside QB2 in the first round of the fantasy playoffs.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield (hand) doesn't think the right hand injury he suffered in Week 13's loss to the Steelers will keep him from suiting up in Week 14 against the Bengals. I fully expect to be able to play, Mayfield said during his postgame news conference. Head coach Freddie Kitchens said the injury is "a contusion right now, a bruise." Mayfield missed two snaps on Sunday when his hand hit the face mask of outside linebacker Bud Dupree. X-rays came back negative at halftime and the quarterback wore a white glove on his right hand in the second half. Mayfield went 18-for-32 for 196 yards, a touchdown, interception and lost fumble in the disappointing outing. Injury aside, he's been a big letdown for fantasy owners in 2019. He does have a good matchup in Week 14 against Cincinnati, but we doubt many owners will be relying on Mayfield in the fantasy playoffs.
Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (hand) is reportedly dealing with a bruise on his right hand that occurred after he hit his hand on the facemask of a defender in Week 13 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. X-rays came back negative on Sunday, Dec. 1, and he was unsure after meeting with the media following the game if he was to undergo an MRI.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield struggled in a 20-13 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 13. Mayfield completed 18 of 32 passes for 196 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the losing effort. The Browns jumped out to a big lead, holding a 10-0 advantage early in the second quarter. It was almost all Pittsburgh after that as the Steelers roared back to pick up a big divisional win. Mayfield injured his throwing hand late in the second quarter after hitting his hand off of a defender's helmet on his follow-through. He went for X-rays during halftime and was able to return for the third quarter after backup Garrett Gilbert ran a few plays during his absence. Cleveland will look to regroup in Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals. For now, consider Mayfield questionable to suit up for that contest.
Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (thumb, hand) completed 18-of-32 passes for 196 yards, one touchdown and one interception with a lost fumble in Week 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He suffered an apparent right thumb or hand injury at the end of the first half and returned after halftime wearing a glove on his throwing hand.
Fantasy Spin: After Mayfield left the game his effectiveness went out the window. The Browns left 10-0 at one point, but were outscored 20-3 to finish the game. The Browns will look to rebound in Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield (hand) returned to the Week 13 game after missing some time because of an apparent hand injury.
Fantasy Spin: Fantasy players should check on Mayfield's status after the game to see if he will miss any time. He has been playing better lately and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues moving forward.
