Being a quarterback on a team that strictly adheres to the run-first offensive approach can be a tough life. It’s certainly a difficult situation for anyone in fantasy football wondering if maybe a guy who once threw five touchdowns in a game this season could be a decent streamer. What about this week at home against the Eagles?
Fantasy Football analysis: Browns QB Baker Mayfield
Mayfield has played two games in a row now without throwing a single touchdown. He barely topped 250 passing yards in those two outings. And those were the games he played since his five-score effort, which has also been his only multi touchdown game in his last four.
The Eagles are better defending quarterbacks than they are running backs, which should tell you all you need to know about how the Browns will approach this game. Philadelphia hasn’t allowed an opposing passer to throw a touchdown pass in their last two games. I wouldn’t expect Mayfield to do much this week other than hand off the ball to his running backs.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Sit Baker Mayfield.
