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.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
