Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

The first overall pick in the draft, one has to assume it's only a matter of time before Mayfield is taking first team reps. That said, Tyrod Taylor is a capable NFL quarterback and Mayfield does have some adjustments to make coming into the NFL. Though undersized, Mayfield has an above average arm and the kind of escapability that gives NFL defensive coordinators nightmares. But it's the gunslinger mentality that is likely to get him into trouble early in his NFL career. Skillset-wise he compares favorably to a guy like Russell Wilson, but ultimately it will come down to his decision making early on. There are also questions along the offensive line, though the Browns have stockpiled an impressive array of talent at the skill positions, adding Jarvis Landry, Carlos Hyde and Nick Chubb to a group that already includes Josh Gordon, David Njoku, and Duke Johnson. Slowly but surely, Cleveland is getting better on both sides of the ball, and Mayfield is the guy they've tapped to be the face of the franchise.

2018 Season Outlook

Mayfield will have some fantasy value when he takes over under center for the Browns. But it won't be without growing pains, and barring an injury to Taylor it likely won't be to start the season. It's also important to remember that Taylor led the Bills to the playoffs last season, and it's not a stretch to suggest that there's far more talent in Cleveland then there was on last year's Buffalo squad. If Taylor keeps the Browns in the playoff hunt then making the switch to Mayfield mid-season becomes far more difficult to execute.
