2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
With good reason Cleveland went nuclear on its quarterback room this offseason, jettisoning all-three players who made starts last year, replacing them with the trio of Taylor, Baker Mayfield, and Drew Stanton. Despite being handcuffed with a conservative offense, and absolutely no playmakers at receiver, Taylor has put up respectable fantasy stats the last three seasons as Buffalo's starter, finishing as the No.18, No.19 and No.20 scoring quarterback, making him a decent option in 2 QB leagues, or bye week fill in for standard leagues. Obviously the biggest draws for Cleveland was Taylor's dual-threat game, accuracy, and veteran leadership. Taylor gives Cleveland the luxury of taking it slow with Mayfield, as his touchdown to interception ratio (65 total touchdowns to 16 interceptions in three seasons as a starter) will at least keep Cleveland in most of the games they play. Make no mistake; this team needs to win some games.

Taylor is going to end up giving Cleveland chances to win, but like your fantasy team, he isn't capable of bringing them over the top. This franchise has gotten dismal fantasy play from its quarterbacks for literally decades, and there's no doubt that Taylor is an upgrade on most of them, but he also isn't suddenly going to become a fantasy priority. He'll enjoy a much better set of pass catchers than he had in Eastern New York, but this is still a team that went 0-16 last year, and with the 1st overall pick sitting behind him, probably won't play 16 games this year. If he does end up playing in most of the games I do think he's capable of having a really solid year in Cleveland, but even that won't be good for anything other than a middling QB2 rating.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Browns make it official: Mayfield to start Week 4
Tyrod Taylor in concussion protocol
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 24, 12:45 pm

Cleveland Browns
Coach Hue Jackson named his No. 1 overall pick the starting quarterback on Monday, replacing Tyrod Taylor, who was knocked out Thursday night's 21-17 victory over the Jets with a concussion. Baker Mayfield will make his first NFL start Sunday in Oakland, against the Derek Carr-led Raiders, becoming the 30th quarterback to start a game for the Browns since 1999. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

FFToday's Take: Mayfield under center has a better shot to invoke some life into the Browns offense including Jarvis Landry and tight end David Njoku. Mayfield is a worthy QB streamer this week against the Raiders defense that just gave up 3 touchdowns to Ryan Tannehill.


Baker Mayfield to start vs. Lions
Rookie gets nod in final preseason game while starters sit
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 28, 8:10 am

Cleveland Browns
Baker Mayfield will start vs. the Lions on Thursday. Coach Hue Jackson said he'll rest his starters in the preseason finale Thursday to get them to the Steelers game Sept. 9 healthy, and that Mayfield could possibly play a half. "I am not playing the starters in this game,'' he said. "You guys have been looking for that. They will not play. Specific guys will play and play quite a bit, and then we will let some other guys finish the game." (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

FFToday's Take: Tyrod Taylor is still the unquestioned starter. Some are questioning the decision to play Mayfield with an untrusted unit around him, which could translate to more punishment and possible injury. Dynasty owners can get a look at Mayfield but it's always a risk to play a #1 pick in a meaningless game. These are, after all, the Browns.


Stock rising for Antonio Callaway
Browns WR rising to top of depth chart with Corey Coleman in Buffalo
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 7, 8:48 am

Cleveland Browns
Slot specialist Jarvis Landry may have emerged as Tyrod Taylor's go-to guy in Cleveland, but in the absence of Josh Gordon and recently traded Corey Coleman, WR Antonio Callaway has risen to the top of the depth chart. (PFT)

FFToday's Take: Callaway has looked exactly how he was described by general manager John Dorsey shortly after the Browns selected him early in the fourth round. Off-field issues torpedoed his draft stock, but many scouts believed Callaway could have been the first or second receiver selected in the draft if it were based just on overall talent and ability. He's drawn comparisons to Santonio Holmes and could be a sneaky fantasy pick.


Browns confirm Tyrod Taylor as starter
Cleveland going with veteran QB, Mayfield is backup
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Jul 31, 9:48 am

Cleveland Browns
Steve Doerschuk on Twitter: "If Jackson has said it once he's said it 50 times. Today: 'Do you want me to say it again. Tyrod is our starting quarterback.'" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Well, I guess this means that Baker Mayfield has some work to do to see the field his rookie season. Tyrod Taylor could provide surprising numbers if he holds onto the starting job and gets the most out of a talented corps of receivers. He has an outside shot at being a Top 20 fantasy QB but has plenty of baggage and a reputation for underachieving.
