2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
Most people assume that Mayfield is the presumptive starter heading into the season. That's a fair assumption. If you're happy with Sam Darnold as your quarterback, why spend resources on a veteran, former No.1 overall pick at the same position? But the truth is, the capital expended on Mayfield wasn't all that much, and the team has publicly stated that they are in no rush to extend Baker beyond his current deal. Doesn't sound like a slam dunk to me.

Like Darnold, Mayfield is a gunslinging playmaker who never believes the play is dead. The result is often a forced play and a turnover. While Mayfield has thrown 92 TD's to Darnold's 54, he has had a better supporting cast. He also has thrown 56 INT's and fumbled 27 times, both more than Darnold.

He's a talented, but erratic passer, coming to a new team, playing for his fourth head coach in five seasons. He's also coming off an injury-riddled season. He should be given credit for that. But he should not be given the job. Until he wins it, he's nothing more than a longshot streaming option.

News From The Past 90 Days
Baker Mayfield picked up by LA Rams
Waived by Carolina on Monday
By: Doug Orth | Tue Dec 6, 9:30 pm

Former No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield was claimed on waivers today by the Los Angeles Rams, per league sources. The Rams now inherit the remaining $1.35 million on Mayfield’s contract. Mayfield is expected to fly to LA by tonight and could play Thursday night vs. the Raiders. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: While Mayfield could technically play Thursday, it is extremely unlikely he will do so. There is a much better chance he gets the nod at Green Bay in Week 15 if he can learn enough of the playbook. The move as a whole is an interesting one for the Rams, as Mayfield could be a reclamation project, a long-term backup to Matthew Stafford or a bridge quarterback if Stafford's neck injury ends up being one that threatens his career.


Panthers expected to release Baker Mayfield
Will be subject to waivers
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Dec 5, 10:41 am

Carolina Panthers
Sources: The #Panthers are expected to release QB Baker Mayfield. He'll hit waivers when it's finalized later today. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Mayfield was traded by the Browns to Carolina this pre-season and quickly face-planted when the games started. Even though San Francisco has an obvious need at the position it's doubtful they would bring Mayfield in given how poorly he's played over the last couple of seasons. Given his relatively low remaining salary, it's possible he could be claimed on waivers in the next 24 hours.


Panthers make QB change, Sam Darnold will start
Baker Mayfield back to the bench
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Nov 22, 4:02 pm

Carolina Panthers
Panthers announce they are making another QB change: Sam Darnold replaces Baker Mayfield in starting lineup. PJ Walker is still recovering from high-ankle sprain and Mayfield threw 2 INTs in 13-3 loss to Ravens. So interim HC Steve Wilks now going with Darnold. (Cameron Wolfe on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This will be the third starting quarterback for the Panthers this season as they've largely struggled on offense especially with Mayfield at the helm. Baker went 21-33 for 196 yards and 2 INTs last week against the Ravens. This will be Darnold's first start of the season, facing off against a Broncos defense that's given up the fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks.


Injury Baker Mayfield gets the start in Week 11
P.J. Walker dealing with high-ankle sprain
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 14, 10:16 am

Carolina Panthers
With P.J. Walker dealing with a high ankle sprain, Panthers’ HC Steve Wilks told reporters that Baker Mayfield will start Sunday vs. Baltimore. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Sam Darnold will be the backup. All three of the Carolina QBs have had high ankle sprains this season. Mayfield isn't a real fantasy option in most redraft leagues. The real question is how does this affect D.J. Moore? This offense struggled mightily with Baker at QB during the first five weeks. Temper your expectations for Moore moving forward.


Panthers fire head coach Matt Rhule
11-27 during his three seasons in Carolina
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 10, 11:09 am

Carolina Panthers
Panthers fired HC Matt Rhule, who has gone 11-27 during his three seasons in Carolina. Rhule leaves Carolina with four years left on the seven-year contract he received from Panthers’ owner David Tepper in January 2020. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: There had been rumors over the last couple weeks that owner David Tepper was getting tired of the situation in Carolina and changes could be coming. And here we are. The Panthers sputtered against the 49ers yesterday giving up 37 points while Baker Mayfield continues to be unimpressive. Passing game coordinator and secondary coach Steve Wilks has been named as interim head coach.
