Baker Mayfield, QB, Cleveland Browns
Mayfield completed 18 of 31 passes for 188 yards against the Denver Broncos in Week 15, along with an interception and a lost fumble. But he had multiple passing touchdowns for the sixth time in his last eight games, and gets a nice matchup in Week 16.
They’ve no allowed zero or one touchdown pass in four of their last five games, due in part to lack of volume, but the Cincinnati Bengals entered Week 15 allowing the second-most fantasy points to quarterbacks (21.8 per game; ESPN scoring). Mayfield was the one quarterback exception in that aforementioned five games, with 258 passing yards and four touchdowns back in Week 12.
Week 15 was a slight bump in the road for Mayfield, who has played well since the Browns fired Hue Jackson and Todd Haley. He’s in line for a nice rebound against the Bengals in Week 16, just in time to help fantasy owners win some money.
