According to reports, the Carolina Panthers You have a new QB coming to town. Baker Mayfield He traded for a conditional 2024 pick for the fifth round.
So, Seahawks fans, it’s time to get used to Drew Lock. Adjust DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett’s posts accordingly.
Brown will roll with Deshaun Watson or Jacoby Brissett.
It’s possible that Sam Darnold’s days are over, and Matt Coral will have to wait.
Mayfield brings with him four seasons of experience, only one of which has been a successful season (2020). He’s passed 14,125 yards and 92 touchdowns in those four years, with a completion rate of 61.6%.
He’s always been asked if Cleveland is a good fit for Mayfield, and despite Mayfield’s late-season success in 2020, the Browns’ locker room has never been in tune. Odell Beckham, Jr. His Super Bowl win with the Rams did little to narrate that Mayfield wasn’t the problem. When The Browns acquired Deshaun Watson for a king’s ransom, it was clear that Cleveland no longer believed in QB as the future of the franchise. He probably shouldn’t have left the lights on at Progressive Stadium in his latest commercial.
For purposes of fiction, Mayfield is back on the radar with new weapons: DJ Moore, Robbie Anderson, Terrace Marshall Jr., and Christian McCaffrey.
Mayfield himself has never been a fictional star. In his best season, Mayfield ended the role of fictional QB16. He finished last season as QB24. But perhaps this system is a boost to the signal caller. We saw Sam Darnold get off to a solid start in the Carolinas last season with three 300-yard runs in his first four games with the Panthers before the roof collapsed. However, Mayfield remains a Weekly Player or QB2 until proven otherwise.
Moore should see a bump with QB playing a little better. He had a 36% stake in the air yards and ran 90% of the roads in the Carolinas that fell last season. Despite this, it only ended up as the WR18. He’s one of the most talented recipients in the league, and hopefully he and Mayfield can connect.
Robbie Anderson remains a high- and low-ceilinged play. Anderson finished the PPR WR49 title last year and recently tweeted about retiring. Can he go out for a game or two? surely. But perhaps there are better darts to throw in your late picks.
Terrace Marshall Jr. could see the biggest bump. Jarvis Landry was among the top gambling receivers in the league when he played for Baker Mayfield. Landry finished two seasons + 1,000 yards (2018, 2019) with Mayfield under center. Despite undergoing a tough rookie season, Marshall is a free pick in the late rounds and may find himself as a third target after Moore and McCaffrey.
McCaffrey remains a fictional lover, as QB’s play never affected his production. On a per-game basis, McCaffrey finished as the RB5 in the PPR Leagues last season. Mayfield is sure to cancel a lot of passes, and the new QB knows how to leave his appearance in the center of attack to win games. McCaffrey is still the first round pick.
In general, nothing much has changed in Carolina. Don’t craft Darnold (you weren’t anyway); Mayfield is only an option in the Premier Leagues, and Moore and McCaffrey are still strong fictional picks.
