Browns exercise fifth-year option

ANALYSIS
It’s not much of a surprise to see Cleveland pick up the option for the 26-year-old, which the team also did for teammate Denzel Ward. Mayfield helped the Browns secure their first playoff victory in 26 years last season after completing 63 percent of his passes for 3,563 yards, 26 touchdowns and eight interceptions while also rushing for 165 yards and one touchdown in 16 games. A long-term extension could be next now that his status is secured for the next two years.

Past Fantasy Outlooks




The No. 1 pick in last year’s draft, Mayfield debuted Week 3 and took over the starting job the following week. His big break came when the Browns fired offensive coordinator Todd Haley entering Week 9, replacing him with running backs coach Freddie Kitchens. In six games under Haley, Mayfield completed 58.3 percent of his passes with 6.6 YPA and eight touchdowns. In eight games under Kitchens, those numbers jumped to 68.4 percent, 8.6 YPA and 19 TDs, sparked by success throwing the deep ball. In Weeks 9-17, on attempts longer than 20 yards, Mayfield posted a 14.7 TD percentage (2nd), 17.8 YPA (3rd) and 108.5 passer rating (6th). For the season, his 9.4-yard average depth of target ranked fifth in the league. The offseason addition of Odell Beckham Jr. could take Mayfield and the Cleveland offense to the next level this year under Kitchens, now the head coach but still the playcaller, with former Buccaneers assistant Todd Monken the new offensive coordinator. Jarvis Landry returns to man the slot, with young wideouts Rashard Higgins and Antonio Callaway showing promise and tight end David Njoku perhaps on the verge of a breakout. Meanwhile, Kareem Hunt will join Nick Chubb in the backfield at midseason after serving an eight-game suspension. In short, Mayfield is set up for big success.

The first overall pick in the draft, Mayfield enters training camp as the backup to Tyrod Taylor. How long that remains the hierarchy is uncertain, despite coach Hue Jackson’s proclaimed belief in Taylor. Perhaps Jackson is timid about another rookie starter after last year’s debacle with DeShone Kizer, but Jackson has won a single game in two years, so if there’s a coach in America who’s apt to play the QB who gives him the best shot at winning, it’s Jackson. Mayfield was highly accurate in college, has a strong arm and throws an excellent deep ball. At 6-1, 215, he doesn’t have ideal height, but his batted-pass stats were excellent in college and, according to scouts, he processes information quickly and has the mobility to escape pressure. The Browns retooled their skill positions this offseason, adding Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway to a wideout group that hopes to finally have Josh Gordon for a full season. They also signed Carlos Hyde and drafted Nick Chubb to join Duke Johnson in the backfield. Better still, the offense now belongs to coordinator Todd Haley, who occupied the same role in Pittsburgh the last six years. Jackson will no longer call plays, and that will benefit whoever is under center.
