Fantasy Files: Don't discount Baker Mayfield going super saiyan in 2021

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down Baker Mayfield's fantasy football stock ahead of next season. It's been an up-and-down career for Mayfield since being selected with the No. 1 overall pick of the 2018 draft; just realize he's shown off borderline erotic arm talent and high-end fantasy upside along the way. Don't let the absence of Odell Beckham make you think this Browns offense won't be in its best state yet with anyone's idea of a true WR1 back in action. Despite Mayfield's struggles over the years, he's still performed admirably in PFF's more stable metrics: the best could very well be yet to come, particularly considering the continuity this offense possesses all around the offense. Ian closes out the podcast with a look at Mayfield's projected volume and fantasy rank.
