Browns HC Hue Jackson confirmed Monday what everyone suspected after Thursday night: QB Baker Mayfield is taking over the starting job. Tyrod Taylor completed just 48.8% of his passes at 5.5 yards per attempt and a 63.7 QB rating before sustaining a concussion in the win over the Jets. Mayfield came on to go 17-of-23 passing for 201 yards (8.7 YPA) and a 100.1 passer rating. Anyone watching the game could see the rookie sparking a struggling offense. Mayfield carries fantasy upside with his mobility and a solid set of receivers but figures to open as a QB2 -- even in an upside Week 4 matchup at Oakland.
