Did Baker Mayfield just make himself a Week 16 fantasy starter?

Baker Mayfield Headshot

Buccaneers QB Baker Mayfield dominated the Packers on Sunday, throwing for 381 yards and 4 TDs on 22-of-28 passing. That 13.6 yards per attempt was 4.0 better than his previous high for the season. His total yardage set a season high by 64 and marked just the second time this season Mayfield has reached 300. The TDs unsurprisingly marked a season high as well, but it was also his sixth game among the past eight with multiple TD passes. Mayfield rebounded Sunday after completing just 48.3% of his passe in each of the previous two games and tallying 202 yards or less in three straight outings. Mayfield entered Sunday as just the QB21 in fantasy points per game (depending on your format). But his game against Green Bay was his sixth among the past nine with 20+ fantasy points. He gets an upside matchup with the Jaguars in Week 16 that might land him inside the top 12 of our QB rankings. We'll see about his Week 17 matchup with the Saints.
