Baker Mayfield Starting To Click With New Offense

Tuesday, June 25, 12:35 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Baker Mayfield showed significant progress during mandatory minicamp as he learns new offensive coordinator Liam Coen's scheme. It helps that Mayfield has a good amount of continuity among the team's offensive personnel, from his supporting cast of skill-position players to most of the offensive line. "He has a lot more audibles on his plate than he did in the past and he's getting them down very [well]," head coach Todd Bowles said of Mayfield. The 29-year-old Mayfield had a career year under Dave Canales, now the head coach of the Panthers, in 2023. Mayfield has plenty of playmakers around him and is great at pushing the ball downfield, but his lack of rushing upside pushes him down to low-end QB2 territory in fantasy as he looks for an encore in Tampa in 2024.

Malik Willis Could See Playing Time Against Falcons

Tuesday, October 24, 2:22 PM

Tennessee Titans quarterback Malik Willis will see at least some playing time in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons if Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is unavailable. Tannehill suffered a high-ankle sprain in the Week 6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens and is not practicing to begin the week. Head coach Mike Vrabel said both Willis and rookie Will Levis will play on Sunday if Tannehill is ruled out. Obviously, neither signal-caller is on the fantasy radar given the circumstances, but both are worth picking up in deep superflex or two-QB leagues. Willis has completed just 35 of his 66 passing attempts for 350 yards, zero touchdowns, and three interceptions over the last two seasons. Since Levis was selected in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft, he is likely the favorite to take over the full-time job if Tannehill is out for a while or if the Titans decide to turn the offense over to a young signal-caller.
