Mayfield’s Fantasy Numbers are a Nightmare for Opposing Coaches

Mayfield’s Fantasy Numbers are a Nightmare for Opposing Coaches

Practice MayfieldFantasy football rules. If you’re not playing it for money, a trophy or possible embarrassment from other league members, you’re at least doing it for fun. Saturday Baker Mayfield lit up the Tulsa defense for 572 yards of total offense and six touchdowns. Numbers that would guarantee you a win this week and make you look like the smartest man in the room for drafting Mayfield in the late rounds. It doesn’t matter that his performance came against a defense that ranked 110th going into Saturday’s game. What does matter? Mayfield is becoming a headache for opposing coordinators. When asked about his impact on the game vs. Tulsa Mayfield said, “They came out and gave us what we saw on film. We just took advantage and tried to get the ball out quickly.” For the second straight week Mayfield showed his legs can be just as effective as his arm, rushing for 85 yards including a 39-yard touchdown. With a performance this impressive you wonder just how much Mayfield can improve. Lincoln Reilly says, “There’s still a lot of things he can do better, a lot of things we can do better as an offense. The stats don’t always tell the whole story.”
Mayfield will get better as the year goes along, most players do, which could be scary for anyone left on OU’s schedule. We asked for balance in the Sooner offense, and one player may give us just that.
