The 7 Biggest Questions About the Rams Reclaiming Baker Mayfield

Considering he was cut by one of the worst teams in the NFL after being benched twice this season, it’s hard to say he’s one of the top 32 quarterbacks in the NFL. This season, he actually he was one of the worst. Out of 31 qualifying quarterbacks, he ranks 31st in total QBR this season. His QBR is 18.3, much worse than the next closest player, Davis Mills (29.7).

So no, Mayfield isn’t great and expectations shouldn’t be too high the rest of the year. However, he was the No. 1 overall pick in 2018 for a reason. He’s mobile, has a strong arm and can be relatively accurate when he stays clean in the pocket, but he also makes some bad decisions that result in turnovers.

In fact, he fits well into Sean McVay’s quarterback-friendly offense, so there’s hope the Rams can get more out of him, but he’s not going to turn him on.
