24. Baker Mayfield, Cleveland Browns
This one is a little hard to judge. Baker Mayfield is not a bad quarterback overall but this is a ranking for how the signal-callers stand right now, and Mayfield’s stock has never been lower.
Cleveland was supposed to be a contender this season but they went 8-9 (6-9 with Mayfield starting) and their ineffective passing game was a huge reason for that. Of course, he was injured in Week 2 and just had surgery to fix a partially torn shoulder labrum but he now enters a contract year coming off his worst statistical season.
And if we are being honest, it doesn’t look great for him that he and Odell Beckham, Jr. never got on the same page but yet OBJ fit right in with the Rams and made a big impact.
23. Carson Wentz, Indianapolis Colts
Early on in the season, it seemed the Indianapolis Colts made a grave error in trading for Carson Wentz, who was 0-3 in his first three starts. Then, he led the team on a run bit before long, the issues he had early in the season began again.
Wentz lost his final two starts, including a Week 18 defeat at the hands of the Jacksonville Jaguars. That dropped them to 9-8 and cost them a shot at the postseason. Afterward, no one seemed to want to commit to him beyond this season, which is terrible considering he was acquired for a first-round pick.
As far as the numbers go for Wentz, he looks good — but his effectiveness is anything but.
