Baker or Danny Dimes? *POLL!*

I’ve had verbal negotiation with an owner in my league, he may be willing to swap his D. Jones for my Baker (team A).

Obviously 7 weeks ago, this would have been beyond laughable, but Mayfield AND the Browns O have both been so bad. Daniel Jones has looked good as an NFL quarterback, but as a fantasy QB, could be a QB1 with his running ability.

1QB or SF/2QB?

Baker has way more upside than Jones imo. Jones also has shown a penchance for turnovers. Since his great start, he has thrown 6 INTs in 3 games and, although he does not have a recorded fumble during that period, I believe he has fumbled a couple times too. His pocket presence needs improvement. At the end of the day, I think Baker is a better prospect and has better talent around him.

Single QB league.

What is it about Baker that causes you to say he has higher upside? - I’m asking sincerely, btw

I'm taking Mayfield based on upside and value alone regardless of format.

baker is leading the nfl in interceptions tho? i'm genuinely curious why we're all (including me..I think) convinced that baker has more upside. he doesn't run, doesn't seem to have a very good coach. sure, he was drafted #1 overall rather than #6 but #6 overall from Duke is in some ways *more* impressive than #1 from OSU, is it not? maybe the giants got this one right? idk.

I've got them ranked similarly, but I'm a homer Giants fan. Figured I'd chime in after a 4 TD day for Jones.

I’m taking mayfield...better talent and has better talent around him. They need to address their oline and coach and they could post some huge numbers
