Baker -- When to Worry?

Postby jonesmaster » Mon Oct 28, 2019 7:39 am

Is this guy a buy low, or just a straight up avoid for the time being? O-Line and Kitchens have been horrible, but Baker has missed reads too. Not sure what to think atm. Baker had an elite rookie season but man ...Anyone have any precedents for this?

I am worried, but not enough to not buy low at the right price. I feel the OL and poor coaching are as much a part of his performance as his own mistales and that can be fixed.

History says you should always worry about Dolphins, Browns, and Jets QBs.

Baker beat a lot of bad teams last year, and has elite weapons this year, but can't produce. I wanted to buy him.

It was only gonna cost me Winston & Breida, but I couldn't do it.

I would think his worst case scenario - from a career outlook perspective - is Mariota/Bortles - and that means you'll still get 2-3 more years of a QB2 starter if that is the case.

Baker showed enough flashes last year to "probably" earn himself a fresh start with a new HC.

But man, this year has been pretty alarming.

Three straight games without an interception! :thumbup:

Also two consecutive games with 2 passing TDs. Didn't have any Weeks 1-9, and things have looked much more competent in the last few games. Maybe the Browns are putting it all together?
