Was it Odell Beckham Jr. or was it Baker Mayfield? Beckham Jr. has emphatically answered that question as his Los Angeles Rams are on the verge of a Super Bowl berth.

Now, the question has shifted to, was it David Njoku or Baker Mayfield? In his first season with Mayfield, Njoku was great. He finished up the 2018 season with 639 yards and four touchdowns. Since then, he hasn’t come close to that sort of production.

With Joe Burrow, Njoku could return to his 2018 form. He’s a big and physical player and has proven that his injury-hit 2019 season was an anomaly.

In all likelihood, the Cleveland Browns are going to give Baker another shot. If that happens, Njoku should be banging on the door of the Bengals, hoping and praying that they let him in.
