During his short tenure, Dorsey is known for two unique things. First is the sweatshirt that says “Cleveland Browns”. The buddy boy comment is the other. For some, he may be better known for the comment rather than the sweatshirt.
That comment, which was longer than just those two words, was the beginning of the conversation Dorsey had with Mayfield prior to putting in the card with his name on it.
Exactly how many people Dorsey calls buddy boy is unknown but Mayfield is one of them. For keepers leagues especially this buddy boy mindset could determine how long and how successful one’s team is.
Given that this is from the fantasy and not real life point of view of football, that player is not going to be the top pick and should not be a quarterback. Depending on a number of factors, fantasy teams could end up with multiple buddy boys. Two examples are two top five picks or a top three pick to go along with the one player already kept.
Perhaps down the road, Mayfield could be viewed as a top fantasy quarterback too. If that happens though, he still would not be a first rounder. That would be the case unless the commissioner of the league significantly altered the point settings.
