He netted 11 goals in his debut season but came into his own the following year, scoring 21 times in 45 games.
Last term he was restricted to just 13 appearances, although he still found the net six times.
"My aim is to be the top scorer in the league and get Bristol City into the Premier League," added Maynard.
"My target is 20 plus goals. I've proved I can do it the season before my injury so there's no reason why I can't do it. I'm going to be fit for selection come the 6 August so that's me ready for the 46 games.
"I believe in my own ability and I've proved I can score goals in the Championship. I'm not being big headed but I do put myself in the category of one of the league's best scorers."
