Scouting report

NO QB Derek Carr - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. Detroit Lions

Derek Carr reached 300 yards last week against the Falcons as he returned from a concussion and a shoulder injury. However, he did go without a touchdown pass as he watched his wide receivers start dropping due to injuries. Chris Olave is going to try and play this week, but if not, his top receivers will be rookie A.T. Perry, Lynn Bowden and Keith Kirkwood. Carr is a low-end QB2 with that group, maybe a little more if Olave can play.

NO QB Derek Carr - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Atlanta Falcons

The bye week helped Derek Carr recover from his concussion and shoulder injury suffered in Week 10. He's off the injury report and will play against the Falcons. He is now without Michael Thomas, who went on injured reserve with a knee injury, but Chris Olave and Rashid Shaheed should still have success against the Falcons, giving Carr some streaming potential this week. He's an intriguing QB2 this week.

NO QB Derek Carr - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Minnesota Vikings

Derek Carr's streak of 300-yard games came to a halt last week against the Bears, but it was another good day taking care of the football. Carr completed a season-high 73.5% of his passes (25/34) and threw two touchdowns. Carr has been fine of late and will make a fine QB2 this week against a good Minnesota defense that is rolling with four straight wins.

NO QB Derek Carr - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Chicago Bears

New Orleans has been getting a bit hotter on offense and that includes Derek Carr. Three straight 300-yard games for Mr. Carr has him on the border of being a starting quarterback again in fantasy football. Especially this week against a Bears team that is falling apart, though they did just add Montez Sweat, so it will be interesting to see how they use him this week.

NO QB Derek Carr - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Indianapolis Colts

The Saints have really been letting Derek Carr sling the football of late. Two straight games with at least 50 passing attempts which has turned into two straight games with 300+ yards and a touchdown. And now he gets a favorable matchup against a down Colts defense. This could be a week that Carr becomes an interesting daily option or if you happen to stream quarterbacks.

NO QB Derek Carr - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Derek Carr threw 50 passes in Week 6 against the Texans, completing 32 of them for 353 yards. Still, he only threw one touchdown pass. He has just one game with multiple touchdown passes. The Saints' passing offense just hasn't been all that explosive unless the ball is in the hands of Alvin Kamara or Chris Olave. The only reason Carr is bumped up rankings this week is because six teams are on a bye, so the pool is limited. Still, you can probably find a better option on the waiver wire this week while your main quarterback is on a bye, if that is the case for you.

NO QB Derek Carr - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Houston Texans

Derek Carr actually threw three touchdown passes in last week’s dominating win over the Patriots. Yet he once again threw for less than 200 yards. That’s three games in a row for that. He gets the Texans this week, who haven’t been all that bad on defense this year, especially rookie Will Anderson, who will look to get right in Carr’s face all day. Carr can be a serviceable QB2, but you’re likely to find better options this week, even in the QB2 range.
