Derek Carr Has Tough Matchup In Week 2

Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr will have a difficult matchup in Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints. The Saints Defense was able to grab two interceptions and sack quarterback Tom Brady three times in Week 1. Carr had an efficient performance against the Carolina Panthers but did not rack up a lot of fantasy points, throwing for just under 240 yards and one touchdown. Carr has shown that he does not turn the ball over, but his inability to push the ball downfield makes him a backup quarterback in most fantasy formats. He has a DFS price of $5,700, but don't expect a whole lot of upside from Carr this week.

Derek Carr Needs To Lead Offense To More Scores

Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was in charge of an offense that scored 26 points per game back in 2016 when the team went 12-4, but other than that season, he has had trouble getting the ball into the end zone. Carr had a 70.4 percent completion rate and career-highs in yardage (4,054) and yards per attempt (8.0) in 2019, but the Raiders still brought in competition for him in the offseason in the form of Marcus Mariota. Despite being 11th in the league in total yardage, the Raiders only scored touchdowns 52.8 percent of the time (22nd in the league) when they reached the red zone. Carr had a great training camp and has more weapons in the passing game this year, but he's shown in the past that he's nowhere near QB1 material. In a decent matchup against the Panthers in Week 1, he's a low-end QB2 for those in superflex leagues.

Derek Carr Found Open Receivers Under Pressure

Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr posted the third-best passer rating (103.7) while under pressure in 2019, and his completion percentage of 66.7 under pressure was the best of any qualifying signal-caller in the league last year. Carr's completion percentage above expectation of plus-5.9 had to do with the fact that he targeted open receivers at a rate of 56.9 percent, which was tops in the NFL. There are a lot of knocks on Carr as a passer and his leash might be short in 2020 with Marcus Mariota behind him, but he did find open receivers in the face of pressure last year with regularity. Not many fantasy owners will be targeting him, even as a QB2, but Carr could surprise and hold off Mariota with some new weapons that the Raiders gave him in the draft, mainly wide receiver Henry Ruggs III.
