2015 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Dec-13-2015 by Shawn Childs
Week 14 DFS Update (12/13): Carr threw more Ints (3) than TDs (2) in Week 13 with respectable yards (283), but he was well off the pace with so many high scores coming from the QB position. With one bad game (169 yards) in his last seven games, he has averaged 306 passing yards. On the year, Carr has 26 passing TDs in 11 full games. In Week 5 he threw for 249 yards and a TD vs. the Broncos. Denver has the No.1 QB Fantasy defense in the league, with 10 teams scoring fewer than 20 Fantasy points.
Week 13 DFS Update (12/3): If you throw out his short game in Week 1, Carr is real close to being a top five QB in 2015. After his disaster game vs. the Lions (169 yards and no TDs), he threw for 330 yards and three TDs vs. the Titans. He has over 300 yards passing in four of his last five starts and six in 10 full games played in 2015. Carr has three TDs or more in five games. Last year in two games vs. the Chiefs, he threw for 396 yards with two TDs. Kansas City had their second worst game defending the QB in Week 12 (337 combined yards and three TDs), which ended their five week run of holding the QB to 15 Fantasy points or less. The Raiders have talent at WR and Carr is willing to use his 3rd and 4th option in the passing game. As well as he has played, he looks more like an against the grain play with limited upside.
Update (11/25): Carr has been a breakout star in his second NFL season and has developed into a Fantasy QB1. To this point in his sophomore campaign he has 2,565 yards and an extremely impressive TD-to-INT ratio of 21-to-6. If he continues at this rate he has the potential to be a breakout player of the year candidate. He is a solid play this season and a must-own in dynasty leagues. Carr appears to be a star in the making.
