Promising young AFC quarterbacks Derek Carr of the Oakland Raiders and Tennessee Titans sophomore Marcus Mariota began Week 16 as top-10 fantasy scorers and ended it with broken legs. While there was much to celebrate this holiday weekend, both on and off the football field, the great equalizer in fantasy tends to be about injuries and who becomes unavailable.
