News: 8 hours agoCarr (rib/shoulder) completed 18 of 26 passes for 119 yards, two touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 28-6 win against the Panthers.
Spin: Not only did Carr suit up one week removed from suffering a concussion and rib and right shoulder injuries, he was playing without wide receiver Rashid Shaheed (thigh), gadget player Taysom Hill (foot/hand) and rookie running back Kendre Miller (ankle). While he failed to reach 200 passing yards for the fifth time in 13 games this season, Carr tossed multiple touchdowns for the fourth occasion, connecting with Chris Olave and Jimmy Graham for short scores (seven and four yards, respectively) in the fourth quarter. Afterward, Carr told Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com that he's "up to three rib fractures" through Week 14, so there's a decent chance he operates with practice restrictions as the Saints prepare for next Sunday's matchup with the Giants.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Carr signed with the Saints during the offseason following nine seasons with the Raiders. Carr has had stretches of strong play, but what he hasn't had is much fantasy success. The 32-year-old has zero career top-10 fantasy seasons and he's finished 19th or worse in points per game in eight of his nine campaigns. Carr hasn't cleared 27 pass TDs in a season since 2016 and he's a nonfactor with his legs, having yet to clear 140 rushing yards in a single season. Carr's arrival in New Orleans is an upgrade for the team's pass-catchers, but that doesn't mean Carr will be fantasy-relevant. At best, he's a midrange QB2.
