Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
Carr bounced back in a big way against the Chiefs, as he has seemed to own their defense this year. That was actually a tough matchup for opposing quarterbacks, where Atlanta is one of the best matchups for quarterbacks. Carr is very much a streamer if needed for Week 12.
Passing: 261 Yards, 2 TD, 0 INT.
Rushing: 8 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Two years into the Jon Gruden regime, Carr has improved his skills notably and compiled back-to-back 4,000-yard campaigns, but he's still more of a game manager (fantasy QB14-QB20 during the last six seasons) than a gunslinger. Although Carr racked up new career highs in passing yards and completion percentage this past season, he punched out as just the fantasy QB16. Under Gruden, Carr has averaged 253.2 passing yards, 1.3 touchdown strikes and 1.1 picks per game (32 contests played) which are game-manager numbers. It looks like the Raiders want Carr to elevate himself from game manager to gunslinger. His top targets from 2019, Darren Waller, Tyrell Williams and Hunter Renfrow, will suit up with some new faces: lightning-quick rookie 12th overall selection Henry Ruggs, rookie third-rounder Bryan Edwards and speedy rookie third-rounder Lynn Edwards (running back/wideout hybrid), along with veterans Nelson Agholor and Jason Witten. With Marcus Mariota looking over Carr's shoulder, maybe his transition to gunslinger will start right away - if it's going to happen at all. Williams, a capable deep threat, was limited by foot problems last season. Maybe the Carr-to-Williams connection heats up, and maybe Ruggs can contribute immediately. Realistically, it's going to take some time for the rookies to get acclimated to the NFL. Maybe Carr will surprise us, but consider him a garden variety No. 2 fantasy quarterback unless he proves otherwise.

Passing: 1484 Yards, 11 TD, 2 INT.
Rushing: 54 Yards, 0 TD.
