Quarterback

Derek Carr: Carr posted his fourth QB1 scoring week of the season last weekend with a QB9 scoring week (18.4 points), but it was a missed opportunity for a big game. Carr was 16-of-21 for 223 yards with two touchdowns in the first half last week but then disappeared to close the game, completing 5-of-15 passes for 36 yards in the second half. 

We have seen the Raiders’ offense run completely hot or completely cold all season. At their best, they can score with the league’s best teams and then just evaporate into the worst offense in the league on a moment’s notice.

Carr is more of a high-end QB2 than someone to lean on as a QB1. Despite the state of the offense, the Colts’ defense is not quiet quitting. The Colts have allowed just two top-10 scoring weeks all season to an opposing passer for fantasy, and both of those games came attached to rushing touchdowns. 

The Colts are not necessarily an avoid, either. They are 18th in the league in points allowed per attempt (0.411), but since the opposing team has consistently played from ahead against them, the Colts are allowing just 12.1 passing points per game (11th) because they face the third-fewest pass attempts per game (29.4).
