 Carr has had a couple down years since a breakout season in 2016, but the additions of WR Antonio Brown and WR Tyrell Williams should help his fantasy value in 2019. He could be a bounce-back candidate in 2019.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Gone are the days where Stafford will throw 650 and even 700 passes, so he won't be that top 5 fantasy QB, but there is plenty of reason to grab him as your second, or better yet, third QB in a SuperFlex league. He has two quality receivers and has no threat to lose his job. He has finished as a top 10 fantasy QB in three of the last four seasons after all.Carr has played with countless injuries behind oft-injured offensive lines and with horrid receivers for back to back years. The last time we saw him healthy, he actually finished in the top 10 fantasy QBs and was drafted as QB5 the following year. While that seems unattainable, it is entirely possible that the public is sleeping on a bounceback performer in Carr.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
2018 was a year to forget for Stafford, as he posted the worst numbers since his rookie season. He'd been about as predictable as they come for eight years, posting QB1 numbers at least 37.5 percent of the time in every season (while hitting 50-plus percent twice), but hit just 12.5 percent of the time in 2018. Did the new coaching staff hurt him that much? He's been a better fantasy quarterback throughout his career than Ben Roethlisberger has been, though you wouldn't know it by their draft positions.It's definitely not going to hurt Carr's chances by adding Antonio Brown to his stable of wide receivers, but we mustn't forget he had Amari Cooper for the first few years of his career. This isn't to say Cooper is on Brown's level, but more to do with Carr's inability to be consistent. He's performed at a top-12 level in just 29.5 percent of his 78 career games, which is worse than the career of DeShone Kizer and Blake Bortles. Even if he steps up his passing, his lack of rushing totals severely caps his upside. He's not a bad option in 2QB leagues for those who wait, as he has no chance of being benched, but stay away in standard leagues.
