Marcus Mariota is not fantasy-relevant with Derek Carr starting in Las Vegas

The Raiders' starting QB is Derek Carr - not Marcus Mariota. As such, you shouldn't spend a draft pick on him in most leagues. Mariota is expected to earn 18% of his projected 13 fantasy points by rushing. While rushing is in his toolbox, it isn't really key to his fantasy value. With a projection of 0.7 interceptions compared to 1.0 passing touchdowns, he carries more interception risk than is entirely comforatable.
