Derek Carr manages to win without top two WRs

Derek Carr completed 22-of-36 passes for 287 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 13 win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact:

Derek Carr deserves a lot of credit for leading the Raiders to a win without their top two wide receivers, Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree. It wasn't an overly impressive performance by Carr but he was able to lean on Marshawn Lynch and play turnover free football. Carr will have one and most likely both WRs back next week for a pivotal division game against the Chiefs. The Chiefs defense was just ripped to shreds by journeyman Josh McCown so Carr should be able to find success if his top weapons are back on the field.
