The Las Vegas Raiders have designated QB Marcus Mariota for return off IR. They’ll now have 21 days to activate him onto the 53-man roster. (Vic Tafur on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Mariota started the season on IR, but will be back with the team by Week 10 based on the 21-day window to elevate him to the 53-man roster. Derek Carr has played well enough to hang on to the starting job, and unless something changes, expect to see Carr as the starter for the remainder of the season. Mariota is one of the better backup quarterbacks in the NFL, and should be stashed in dynasty leagues in case something were to happen to Carr.
