Fantasy Impact:

This is a best-case scenario for the New Orleans Saints, with the initial fear being that Carr suffered a major injury. The shoulder sprain could hold him out for a few weeks with the backup options for the Saints being Jameis Winston (16 attempts in relief on Sunday) and the positionless Taysom Hill. Carr's situation should be monitored for all Saints fantasy assets.
