Derek Carr restructures contract for 2024

Derek Carr has restructured his contract with the New Orleans Saints as they look for ways to get under the salary cap. The move is expected to save the team $23 million.

Fantasy Impact

The Saints are among the top teams in terms of being over the salary cap. Thankfully, Carr taking a large chunk of his money as a signing bonus gives them more room to work. As for his fantasy value, Carr is all but locked in as their starter for the next several years, since releasing him would be a massive dead cap hit and it’s unlikely he will be traded with the size of contract he has. He’ll likely be a QB2 like he has been for his entire career, steady enough to start in 2QB and stream in 1QB formats, but not worth rostering in single QB formats unless it is a deep league.

Derek Carr throws over 300 yards in loss to Rams

Derek Carr completed 27-of-40 passes for 319 yards, three touchdowns, and a pick in the Saints' 30-22 loss to the Rams on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact

Carr has put together a string of good games over the last several weeks. He's now thrown at least two touchdowns in each of the past two games and has been accurate in that stretch. It's definitely a boost for fantasy managers but it's hard to imagine starting him unless you are in a superflex or 2QB league given his tendency of inconsistent play.
