Derek Carrier returns, catches one pass in win over Bears

Derek Carrier, who missed the Monday night game against Dallas, returned to action Sunday against Chicago and caught one pass for seven yards before leaving with a knee injury in the Redskins' 24-21 win over the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Carrier has not caught more than two passes in a game since Week 6 and was brought in to be an insurance policy for Jordan Reed, but it's been the former 49er that cannot stay healthy while Reed has delivered a Pro Bowl caliber season. Carrier does not get enough usage to merit a start in even the deepest of leagues.

Derek Carrier questionable

Dealing with ankle and Achilles injuries, Carrier is questionable for the upcoming game against the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Carrier has no fantasy value based on playing time and performance.

Derek Carrier hauls in one catch Sunday

Derek Carrier caught one pass for six yards in the Redskins win over the Giants Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Carrier is not fantasy relevant, but is almost a handcuff for the oft-injured Jordan Reed. Carrier has caught passes in eight of 11 games this year.

Derek Carrier catches two passes Sunday

Derek Carrier caught two of his three targets for only seven yards on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Carrier is a secondary option at tight end on a team that sputters on offense with inconsistent play at quarterback. As long as Jordan Reed is healthy, he will be an afterthought in fantasy.

Derek Carrier gets in on the action Sunday

Derek Carrier hauled in his only target on Sunday, a 14-yard reception from Kirk Cousins in the 47-14 win over New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact

Carrier does not get many chances, but if something were to happen to Reed, he is the next man up.
