Derek Carr Week 2 Outlook - Raiders at Steelers

By Kyle Yates (FantasyPros), Fri, Sep 17th 2021, 3:25pm EDT

It wasn't looking pretty for Derek Carr throughout the majority of Monday night's game, but he was able to finally settle in, shake off the rust, and lead the Raiders to an unexpected win in their new stadium. Carr was consistently pushing the ball downfield and had an ADOT of 10.1, which was tied for the 5th most at the QB position (with a minimum of 20 pass attempts) in week one. With other receiving options in this offense stepping up late in the game, Carr was more willing to distribute the ball evenly and let the offense come to him rather than trying to force the issue and it worked. With that being said, Carr's got another tough matchup this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers defense that just stonewalled the reigning fantasy football QB1, Josh Allen. Carr's a fine option in SF leagues as a second QB, but he's not on the streaming radar this week simply because of the matchup. There are better ones out there to target.
