Derek Carr Note

Making his debut as a Saint, Carr gets a juicy matchup against a flammable Titans pass defense that gave up 19.0 fantasy points per game to opposing QBs last year and ranked 28th in DVOA. Granted, Tennessee had major injury problems this year, but it's nevertheless hard to see this as anything but a good matchup for Carr. As of now, oft-injured Saints WR Michael Thomas is healthy, so Carr will have a nice pair of pass catchers in Thomas and talented second-year man Chris Olave. Carr has sneaky appeal in redraft leagues and DFS for Week 1. Consider him a high-end QB2.
