Don't look now, but Derek Carr has over 800 passing yards on the season through two games. If he keeps up his current pace, he'll finish with 6,944 passing yards on the season. While we know that's not going to happen, it illustrates that Carr's performing incredibly well and he's becoming a reliable fantasy asset. He's looking for the deep shots downfield and is looking like a very different QB than what we have seen in previous years, which means that we need to adjust how we view him for fantasy purposes. Looking ahead to week three though, the Miami Dolphins have been able to keep Mac Jones and Josh Allen in check through the first two games, so we shouldn't expect crazy things from Carr in this one. However, if the passing volume is going to be as high as it's been through the first two weeks (46.5 pass attempts/game), he should provide a safe floor for fantasy managers. While he's reportedly a little banged up, he can be viewed as a mid-range QB2 in week three.Baker Mayfield was incredibly efficient last week - 90.5% completion rate - in a nicer matchup against the Houston Texans, but he has a tougher task this week against the Bears. Chicago is a top-10 unit in Total DVOA so far this season and they're coming off a game in which they forced Joe Burrow into three interceptions. Mayfield just watched one of his most reliable receivers (Jarvis Landry) be put on Injured Reserve this week too, so the stars aren't exactly aligning for Mayfield from a fantasy perspective and it's probably best to adjust our expectations for him as a result. Mayfield should be viewed as a low-end QB2 this week.

 Though Cleveland may have an easier time throwing the ball than running it against the Bears, it's tough to trust Mayfield as more than a desperation 2QB league play given his decimated receiving corps and team focus on the run game.

With 817 passing yards through two weeks, Carr leads the league in that category by 128 yards. Even with Darren Waller having a relatively quiet day in the Raiders' Week 2 road win over the Steelers, Carr threw for 382 yards and two touchdowns. He's completely dialed in right now, and it's been fun to watch. As good as Carr has been, he's "only" QB9 in fantasy scoring. So it goes with non-running quarterbacks, who have lower ceilings than their speedier counterparts. Despite the flames emanating from Carr's right arm, I have him ranked QB16 for Week 3. The Dolphins have some high-quality defensive backs, including ace CB Xavien Howard, and I don't know if Miami is going to generate enough offense with Jacoby Brissett to force the Raiders into an OK Corral game script where points pile up quickly. This feels like a shy-away spot.Mayfield is doing a fine job of running Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski's offense, but that's cold comfort to anyone seeking to derive fantasy value from Mayfield, who ranks QB20 in fantasy scoring. The Browns have a league-high seven TD runs but only one TD pass. Mayfield is completing 81.6% of his throws and averaging 10.9 yards per attempt, but only the Saints have attempted fewer than the 49 passes the Browns have thrown. Mayfield will be going up against one of the weaker cornerback groups in the league when the Browns take on the Bears. The thing is, with Jarvis Landry sidelined by an MCL injury and Odell Beckham only just now making his return from the torn ACL he sustained last year, the Browns might not be able to take full advantage. Despite the appealing matchup, I have Mayfield ranked QB19 for the week.

Despite playing the Ravens and at the Steelers to open the season, Carr is the 9th ranked fantasy quarterback with 24.59 fantasy points per game. Carr should be a QB1 this week at home, even against a tough Dolphins D. He does have an ankle injury that will be a situation to monitor.The Bears are 14th against fantasy quarterbacks, Mayfield is a low-upside QB2 on a team that runs the ball well, but does not pass the ball a ton.
