Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Carr's been solid for fantasy football recently. If you've taken the shot on him in your starting lineup, he hasn't crushed your lineup and he's also delivered some top-tier performances. Over his past three games, Carr has finished as the QB16, QB9, and QB12. Now, Carr gets to take on the Cleveland Browns defense that is currently the 7th easiest matchup for opposing fantasy QBs. Carr lands squarely in the streaming conversation this week and should be viewed as a high-end QB2 with upside. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Browns are just 29th against fantasy quarterbacks, Carr should be a QB2 on the road this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He continued his hot start to the season against the Bucs last week, as he's currently sitting as the No. 14 quarterback in points per game. He's now totaled at least 19.3 fantasy points in three straight games, and he was being consistent even before then. Fun fact: Week 7 was the first time this season where Carr completed fewer than 71 percent of his passes. He's hit at least 7.1 yards per attempt in every game, so despite the lack of rushing upside, he's delivering fantasy relevant performances. The Browns have allowed 107.5 fantasy points per game through seven games, which ranks as the fourth-highest number in football. Almost all the production they've allowed to quarterbacks has been through the air, too, as they've allowed the second-most fantasy points through the air alone. The volume helps, as they've faced the second-most pass attempts on the season. Their opponents have averaged a robust 40.7 pass attempts per game, so volume has been carrying what's been slightly above average efficiency for their opponents (Browns are 11th in points per actual pass attempt). 64.1 percent of plays against the Browns have been pass plays, which ranks as the third-highest mark in the game. So, if Carr gets the volume that most quarterback have against the Browns and continues his efficient ways, he should be throwing for close to 300 yards this week, and he's thrown multiple touchdowns in five straight games. Carr is a better streamer than you might think.
