Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Carr has a fantastic matchup against the Falcons this week. Atlanta gives up the most fantasy points per game to opposing signal-callers, and Carr rebounded from his string of underperformances in his Week 11 battle with the Chiefs. Carr is now averaging 17.3 points per game on the year, but he's posted 20-plus points five times, and he should have another higher-end result this week. He's a fantastic streamer and should finish as a low-end QB1/high-end QB2.The Titans have a tough matchup with the Colts this week. The last time these two teams faced off, Tannehill scraped together a measly 10.8 points, as Tennessee relied on Derrick Henry to do most of the scoring. Tannehill shouldn't be on your radar as a QB1, but he's not a bad option at QB2. Just don't expect him to do much better than how he did two weeks ago -- the Colts allow the third-fewest points per game to opposing signal-callers.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He continued his efficient ways against the Chiefs last week, throwing for 275 yards and three touchdowns on just 31 pass attempts. On the year, he's completed 69.7 percent of his passes for 7.7 yards per attempt, and a 19:3 TD to INT ratio. The downside is that he's thrown more than 32 passes just three times all year. I'm expecting him to get to that mark this week against the Falcons, who've seen 37.3 pass attempts per game. They are allowing a robust 107.0 PPR points per game to their opponents, which ranks second to only the Seahawks. The only reason they don't allow as many points as the Seahawks do is due to their opponents running just 63.4 plays, not the 72.1 plays the Seahawks face. From an efficiency standpoint, they've allowed 1.68 PPR points per play, which is six percent higher than any other team. The NFL is a hard game to predict because there are so many small details, but when you see that type of gap, it stands out. Quarterbacks have outscored running backs by 5.03 fantasy points in PPR formats against the Falcons. Not one other team in the NFL can say that quarterbacks outscore running backs against them. The Raiders should find some consistency through the air, as Falcons opponents have averaged 8.41 yards per attempt, which ranks as the second-highest mark in the league. By comparison, Russell Wilson is averaging 8.25 yards per attempt this year. If you remove rushing production allowed to quarterbacks, the Falcons have allowed more fantasy points through the air than any other team in the league, which is good for the immobile Carr. The 0.55 fantasy points per actual pass attempt ranks as the second-most behind only the Cowboys. When you add in his 29.3-point team-implied total, he looks like a great streamer in the low-end QB1/high-end QB2 range.Week 11 reminded us of who Tannehill has been since taking over as the starter for the Titans. Even in a brutal matchup, he goes out and produces fantasy numbers. He finished with 21.86 fantasy points against the Ravens, and that's despite his receivers dropping a few balls early on in that contest. To be fair, the Ravens did completely sell out to try and stop the run, but kudos to Tannehill for taking advantage of that. Despite getting punched in the mouth by Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense last week, the Colts have still allowed just the third-fewest fantasy points per game this year. It surely doesn't help that their opponents have run just 59.8 plays per game. If you look at fantasy points per actual pass attempt (no rushing), the Colts have allowed the second-fewest points per attempt to quarterbacks, behind only the Rams. Knowing the Titans pass the ball just 51.3 percent of the time, that's a real issue. So, when you see Tannehill's low numbers from their first meeting (27 attempts, 147 yards, one touchdown), you shouldn't be all that shocked. They're not unbeatable, though. There have now been three quarterbacks who've thrown for 300-plus yards against them, and three quarterbacks who've thrown for three touchdowns. This game will be in a dome, which certainly helps this time of the year. He's certainly not a must-play in this game, but he's also not someone you must avoid as a mid-tier QB2.
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Atlanta has been a matchup all fantasy managers circle on the calendar, and QBs who face the Falcons generally fare very well. Carr has been as steady as they come in 2020, and he should be recognized as a top-10 play in Week 12. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Carr should light up a Falcons D that is 32nd against fantasy quarterbacks. He is an excellent streaming option. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Tannehill's had a brutal stretch of matchups here recently and it continues yet again with the Colts defense that held him in check just a couple of weeks ago. Tannehill can be viewed as a mid-range QB2 this week.
