Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
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.
