Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Coming into last week, there were certainly questions surrounding this Raiders offense and how they would respond with Jon Gruden out of the picture. We didn't know what the play-calling would look like or what the morale of the team would be, but they responded in a big way and Carr captained this team to a resounding victory. Carr had a fantastic individual performance as he threw for 341 yards and two touchdowns to zero interceptions. He continued to push the ball deep downfield - as evidenced by his 11.8 ADOT - and he's now second in the league in passing yards with 1,946, only behind Tom Brady. The Eagles defense is middle-of-the-pack from a fantasy points allowed perspective to opposing QBs, but they've benefited from playing some mediocre QBs this season. In the two games Philadelphia has played against Patrick Mahomes and Dak Prescott, they've been gashed for 505 combined yards and eight touchdowns. Carr's shown that he belongs closer to that tier versus Sam Darnold and Jimmy Garoppolo, so we should see enough production here to view Carr as a high-end QB2 in week seven. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Eagles are 10th against fantasy quarterbacks and Carr had one of his best games of the season last week against a tough Broncos D. Carr should be a low-end QB1 at home.
