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. 
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.There's likely going to be a lot of drama surrounding the Bears quarterback position this week, and it's unlikely we get concrete news before this article comes out. If Trubisky is healthy enough to play, he should start, as the Bears have a built-in excuse to move on from Foles, who's been atrocious. In 34 quarters of play, Foles threw just 10 touchdowns and averaged just 6.0 yards per attempt. I'm not saying he's the only problem, but he's definitely not part of the solution. Trubisky at least offers mobility to evade pressure behind this horrendous offensive line. From what we know right now, it appears Trubisky will be the starter, so that's how we'll proceed. The Packers matchup has not been particularly kind to quarterbacks, as they've allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game to them. That's largely in part to do with the 59.7 plays per game they've faced. It also doesn't help quarterbacks when running backs stomp all over them, limiting them to just 32.0 pass attempts per game. When quarterbacks do throw, they have success against this defense, completing 67.8 percent of passes for 7.68 yards per attempt, while throwing a touchdown 5.31 percent of the time. Those are all above the league average. That's because the Packers have failed to generate any pressure up front, as they've averaged a league-low 24.3 percent pressure-rate. Still, it's the same scheme they ran last year that Trubisky struggled against, as he threw for 562 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the two games combined. Knowing Trubisky is still working through a shoulder injury, you have to assume his mobility will be limited, too. He's not a recommended streamer.
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.
