Derek Carr Will Be Questionable In Week 4

Friday, September 29, 3:10 PM

New Orleans Saints head coach Dennis Allen said that quarterback Derek Carr (shoulder) will be questionable for Week 4 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday. According to NewOrleans.Football's Nick Underhill, Carr has a very real shot at playing after looking sharp while throwing passes at Friday's practice. He led the first-team offense and had good velocity on his throws despite suffering an AC joint sprain in the Week 3 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Underhill writes he didn't see anything to suggest that Carr was limited. The 32-year-old will probably be a game-time decision on Sunday morning and won't be a suggested QB1 streamer if he does end up playing. If the Saints hold him out, veteran Jameis Winston would be making his first start of the year.

Baker Mayfield Has Tough Challenge In Week 4

Thursday, September 28, 6:22 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Baker Mayfield was unable to find much success last week during the loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. It's unlikely going to get easier for Mayfield against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4. A defensive unit that has done a nice job of holding opposing quarterbacks in check early in the season. It's worth noting that Mayfield has been able to limit the turnovers, which is good to see. However, Mayfield remains a low-end QB2 for this upcoming matchup.
