Russell Wilson A QB1 Streamer Against Bears

Thursday, September 28, 11:48 PM

All signs are pointing to Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson having a third straight strong game for fantasy managers in an excellent matchup in Week 4 on the road in Chicago against the 0-3 Bears. Not only has Wilson had back-to-back 300-yard games, but he's thrown six touchdowns to only two interceptions through the first three weeks of 2023 under new head coach Sean Payton. He's the QB9 in fantasy heading into this Sunday's game against a Bears defense that is allowing the third-most passing yards per game (285.7) and the fifth-most fantasy points per game (25.6) to signal-callers. And as long as the Broncos defense continues to let opposing teams score at will, the Broncos will probably need to keep pushing the ball down the field through the air with Wilson's arm. Russ is absolutely on the QB1 streaming radar this week.

Derek Carr Likely To Be Game-Time Decision

Saturday, September 30, 11:32 AM

New Orleans Saints quarterback Derek Carr (shoulder) wants to play in Week 4 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but it's likely going to come down to a game-time decision on Sunday, according to a source. He's likely 50-50 at this point. NewOrleans.Football's Nick Underhill points out that the Saints are already down an offensive lineman, so they need to be smart if Carr is banged up. The 32-year-old suffered an AC joint sprain in his right shoulder in the Week 3 loss to the Green Bay Packers, but he practiced on Friday and looked pretty good. The good news is fantasy managers will know on Sunday morning whether Carr will be active. If the Saints play it safe and hold him out, backup Jameis Winston will make his first start of 2023. Carr will be a QB2 in fantasy if he suits up.
