Derek Carr goes over 300 yards

Saints QB Derek Carr went 23-of-33 passing for 305 yards, 1 TD, and 1 INT in Sunday's narrow victory over the Titans. He took 4 sacks but otherwise fared well against a Tennessee pass defense that looks similarly soft to last year's Carr spread targets among his top three wideouts: Chris Olave (10), Michael Thomas (8), and Rashid Shaheed (6). TE Juwan Johnson (5) was the only other Saint to see more than 2 looks. Carr could be a streaming-level option in Week 2 against a Carolina defense that ranked just behind the Titans as a QB-scoring matchup in 2022. A Week 3 trip to Green Bay looks potentially tougher.
