RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Carr's third season in Dallas was a disappointment, and while he started all 16 games he failed to record an interception for the first time in his seven-year career. His cap hit all but ensures he'll return in 2015, but if Carr's performance doesn't rebound it could be his last season with the Cowboys.

2014

Starting CB had the best statistical season of his career in 2013, recording 71 tackles and three INTs (including one returned for a touchdown). At 28, and heading into his seventh season in the NFL, Carr should still be effective but the Cowboys' version of the Cover-2 defense typically doesn't allow cornerbacks to put up huge IDP numbers.

2013

Carr had a solid first season in Dallas, recording 53 tackles and three INTs, including his first career return for a touchdown. He won't make a big IDP impact, but he's an important part of the Cowboys' team defense.

2012

Carr joins the Cowboys secondary on a big free agent deal after a career-high four INTs, with a career-low 45 tackles, with the Chiefs in 2011. He immediately became Dallas' best cornerback and as such could face some tough matchups in the NFC East. While he likely won't register big IDP numbers he should help stabilize the back end of the DAL team defense.

2011

As a starting cornerback, Carr's tackle totals have declined each of his three seasons. Combine that fact with his lack of playmaking and that equals a low-end IDP with minimal upside.

2010

Carr jumped straight from Division II Grand Valley State to a spot atop the Chiefs' depth chart and has started all 32 games since being drafted in 2008. His 62 tackles, 19 passes defended and one interception last season were enough to make him a top-30 fantasy cornerback, and he'll likely land in that range again in 2010.

2009

Carr made the transition from Division II Grand Valley State about as well as anybody with the Chiefs could have expected last season. He started all 16 games and finished with 73 tackles, emerging as a useful IDP in leagues that require cornerbacks. He should have similar value in 2009, although there is some concern that his tackle totals will suffer in new defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast's system.
