2019 Fantasy Outlook
Last year, in Carr's second NFL season since joining New Orleans as an undrafted free agent out of Northwestern, the 6-foot-1 wideout registered the first two starts of his career. In those two contests, he compiled a combined two receptions for 20 yards with zero touchdowns. Each of his receiving scores came in games in which he did not start -- Nov. 18 and Nov. 22 against the Eagles and Falcons, two of the bottom six pass defenses last year. He fielded 23 percent of the Saints' offensive snaps overall, and may remain near that number with the team having retained mostly the same receiving corps from 2018. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a three-year, $1.67 million contract with the Patriots in April of 2017. Waived by the Patriots in September of 2017. Claimed off waivers by the Saints in September of 2017.
Loses playing time
WRNew Orleans Saints
January 7, 2019
Carr, who was a healthy scratch in Week 17, finished the season with nine catches on 14 targets for 97 yards and two touchdowns.
ANALYSIS
The second-year pro out of Northwestern played in 14 games for the Saints in 2018. Carr was actually named a starter for opening week, but he typically drew the short end of the playing time split. In fact, Carr averaged just 17 snaps per game following the activation of fellow slot receiver Keith Kirkwood in Week 10. Even when he saw the field, however, Carr offered little as a receiver. A solid blocker, Carr will likely continue to see snaps in the playoffs and possibly into next season, but he is unlikely to emerge as much of a fantasy option.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
After going undrafted out of Northwestern in 2017, Carr cracked the Saints' Week 1 roster last season, but was only active for two games during his rookie campaign. However, with the Saints cutting ties with both of their top two slot options from last season in Brandon Coleman and Willie Snead, the door is open for Carr to take on a more meaningful role with the first-team offense. Carr, who logged 90 catches for 1,247 yards and 12 TDs in 13 games as a senior at Northwestern last season, profiles as a slot receiver with solid size (6-1, 194 pounds) and quickness.
Carr, who logged 90 catches for 1,247 yards and 12 TDs in 13 games as a senior at Northwestern last season, profiles as a slot receiver with solid size (6-1, 194 pounds) and quickness. After being waived by the Patriots in final roster cut-downs, Carr was claimed on waivers by the Saints. He'll need to to learn the offense, but any role in a Drew Brees-helmed offense can potentiality yield fantasy dividends.
