Fantasy Files: Derek Carr is a better real life quarterback than you think

Host Ian Hartitz breaks down Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr's fantasy value ahead of the 2021 season. Ian is among those who have slandered Carr over the years; just realize in recent history he's been nothing other than a great real life quarterback. This is reflected by his 2020 film and analytics alike. The problem: Carr has been more sensitive to pressure than most, and the 2021 version of this offensive line seems poised to take a step back. Throw in a good, albeit not great, group of wide receivers, and you have an offense that might take a step back from their finish as the league's 10th-ranked scoring unit. Ian closes out the podcast with his final feelings on Carr's potential to take a Ryan Tannehill-esque eighth-year leap in 2021.
