We have made it to Week 15 and your league is either on the cusp of the playoffs or you are in them already. Either way, you need to be making the best lineup decisions possible for your pursuit of championship gold. Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders take on the Cleveland Browns on Saturday, December 18th. Yes, you read that correctly, a Saturday game.

Carr has been fine this season for the Raiders, but he is having another season for fantasy where the players around him are the value and he gets left behind. Despite him contributing to the value of both Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller, Carr remains a QB2-at best on a weekly basis. His matchup with the Browns this week doesn’t provide much upside.

Fantasy Football analysis: Raiders QB Derek Carr

The Browns defense is giving up middle-of-the-road numbers to opposing quarterbacks in fantasy. This isn’t a bad matchup for Carr, there is just likely a better matchup available for your team. Hopefully, you don’t have to rely on Carr this week.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

SIT Carr.
