Description: Carr went 5-for-13 for 67 yards after replacing Alex Smith (left shoulder) on Sunday against Carolina.
Insight: If Smith can't go in Week 8 against Denver, Carr would get the start. That's a scary thought if you own any of the 49ers' receivers. (

Description: Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports the Cardinals could be interested in signing Carr, who is scheduled to become a free agent.
Insight: Carr is unlikely to compete with Matt Leinart for the starting job if he is brought aboard. The job is almost certainly Leinart's to lose no matter who Arizona brings in during the offseason. (

Description: Despite allowing Carr to hit the open market, the Giants re-signed him before free agency got too far along.
Insight: The team must have liked his work as Eli Manning's backup last season. Good for Carr that he's wanted, but he has no fantasy value. (

Description: Carr was efficient against the front line Viking defense. He went 8-for-11 with a TD and 110 yards.
Insight: If something should happen to Eli Manning, the Giants have another top drafted QB waiting in the wings. Carr has shown flashes in the past, so this relief appearance isn't anything to get excited about. (
