Play of the Day

Until Derek Carr’s DFS price catches up to his play level this season, I like him almost every week. He’s leading the NFL in passing yards and has impressed against two of the better teams and defenses in the league through two weeks. The Dolphins have a respectable defense, and neither Mac Jones nor Josh Allen carved them up in their first two games, but I like Carr to have a big day at home, especially if Josh Jacobs ends up not playing and Las Vegas is forced to rely even heavier on its passing game.

That’s all I’ve got for today. Good luck with your bets and matchups. I’ll talk to you on Tuesday.
