WR Austin Carr - New Orleans Saints
|6-0, 202||Born: 12-25-1993||College: Northwestern||Drafted: ---|
2018 Week 11 vs PHI (2 / 1 / 3 / 1 rec)
It may have only been 1 catch and 3 yards, but it was a touchdown for Carr. It was his first touchdown of the season as well as the first of his career. It capped off an 86-yard drive for the Saints and was their first touchdown of the game. Carr ran a short out from a bunch formation and Brees fired a bullet right to his chest for the score. There were 2 defenders in the area and only a small window, but Brees made the perfect throw. Carr faces a lot of competition for targets and is not expected to make much of a difference the rest of the season, but he had his moment this week.
2018 Week 12 vs ATL (1 / 1 / 12 / 1 rec)
After scoring his first career touchdown last week, Carr added another score this week on a 12-yard reception. He chipped off the defensive end and leaked out into the flat. There was no defender within 10 yards of him as the defense had keyed in on Thomas and the run fake on the inside. This will be one of the easiest touchdowns Carr will score in his career. He did not have any other targets in the game but made the most of the one he had. Carr has been used in primarily blocking situations for most of the season and now he is leaking out into the pass game on play fakes. There is no telling if he will continue to see an increase in usage as the Saints seem to change their game plan every week.
