Saints' Austin Carr: Loses playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr, who was a healthy scratch in Week 17, finished the season with nine catches on 14 targets for 97 yards and two touchdowns.

The second-year pro out of Northwestern played in 14 games for the Saints in 2018. Carr was actually named a starter for opening week, but he typically drew the short end of the playing time split. In fact, Carr averaged just 17 snaps per game following the activation of fellow slot receiver Keith Kirkwood in Week 10. Even when he saw the field, however, Carr offered little as a receiver. A solid blocker, Carr will likely continue to see snaps in the playoffs and possibly into next season, but he is unlikely to emerge as much of a fantasy option.

Saints' Austin Carr: Healthy scratch against Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr is listed as a healthy scratch for Monday night's game against the Panthers, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.

The second-year wideout out of Northwestern has been active for every game this season, so coach Sean Payton's decision to sit Carr for Monday night's tilt with the Panthers comes as a surprise. Carr has recorded nine receptions for 97 yards and two touchdowns this season. Offensive lineman Will Clapp is set to be active for the first time this season in Carr's absence.

Saints' Austin Carr: Another touchdown in Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr caught one pass for a 12-yard touchdown in Thursday night's win over the Falcons.

Carr made his only target count, hauling in a wide-open second-quarter touchdown on Thanksgiving Day. The Northwestern product has now scored in back-to-back weeks -- the first two touchdowns of his NFL career -- but he played just 18 offensive snaps against the Falcons. Meanwhile, rookie slot receiver Keith Kirkwood saw 30 snaps and also caught a touchdown. With Carr losing the playing-time battle to Kirkwood, he is still probably belongs on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues.

Saints' Austin Carr: First career touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr caught one pass for a three-yard touchdown in Sunday's win against the Eagles. He was targeted twice.

Carr split time out of the slot with rookie Keith Kirkwood, though the latter was far more effective with three catches on five targets. Still, it was Carr who got the touchdown -- the first of his career. The former Northwestern Wildcat's second target was also of the end-zone variety but the ball was just over his head. Despite the score, Carr is still likely not worth owning in most leagues, as he has a mere eight catches all season.

Saints' Austin Carr: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Carr appears to have fully recovered from a knee injury sustained during a Week 10 win over the Bengals. Barring any setbacks, the starting punt returner is on track to suit up against the Eagles on Sunday. With Dez Bryant (Achilles) and Cameron Meredith (knee) both having been placed on injured reserve, Carr is listed as the No. 3 wideout on New Orleans' depth chart and could be in line for a key offensive role going forward. Carr will compete with fellow depth receivers Brandon Marshall and Keith Kirkwood for limited targets.
