Matt Ryan vs. Carolina Panthers

Listed as a sit ’em last week, Ryan’s struggled in Philadelphia with a mere 8.84 fantasy points. Next up is a home date with the Panthers, who were tough on home quarterbacks last season. Also, Ryan has failed to score more than 17 fantasy points in seven of his last eight games on his home turf. I’d beware Ryan, fantasy owners.

Derek Carr vs. Denver Broncos

Carr has been a regular fade during his career when facing the Broncos on their home field, and this season should be no different. In three career starts in Denver, he’s averaged a mere 145.3 passing yards and scored a combined 29.6 fantasy points or 9.86 points per game. Even in two-quarterback leagues, Carr is a real risk.
