2. Derek Carr, Saints

Here, we come to the best of the worst. New Orleans Saints quarterback Derek Carr has not played great football this season, but he has not looked as bad as both Ridder and Young. The Saints are also still a good football team at 2-2. They have the 11th overall defense in football in terms of yards allowed, and have been good against both the run and the pass.

Carr has done enough to stay in games, outside of his most recent outing in Week 4. He probably shouldn't have played in Week 4, and instead would have benefited from resting that shoulder injury. His performance clearly shed light on the fact that he was no where near healthy enough to play in an effective manner.

On the season, Carr has gone 80-of-124 passing for 763 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. He is completing 64.5 percent of his passes thus far and owns a fairly mediocre rating of just 80.1.

This weekend, Carr and the Saints face a Patriots team that has the league's 10th-best passing defense on the year.
