9. Cornerback Brandon Carr, Dallas Cowboys
What makes him a player to watch? Carr was burned by the Detroit Lions’ wideout Calvin Johnson last Sunday to the tune of 329 receiving yards and a score. Megatron had 14 catches on 16 targets with Carr draped all over him. It was a weird twist of fate as Carr could have been named MVP of the previous two games, both lopsided victories over NFC East rivals Washington and Philadelphia. The veteran corner will be looking to exact his revenge against one of the weakest receiver corps in the NFL. Their only weapon being free agent signee Greg Jennings. Carr should have no problem defending against him and the Vikings’ anemic passing game.
