Raiders | Derek Carr talks up Jordy Nelson

Fri, 08 Jun 2018 21:10:44 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr praised WR Jordy Nelson's attention to detail and said he understands why Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers loved throwing to Nelson.

Fantasy Tip: If Nelson can continue to develop a chemistry with Carr, there is no reason he can't provide WR3 production in 2018.

Raiders | Oakland has been eyeing Martavis Bryant

Thu, 26 Apr 2018 20:07:46 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant can be a "dynamic receiver" for quarterback Derek Carr, according to general manager Reggie McKenzie, and McKenzie said Oakland had been working on trading for Bryant for some time.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has plenty of upside because of his big-play ability, but he has to stay on the field and show some consistency. He is worth taking a chance on as a WR4.

Raiders | Derek Carr was bothered by back

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 11:17:27 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) admitted that a back injury suffered in Week 4 did impact his play throughout the course of the season. "Injuries will never be something I talk about, especially during the season, but since it's after the season, the [back issue] was one of those things that was there," Carr said. The fourth-year quarterback suffered three transverse process fractures and said he wanted to deal with the injury instead of using it as an excuse.

Fantasy Tip: Carr's determination and toughness are admirable, but one wonders just how much the injury affected his play. At full health Carr is no more than a fringe QB1, but drafting him as a QB2 is on the safe side.

Raiders | Greg Olson raves about Derek Carr

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 10:20:56 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr was given high praise from new offensive coordinator Greg Olson. Olson opined that Carr's football intelligence is "off the charts" and spoke highly of the quarterback's physical talent, accuracy and quick release.

Fantasy Tip: It's encouraging for an offensive coordinator to speak fondly of his quarterback, but Carr has largely disappointed in fantasy circles, particularly in 2017. There is a good opportunity for a fresh start, though, with a new coaching staff. Oakland still has one of the best offensive lines and receiver duos in football. For now, view Carr as a high-end QB2 with QB1 upside.

Raiders | Issues brewing for Derek Carr?

Thu, 04 Jan 2018 18:27:22 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr's personality may not mesh well with Jon Gruden's style if Gruden becomes the head coach of the Oakland Raiders, according to a league source.

Fantasy Tip: Carr took a step backwards in 2017 and was one of the bigger disappointments in fantasy circles. If Gruden does become the coach, his tough love could bring out the best in Carr. He shouldn't be drafted as a QB1 next year, but Carr could be a nice buy-low candidate as a QB2.

Raiders | Derek Carr has ugly outing on MNF

Mon, 25 Dec 2017 21:12:03 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 15-of-29 passes for 147 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in the team's Week 16 defeat Monday, Dec. 25, versus the Philadelphia Eagles. He also added three rushing yards on three carries.

Fantasy Tip: Yikes, this was arguably Carr's worst performance of the entire season, and it couldn't come at a worse time for owners who were electing to start him in fantasy championship matchups. Even with an upgrade in Oakland's running game this year, Carr took a notable step backwards after two terrific campaigns that led to a lot of people backing him. He certainly won't be a recommended QB1 going into 2018.

Raiders | Derek Carr could break out in Week 14

Sat, 09 Dec 2017 20:06:08 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr faces the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14, and the first time these teams met this season, Carr threw for a season-high 417 yards and three touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a disappointing season for Carr overall, but a rematch with Kansas City could be just what the doctor ordered. The Chiefs have allowed the fifth-most passing yards this year, and Carr could be in line for another QB1 performance against his division rival.

Raiders | Derek Carr passes for 287 yards, TD

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 20:20:22 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 22 of his 36 pass attempts for 287 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 13 game against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Carr has thrown at least one touchdown in each of his 11 games, but he has one or fewer TD strikes in seven of the past nine outings. His yardage totals have kept him in the mix as a low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.
