Sun, 29 Nov 2015 10:42:51 -0800

Washington Redskins TE Derek Carrier (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the team's Week 12 game and is considered questionable to return.

Redskins | Derek Carrier fills void

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 20:26:53 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Derek Carrier posted two receptions for 27 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Carrier ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) was filling in for the injured Jordan Reed and he did a decent job by finding the end zone and scoring. Still, he is a risky play in FantasyScore going forward even if he starts.

Redskins | Derek Carrier could shine in relief

Sat, 10 Oct 2015 19:01:29 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Derek Carrier is expected to start against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 5 in place of the TE Jordan Reed (concussion), and the Redskins rank second in the NFL in tight end receptions this season.

Fantasy Tip: Kirk Cousins ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has leaned on his tight ends frequently dating back to last season when the Redskins ranked fifth in tight end receptions. Carrier ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) could be the beneficiary and is a potential sneaky source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

49ers | Derek Carrier making progress

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 15:19:45 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Derek Carrier is making progress as a hybrid athletic tight end, according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman. "He played against the Rams last year, held his own pretty good. So, he's making progress... But the fundamentals, the technique, he's made worlds of progress... He's more than a leaper. This isn't broad jumping. There are a lot of things that go into that position. But, he has good range though," Roman said.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for Carrier, he's buried on the depth chart at his position and probably won't see many snaps unless there are a few injuries.
