Raiders | GM optimistic about Derek Carr extension

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 12:30:40 -0700

Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie is optimistic about getting an extension for QB Derek Carr done before training camp, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's Vic Tafur.

Fantasy Tip: Carr echoed similar thoughts last week, so this should get done in a timely fashion. The 26-year-old missed the tail end of last season with a broken fibula but has been a full participant at OTAs. At the moment, he slots in as a midrange fantasy QB1 with upside.

Raiders | Derek Carr fully participating in OTAs

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 18:22:55 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr's (leg) surgically-repaired right fibula is healed enough to the point that he's able to be a full participant in the team's offseason training program, which began Monday, April 17. "I've been running, jumping, throwing, cutting, everything," Carr said. "So I'm ready to rock. I'm ready to do absolutely everything. I did everything my teammates did today. I'll do everything my teammates will do tomorrow."

Fantasy Tip: Carr enjoyed an MVP-caliber season in 2017, registering 3,937 passing yards to go with a terrific 28/6 TD/INT ratio in 15 games. Overall, he finished with a shiny 96.7 QB rating, and it looks like he might be in a position to pick up where he left off based on his health going into OTAs. Carr looks like he can be fully trusted again as a QB1 entering the new campaign.

Raiders | Derek Carr extension coming?

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 11:11:14 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr may receive a contract extension this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: There's no question Carr deserves an extension after solidifying himself as the quarterback of the future for the Raiders. Extension or no extension, one can expect about 4,000 yards and 30 touchdowns from Carr this season, putting him in low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 territory.

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 17:41:48 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (leg) will be able to fully participate in the offseason workouts, according to general manager Reggie McKenzie.

Fantasy Tip: Carr could still be limited during offseason workouts even if he is 100 percent but should be a full participant during training camp. He finished the 2016 season with 3,937 yards and 28 touchdowns and can be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues next season.

Raiders | Derek Carr close to full health

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 11:19:01 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (leg) said he is close to fully recovered from the fractured fibula he suffered during the regular season, according to OT Donald Penn.

Fantasy Tip: Carr could be limited during some of the offseason workouts but should be a full participant when training camp starts. He was tied for seventh in the NFL with his 28 touchdowns and finished with 3,937 yards and only six interceptions. He will have several weapons to work with in the passing game and can be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Raiders | Derek Carr will have say in game planning

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 10:46:21 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr will have a voice in the game planning, according to new offensive coordinator Todd Downing, who was promoted from quarterbacks coach after former offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave's contract expired.

"There's been a lot made about his command at the line of scrimmage. There's certainly going to be opportunities for Derek to do that," Downing said. "... Where I see him needing a little bit more command is just being able to share his thoughts of game plans. Being a student of the game, as he already is, but vocalize what he likes and doesn't like. I think my relationship with him is something that's going to give him the opportunity to voice his opinions. I look forward to him really taking charge of expressing his thoughts on the offense."

Fantasy Tip: Carr was in the conversation of NFL MVP before breaking his leg, and with few changes expected in the system, there is little reason to doubt he can have another special season. Carr is a rock-solid No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

Raiders | Derek Carr extension important to Oakland

Tue, 24 Jan 2017 14:16:14 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr could be in negotiations for a contract extension in the near future, according to general manager Reggie McKenzie. Carr is heading into a contract year in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Carr is the future of the Raiders on offense, so it would behoove Oakland to sign him to a long-term deal sooner rather than later. As long as he fully recovers from his broken fibula, he'll be a QB1 option for 2017 fantasy drafts.

Raiders | Derek Carr extension on the agenda

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 07:43:12 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr will have discussions on a contract extension this offseason, according to general manager Reggie McKenzie. Carr will be in the final year of his contract in 2017, and there is no fifth-year option on him.

Fantasy Tip: Carr's numbers this season are pretty close to his sophomore season in 2015, but the exception is that he cut his interceptions in half. His completion percentage was up a tick to 63.8%. He'll be a midrange QB1 option in fantasy drafts.
