Raiders | Derek Carr limited at OTAs

Tue, 26 May 2015 14:14:50 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (hand, arm) was limited during organized team activities Tuesday, May 26, and took snaps but did not throw any passes.

Fantasy Tip: No further information was provided on Carr's injury, so it's unclear whether it's his throwing arm/hand. He still has plenty of time to recover before training camp starts, so stay tuned. Even at full health he's not starting fantasy quarterback material.

Raiders | Derek Carr inactive at OTAs

Tue, 19 May 2015 15:00:20 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (undisclosed) was not a participant in practice during organized team activities Tuesday, May 19. Carr's injury has not been disclosed, but it is minor, according to a source, and he should be back for minicamp.

Fantasy Tip: Carr finished with respectable rookie campaign in 2014, and a new-look offense and new offensive coordinator could provide more success, but Carr doesn't deserve starter consideration in any scoring format.

Raiders | Derek Carr excited for new offense

Tue, 10 Feb 2015 13:19:50 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is excited for the team's no-huddle offense under new offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave. "Sometimes, the games were really slow for me [last season]," Carr said. "It was almost like I was waiting for it to speed up." Carr had experience with the no-huddle offense in college at Fresno State University and said he's very comfortable in it.

Fantasy Tip: While the new no-huddle offense could give Carr a boost in fantasy value, he's still no more than a backup fantasy quarterback as he continues to gain experience and waits for a better supporting cast.

Raiders | Derek Carr needs to improve against blitz

Fri, 02 Jan 2015 15:16:06 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr will focus on improving against the blitz heading into next season. When Carr was blitzed in his rookie season, he completed 46.6% of his passes for 857 yards, six touchdowns and a passer rating of 61.2. Against a standard rush, he completed 63.5% of his passes for 2,413 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Carr had his share of ups and downs in his rookie season. Expect him to be a little more inconsistent next year, but a new coaching staff could disrupt his progress. Carr shouldn't be anything more than a weak backup QB for fantasy football purposes.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (illness) was not on the team's injury report Friday, Dec. 26, and is good to go for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Carr is still not a viable on FantasyScore, especially considering the equal pricing for each position. Look elsewhere at quarterback this week.
