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.

Fantasy Tip: Baby steps. Carr has a bright future and could be a more consistent player in 2015 with another year of preparation.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (illness) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Carr has been on a nice roll recently, tossing six touchdowns and no interceptions over his last three games. However, he is a risky option at FantasyScore in Week 17 when the Raiders face a Denver team that will be trying to secure a bye in the postseason.

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 13:49:05 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (thumb) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Carr has thrown four touchdowns and zero interceptions in his last two games and has only thrown two interceptions in his last five games. Carr only costs $3,900 on FantasyScore, but should be avoided since he will be facing a very good Buffalo Bills defense.

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 14:54:53 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (thumb) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 18, after being limited Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Carr ($3,900) hasn't been a FantasyScore recommendation all year, and we're not about to start now, especially against a strong Buffalo Bills defense. Ignore the Raiders signal caller everywhere.
