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.

Sun, 31 Dec 2017 18:23:55 -0800

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.

Raiders | Derek Carr efficient in win

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 19:03:45 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 18 of his 24 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns in a 21-14 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: You have to go back to Week 7 to find the last game when Carr threw multiple touchdowns and didn't throw an interception. He could be a streaming option in Week 13 against the New York Giants, but make sure to check on the status of Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree before committing to Carr.

Raiders | Derek Carr trusts Jared Cook

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 20:58:14 -0800

Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook's ability to stretch defenses down the field is a luxury from the position, according to QB Derek Carr, and Carr said he is comfortable throwing to Cook no matter who is covering him.

Fantasy Tip: Cook has two 100-yard performances in his last three games, and he has topped 50 yards in three straight. Another week of TE1 production should be on tap against the New England Patriots in Week 11.

Raiders | Derek Carr tallies 300 yards

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 05:33:20 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr was 21-for-30 for 300 yards, a touchdown and one interception against the Miami Dolphins Sunday, Nov. 5.

Fantasy Tip: He's throwing for a ton of yardage, but his 13-to-7 touchdown to interception ratio in eight games leaves much to be desired. He's a midrange QB1 for now.

Raiders | Derek Carr posts 313 yards, TD

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 14:48:11 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 31 of his 49 pass attempts for 313 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Carr did a pretty decent job against a stout Buffalo defense in windy and cool conditions in Buffalo. He should find the weather and matchup more favorable on Sunday night in Miami in Week 9.

Chiefs | Marcus Peters fined

Sat, 28 Oct 2017 06:10:35 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs CB Marcus Peters was fined $9,115 by the National Football League for a hit against Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr in Week 7's game. The hit led to a scrum that led to the one-game suspension of Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch, who made contact with an official.

Raiders | Derek Carr tops 400 yards passing

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 21:11:26 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 29 of 52 passes for 417 yards and three touchdowns against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday, Oct. 19. Carr added a 15-yard run and did not turn the ball over.

Fantasy Tip: Completion percentage aside this was easily the biggest game of the year for Carr, who'd passed for fewer than 200 yards in each of his previous three games. We'll see if it jump starts the offense going forward. On the health front Carr now has 10 days to further heal up before the team travels to Buffalo.

Raiders | Oakland struggling on offense

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 11:08:50 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr and the rest of the offense have yet to hit their stride this year. On the season, there have been 42 300-yard passing games, 44 100-yard receiving games and 32 100-yard rushing games by individual players. The Raiders boast zero of those 118 such games.

Fantasy Tip: The struggles of Amari Cooper have been well documented, but it's somewhat of a surprise that Marshawn Lynch and Michael Crabtree have not reached the 100-yard mark in any game. Carr, Lynch, Crabtree and Cooper remain starting options, of course, but don't expect a big breakout in a tough matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday night.

Raiders | Rough outing for Derek Carr

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 04:13:24 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 21 of his 30 pass attempts for 171 yards and one touchdown, but he was also picked off twice in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: It won't get much better for Carr, at least not yet. Carr has a Week 7 clash against the Kansas City Chiefs and it is a short week because of Thursday Night Football. Add to that Carr is returning from back spasms, and you might want to stay away until Carr gets his legs back.

Raiders | Derek Carr to start Week 6

Sat, 14 Oct 2017 05:41:53 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) will start Week 6's game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Carr was removed from the injury report after serving as a full practice participant Friday, Oct. 13. Even though it's uncertain how close he will be to 100 percent, he should be viewed as a low-end QB1 in all fantasy formats due to his career success versus the Chargers.

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 14:34:39 -0700

Oakland Raiders CB Gareon Conley (shin), CB Antonio Hamilton (knee), LB Marquel Lee (ankle) and DB Jamize Olawale (concussion) did not practice Friday, Oct. 13, and all four are listed as out for Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers. CB David Amerson (shoulder), LB Cory James (knee) and RB DeAndre Washington (hamstring) were limited participants and are considered questionable. QB Derek Carr (back), WR Amari Cooper (knee), OG Gabe Jackson (foot) and TE Lee Smith (knee) practiced in full and have been removed from the report.

Raiders | Derek Carr has another limited practice

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 16:31:34 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Carr will be back under center Sunday for the Raiders, but there's still a question as to how close he is to 100 percent health. Even so, the former Fresno State product has enjoyed splendid numbers opposite the Chargers since entering the league. In fact, he's thrown for more yards and touchdowns against them than any other opponent whom he's faced. Thus, as long as he's active, Carr is worth retaining his QB1 position in all lineups.

Raiders | Derek Carr practices on limited basis

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 15:44:01 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) was able to take part in practice Wednesday, Oct. 11, on a limited basis.

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Jack Del Rio said earlier in the week that Carr is expected to be ready for Week 6, and that certainly appears to be the case. Originally he was diagnosed with an injury with a 2-6 week timeframe, and it appears he'll be on the short end of that.

Raiders | Derek Carr expected to play

Mon, 09 Oct 2017 15:22:00 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) is expected to play against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 6, according to head coach Jack Del Rio.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Carr's status during the week to see if he suffers any setbacks. He will be a risky option since he missed only one week because of the injury but can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues if he is able to play.

Fri, 06 Oct 2017 14:47:50 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 6, and is questionable for Week 5. He is a game-time decision.

Fantasy Tip: Consider this far closer to doubtful or out and a case of Jack Del Rio playing games with the injury report. EJ Manuel is expected to start.

Raiders | Derek Carr could return by Week 6

Fri, 06 Oct 2017 11:32:15 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) has "improved" and could play as early as Week 6 versus the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Carr's initial timeline was two to six weeks, so this is definitely good news for owners of Michael Crabtree, Amari Cooper and Jared Cook. E.J. Manuel will get the start this week versus the Baltimore Ravens, which is a huge downgrade for the entire offense. Even though the Ravens' defense has fallen off dramatically over the past two weeks, Manuel should put them back on the map in DFS and redraft leagues.

Raiders | Derek Carr returns to practice

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 23:41:59 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 5, after taking part in stretching and throwing passes to receivers. Head coach Jack Del Rio previously announced Carr would miss two to six weeks.

Fantasy Tip: While EJ Manuel is still set to start in Week 5, Carr's return to practice has to be seen as encouraging for his outlook going forward -- both Cam Newton and Tony Romo returned after just one game with the same transverse process fractures. While you'll need a replacement for this weekend, Carr's prospects for Week 6 look brighter.

Raiders | Oakland hoping Derek Carr misses one week

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 16:24:11 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) will not be able to play in Week 5 because of his transverse process fracture, but the team is hoping he will only miss one week and return for their Week 6 game. The normal timetable for Carr's injury is two to six weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check on Carr's practice participation next week to see if he has a chance to play in Week 6. EJ Manuel will be starting in his place but does not have much fantasy value. Owners should be able to find a short-term replacement for Carr on the waiver wire.

Raiders | Derek Carr could miss 2-6 weeks

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 15:16:33 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) has a transverse process fracture in his back and likely will miss at least the Week 5 game, according to head coach Jack Del Rio. The typical recovery time for Carr's injury is two to six weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see when Carr will be able to return. E.J. Manuel likely will take over as the starting quarterback but should be avoided in all leagues. The quarterback change probably will hurt the fantasy value of Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper.

Raiders | Derek Carr battling back spasms

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 16:34:18 -0700

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) is dealing with back spasms, and head coach Jack Del Rio said Sunday, Oct. 1, that he doesn't believe it is a long-term issue.

Fantasy Tip: That's great news for fantasy owners, as Carr took a knee to the back which forced E.J. Manuel into action. It sounds positive that Carr will be able to play in Week 5 against the Ravens, but we'll have a much better idea next Friday when the official injury report is released.

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 15:17:33 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) suffered an apparent back injury in the fourth quarter of the Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Carr was laid flat on the ground after taking a hit in the back, but he was able to walk off under his own power before heading to the locker room. E.J. Manuel replaced him.

Raiders | Derek Carr has disastrous SNF outing

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 18 of his 30 pass attempts for just 110 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Carr was sacked four times and he turned in a dismal 50.7 quarterback rating, as the Redskins defense seemed to be in the backfield harassing him all evening. He'll look to bounce back in Week 4 on the road against the Broncos in another difficult matchup.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 23 of his 28 pass attempts for 230 yards and three touchdowns in a 45-20 win over the New York Jets in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Carr is completing 75.0 percent of his passes and has five touchdowns and no interceptions through two games. He is looking the part of a QB1 heading into a Week 3 meeting with Washington.

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 13:53:33 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr went 22-for-32 for 262 yards and two touchdowns against the Tennessee Titans in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Carr continued his strong play from 2016 in Week 1 and has thrown at least two touchdowns in five of his last seven regular season games. Carr should be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback next week against the New York Jets.

Raiders | Derek Carr agrees to extension

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 07:22:07 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr agreed to a five-year, $125 million extension Thursday, June 22, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The deal makes him the highest-paid player in NFL history from an annual perspective. Carr has had two really good years in a row. At 26, with a good supporting cast around him, he looks poised to take the next step. However, he's not in the cream of the crop in fantasy yet. When the top signal-callers come off the board, Carr is an excellent fallback.

Raiders | Derek Carr deal near completion

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 05:29:46 -0700

Updating previous reports, Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr has a deal in place with the Raiders, and only language remains. It could be finalized this week. Carr could choose to backload the deal because there is no state tax in Nevada and California's tax rate is 13.3 percent. Doing so would save him millions.

Fantasy Tip: Carr has about as much hype as anyone in fantasy circles, and he was great last season before his leg injury. However, it's premature to put him in the elite QB1 category. He's a nice consolation if you miss out on the first three or four.

Raiders | Derek Carr could receive big extension

Fri, 09 Jun 2017 15:06:06 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr has a chance to receive $25 million per season in a contract extension, in the opinion of NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: Carr is looking to sign an extension before the start of training camp, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation over the next few weeks. Carr was one of the better quarterbacks in 2016 before he suffered his injury and will have a solid group of pass catchers again this season. Carr should be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues.

Raiders | Derek Carr would play sans extension

Tue, 30 May 2017 14:29:56 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr said he will play out the 2016 season even if a contract extension is not agreed upon before the start of the season. Carr added that he doesn't want the extension to be a distraction this year. The quarterback's hope is that an extension will be done by training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Despite not yet finishing as a QB1 in his young career, Carr should be in the QB1 conversation. He throws behind one of the better offensive lines in the game, has Marshawn Lynch to provide a respectable running game and throws to arguably the best receiving duo in the NFL in Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree. View Carr as a low-end QB1 heading into 2017.

Raiders | Derek Carr to have extension by training camp?

Mon, 22 May 2017 11:57:54 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is confident that his agent and the Raiders will have a contract extension agreed upon before training camp begins.

Fantasy Tip: Carr won't need an extension until next offseason, but why wait? He's officially one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL after just three seasons. His touchdown to interception ratio is superb (81:31) and he has one of the better wide receivers duos to work with in Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree. All in all, Carr is ideal for drafting as a low-end QB1.

Fantasy Tip: Carr probably will agree to an extension at some point this offseason. He is coming off a 2016 season where he threw for 3,937 yards and 28 touchdowns. Carr will have solid options to throw to in the passing game and can be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues if he is healthy.
