Raiders | Derek Carr could push Matt Schaub

Sun, 08 Jun 2014 14:23:34 -0700

There is an internal belief that Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr could push QB Matt Schaub to start. He has already proven to the staff he won't need to sit on the sidelines in the 2014 season.

Fantasy Tip: Both players are worthy of QB2 spots, but Carr's upside could make him worthy of a QB1 slot for bye weeks at some point.

Raiders | Derek Carr inconsistent in red-zone drills

Tue, 03 Jun 2014 12:37:14 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr made several nice passes into tight windows during red-zone drills Monday, June 2. Carr also misfired on a couple passes, including one that sailed directly off the hands of CB Taiwan Jones in the back of the end zone.

Fantasy Tip: Carr is best left on the waiver wire until he supplants Matt Schaub as the Raiders No. 1 quarterback, which might not happen in 2014. If it does, expect shaky fantasy production.

Fresno State QB Derek Carr said at the NFL Scouting Combine that he will out-prepare anyone and credits his family for helping him get to this point.

Buccaneers | Will consider QB with first pick

Thu, 20 Feb 2014 09:37:12 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith said the team will consider drafting a quarterback at No. 7 overall in the first round of the NFL Draft. Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater, Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel, Central Florida QB Blake Bortles and Fresno State QB Derek Carr could all be available at that spot. Smith said it's too early to tell if QB Mike Glennon is the answer long term at quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Remember, the previous GM and head coach in Tampa were responsible for drafting Glennon. Smith and his new staff don't seem to be as upbeat on him. Keep that in mind if the Bucs draft another signal caller and Glennon struggles in his sophomore season.
