Raiders | Derek Carr probable for Week 16

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.

Raiders | Derek Carr endorses coach

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 10:56:01 -0800

Oakland Raiders interim head coach Tony Sparano got the endorsement of QB Derek Carr as the team's head coach. "Yeah, we love him," Carr said. "He's our leader. Absolutely. We love him. Obviously, those decisions are going to happen, and we have no control in that. Those decisions will be made, and whoever is here is who we'll play for. "But right now, coach Sparano is my leader. I love him 100 percent. He genuinely cares about me. He's pulled me into his office just to ask how I'm doing. … Those kind of things from a head coach mean so much."

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 17:12:37 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (thumb) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Carr is likely to be ready to go for Week 16, but FantasyScore owners will likely want to avoid a matchup against Buffalo Bills defense which has shut down Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers the past two weeks.

Raiders | Derek Carr won't be benched

Tue, 02 Dec 2014 11:14:32 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr will remain the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Tony Sparano. Carr was pulled from the Week 13 contest versus the St. Louis Rams early in the fourth quarter.

Fantasy Tip: Carr still isn't worth a starting spot on your roster as he faces one of the best fantasy defenses against quarterbacks in the San Francisco 49ers.

Raiders | Derek Carr probable against Chiefs

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 14:54:02 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (quadriceps) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 19, and is probable for Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs have allowed a league-low 2,180 passing yards this season, making Carr ($3,800) a very weak option at FantasyScore on a short week against a divisional opponent. Look elsewhere for your signal caller.

Raiders | Derek Carr limited again

Tue, 18 Nov 2014 14:44:20 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (quadriceps) was limited in practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Nov. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Carr injured his quad early in Week 11 against the San Diego Chargers and played the rest of the game, so it shouldn't be an issue heading into Week 12 Thursday night. A short week against a tough divisional opponent in the Kansas City Chiefs isn't the best time to use Carr ($3,800) at FantasyScore, though, despite his appealing price.

Raiders | Derek Carr limited by quad

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 20:55:38 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (quadriceps) was a limited participant in practice Monday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Carr should be fine to take the field Thursday, Nov. 20, but a matchup against a tough Kansas City defense makes him a poor option at FantasyScore in Week 12.

Raiders | Derek Carr listed as probable

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 15:06:14 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (ankle, knee) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 17, and is listed as probable for Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Carr looked much improved coming off his bye week against the San Diego Chargers in Week 6. He's not a bad option for FantasyScore players looking to save a little loot at the position.

Raiders | Limited practice for Derek Carr

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 20:37:58 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (ankle, knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Carr is coming off the best performance of his early career, and he is an attractive FantasyScore play at $5,100 (or 10.2 percent of cap), as long as he returns to a full practice by Friday and is deemed ready to go for Week 7.

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 11:51:09 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (ankle, knee) looked good in practice Friday, Oct. 10, and he'll start in Week 6 against the San Diego Chargers barring any setbacks, according to head coach Tony Sparano.

Fantasy Tip: Carr returns from the bye week with a very tough matchup at home against a surging San Diego Chargers squad. Ignore Carr in all formats.

Raiders | Raiders committed to Derek Carr

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 09:10:33 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr has received a vote of confidence from new head coach Tony Sparano. "I visited with him and we got a chance to talk about that," Sparano said. "I said to him, 'This is your football team; you're the quarterback. We don't have time for you to be a rookie right now, this team needs you to step up and be that leader. Don't sit around and wait to do that.'" Carr has showed good poise through four weeks of ups and downs in his rookie season.

Fantasy Tip: Carr won't be demoted from the starting role anytime soon, it sounds like. He'll likely continue to experience plenty of peaks and valleys, though, as he learns the ropes of the NFL. Unless he has a great matchup, Carr isn't a wise option for your daily lineups.

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 15:39:33 -0700

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 10:07:27 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (ankle, knee) said he expects to play in Week 6 against the San Diego Chargers after practicing on a limited basis Wednesday, Oct. 8. "It would take a lot for me not to play," Carr said after practice. "It felt really good out there." Head coach Tony Sparano said Carr is day-to-day, and he won't commit to Carr playing this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Carr is a risky play this weekend against a very good Chargers defense.

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 18:28:08 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (ankle, knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 8.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (ankle, knee) said he expects to play against the San Diego Chargers in Week 6 following the team's bye week.

Raiders | Derek Carr banged up in loss

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 20:39:08 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (ankle, knee) told reporters after the Week 4 game against the Miami Dolphins in London Sunday, Sept. 28, that he suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament and high ankle sprain.

Fantasy Tip: Carr will have two weeks to rest with the bye coming up. If he is unable to play in Week 6, Mat McGloin will likely get a chance to start. But that's a ways off at this point.

Raiders | Derek Carr avoiding sacks

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 13:19:08 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr has been sacked just twice in 108 passing attempts through three games.

Fantasy Tip: Carr threw for just 174 yards and an interception in the Week 3 loss to the New England Patriots after going 21-for-34. The lack of sacks is a plus, but you shouldn't be looking to rely on the Raiders rookie in any weekly fantasy games.

Raiders | Derek Carr has way with Revis

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 07:54:07 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Carr has shown flashes, but he isn't more than a matchup play right now.

Raiders | Derek Carr could start

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 06:27:01 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr dazzled in the final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28, and could have played well enough to start the season opener over QB Matt Schaub. Carr was 11-for-13 for 143 yards against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Schaub (elbow) is still in line to start. However, this performance gave beat writer Bill Williamson the inclination that it was enough to give Carr serious consideration to start. Neither QB is worth drafting at this point, but they could become matchup plays.

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 16:59:10 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (ribs) is not among the inactive players for the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if the rookie will play or not, as he was supposedly ruled out earlier in the week. Carr suffered a rib injury and head issue in the last preseason game. His fantasy value is rather negligible, but if Matt Schaub continues to struggle, it wouldn't be surprising to see the hometown boy get a shot.

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.
