Raiders | Derek Carr tosses pair of TDs

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 22:38:28 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) completed 19 of his 35 pass attempts for 260 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 13 game against the Buffalo Bills. He also ran twice for four yards.

Fantasy Tip: Carr did not show any ill-effects from the finger injury he suffered last week. He remains a fantasy must-have in all leagues heading into Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday night, although with sub-freezing temperatures the offense could take a while to warm up.

Raiders | Derek Carr expects to be fine

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 09:38:14 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) said he expects to be fine and believes he will be able to handle snaps from under center. Carr will have a glove available to use but hopes not to use it.

Fantasy Tip: Carr probably will not be limited by the injury and likely will be asked to throw as much as he had before the injury. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 11:28:41 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) stated that he is experiencing expected soreness from his dislocated right pinkie finger, but he anticipates being ready to play in Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Naturally, Oakland will play two games in five days beginning with Sunday's home tilt before traveling to Kansas City to face the Chiefs Thursday. Carr has emerged as a must-start QB1 this season and showed no virtually no drop-off after missing just one series with the injury. Expect Carr to be his usual self versus the Bills.

Raiders | Derek Carr able to finish game

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 22:40:57 -0800

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) completed 26 of his 38 pass attempts for 315 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers. He was able to return and finish the game after suffering a pinkie injury to his right hand.

Fantasy Tip: Carr was wearing a glove on his injured throwing hand upon returning, and looked sharp leading the rally to another win. It's likely the injury will not hinder him heading into Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills, although their pass defense might cause more problems for him than Carolina's leaky pass D.

Raiders | Derek Carr checks back in

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 15:21:43 -0800

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) returned to the field midway through the third quarter of the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers. He is wearing a protective glove over the injured area of his right hand.

Fantasy Tip: Carr's fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief, and the Panthers cut the lead of the Raiders to 24-19 since he departed, so there is little chance of a lopsided score cutting his day short.

Raiders | Derek Carr injures ring finger

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 15:16:54 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) suffered a dislocation to either his right ring finger or pinkie in the third quarter of the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers, announcer Phil Simms speculated. Carr ran off to the locker room for treatment.

Fantasy Tip: If Carr cannot continue, Matt McGloin would take over for the rest of the game. The Raiders had a 24-7 lead at the time of the injury, so perhaps the score of the game plays a factor into whether Carr can return, too.

Raiders | Derek Carr could receive extension

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 08:18:06 -0800

The Oakland Raiders are hoping to sign QB Derek Carr to a contract extension during the offseason, according to a league source. He is likely to receive a deal similar to the five-year, $123 million contract given to Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck last summer.

Fantasy Tip: The 25-year-old Carr is having an outstanding season, with 2,321 passing yards, 17 touchdowns, three interceptions and a 66.3% passer rating through his first eight games. He should be viewed as a solid QB1 in fantasy leagues containing 12 or more teams.

Raiders | Derek Carr has struggled versus Broncos

Tue, 01 Nov 2016 17:36:00 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr has averaged a mere 183.5 passing yards in four career games against the Denver Broncos -- his Week 9 opponent. Additionally, he has only thrown six touchdowns in those games while throwing four interceptions.

Fantasy Tip: Denver's defense has been one of the best in the league the last few seasons, and this year is no different. Carr is coming off a career performance in which he threw for over 500 yards, but he'll plummet back down to earth in Week 9. That's not to say he'll maintain his career averaged against the Broncos, but it might be better to bench Carr if there are better options on your roster.

Raiders | Derek Carr goes off in Tampa

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 16:30:38 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 40 of his 59 pass attempts for a franchise-record 513 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 8 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also rushed once for 13 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Carr has emerged as a must-start QB1 in all fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, but he'll likely find the sledding much tougher in Week 9 when the suffocating defense of the Denver Broncos come calling to the Black Hole.

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 20:32:44 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 23 of his 37 pass attempts for 200 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in his Week 7 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also ran four times for four yards.

Fantasy Tip: Carr has at least one passing touchdown in each of his seven games this season, but he has just one 300-yard passing game since Week 1. He is a solid bye-week replacement or low-end QB1 when your primary option has a difficult matchup.

Raiders | Derek Carr tosses four touchdowns

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 19:44:10 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 25 of his 35 pass attempts for 199 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 4 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Carr's passing yardage has decreased in each of his games so far this season, but he has nine touchdowns and just one interception through four games. He has emerged as a solid low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, especially with Michael Crabtree playing at a high level.

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 20:11:20 -0700

Raiders | Michael Crabtree improving chemistry

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 21:31:58 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree said he has been practicing all the routes during practice and continues to improve his chemistry with QB Derek Carr.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree was a potent complement to Amari Cooper last year, and he should land firmly in WR3 territory again in 2016.

Raiders | Amari Cooper earning Derek Carr's trust

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 18:03:04 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper said he has a better idea of where QB Derek Carr wants to go with the football this season, and Carr said he is able to throw the ball to Cooper earlier because he knows where Cooper will be.

Fantasy Tip: Cooper should be a high-end WR2 in his second season, and Carr is a potential QB1 candidate if you wait until later in the draft to address the position.

Raiders | Derek Carr more than a thrower

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 10:28:42 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is more polished and isn't a gunslinger, according to former QB Brett Favre.

Fantasy Tip: When you think of the term "gunslinger," you think of a high-touchdown output and someone that takes more risks, which lead to more interceptions. Carr threw for 3,987 yards, 32 touchdowns and 13 interceptions last season. There is room to grow from there, but taking him as anything more than a low-end QB1 would be a risk.

Raiders | Amari Cooper feeling comfortable

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 20:15:36 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper has received praise for his performance during the team's offseason program, and he has continued to build rapport with QB Derek Carr. He has appeared confident and comfortable this spring.

Fantasy Tip: Cooper was banged up last season, and he appears to hit a wall in his first season. With a full offseason program and experience of his first NFL season, he should take a big step forward and be one of the Top 10 wide receivers in the game in 2016.

Raiders | Derek Carr, Amari Cooper linking up

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:08:41 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr and WR Amari Cooper have shown good chemistry during organized team activities. The two players were not able to work together last season because Carr was recovering from an injury.

Fantasy Tip: Carr posted terrific numbers last season and will have the same weapons to work with this season. He should be considered a starting quarterback in most fantasy leagues. Cooper finished his season with 1,070 yards and six touchdowns. He should receive more targets in 2016 and can be a No. 1 receiver in many fantasy leagues.

Raiders | Derek Carr in elite company

Sun, 14 Feb 2016 16:55:41 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr's 53 touchdown passes through his first two seasons are second only to retired QB Dan Marino's record of 68 touchdown passes.

Fantasy Tip: Carr tossed 32 touchdowns in 2015, and he and receiver Amari Cooper form the foundation of a blossoming passing attack. Carr could be a low-end QB1 next season, and Cooper should be a solid WR2.

Raiders | Amari Cooper confident in Derek Carr

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 18:40:06 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper said he has "no doubt" that QB Derek Carr will be an elite player at the position.

Fantasy Tip: While Cooper's option may be a bit biased, the two young players did display strong chemistry in Cooper's rookie year. Cooper will enter 2016 as a solid WR2 candidate, and Carr is a high-end backup and a legit starting candidate against friendlier matchups.

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 10:39:35 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr would have the second-most two-touchdown games for a player in his first two seasons with two touchdown tosses Thursday, Dec. 24, against the San Diego Chargers. He would tie Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning for second place in the category.

Fantasy Tip: Carr ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) has a decent matchup and is a midrange grab on FantasyScore.

Raiders | Derek Carr better on deep ball

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 09:06:21 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr has improved his deep passing game this year, throwing six touchdowns on passes 20 yards or deeper, which is tied for the NFL lead. Carr struggled with the deep ball in his rookie season.

Fantasy Tip: Carr ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) is maturing and improving quickly in his second season, and better playmakers and a vertical offense surely has helped him. In the right matchups, he can easily put up valuable QB1 numbers. However, he faces a stiff test in the New York Jets this weekend. Look to fade him on FantasyScore for this one.

Fantasy Tip: Carr ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) apparently did his homework during the bye, looking good against San Diego after the two-week layoff. He has been a strong FantasyScore value in spots this season when the matchup is favorable against a mediocre pass defense.

Raiders | Derek Carr not being pressured much

Tue, 20 Oct 2015 16:50:34 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is the 30th-least pressured quarterback in the league right now at 25.9% of his dropbacks. His 93.9 passer rating through five games is up from his 76.6 rating in his rookie year in 2014. Carr is also getting the ball out at 2.33 seconds after the snap, which is seventh-fastest in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Carr ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) found success against the Chargers at home last year but struggled against them on the road, and the Bolts are allowing just 19.1 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this year. Coming off the bye week, Carr isn't the most attractive daily QB on the road.

Raiders | Oakland offense more efficient

Tue, 13 Oct 2015 17:16:49 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr and the rest of the Raiders' offense have put Oakland on pace for 67 punts in 2015. The Raiders punted 109 times last season.

Fantasy Tip: The young trio of Carr, Latavius Murray and Amari Cooper has really propelled the Raiders in 2015; and Michael Crabtree has shown he's not washed up. The defense is no pushover either. Cooper in particular has solidified himself as an every-week starter, while Murray is solidly in RB2 territory.

Raiders | Derek Carr seeing few blitzes

Fri, 09 Oct 2015 16:09:30 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr has been blitzed on just 13.4% of his dropbacks this year through four games. However, he's facing a Denver Broncos team that leads the league with 18 sacks in Week 5. Eleven different Denver players have recorded sacks this year.

Fantasy Tip: As Legwold mentions, the Broncos have been blitz-happy under new defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, and they'll likely send the heat on Carr much more often. Carr ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has a tough matchup against the top-ranked defense, and he should be faded on FantasyScore.

Raiders | Derek Carr has record in sights

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 17:00:39 -0700

Should Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr complete 30 passes in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos, it would be the fourth time doing so in his career. That would be the most of any quarterback through his first two seasons in NFL history.

Fantasy Tip: Carr ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) will certainly have his work cut out for him if he is to achieve this feat. The Broncos have been stellar on defense this year and have wreaked havoc on opposing quarterbacks. Invest in him at your own risk.

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 12:25:33 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr, RB Latavius Murray and WR Amari Cooper gained more passing/rushing/receiving yards in Week 3 than any offensive trio under the age of 25 had gained in a single game in NFL history.

Fantasy Tip: The Raiders offense is proving to be legitimate. Carr, Murray and Cooper are a solid corps to build on, and at least Murray and Cooper have turned into every-week starters.

Raiders | Derek Carr receives strong praise

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 08:51:56 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr received praise from Cleveland Browns CB Tramon Williams after the Raiders defeated the Browns in Week 3. "I don't throw this name around too often, but he kind of seems to have a skill set similar to QB Aaron Rodgers, and that's saying something," said Williams. "Obviously we don't know if he's going to turn out to be that player, but skill set-wise, he can move, he can do the whole nine, he has a strong arm, a quick release and he can read defenses as a young quarterback." Browns CB Joe Haden agrees that Carr is a special talent.

Fantasy Tip: Carr threw for 314 yards, two touchdowns and no interception in the win, marking the second straight week with over 300 yards passing and at least two touchdown throws. A spread offense and new dynamic receiving threats will make Carr a force to be reckoned with in 2015. He has low-end QB1 upside and makes for a nice, cheap value pick at the QB position on FantasyScore with the right matchup.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 20 of his 32 pass attempts for 314 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Carr ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) faces the Chicago Bears in Week 4, and might be a decent mid-tier FantasyScore option against a poor team.

Raiders | Derek Carr tops 300 yards

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 19:15:48 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 30 of 46 passes for 351 yards with three touchdowns and an interception in a 37-33 win vs. the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: After an atrocious outing in Week 1, Carr ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) flashed his upside Sunday. He could be worth a look at FantasyScore as a low-priced alternative throughout the year, but a Week 3 matchup with a solid Cleveland secondary isn't overly inviting.
