Fantasy Tip: Carr echoed similar thoughts last week, so this should get done in a timely fashion. The 26-year-old missed the tail end of last season with a broken fibula but has been a full participant at OTAs. At the moment, he slots in as a midrange fantasy QB1 with upside.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr's (leg) surgically-repaired right fibula is healed enough to the point that he's able to be a full participant in the team's offseason training program, which began Monday, April 17. "I've been running, jumping, throwing, cutting, everything," Carr said. "So I'm ready to rock. I'm ready to do absolutely everything. I did everything my teammates did today. I'll do everything my teammates will do tomorrow."
Fantasy Tip: Carr enjoyed an MVP-caliber season in 2017, registering 3,937 passing yards to go with a terrific 28/6 TD/INT ratio in 15 games. Overall, he finished with a shiny 96.7 QB rating, and it looks like he might be in a position to pick up where he left off based on his health going into OTAs. Carr looks like he can be fully trusted again as a QB1 entering the new campaign.

Retired RB Marshawn Lynch (Seahawks) has an agreement in place to join the Oakland Raiders, if the Seattle Seahawks trade his rights. However, the deal may have a deadline of the 2017 NFL Draft. Oakland could move on if it drafts a power back, in the opinion of NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Fantasy Tip: As this story evolves, we'll keep you updated. An Oakland-employed Lynch would be a high-risk, high-reward RB2 in fantasy drafts.

Fantasy Tip: There's no question Carr deserves an extension after solidifying himself as the quarterback of the future for the Raiders. Extension or no extension, one can expect about 4,000 yards and 30 touchdowns from Carr this season, putting him in low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 territory.

Fantasy Tip: The Raiders should be able to a deal with Lynch in the near future but would still need to acquire his rights from the Seattle Seahawks. He likely will receive most of the carries if he joins the Raiders and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back for fantasy owners.
