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 close to extension

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 12:01:55 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is close to agreeing on a contract extension that is expected to pay him around $25 million per season, according to sources. The deal could be announced as early as the end of this week.

Fantasy Tip: Carr recorded 3,937 yards and 28 touchdowns in 2016 before he suffered a season-ending leg injury and has thrown for 81 touchdowns in his three years in the NFL. He should be ready for training camp and will have plenty of pass catchers to work with in the passing game. He should be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson making plays at WR

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 23:32:14 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson has been a "revelation" as a receiver thus far, according to ESPN's Paul Gutierrez, who indicated Patterson has displayed his playmaking ability throughout OTAs and minicamp.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson is arguably the top kick returner in the NFL, but that explosiveness never translated on offense with the Vikings. If the light finally comes on for the former first-rounder, opportunities could abound with nobody locked in at receiver beyond Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree. Keep an eye on him this preseason.

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 | Jared Cook a matchup problem

Fri, 02 Jun 2017 19:44:54 -0700

Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook will be a matchup problem over the middle and help create space for the rest of the offensive playmakers, according to quarterbacks coach Todd Downing. "He's a matchup nightmare for linebackers and most safeties," Downing said. "He really brings a sense in the passing game of a mismatch that we can count on week in and week out."

Fantasy Tip: There is no denying that Cook has the physical tools to be a weapon in the passing game, but consistent production has eluded him throughout his career. Consider him a high-upside TE2.

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 | Amari Cooper wants more

Thu, 25 May 2017 18:35:18 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper said he can have "a lot more production" and is working to be "dominant" this season.

Fantasy Tip: Cooper has topped 1,000 years in his first two years in the league, hauling in 155 passes. There is every reason to expect that his best is yet to come, and he should be drafted as a WR1.
