    Raiders' Derek Carr: Throws late touchdown pass

    Carr completed 21 of 33 passes for 194 yards with a touchdown and interception in Sunday's 23-17 loss at Kansas City. He also ran two times for 12 yards. Carr had an uneven performance against the Chiefs in Week 13, completing 31 of 48 passes for 283 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions, and wasn't productive Sunday, until he threw a late fourth-quarter score to Michael Crabtree. The Raiders got the ball back in the final two minutes with a chance to win the game, but Carr was unable to lead them down the field. Although he came up a little short of Daryle Lamonica's 46-year old franchise record of 34 touchdown passes, Carr still had a very productive sophomore campaign, finishing with over 4,000 yards and 32 TDs, while tossing just 13 interceptions. With rookie Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, who recently signed a long-term deal, in the fold, it wouldn't be surprising to see Carr take another step in 2016.

    Raiders' Derek Carr: Throws for one score Thursday

    Carr completed 23 of 38 passes for 204 yards and one score while also throwing one interception in Thursday's 23-20 overtime win against the Chargers. He also rushed four times for 30 yards and was sacked three times. He led the winning overtime drive for the Raiders, who may have been playing the franchise's final home game in Oakland. Carr also successfully completed a two-point conversion to Andre Roberts late in Thursday's game. Fantasy owners were likely expecting a little more production from the Raiders passing attack Thursday, but Amari Cooper was limited for much of the contest by a nagging foot injury. They will close out the year in a tough matchup in Kansas City next week.

    Raiders' Derek Carr: Throws for 276 yards, two touchdowns in Week 15 loss

    Carr completed 23 of 47 passes for 276 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Packers. He also rushed for 42 yards on four rushing attempts. The second-year pro's performance was a bit of a rollercoaster, with Carr alternating some outstanding stretches with a pair of back-breaking interceptions. The 24-year-old did bounce back nicely from a 135-yard outlier against the Broncos stingy secondary in Week 14, and threw multiple touchdowns for the fourth consecutive game and eighth time in the last nine contests. However, he did notably complete less than half of his passes for the second straight week, and has now thrown five interceptions over two of the last three games. Although the Raiders are now officially eliminated from playoff contention, both the team and Carr have made significant strides this season, and the second-year quarterback's connection with dynamic rookie wideout Amari Cooper should be a formidable one for years to come.

    Raiders' Derek Carr: Tosses a pair of second half TDs in upset win

    Carr completed just 12 of 29 passes for 135 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 15-12 upset win at Denver. A week after melting down in the fourth quarter of a loss to the Chiefs, Carr was awful in the first half Sunday, completing just two passes for seven yards. However, he led the Raiders on a nice 80-yard drive right after halftime, culminating in an 11-yard score to Seth Roberts, and later threw the game-winning TD to Mychal Rivera on a pretty fourth-quarter pass. The second-year QB is on pace for close to 35 touchdown passes, so it's been quite the productive season, despite some recent ups and downs. Next week, he'll look to continue success against Green Bay at home.

    Raiders' Derek Carr: Throws two touchdowns and three interceptions

    Carr completed 31 of 48 passes for 283 yards, with two touchdowns and three interceptions in Sunday's 34-20 loss to the Chiefs. The Raiders had the lead heading into the fourth quarter, but Carr uncharacteristically became a turnover machine, tossing all three of his interceptions in the final period, including a back-breaking 38-yard pick six at the 3:14 mark. Carr struggled at Detroit in Week 11, and even though he imploded a bit Sunday, he's been solid in general during his second season. On a negative note, he's got a brutal matchup next week at Denver, which held him to just 249 yards and one touchdown in Week 5.

    Raiders' Derek Carr: Leads Raiders past Titans

    Carr completed 24-of-37 passes for 330 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 24-21 win at Tennessee. He also fumbled twice, losing one. Carr sports an excellent 24-to-6 touchdown to interception ratio, and has done a good job taking care of the ball even while factoring in his three lost fumbles this season. The sophomore quarterback overcame a forgettable game from usually-reliable receiver Michael Crabtree by featuring Seth Roberts and Amari Cooper, and Carr's ability to get different receivers involved is just the latest demonstration of his increased maturity as a passer.

    Raiders' Derek Carr: Held scoreless against Detroit

    Carr completed 13 of 25 passes for 169 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions. He added eight yards on two carries and fumbled during the game. Sunday was Carr's first game since Week 1 without a touchdown pass. He was likewise limited to his lowest totals in attempts, completions and yardage since Week 1, all against a Detroit defense that came into Sunday's game ranked sixth worst in the league in yards per attempt and pass plays over 20 yards surrendered. Seeing as how Carr entered Sunday with multiple touchdown passes in seven of his last eight games and five games of 300 yards or more, fantasy owners should feel comfortable with the notion that Sunday's game was a slip-up and that Carr's rise up the fantasy ladder should continue.

    Raiders' Derek Carr: Throws for 302 yards and two touchdowns at Oakland

    Carr completed 29-of-43 passes for 302 yards, with two touchdowns and pair of interceptions, in Sunday's 30-14 loss to Minnesota. He also ran two times for 12 yards. Carr had solid statistical game, but couldn't come up with a big play in a crucial moment, throwing an end zone interception late in the game with the Vikings trailing by nine points. He had a shot for a garbage touchdown in the final minute, but was unable to covert from the red zone. Despite the loss, it's been a productive season for the second-year signal caller, and he'll look to get back on track next week in a favorable matchup at Detroit.

    Raiders' Derek Carr: Carr throws four touchdowns

    Carr completed 24 of 44 passes for 301 yards, including four touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's loss to the Steelers. The second-year quarterback had another spectacular performance on Sunday as he led the Raiders' up and down the field from start to finish. In his last three games Carr has thrown 11 touchdown passes to just one interception which has catapulted him into the high-end QB1 category. With 19 touchdowns and just four interceptions on the year, Carr is having one of most successful breakout seasons of anyone in the league. The Raiders head home to play the Vikings in Week 10, and Carr should be in your starting lineup.

    Raiders' Derek Carr: Throws Four Touchdowns

    Carr completed 23-of-36 passes for 333 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Jets. Carr picked apart a very stingy Jets' defense on Sunday as the Raiders rolled to an easy 34-20 win in Oakland. The second-year pro has thrown 15 touchdowns on the year to just three interceptions, and he's quickly becoming a top-end fantasy option as his position. The Raiders get a matchup with the Steelers in Pittsburgh next week and Carr should be in your starting lineup if you own him.
