Derek Carr picked off twice in home-opener
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr surpassed the 250-yard mark in a rough outing at home against the Texans in Week 2.

Carr was picked off by Kareem Jackson, who nearly took it back for a touchdown. It was Carr's first interception of the season. He was intercepted by Brooks Reed in the fourth quarter before firing a 9-yard touchdown pass to James Jones with 13 seconds remaining. He finished the game with 263 yards through the air while completing 27 of 42 attempts. He had one touchdown and two interceptions, registering a 69.8 passer rating in a 30-14 defeat.

Carr has 414 passing yards, with three touchdowns and two interceptions through his first two career games. He will travel to New England for a Week 3 showdown against the Patriots.

Derek Carr unable to connect downfield
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr completed 20 of 32 passes against the Jets in his debut, but only three completions were caught 10 yards beyond the line of scrimmage. And eight of Carr's completions were behind the line.

"We had some shot plays called down the field, and a couple of those opportunities, for whatever the reason was, we didn't get the ball down the field and ended up having to check it down," coach Dennis Allen told the Oakland Tribune. "I would say it's a combination of us and some of what they did."

Carr, who has a big arm, will try to attack downfield more Week 2 against Houston.

Derek Carr has two touchdowns in loss
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr made his NFL debut Sunday at the Jets, and he was mediocre at best in a 19-14 loss.

Carr was 20-of-32 passing for 151 yards and two touchdowns. But he should have had an interception returned for a touchdown, and he was limited after a 7-of-7 start. He connected on touchdowns to Rod Streater and James Jones.

The Raiders play host to Houston in Week 2.

Fantasy Analysis | 1409857306
Derek Carr viable option against porous Jets pass defense
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Raiders rookie and surprise starter Derek Carr could not have picked a more troubled cornerback corps to debut against Sunday.

The Jets are a mess in that area. Antonio Allen, who has moved from safety to corner, has just been cleared after sustaining a concussion. An ankle injury will almost certainly keep Dee Milliner sidelined. Dimitri Patterson went AWOL and was cut. And the Jets are so desperate they might start Browns castoff Leon McFadden, who was seemingly whistled for interference on every pass thrown his way in the preseason. The Jets ranked 22nd in the NFL in pass defense a year ago and could be worse in 2014.

That makes Carr an intriguing Fantasy start. Also encouraging is that the Raiders have added playmakers in the offseason that should give him several viable weapons. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew and wide receiver James Jones are legitimate threats, as are holdover wideouts Denarius Moore and Rod Streater.

Don't expect Carr to light it up for 300 yards and three touchdowns - such is too much to ask for in his introduction to the regular season in the NFL and he will be playing in front of a hostile crowd. But he is coming off a preseason finale in which he completed 11 of 13 passes for 143 yards and three touchdowns and he clearly outperformed expected starter Matt Schaub in exhibition play. There are certainly worse options against a Jets pass defense that appears destined for disaster early in the season.
