Carrier caught his lone target for four yards in the Raiders' season finale against the Broncos, finishing the 2019 campaign with 13 receptions for 108 yards and a touchdown on 17 targets in 16 games. Carrier assumed the No. 2 role at tight end following a season-ending knee injury to rookie Foster Moreau in Week 14, and the former could begin the 2020 campaign as Darren Waller's (thumb) primary backup with Moreau's potential availability currently uncertain. Carrier has one year remaining on his contract, but he's proven reliable with zero missed games through two seasons with the Raiders.
Carrier caught two passes on as many targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Chargers. Carrier has now caught at least one pass in three of the Raiders' past four games, enjoying a slight uptick in opportunities with rookie Foster Moreau (knee) now on injured reserve. Expect Carrier to serve as Darren Waller's primary backup at tight end again in Week 17 against the Broncos.
Carrier caught his only target for five yards in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Jaguars. Carrier played a season-high 23 offensive snaps in Fabian Moreau's (knee) stead, but it was Darren Waller who, predictably, stole the show with eight catches for 122 yards. The 29-year-old Carrier has been deployed as a run-blocker in his career, and he figures to continue that role going forward.
Carrier caught two passes on as many targets for 10 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 40-9 loss to the Chiefs. Carrier provided Oakland with their first and only touchdown late in the fourth quarter on a four-yard pass from quarterback Derek Carr, but fellow tight end Darren Waller was generally much more involved with seven receptions on nine targets for 100 yards. Carrier had gone five consecutive games without a reception prior to Sunday's blowout loss, as he remains behind Waller and Foster Moreau on the TE depth chart.
Carrier caught two of four targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 42-24 loss to the Packers. Carrier remains behind Darren Waller and Foster Moreau in the pecking order at tight end for the Raiders, but the 29-year-old journeyman has now caught a pair of passes in back-to-back games. Nonetheless, Carrier is primarily serving on special teams and should maintain such a role in Week 8 against the Texans.
