Player Outlook
Carr has the chance for the best season of his career in 2022, and he's worth drafting as a sleeper with a late-round pick in all one-quarterback leagues. In two-quarterback and Superflex leagues, Carr should be drafted no later than Round 4. The addition of Davante Adams to go with Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow gives Carr the best trio of pass catchers in his career, and he should top the 21.6 Fantasy points per game he scored in 2016. He only averaged 17.8 Fantasy points per game last season despite a career-high 4,804 passing yards, but he scored just 23 touchdowns and had 19 turnovers. Adams, who played with Carr at Fresno State, should help Carr thrive, and he's one of the best Fantasy quarterbacks to wait for on Draft Day this season.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Misses HOF Game

    Carr sat out Thursday's Hall of Fame Game win against the Jaguars, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports. As did a number of Carr's top options in the passing attack, namely wide receivers Davante Adams and Hunter Renfrow and tight end Darren Waller (undisclosed). In particular, the waiting game for the first Carr-Adams connection since 2013 at Fresno State will have to wait until Sunday, Aug. 14 versus the Vikings, at the earliest.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Minimal or no use Thursday

    Carr is among the Raiders' key players who figure to play sparingly, if at all, in Thursday's Hall of Fame Game against the Jaguars, Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. With the Raiders slated to play three more preseason games after the Hall of Fame Game, it seems likely that the team will take it easy on a number of the team's key cogs versus Jacksonville. With that in mind, look for Jarrett Stidham and Nick Mullens to see their share of QB snaps Thursday, with rookie Chase Garbers a candidate to mix in.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Secures three-year extension

    Carr agreed Wednesday with the Raiders on a three-year, $121.5 million contract extension, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Raiders now have both Carr and new top wideout Davante Adams locked in for the foreseeable future. Per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Carr's extension also includes a no-trade clause. The deal gives Las Vegas some long-term stability on offense, which features an aerial attack anchored by Carr and top targets Adams and Darren Waller, who is under contract through 2023. The team's willingness to both commit to Carr and build around him could provide fantasy managers -- especially those in multi-QB formats -- with more optimism about the 31-year-old signal-caller's outlook.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Extension situation uncertain

    Coach Josh McDaniels said Monday the Raiders are "trying to build around" Carr but spoke vaguely about a potential contract extension for the starting quarterback, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports. McDaniels' comments come less than two weeks after Tafur's report that initial discussions between Carr and Las Vegas regarding an extension had begun. Earlier this month, McDaniels confirmed that Carr will enter the 2022 campaign as the Raiders' starting quarterback, and the team since has added a new No. 1 wide receiver to the offensive arsenal in the form of Davante Adams. Despite significant moves to bolster the roster, though, McDaniel's statement that the signal-caller is "going to have to make decisions about what's best for him," along with what appears to be a disgruntled response from Carr's representatives, would seem to indicate that little progress toward a new contract has been made. Currently, Carr is positioned to play out the final year of his contract in the 2022 season, with his $19.8 million salary representing a positional bargain for the Raiders.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: New target in Adams

    Carr gained a new target Thursday when the Raiders agreed to trade for Davante Adams of the Packers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Carr and Adams have familiarity from the 2012 and 2013 seasons at Fresno State, when the latter racked up a whopping 233 catches, 3,031 yards and 38 touchdowns. After eight years apart in which Adams has developed into one of the NFL's top wide receivers, Carr will have the long-coveted No. 1 WR as a member of the Raiders. Following this transaction, Carr currently has WRs Adams, Hunter Renfrow and Bryan Edwards, TEs Darren Waller and Foster Moreau and RBs Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake (ankle) and Brandon Bolden at his disposal for the 2022 campaign.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Will 'absolutely' remain starter

    New Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels said Wednesday that Carr will "absolutely" be the team's starting quarterback Week 1 of the 2022 campaign, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Carr appeared in all 17 games for the Raiders last season and finished with a career-high 4,804 passing yards to go with 23 touchdowns and 14 interceptions while completing 68 percent of his passes. McDaniels, an offensive-minded coach, believes he can get the most out of the veteran quarterback, who has become slightly more efficient over his last four seasons.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Not bothered by ribs

    Carr (ribs) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Rachel Gossen of the Raiders' official site reports. Interim head coach Rich Bisaccia said Monday that Carr was dealing with some rib soreness following last week's win over the Broncos, but the Raiders never had much concern about the quarterback missing time. Carr's ability to take every rep in the Raiders' first Week 17 practice puts to rest any questions about his availability for Sunday's game against the Colts.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Tending to sore ribs

    Raiders interim head coach Rich Bisaccia clarified that Carr is dealing with sore ribs in the aftermath of Sunday's 17-13 win over the Broncos, but the injury isn't expected to affect the quarterback's availability for a Week 17 matchup with the Colts, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports. Bisaccia noted that Carr feels the injury the most when he coughs, but the 30-year-old sounds like he'll otherwise be uninhibited while practicing and playing. The Raiders still could look to ease Carr along slowly this week with a limited workout Wednesday and/or Thursday, but the historically durable signal-caller appears at little to no risk of sitting out Week 17, especially with Las Vegas in the thick of playoff contention.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Raiders-Browns moved to Monday

    Carr and the Raiders will no longer play the Browns on Saturday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Monday at 5 p.m. ET. Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within the Cleveland organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Browns will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. Assuming the Week 15 game is played Monday as planned, Carr and Las Vegas will face a quick turnaround for the team's Week 16 contest versus the Broncos, which is still expected to be played Sunday, Dec. 26 as scheduled.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Two turnovers in loss

    Carr completed 33 of 45 passes for 263 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 48-9 loss to the Chiefs. Carr failed to get the Raiders offense moving while the game remained competitive. He led a scoring drive to close the first half, though the field goal made the score 35-3. His lone touchdown came on the first possession of the second half, when he found Hunter Renfrow for a four-yard score. Otherwise, Carr was largely unimpressive as he managed only 5.8 yards per attempt, and he also lost a fumble when he was sacked early in the third quarter. Carr will head into a Week 15 matchup against Cleveland having failed to throw for multiple touchdowns in each of his last four games.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Held in check Sunday

    Carr completed 28 of 38 passes for 249 yards in Sunday's 17-15 loss to Washington. While it was a reasonably efficient performance, Carr failed to throw a TD for only the second time all season, and his passing yardage total was also his lowest since that Week 5 dud. The veteran quarterback struggled with a lack of reliable targets -- Hunter Renfrow and Josh Jacobs combined to haul in 18 of his completions -- and that's an issue that isn't likely to improve much in Week 14 against Kansas City.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Big yardage in Big D

    Carr completed 24 of 39 passes for 373 yards and a touchdown in a 36-33 overtime win over the Cowboys on Thanksgiving. He also gained 11 yards on two carries. It was a wild day in Dallas as Carr and Dak Prescott combined for nearly 750 passing yards, but the Raiders QB came out on top with an eight-play drive in the extra frame after the Cowboys went three-and-out on their only possession of OT. It's the sixth time in 11 games Carr has topped 300 yards, with Thursday's total marking his best effort since Week 3. He also didn't throw an interception for the first time since Week 6. The 30-year-old will look to carry that momentum into a Week 13 clash with Washington.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Commits three turnovers

    Carr completed 30 of his 46 passes for 296 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Giants. He also ran twice for five yards and lost a fumble. Carr took to the air more than 40 times for the third time this season, though production didn't follow. He was picked off twice -- one of which was returned for a touchdown -- and he also lost a fumble on a potential game-tying drive with 44 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Carr also failed to record multiple touchdowns for only the second time this season despite the multitude of opportunities to produce. He could be in for a shootout in Week 10 against the Chiefs and will look for a bounceback effort.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Nearly perfect in Week 7 win

    Carr completed 31 of 34 passes for 323 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in Sunday's 33-22 win over the Eagles. The Raiders' first drive of the day ended in the red zone on a pick that deflected off Jalen Richard's hands, but Carr was basically perfect the rest of the way, hitting Foster Moreau in the second quarter for a score and Bryan Edwards in the third. The quarterback has thrown for more than 300 yards and two TDs in five of seven games to begin the season heading into Las Vegas' Week 8 bye.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Rediscovers the big play

    Carr completed 18 of 27 pass attempts for 341 yards and two touchdowns against Denver on Sunday. After averaging less than six yards per pass over the prior two weeks, Carr found a way to get the ball downfield even against a tough Broncos defense in Denver. A 48-yard touchdown strike to Henry Ruggs set the tone in the first quarter, and Bryan Edwards provided a 51-yard reception later. The big plays propelled a strong box score for Carr despite the low pass-attempt volume. He should attempt more passes in upcoming games, so he'll hope to maintain the explosiveness he showed against Denver as the Raiders go back to Vegas to face the Eagles in Week 7.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Second consecutive subdued effort

    Carr completed 22 of 35 passes for 206 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in the Raiders' 20-9 loss to the Bears on Sunday. He also rushed three times for 10 yards and hurt his neck "a little bit" according to head coach Jon Gruden, Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. After a three-game stretch to open the season during which he put up an NFL-high amount of passing yardage, Carr generated a pedestrian total for the second straight game. The Raiders' offense was listless as a whole against what was considered an inferior opponent coming in, and the veteran signal-caller didn't connect for more than 56 yards with any one of his pass catchers. Carr's neck issue doesn't sound overly serious as per Gruden's description, but that will certainly be something to monitor throughout the week ahead of a Week 6 road trip to Denver to tangle with the Broncos.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Slowed by Chargers

    Carr completed 21 of 34 passes for 196 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Monday night's 28-14 loss to the Chargers. Carr was under pressure early and the Raiders offense as a whole struggled in the first half, failing to score while going down 21 points. The signal-caller responded in the third quarter, hitting Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller on third-down touchdown passes to pull Las Vegas within one score. The rally fell short when Carr was intercepted in the fourth, closing out his least impressive performance this season. He's thrown two touchdowns in each outing thus far, but Carr will strive to move the ball better in Week 5 versus the Bears.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Status up in air for Week 3

    Carr underwent an MRI on his ankle Monday and is uncertain for Week 3's matchup against the Dolphins, Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Coach Jon Gruden called Carr "questionable" but also said, "I think he's going to be able to play." Carr spent some time on the ground after taking a hard hit during Sunday's 26-17 win over the Steelers, but he managed to stay in the game and lead Las Vegas to a second straight win, which could bode well for his chances of avoiding any missed time. With Marcus Mariota (quadriceps) on IR, Nathan Peterman would stand to enter the starting lineup if Carr is forced to spend time on the sideline.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Sitting against Rams

    Carr is not starting Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, Paul Gutierrez of reports. Carr also sat out the team's first exhibition game, with Nathan Peterman the only quarterback to play in that contest. Peterman also is starting Saturday's tilt against the Rams and once again could be in for a heavy workload.

  • Raiders' Derek Carr: Entering make-or-break year

    Carr may be facing a make-or-break season in 2021, with the Raiders likely to consider a change at quarterback if they miss the playoffs again, Tashan Reed and Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports. Rumors percolated this offseason regarding the Raiders' desire to seek a replacement under center, despite Carr's career highs for passing yards (4,103) and yards per attempt (7.9) in 2020. The team finished 10th in points scored and 30th in points allowed, so it was no surprise to see the front office ultimately make addressing the defense more of a priority. Carr is back as the starter, but he doesn't have any guarantees remaining on a contract that runs through 2022, and backup Marcus Mariota could eventually make starts if the Raiders are mediocre or subpar again.
