Player Outlook
Carlson was among the best Fantasy kickers in 2021, and he has the chance for another outstanding season this year. He's worth drafting with a last-round pick in all leagues. Last season, Carlson made an NFL-best 40 field goals on 43 attempts, including going 6 of 7 from 50-plus yards. He only scored 30 PATs, but the Raiders offense should improve this season with the addition of Davante Adams, which should give Carlson more scoring chances. We like Carlson as a top-10 Fantasy kicker heading into 2022.

  • Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Nails OT winner

    Carlson converted all five of his field-goal attempts and added two extra points in Sunday's 35-32 overtime win over the Chargers. Carlson had one of the best games of his entire career on Sunday Night Football. He ultimately sent the Chargers home without a playoff berth, thanks in part to multiple 40-plus yard makes in overtime, as the Raiders advance to play in Cincinnati on Saturday. Carlson wraps up his stellar 2021 regular season with a career-high 40 field goals made on 43 attempts, also tallying 30 extra points on 33 tries.

  • Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Raiders-Browns moved to Monday

    Carlson 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, Carlson 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' Daniel Carlson: Misses XP in Kansas City

    Carlson made his only field-goal attempt from 26 yards in Sunday's 48-9 loss to the Chiefs, but he also missed an extra-point try. A failed extra point in Arrowhead Stadium is not what the Raiders wanted to see after inking Carlson to a four-year, $18.4 million contract extension earlier in the week, but the Auburn product still improved to 28 of 31 on field-goal attempts this season. Carlson's job might not get any easier Week 15, however, as windy conditions potentially await in Cleveland on Saturday afternoon.

  • Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Shakes off illness

    Carlson (illness) was estimated as a full participant in Tuesday's walk-through practice. Carlson wasn't available for Monday's walk-through practice while he dealt with the illness, but his ability to practice in full a day later clears the way for him to play Thanksgiving Day in Dallas. The fourth-year kicker has converted on 19 of 22 field-goal tries and 20 of 22 extra-point attempts through the Raiders' first 10 games.

  • Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Sits out walkthrough practice

    Carlson was a non-participant in Monday's walkthrough practice due to an illness. Carlson apparently is under the weather after he knocked down all three of his kicks (two field goals and an extra point) in Sunday's 32-13 loss to the Bengals. Per Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Raiders haven't described Carlson's illness as COVID-19-related, though the kicker did contract the virus in training camp. Carlson will have a few days to regain health before the Raiders travel to Dallas for a Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Cowboys.

  • Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Makes only kick

    Carlson made his only field-goal try but did not attempt an extra point in Sunday's 20-9 loss to the Bears. Carlson converted from 31 yards on his lone kick of the game, but his decreased opportunities have now seen him post just five points over his last two outings. That recent decline suddenly places Carlson outside the top 10 among kickers league-wide in points (39) through five games.

  • Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Misses 52-yarder on MNF

    Carlson made a pair of extra points in Monday's 28-14 loss to the Chargers, but he missed his only field-goal attempt from 52 yards. Carlson had yet to miss a field goal this season before his 52-yard attempt sailed wide left with just over 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Prior to Monday, he'd made six consecutive attempts from 50-plus dating to Week 1 of the 2020 regular season, so he'll look to bounce back against the Bears in Week 5.

  • Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Signs tender Thursday

    Carlson signed his restricted free agent tender from the Raiders on Thursday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports. In March, Las Vegas extended Carlson a second-round tender, a price that other organizations were unlikely to pay. Thus, he's back in the desert for a second consecutive year and a member of the Raiders for a fourth campaign. Carlson is coming off his best statistical season, when he connected on 33 of 35 field-goal attempts (94 percent) and 45 of 47 point-after tries (96 percent).

  • Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Garners second-round tender

    The Raiders extended Carlson a second-round tender Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Carlson was outstanding for the Raiders in 2020, making 33 of 35 field-goal attempts and 45 of 47 extra-point tries en route to a single-season franchise record of 144 points. This should prevent an offer sheet for Carlson, who will earn $3.384 million in 2020 if he signs the tender.

  • Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Sets franchise record

    Carlson made his only field-goal attempt and buried all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 32-31 win over the Broncos. Carlson missed just two of 35 total field-goal attempts during an impressive 2020 campaign and also made 45 of 47 extra-point tries. His 144 points set the franchise record for most points scored in a single season, which was previously held by Raiders legend Sebastian Janikowski. Carlson's stellar closing stretch earned him AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for December, helping him gain momentum ahead of restricted free agency this offseason. Las Vegas likely plans to lure him back.

  • Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Misses XP in one-point loss

    Carlson made all four of his field-goal attempts and converted one of two extra-points tries in Saturday's 26-25 loss to the Dolphins. Carlson's first extra-point miss since Week 5 proved costly as the Raiders ultimately suffered a one-point loss to be removed from playoff contention. The Auburn product's four field goals marked a season high, however, but three of them were booted from 23 yards or less. Carlson has now gone three consecutive games without attempting a field goal from 40-plus.
