Raiders' Derek Carr: Could go on trade block
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders could field trade offers for Carr this offseason, Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Carr finished 2020 with career highs for passing yards (4,103), yards per attempt (7.94), passer rating (101.4) and QBR (71.0), leading an offense that ranked 10th in points per game (27.1) and tied for seventh in points per drive (2.5). He's undoubtedly a starting-caliber quarterback, but that won't necessarily stop the Raiders from pursuing an upgrade, which in this case might mean Deshaun Watson. Carr has a reasonable contract with $39.5 million (none guaranteed) due over the next two seasons, so trading him away could help the Raiders stockpile the necessary picks to make an enormous offer for Watson. Apart from the Texans' signal-caller, it isn't clear any of the available quarterback options this offseason would be an upgrade on Carr.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Big effort in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr completed 24 of 38 passes for 371 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions in Sunday's 32-31 win over the Broncos.

The 29-year-old finished the season on a very impressive run, topping 300 yards in four of his last five starts (and not getting a chance to reach the mark in the fifth due to a second-quarter groin injury). Carr compiled his third consecutive 4,000-yard campaign as a result while setting a new career high with 4,103, and while the Raiders could get out of the final two seasons on his current contract fairly easily, his big final month makes it almost certain he'll be back under center for Las Vegas in 2021.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Late-game heroics fall short
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr completed 21 of 34 pass attempts for 336 yards, throwing one touchdown and no interceptions while adding a rushing score and minus-two yards on a pair of carries during Saturday's 26-25 loss to Miami.

The three-time Pro Bowler fought through a groin injury sustained during last Thursday's overtime loss to the Chargers to remain without a missed start on the season. Carr helped lead the Raiders to a would-be game-winning field goal in the final 20 seconds of regulation Saturday by way of a seven-play, 71-yard drive. However, Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Dolphins were able to respond with a field goal-yielding possession of their own to secure the Week 16 win. Carr carries a 25:7 TD:INT into the Raiders' regular-season finale, with playoff ramifications excluded from a matchup against the Broncos given Las Vegas' latest loss.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Set to start Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr is expected to start at quarterback in Saturday's game against the Dolphins, Eddie Paskal of the Raiders' official site reports.

Head coach Jon Gruden didn't confirm whether Carr or Marcus Mariota would start under center prior to the game. Carr led the team out of the tunnel following warmups, indicating that he'll start for the 15th time this year.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Active Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr (groin) is active for Saturday's game versus the Dolphins.

Carr seemed poised to miss time when he pulled up on a run during Week 15 action against the Chargers and was unable to return. Fortunately for Carr, that contest occurred on a Thursday, giving him more than a week to get back to full health. He proceeded to practice in full Wednesday and Thursday, but coach Jon Gruden wouldn't confirm who among Carr or Marcus Mariota would start Week 16. Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reported that Carr threw passes first during warmups, but it remains unclear if he'll indeed be under center for the Raiders' first offensive snap.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr (groin) doesn't carry an injury designation for Saturday night's game against the Dolphins after practicing fully Wednesday and Thursday.

While that suggests Carr is good to go this weekend, Vic Tafur of The Athletic notes that a decision on who will start at QB for the Raiders has yet to be revealed by coach Jon Gruden, who is "optimistic" that Carr will be ready Saturday but isn't "going to let the cat out of the bag," adding that "both (Carr and Marcus Mariota) have prepared to play."

Raiders' Derek Carr: Resumes practicing fully
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr (groin) was a full participant in practice Wednesday.

Just under a week after suffering what was believed to be a significant groin injury in Las Vegas' 30-27 overtime loss to the Chargers, Carr's ability to take every rep in practice is a surprising development, but a welcome one for the playoff-hopeful Raiders. Assuming he experiences no setbacks at Thursday's workout, Carr looks like he'll be in the clear to start Saturday against the Dolphins. Marcus Mariota would be the next man up at quarterback if the Raiders have any reservations about using Carr in Week 16.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Begins week with limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr (groin) practiced on a limited basis Tuesday, Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Carr sustained a significant groin strain in the Raiders' Week 15 loss to the Chargers, leaving his availability in question for Saturday's game against the Dolphins. The quarterback's ability to take some reps in the team's first practice of the week can be taken as a positive sign, but head coach Jon Gruden was unwilling to rule on Carr's status for Saturday this early in the week. If Carr can't gain clearance for the Week 16 matchup, Marcus Mariota would be in store for his first start of the season.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Looking unlikely for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr is expected to face a 10-to-14-day recovery timeline after suffering a "significant groin injury" Thursday in the Raiders' 30-27 overtime loss to the Chargers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Raiders will have from a longer turnaround for their Week 16 game, but given the timeline provided by Rapoport, Carr looks hard-pressed to make it back for the team's Dec. 26 matchup with the Dolphins. That said, Carr will likely do everything in his power to try and play through the painful injury, so his status will need to be monitored next week when the Raiders reconvene for practice. At this stage, Marcus Mariota is a likelier candidate than Carr for the Week 16 starting nod.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Injury significant, but not tear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jon Gruden said after Thursday's 30-27 overtime loss to the Chargers that Carr's groin injury is "significant" but not a tear, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

That would seem to rule out a worst-case scenario for Carr, who pulled up awkwardly early in the first half due to a non-contact groin injury. Marcus Mariota filled in admirably in emergency duty, throwing for 226 yards with a touchdown while also setting a franchise record at the QB position with 88 rushing yards and another TD. However, Mariota also threw a gut-wrenching interception near the Chargers' end zone with less than two minutes on the clock. Carr will benefit from a few extra days of rest before the Raiders next suit up on Dec. 26 versus the Dolphins, but if he can't go, Mariota has at least proven the ability to competently command this offense.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Won't return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr (groin) is ruled out to return to Thursday's game against the Chargers.

Carr was ruled out just as the second quarter began, which paves the way for Marcus Mariota to conclude Thursday's contest under center. He only had a chance to complete three of five passes for 53 yards before being forced out with a non-contact groin injury. Carr will benefit from a bit of extra time to get healthy ahead of the Raiders' Dec. 26 tilt against the Dolphins.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Limps off Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr (groin) limped off the field and into the locker room in the first quarter of Thursday's game against the Chargers, Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Carr pulled up awkwardly while scrambling near the goal line on a third down play, evidently suffering a non-contact groin injury. He's officially questionable to return. Marcus Mariota will helm Las Vegas' offense if Carr isn't able to return for the next offensive series.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Accounts for three TDs vs. Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr connected on 31 of 45 attempts for 316 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions Sunday against the Colts. He also carried three times for 12 yards and a touchdown in the 44-27 loss.

Carr completed an impressive 69 percent of his passes and delivered his third-best yardage total of the season against an excellent Colts defense. He connected on touchdown passes to Foster Moreau and Nelson Agholor before adding a rushing score of his own, but his interception before halftime led to a field goal, and his pick-six in the fourth quarter all but guaranteed his team the loss. This was Carr's first game this season with multiple interceptions. He'll look to bounce back Thursday against a Chargers defense that has been burned by lesser passers this season.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Carves up Jets in wild win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr completed 28 of 47 passes for 381 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 31-28 win over the Jets. He added five yards and a touchdown on two rushing attempts.

Carr was intercepted on Vegas' first drive but bounced back with touchdowns of nine and 38 yards to Darren Waller to take a 17-13 lead into the locker room. The quarterback took matters into his own hands with a two-yard rushing score for a 24-13 lead in the third quarter, but the Jets took over from there and had Vegas on the ropes until Carr dropped in the game-winning 46-yard touchdown to Henry Ruggs with five seconds left. Carr rewarded fantasy managers who looked his way against the winless Jets, but he faces a much tougher test with the Colts coming to town in Week 14.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Fumbles galore in Week 12 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr completed 22 of 34 pass attempts for 215 yards, throwing no touchdowns and committing one interception during Sunday's 43-6 loss to the Falcons. He also fumbled three times, losing all three to the opposition.

It was a disastrous day for Carr, with his third-quarter interception to Deion Jones going for a 67-yard pick-six. The quarterback's three fumbles resulted in a combined 13 points for Atlanta, and he was unable to muster a passing TD for the second time over his past three outings. A Week 13 matchup against the Jets should provide relief, with New York ranking 29th in completions allowed and 28th in passing yardage surrendered to opposing QBs this season. What's more, Jets defensive backs Brian Poole (shoulder), Bless Austin (neck) and Bradley McDougald (shoulder) are all currently residing on injured reserve.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Steps it up on SNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr completed 23 of 31 pass attempts for 275 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 35-31 loss to Kansas City.

Carr resumed his early-season success after a rough three-week stretch that saw the signal caller average just 143.3 yards per game and a mediocre mark of 6.0 yards per attempt. The seven-year pro has shown that he still can play above league average when the game script asks him to make plays down the field. There is a pretty clear pattern of identifying when Carr will provide the volume necessary to be a relevant asset in fantasy. Two of the three games during his recent skid came against teams that control the ball with a run-heavy gameplan (Cleveland and Denver), and he failed to top 30 pass attempts in all three contests. If we exclude those low-usage games, Carr has eclipsed the 30-attempt mark in every other start, almost all of which have come against teams with high-octane passing attacks. Next week's opponent, the Atlanta Falcons, would fall into the latter category, which bodes well for Carr's fantasy outlook in Week 12.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Attempts reduced in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr completed 16 of 25 attempts for 154 passing yards, throwing no touchdowns and no interceptions during Sunday's 37-12 win against the Broncos. He also logged 10 rushing yards on four carries.

Las Vegas' ground attack was working in full effect during a dominant divisional win, generating 5.0 yards per carry and punching in four scores. With a multi-possession lead in place throughout the fourth quarter, Carr's passing volume was reduced for a third consecutive outing. The three-time Pro Bowler attempted 25 or fewer passes Weeks 8, 9 and 10, with each outing resulting in a Las Vegas win (and two coming by double digits). Though fantasy production has been down with his defense holding opponents to 14.7 points per game in November, Carr's Raiders stand at 6-3, while he personally boasts a 16:2 TD:INT heading into a Week 11 home game against the Chiefs.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Tosses two TDs in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr completed 13 of 23 passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-26 win over the Chargers. He also gained 14 rushing yards on two carries.

It's the second straight game in which Carr has thrown for under 200 yards, but the sixth time in eight starts he's tossed multiple TDs. With the Raiders beginning to lean heavily on Josh Jacobs and the running game, Carr might have more low-volume afternoons ahead, but Week 10's clash with a Broncos defense that's been stingier on the ground than through the air could give him a chance to post better numbers.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Manages Raiders to Week 8 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr completed 15 of 24 pass attempts for 112 yards and one touchdown, adding six rushes for 41 yards during Sunday's 16-6 win against the Browns.

Carr was held to one or fewer passing touchdowns for the first time since Week 1, but he has Las Vegas situated at 4-3 with a second win over the team's past three contests. The 29-year-old has struggled with fumbles thus far in 2020 (four lost), but a key reason the Raiders are winning is that Carr has limited his interceptions. The three-time Pro Bowler has thrown to a sterling 14:2 TD:INT this season while completing an uber-efficient 71.1 percent of his passes. A Week 9 AFC West matchup against the last-place Chargers provides potential for Carr to enjoy a solid statistical performance after Los Angeles surrendered three fourth-quarter TD passes to the Broncos on Sunday.

Raiders' Derek Carr: Pair of TDs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carr completed 24 of 36 passes for 284 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the Raiders' 45-20 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also rushed twice for 19 yards and fumbled once, but it was recovered by the offense.

Carr and the Raiders appeared to be on their way to a prolific afternoon after the veteran quarterback hit Nelson Agholor with a perfect 20-yard scoring strike on a post pattern early in the first quarter. However, Carr was able to lead only one other first-half scoring march -- one that culminated in a 42-yard field goal -- and added just a one-yard scoring toss to Darren Waller the rest of the way as far as fantasy impact plays are concerned. However, Carr's numbers weren't bad in a cumulative sense, as he managed multiple TDs for the fifth straight contest and posted his third-highest yardage tally of the season. With the blowout loss now behind them, Carr and his teammates will look to atone in Week 8 against the Browns.
