Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Scores six points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson made his only field-goal attempt as well as all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Bears.

Carlson converted from 41 yards on his lone field goal, continuing his strong start to this season. As he and the Raiders now embark on their bye week, Carlson can take confidence from making 17 of his 18 total kicks thus far, giving him 25 points through five games.

Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Converts all four extra-point tries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson converted his lone field-goal attempt from 26 yards and added four extra points in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Colts.

Carlson has yet to miss an extra point during his young career, while he also remains perfect on field goal attempts from 20-to-29 yards. The Raiders' offense finally got cooking during the first half of Sunday's tilt, but Carlson has attempted no more than one field goal in each of the team's first four contests to begin the season. Next up is a tough matchup in London against the Bears and their elite defensive unit.

Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Misses 51-yarder in return to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson missed his lone field-goal attempt from 51 yards during Sunday's 34-14 loss to the Vikings, though he added a pair of extra points.

Carlson treated Minnesota fans to a familiar sight when he missed from 51 yards out Sunday, having been released by the Vikings due to accuracy concerns during the early stages of his rookie campaign in 2018 after the squad spent a fifth-round pick on him. He ended up converting all three of his attempts from 50-plus yards as a Raider last season, so Oakland shouldn't be hitting the panic button anytime soon.

Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Tallies four points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson converted his lone field-goal attempt from 28 yards and added an extra point in Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Chiefs.

The Raiders' offense was unable to produce any scoring drives throughout the entirety of the second half, limiting Carlson's opportunities as a result. Things won't get any easier in Week 3 as Carlson makes his return to Minnesota, though the indoor environment is a positive for the second-year kicker.

Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Perfect in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson converted his lone field-goal attempt and all three of his extra-point tries in Monday's victory over Denver.

Carlson was tendered by Oakland to an exclusive-rights contract in early March, and it seems to already be paying off for the Raiders. The 24-year-old set a franchise record for accuracy last season (94 percent), although he only attempted 17 field goals over 10 games.

Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Tendered by Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders tendered Carlson to an exclusive-rights contract Thursday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

He only attempted 17 field goals over 10 games with the Raiders last season, but Carlson nonetheless set a franchise record for accuracy (94 percent) while drilling all three of his tries from 50-plus yards. While he'll now stick around in Oakland on a cheap contract, the Raiders offense will need to attempt more than 1.5 field goals per game for Carlson to surface on the fantasy radar.

Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Remains perfect from 50-plus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson made his lone field-goal attempt from 50 yards during Sunday's 35-3 loss to the Chiefs.

Carlson was a rare bright spot for the Raiders during Sunday's blowout loss in Kansas City, as the rookie remained perfect from 50-plus yards. The Auburn product had quite an impressive turnaround following his release from the Vikings, connecting on 16 of 17 field-goal attempts in 10 games with Oakland. Carlson should be brought back by the Raiders in 2019 while the team looks to revamp its offense in the draft with additional weapons to surround quarterback Derek Carr.

Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Stellar showing in divisional win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson connected on field-goal attempts of 43 and 45 yards and also drilled three extra points in the Raiders' 27-14 win over the Broncos on Monday.

The rookie connected on multiple field-goal attempts from beyond 40 yards for the first time in his career Monday, and he extended his streak without a field-goal miss to seven games overall. Carlson also has compiled nine or 10 points in three of his past four games, and he has an 11-point tally on his 2018 ledger as well. The Auburn product has been a definite bright spot for the Raiders in a forgettable transition year, and he'll look to head into the offseason with momentum when Oakland tangles the Chiefs in Week 17.

Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Bright spot in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson converted all three of his field-goal attempts and made his lone extra-point try during Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Bengals.

Carlson is now a perfect two for two from 50-plus yards since becoming a Raider, but also has been perfect in five straight games since the team's bye week. The rookie appears to have put his early-season struggles in the rear-view mirror as a Monday night showdown against the Broncos approaches in Week 16.

Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Contributes to rare victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson converted his lone field-goal attempt from 44 yards and made all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Steelers.

Carlson has now made all seven of his field-goal attempts over the Raiders' past four contests, finding a groove after a brutal start to his rookie campaign. Oakland's offense also has displayed improvements with 57 total points the past two weeks, providing Carlson with additional opportunities to collect points of his own.

Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Continues revival against Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson converted both of his field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 40-33 loss to the Chiefs.

Carlson made his first career field-goal attempt from 50-plus yards Sunday, and he also connected from a respectable 44 yards out as well. The rookie has remained perfect throughout the Raiders' past three contests and will look to maintain momentum against the Steelers in Week 14.

Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Tallies five points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson connected from 42 yards and made both of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Ravens.

Carlson has not missed a single kick in three consecutive games, which is quite an improvement for the rookie after missing four of his first five career field-goal attempts. A Week 13 matchup against the Chiefs could become a high-scoring affair, but the Raiders may be playing from behind once again.

Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Perfect in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson converted all three of his field-goal attempts and both extra-point tries during Sunday's 23-21 win over the Cardinals.

Carlson logged his second consecutive perfect game and played a key role in securing Oakland's Week 11 victory. The rookie fifth-round pick will look to record another solid outing against the Ravens on Sunday.

Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Collects six points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson made both of his field-goal attempts in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Chargers.

Carlson was perfect from 46 and 30 yards to give the Raiders their only six points of the contest, as the team's struggling offense failed to reach the end zone. There could be a lack of scoring opportunities again in Week 11 against a Cardinals defense that just held the Chiefs to a season-low 26 points.

Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Misses from 45 yards in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson made one of two field-goal attempts in Thursday's 34-3 loss to the 49ers.

Carlson has been held to just seven total points in two contests with Oakland, having missed from 45 yards during the Raiders' brutal performance Thursday night. The offense could struggle to move the ball again in Week 10 against the 6-2 Chargers.

Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Collects four points in Raiders debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson connected on all four of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's 42-28 loss to the Colts.

Carlson didn't have a chance to attempt a field goal in his Raiders debut with quarterback Derek Carr racking up a quartet of touchdowns, but the rookie kicker was perfect on extra-point tries. Carlson's brief tenure with Minnesota ended in misery when he missed three crucial field-goal attempts in a Week 2 tie with the Packers, but he'll look to continue building confidence again Thursday night versus the 49ers.

Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Steps in as team's new kicker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson agreed to a contract Tuesday with the Raiders, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Carlson will get his chance at redemption with the Raiders after he was cut by the Vikings following their Week 2 tie with the Packers. During that contest, Carlson missed all three of his field-goal tries, including two potential game-winners in overtime. The Vikings saw enough in the three-time second-team All-American to select him in the fifth round in April's draft, so Carlson at least offers some theoretical upside based on pedigree even if his limited NFL experience to date has been disappointing. Carlson will replace Matt McCrane, who was cut by Oakland in a corresponding move after converting only five of nine field-goal attempts over three games as the team's kicker.

Daniel Carlson: Waived by Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson was waived by the Vikings on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

This news is hardly surprising after Carlson missed three field goals in Sunday's tie with Green Bay -- a game in which Carlson missed a potential game-winner from 35 yards out in overtime. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the Vikings are expected to sign veteran Dan Bailey to replace him.

Vikings' Daniel Carlson: Perfect in pro debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson converted his only field-goal attempt -- from 48 yards -- and made both extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

After missing two field goals in one preseason game, Carlson caused some frayed nerves among Minnesota coaches. He was perfect in his pro debut, but the 2018 fifth-round draft pick may not have a lot of job security should he slump.

Vikings' Daniel Carlson: Rebounds in preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson made both field-goal attempts (from 39 and 22 yards) and his only extra-point attempt in Thursday's preseason win over Tennessee.

Carlson missed both field-goal attempts -- each from 42 yards -- in last week's game after winning the kicking job. His perfect final preseason game should ease some concerns heading into Week 1. Still, Carlson may not have much job security if he struggles early in the season.
