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 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.

Vikings' Daniel Carlson: Misses two field-goal attempts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson missed both field-goal attempts, each from 42 yards, in Friday's preseason win over Seattle. The Vikings went for two two-point attempts after Carlson's field-goal misses. "If he's going to miss them, I'm going to let him know we're going to go for two," head coach Mike Zimmer told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Carlson won the kicking job earlier in the week when the team released Kai Forbath. Zimmer may just be sending a message to Carlson, but his stark statements could mean Carlson won't have much job security early in the season if he struggles.

Vikings' Daniel Carlson: Wins kicking job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson has won the Vikings' kicker job, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The team released Kai Forbath on Monday, ending the competition halfway through the preseason. Carlson's status as a fifth-round pick made him the favorite all along, and Forbath probably lost his chance when the rookie nailed a 57-yard field goal and four extra-point attempts in the first week of the preseason. Given the overall strength of his team, Carlson is worth considering as a borderline top-10 kicker. The Vikings tied for eighth in field-goal attempts (38) and ninth in extra-point attempts (39) last season.

Vikings' Daniel Carlson: Converts lone extra point versus Jags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson converted his only extra point opportunity and did not attempt a field goal during Saturday's 14-10 preseason loss to the Jaguars.

The most important development for Carlson didn't even come off his own foot, as veteran Kai Forbath clanked a 41-yard field goal attempt off the upright in the second quarter. The rookie didn't receive many opportunities to generate points, but he could get the first crack at field-goal opportunities next week against the Seahawks. The kickers are locked in a position battle, and Carlson could have his opportunity to inch ahead after Saturday's developments.

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

Carlson converted both field-goal attempts, including a 57-yarder, and made all four extra-point attempts in Saturday's preseason win over Denver.

Carlson handled all the field-goal and extra-point attempts while Kai Forbath handled kickoffs. It's likely the two will switch roles in the second preseason game. It's just one preseason game, but Carlson may have moved ahead of Forbath in the battle for the placekicker job with an impressive game.
