    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (arm) is expected to start next week despite suffering a left arm injury in Week 6. Carr was sacked six times and sustained numerous other hits during a drubbing to the Seattle Seahawks in London.

    Huddle Up: Carr and the Raiders are floundering in Jon Gruden's first year back with the club. The whole organization needs the upcoming bye week in a big way in hopes of getting back on track. View Carr as a backup fantasy quarterback until further notice.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 5:09pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 23-of-31 passes for just 142 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Carr has won just one of his six starts this season in Jon Gruden's NFL return. It hasn't been an offensive showcase like many thought it would, and Carr was a fantasy bust this week in London. If you normally drive Carr in fantasy you'll need to park him in Week 7 with the team on a bye.

  • Posted: 10/12/2018 7:01pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr said there is a 'fine line' between making aggressive throws and playing it safe, and he believes his decision making will improve as he continues to learn head coach Jon Gruden's offensive system.

    Huddle Up: Carr has put up some strong yardage totals this year, but he has seven touchdowns compared to eight interceptions and has had multiple turnovers in three of the five games. Until he starts taking care of the ball, he is going to be in the QB2 range.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 8:26pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 35-of-58 passes for 437 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Carr had a huge game in this 45-42 shootout against Baker Mayfield and the Browns, securing the team's first victory of the season. He has managed 288 or more yards in all four outings, including three 300-yard games. This was Carr's first game with multiple TDs, however. He'll try to carry over the momentum into Week 5 against the Chargers.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 5:23pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 27-of-39 passes for 345 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 3 game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Carr had his second 300-yard game, and he has at least 288 passing yards in each of his three outings, but he has just two TDs and five INTs. It's been an ugly start for the Raiders, but Carr remains a decent fantasy option going forward. He'll jack it up early and often, especially if the team continues to lose. The Raiders host Baker Mayfield and the Browns in Week 4.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 11:13pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 90.6 percent of his passes (29-for-32) for 288 yards, 1 TD and 0 INTs during the team's loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Sept. 16.

    Huddle Up: After getting called out in not-so-subtle fashion by Gruden, Carr responded with crisp passing and improved decision making. On the down side, the Silver and Black never scored again after Carr found Seth Roberts midway through the third quarter and watched a 12-point lead turn into a one-point loss. Still, Carr showed enough that he should be carried on rosters as a decent backup.

  • Posted: 9/11/2018 9:17am ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr targeted wide receivers on nine of his 39 passes Monday, Sept. 10, in the season-opening 33-13 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, marking the team's fewest in a game since 2010, according to Sportradar US. He completed five of those nine passes for 43 yards. Meanwhile, Carr completed 24-of-30 targets to tight ends and running backs.

    Huddle Up: Coach Jon Gruden's game plan obviously was to shy away from the Rams' talented new cornerback duo of Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters, and while it resulted in a career night for TE Jared Cook (nine catches for 180 yards), Amari Cooper's fantasy owners had to settle for one reception for nine yards. Frustrating to be sure, but it was just one week against a talented defense so definitely don't panic over Cooper or fellow WR Jordy Nelson just yet.

  • Posted: 9/10/2018 10:49pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 29-of-40 passes for 303 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 1 loss against the Los Angeles Rams on Monday, Sept. 10.

    Huddle Up: Carr didn't settle into much of a groove in his first game under the tutelage of Jon Gruden, and his last interception was returned for touchdown by Marcus Peters. He and the Raiders offense will try to bounce back in Week 2 on the road against the Denver Broncos.

  • Posted: 8/22/2018 1:12pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr will play into the second quarter in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 24 against the Green Bay Packers, head coach Jon Gruden said.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners like the sound of that, as they'll get a chance to see their quarterback get his timing down with the starters in game action, but the risk of injury is limited since it doesn't sound like he'll be playing into the second half. Carr will be a solid low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues again in 2018.

  • Posted: 8/16/2018 6:37pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr has already 'mastered' the offense, according to head coach Jon Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Gruden's offense could help bring out the best in Carr, but he'd need to make a sizeable leap to join the QB1 conversation. Consider him a solid backup option.

  • Posted: 8/14/2018 1:52pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr has been vocal, directive and fluent in head coach Jon Gruden's offense so far. The command of the offense Carr has shown is evident.

    Huddle Up: Carr needs a bounce-back year after a disappointing 2017 campaing. Gruden and his regime may be the spark that ignites that rebound. As for fantasy purposes, Carr just doesn't throw for enough yards or enough touchdowns to have his name included with those in QB1 territory.

  • Posted: 8/10/2018 8:28pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr played one series against the Detroit Lions in the preseason opener Friday, Aug. 10, completing two of his four passes for 11 yards.

    Huddle Up: There is a chance that Jon Gruden could help Carr take his performance to the next level this year, but he is likely headed for another season of QB2 production.

  • Posted: 4/26/2018 8:07pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant can be a 'dynamic receiver' for quarterback Derek Carr, according to general manager Reggie McKenzie, and McKenzie said Oakland had been working on trading for Bryant for some time.

    Huddle Up: Bryant has plenty of upside because of his big-play ability, but he has to stay on the field and show some consistency. He is worth taking a chance on as a WR4.

  • Posted: 1/23/2018 11:17am ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) admitted that a back injury suffered in Week 4 did impact his play throughout the course of the season. 'Injuries will never be something I talk about, especially during the season, but since it's after the season, the [back issue] was one of those things that was there,' Carr said. The fourth-year quarterback suffered three transverse process fractures and said he wanted to deal with the injury instead of using it as an excuse.

    Huddle Up: Carr's determination and toughness are admirable, but one wonders just how much the injury affected his play. At full health Carr is no more than a fringe QB1, but drafting him as a QB2 is on the safe side.

  • Posted: 1/18/2018 10:20am ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr was given high praise from new offensive coordinator Greg Olson. Olson opined that Carr's football intelligence is 'off the charts' and spoke highly of the quarterback's physical talent, accuracy and quick release.

    Huddle Up: It's encouraging for an offensive coordinator to speak fondly of his quarterback, but Carr has largely disappointed in fantasy circles, particularly in 2017. There is a good opportunity for a fresh start, though, with a new coaching staff. Oakland still has one of the best offensive lines and receiver duos in football. For now, view Carr as a high-end QB2 with QB1 upside.

  • Posted: 1/4/2018 6:27pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr's personality may not mesh well with Jon Gruden's style if Gruden becomes the head coach of the Oakland Raiders, according to a league source.

    Huddle Up: Carr took a step backwards in 2017 and was one of the bigger disappointments in fantasy circles. If Gruden does become the coach, his tough love could bring out the best in Carr. He shouldn't be drafted as a QB1 next year, but Carr could be a nice buy-low candidate as a QB2.

  • Posted: 12/25/2017 9:12pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 15-of-29 passes for 147 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in the team's Week 16 defeat Monday, Dec. 25, versus the Philadelphia Eagles. He also added three rushing yards on three carries.

    Huddle Up: Yikes, this was arguably Carr's worst performance of the entire season, and it couldn't come at a worse time for owners who were electing to start him in fantasy championship matchups. Even with an upgrade in Oakland's running game this year, Carr took a notable step backwards after two terrific campaigns that led to a lot of people backing him. He certainly won't be a recommended QB1 going into 2018.

  • Posted: 12/9/2017 8:06pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr faces the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14, and the first time these teams met this season, Carr threw for a season-high 417 yards and three touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: It has been a disappointing season for Carr overall, but a rematch with Kansas City could be just what the doctor ordered. The Chiefs have allowed the fifth-most passing yards this year, and Carr could be in line for another QB1 performance against his division rival.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 8:20pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 22 of his 36 pass attempts for 287 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 13 game against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Carr has thrown at least one touchdown in each of his 11 games, but he has one or fewer TD strikes in seven of the past nine outings. His yardage totals have kept him in the mix as a low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 7:03pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 18 of his 24 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns in a 21-14 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: You have to go back to Week 7 to find the last game when Carr threw multiple touchdowns and didn't throw an interception. He could be a streaming option in Week 13 against the New York Giants, but make sure to check on the status of Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree before committing to Carr.

  • Posted: 11/6/2017 5:33am ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr was 21-for-30 for 300 yards, a touchdown and one interception against the Miami Dolphins Sunday, Nov. 5.

    Huddle Up: He's throwing for a ton of yardage, but his 13-to-7 touchdown to interception ratio in eight games leaves much to be desired. He's a midrange QB1 for now.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 2:48pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 31 of his 49 pass attempts for 313 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Carr did a pretty decent job against a stout Buffalo defense in windy and cool conditions in Buffalo. He should find the weather and matchup more favorable on Monday night in Miami in Week 9.
