Daniel Carlson Healthy For Week 14

Las Vegas Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson nailed both extra-point attempts and went one for two on his field goal attempts in Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Raiders kicker was on the injury report earlier this week with an illness that caused him to miss practice on Thursday, but he logged a full practice on Friday. Carlson was removed from the injury report before their Week 14 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. Playing at home will benefit Carlson as he won't have to deal with the weather factor. Carlson will be relied upon in what should be a close game on Sunday.

Daniel Carlson Absent From Practice With Illness

Las Vegas Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson (illness) did not participate in practice on Thursday. The Raiders have added Carlson to the injury report as a DNP for Thursday's session due to an illness, suddenly threatening his ability to suit up for Sunday's interconference tilt against the Minnesota Vikings. We'll see if Carlson is feeling better on Friday. The 28-year-old former All-Pro has yielded shaky results this season, hitting 83.3% of his 24 field-goal attempts after burying at least 90% of his tries in each of the prior three years. Las Vegas would likely need to find an emergency option off the scrap heap if Carlson's illness ends up costing him Week 14, as they don't currently employ a second kicker on their practice squad.

Daniel Carlson Healthy For Week 9

Las Vegas Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson nailed both of his extra-point attempts on Monday night in the loss to the Detroit Lions. Carlson was on the injury report earlier this week with a groin injury but logged three limited practices. The Raiders kicker was removed from the injury report before their Week 9 matchup against the New York Giants. In what should be a close game, Carlson may be more impactful on the outcome of the matchup.

Daniel Carlson Remains Limited In Practice

Las Vegas Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson (groin) remained a limited participant during Thursday's practice. The 28-year-old entered last week with a groin injury, but played through the issue. It's possible that he does it again, but groin issues have a tendency to be tricky. Right now, it seems like the Raiders are being cautious with Carlson. He should be able to suit up in Week 9 to play the New York Giants. However, he's not exactly a great fantasy option right now. The Raiders are expected to move forward with Aidan O'Connell as their starting quarterback. That being said, it's unlikely the Raiders put Carlson in position to kick many field goals.

Daniel Carlson Limited By Groin Ailment

Las Vegas Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson (groin) was listed as limited in Wednesday's practice due to a right-groin injury. Carlson was in danger of missing the Monday night game against the Detroit Lions in Week 8, but he ultimately suited up. The 28-year-old booter wasn't afforded a field-goal try and made both of his extra points in the 26-14 loss to Detroit. Barring a setback with his groin this week, Carlson should be active in Week 9 to face the New York Giants. Since Monday night, the Raiders shook things up by firing head coach Josh McDaniels, general manager Dave Ziegler and offensive coordinator Mick Lombardi. They are also benching quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in favor of rookie Aidan O'Connell. It all adds up to Carlson being a fantasy kicker to avoid for the foreseeable future.

Daniel Carlson Will Kick Against Lions On Monday Night

Las Vegas Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson (groin), who was listed as questionable for the Monday night game against the Detroit Lions, will kick for the team to close out Week 8, according to a league source. The Raiders promoted kicker James McCourt from the practice squad for Monday's game in case Carlson was unable to go, but it appears they'll have their regular kicker for this one. The 28-year-old missed practice on Thursday and Friday before returning to a limited session on Saturday. It's not a great matchup on Monday night for Carlson, and on top of it, he's taken a big fall in terms of fantasy value in 2023, averaging just six fantasy points per game. That mark has him tied for 27th in the league.

Daniel Carlson Tagged As Questionable

Las Vegas Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson (groin) is listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Detroit Lions, per Anthony Galaviz of The Fresno Bee. Carlson didn't practice on Thursday or Friday due to a groin issue but managed limited activity during Saturday's session, tentatively putting him on course to play. Perhaps the injury could explain some of the 2022 All-Pro's troubles this season, as Carlson is converting only 78.6% of his field goals (11-of-14). The Raiders would likely promote 25-year-old James McCourt from their practice squad if Carlson were unable to give it a go Monday. In this case, McCourt would act as an emergency kicking substitute if Lions kicker Riley Patterson is already rostered for fantasy managers relying on Carlson's slot for production to close out the Week 8 slate.

Daniel Carlson A Low-End Kicking Option In Week 3

Las Vegas Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson has been stellar when called upon so far in 2023, the problem is that has not been often enough. The 27-year-old is two-for-two on field goals and three-for-three on extra points for a Las Vegas offense that ranks 31st in points and 30th in yards after two weeks. The Raiders welcome the Steelers to town on Sunday night, a team giving up 11.5 fantasy points to opposing kickers so far this year. Carlson is an incredible talent weighed down by a below-average offense, making him a low-end kicker for fantasy managers at this point in the season despite the promising matchup.

Daniel Carlson Not Busy In Week 2

Las Vegas Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson was 2-for-2 on his kicks on Sunday with one extra point and one 47-yard field goal. The Raiders struggled to move the ball after their opening drive in a 38-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills. They only mustered 240 total offensive yards, including only two first downs on the ground. Carlson is one of the league's premier kickers, but without much opportunity, he remains a low-end kicking option.

Daniel Carlson - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

Las Vegas Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson has been a strong and steady leg across his six-year NFL career. The 28-year-old had a mundane start to the season last week, tallying one field goal and two extra points in a nail-biting win for the Raiders over the Broncos. Las Vegas has a matchup in Buffalo in Week 2. With a 47-point over/under and 19-point implied total for the Raiders, their offense is not expected to move the ball particularly well. Carlson's leg makes him a starting option in the majority of leagues every week, but the limitations of his offense limit his ceiling. He can be seen as a low-end starting kicker for fantasy managers this week.
