Derek Carr News
With the overhaul in receiving corps this offseason, Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is in a prime spot to bounce back to fantasy relevance in 2019. Jared Cook's departure is a significant blow after leading the team in receiving yards last season, but the additions of Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams will undoubtedly pick up the slack left in his absence. Carr will also be backed behind an improved offensive line and an upgraded rush attack with first-round rookie Josh Jacobs to hand the ball off to confidently. The 28-year-old struggled with consistency in 2018 throwing 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, but only threw two picks since Week 6 with both coming in the season finale in Week 17. Carr can be drafted as a QB2, but has a higher ceiling in a revamped offense and could assert himself as a steady quarterback to stream if he finds the chemistry with his new teammates.
Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden confirmed that Derek Carr will be the team's starting quarterback in 2019. While the Raiders believe in Carr, they will still send personnel to meet with Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray and Ohio State signal-caller Dwayne Haskins. The Raiders own the fourth overall pick in the first round of this year's draft, one of three first-round picks for Oakland. Carr, 28 on March 28, threw for a career-high 4,049 yards in 2018 with a 68.9 percent completion percentage, but he had just a career-low 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions over a full season. Gaining receivers Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams will help, but he's also losing safety blanket Jared Cook at tight end. Draft Carr as a QB2 with upside.
Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr turned in a terrible performance to end the season against the Chiefs. Carr finished with only 185 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions. These were his first interceptions since Week 5, which is a nice streak, but ultimately, a meaningless streak in a lackluster season. His fantasy value all season was extremely hit or miss, which should continue into next season, making him a low-end fantasy quarterback.
Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has a slow game, but it was enough to beat the Broncos in their home finale this season. Carr ended with only 167 yards, no touchdowns, and no interceptions, but that was enough to come away with the win. The rushing game was a large part of their success, along with special teams, which caused Carr to have a slower game. Next week, he will be up against the Chiefs who have a bad pass defense and was able to attack when they played earlier in the season. Carr finished with 285 yards and three touchdowns in that game, which is a level of production he should be able to replicate to close out the season.
Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr wasn't able to produce solid fantasy numbers despite facing the Bengals and their soft defense. Carr ended with 263 yards and only one touchdown, along with being sacked five times. He came into this week with multiple touchdowns in three of his last four games but was unable to extend that streak against the Bengals. His up and down production has continued as we reach the end of the season and will see his fantasy value slip away due to this inconsistency.
