The Oakland Raiders are visiting with Iowa tight end Noah Fant on Monday, according to a source. The Raiders have the No. 4, No. 24 and No. 27 picks in the first round of the draft and could definitely go with a tight end with one of those picks after Jared Cook left in free agency this offseason. Lee Smith, Derek Carrier and Luke Willson are the top options currently on Oakland's depth chart. Fant could become the team's top pass-catching tight end immediately if he lands with the Raiders.
The Oakland Raiders are holding a private workout with Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray on Monday in Dallas, a source informed of the situation told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Oakland's staff is expected to work out Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins next. The Raiders brass insists that Derek Carr remains the starter under center, but they are doing their due diligence on the top QB prospects. Oakland has the fourth overall pick in the draft, but Murray could come off the board as early as first overall to the Cardinals. The knock against Murray is that he might not be big enough to succeed at the next level, but his all-around athleticism is pretty impressive.
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 QB Derek Carr would welcome the addition of Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown, in the event Oakland trades for Brown. 'I hope he's in play. It would be great to add a guy like that to your team, talent like that,' Carr told the Fresno Bee on Saturday, March 2.
Fantasy Spin: Duh? It's not really news, per se, but Carr is at least saying the right things ahead of a potential trade for the enigmatic wideout. Brown, arguably the best receiver in the league, is poised to slightly slow down given his age-31 season and having to adjust to a new quarterback. Should Carr be that quarterback, gamers are looking at Brown being no better than a midrange WR1 based on sheer volume alone.
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr was called the team's 'franchise quarterback' by new general manager Mike Mayock on Wednesday, Feb. 27. Mayock went on to say he is also happy with backup QB AJ McCarron. 'I think Derek Carr is a franchise quarterback,' Mayock said. 'I truly believe that. Now, do I also believe that it's a general manager and head coach's job to keep their job open to improve any position on a football team? Sure. But I think it's really difficult to try to improve over a franchise quarterback like the one we have in our building right now.'
Fantasy Spin: Carr has flashed at times and has shown the ability to be a low-end QB1 when all is going well. However, the perennially rebuilding Raiders need to restock the WR cupboard and shore up the offensive line before fantasy faithful can even whisper Carr's name in the No. 1 quarterback conversation. Barring an unexpected move to bolster his receiving corps, Carr remains a fringe QB2 with more downside than positives.
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr's $19.9 million salary for 2019 becomes fully guaranteed Wednesday, Feb. 6.
Fantasy Spin: Carr actually threw for a career-best 4,049 yards and a 68.9 percent completion percentage last season. However, his touchdowns have fallen each of the last three years. He'll be a QB2 with a little upside if the team drafts some weapons around him.
Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles might be traded this offseason, and the Oakland Raiders are a potential fit, in the opinion of 94WIP Radio's Elliott Shorr-Parks. New general manager Mike Mayock has already said Nick Foles is a franchise quarterback, although Derek Carr is in the midst of a five-year, $125 million contract.
Fantasy Spin: This is purely conjecture at this point, but Mayock has talked up Foles. It's hard to believe, though, that the Raiders would give up on Carr with his big contract despite a rough season. For now, it's status quo in Oakland. Carr is only a backup fantasy quarterback.
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 QB Derek Carr completed 24 of his 33 passes for 185 yards and two interceptions in a 35-3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 17.
Fantasy Spin: Carr finished the year with his best completion percentage of his career by a wide margin, but his 19 touchdowns were his fewest ever. Unless Oakland goes out and finds some more offensive weapons in the offseason, Carr is destined to be a lower-end QB2 in 2019.
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 QB Derek Carr completed 19 of 26 passes for 167 yards in the club's Week 16 victory Monday, Dec. 24, versus the Denver Broncos.
Fantasy Spin: It was the type of outing that didn't do anything for fantasy owners but was just enough to get the win for his real-life team. Despite Oakland's disappointing season, Carr actually hasn't had a bad campaign and will be in position to reach the 4,000-yard plateau next week for the first time in his career. Still, though, he's ideally more of a QB2 right now.
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 21-of-38 passes for 263 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Fantasy Spin: Carr has looked a little more comfortable with Jon Gruden over the past couple of games, but he struggled again in this one with just 55.3 percent of his passes completed. He remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 16 against the Denver Broncos on Monday night.
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.
Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has seen some recent success and is in a spot to extend this production. Carr has posted multiple touchdowns in three of his last four games and is now up against the Bengals, who come in with the 27th DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average) versus the pass. This is one of the better matchups on the slate and with the Raiders coming in with an implied team total set at 21, he should be in a spot to produce solid fantasy numbers.
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 25 of his 34 passes for 322 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-21 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14.
Fantasy Spin: Carr has five touchdowns over the past two games, and he could keep the momentum going against the struggling Cincinnati Bengals in Week 15. He's a viable streaming option.
Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was able to lead the team to a surprising victory against the Steelers on Sunday. Carr finished with 322 yards and two touchdowns, which now gives him multiple touchdowns in three of his last four games. This game set up to be a solid game script for the Raiders, as they were 10-point underdogs, but actually kept the game close for the majority of it. Carr has been inconsistent for large portions of the season, but is seemingly putting things together, but right as we hit the fantasy playoffs. The risk will always be there for him, but makes a high-upside play in most weeks.
Raiders' QB Derek Carr passed for 322 yards on 25-of-34 with two touchdowns in Sunday's win against the Steelers.
Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has a middle of the road matchup this week against the Steelers and has a chance to extend his recent success. Carr has posted multiple touchdowns in two of the last three weeks but has under 300 yards in all of those games. There is a bit of upside in this spot since the game has an over-under set at 51, with the Raiders set to be playing from behind. This naturally brings upside for him with his passing upside, which should make him a risky fantasy option, with a bit of multi-touchdown upside, which he is showing in recent weeks.
Oakland Raiders' QB Derek Carr scored 27.05 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 13 loss against the Chiefs. Carr threw for 285 yards on 29-of-38 with three touchdowns.
Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr posted his best game in over a month, but it wasn't enough to beat the Chiefs powerful offense. Carr ended with 285 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions, giving him multiple touchdowns in two of the last three weeks. Carr also now hasn't thrown an interception in seven straight games, which is one of the best streaks in the league right now. Carr and the Raiders offense will continue to be a risky play who have upside, since they should be trailing in most games, requiring them to pass the ball to catch up.
