  Raiders | Derek Carr OK after rough game    Mon Oct 15, 04:31 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (arm) is expected to start next week despite suffering a left arm injury in Week 6.

Footballguys view: The Raiders couldn't do much, especially with Carr dinking and dunking his way through the game. Carr was sacked six times and sustained numerous other hits during a drubbing to the Seattle Seahawks in London.

  Raiders | Derek Carr looking for balance    Fri Oct 12, 10:01 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Carr has had an up-and-down season with Gruden. The Raiders have a 1-4 record this year and seem to be going nowhere. Carr has thrown eight interceptions this year after only throwing 13 in the 2017 season. We'll see if he can get more comfortable within the system as the season goes on. Until that time, Fantasy GMs should consider Carr a QB2 and streaming option.

  Raiders | Derek Carr targeted TEs, RBs    Tue Sep 11, 12:17 PM

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.

Footballguys view: It was a way for the Raiders to avoid the Rams secondary...a secondary that still got after Carr and had a pick-six on the night. Against the Broncos secondary in Week 2, the Raiders might take a few more chances with their wideouts.

  Raiders | Derek Carr a quick study    Thu Aug 16, 09:37 PM

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

Footballguys view: The bigger question is whether Amari Cooper will play like a #1 and Jordy Nelson will look better than he did last year with Brett Hundley. Carr is on the fringe of draftable quarterbacks because of the depth of the position.

  Raiders | Derek Carr impressing     Tue Aug 14, 04:52 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Good news out of Raiders camp here. Carr's fit with Gruden is something to monitor closely as training camp and the preseason rolls on. He's got the ability to outperform his current ADP of QB19 (12.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Raiders | Quick exit for Derek Carr    Fri Aug 10, 11:28 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Carr didn't need to do much as the veteran gave way to Connor Cook and E.J. Manuel for the rest of the game. We'll see if new Raiders head coach Jon Gruden and Carr get along in order to get the passing game back on track. They've added weapons to the passing attack like veteran WR Jordy Nelson and Carr has QB1 upside for Fantasy GMs. His current ADP of QB19 (12.10) could make him a value pick.

  Raiders | Derek Carr talks up Jordy Nelson     Sat Jun 9, 12:10 AM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr praised WR Jordy Nelson's attention to detail and said he understands why Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers loved throwing to Nelson.

Footballguys view: Nelson may not be what he used to be, but the veteran receiver should become a favorite target of Carr in the Raiders passing game. He's got a current ADP of WR37 (8.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Raiders | Oakland has been eyeing Martavis Bryant    Thu Apr 26, 11:07 PM

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.

Footballguys view: The best ability is availability and Bryant just hasn't been for much of his career. If he's on the field he could be a nice pairing with Amani Cooper, but he cannot afford to make any mistakes off the field. And the Raiders can't afford for him to make them either.

  Raiders | Derek Carr was bothered by back    Tue Jan 23, 02:17 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Things start to make more sense after the season when this type of information comes out. Carr just didn't look like himself in 2017. Some felt it was because Bill Musgrave was not retained as offensive coordinator but this report indicates it might have had more to do with his health. 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.

  Raiders | Greg Olson raves about Derek Carr    Thu Jan 18, 01:20 PM

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.

Footballguys view: We're hoping Carr can have a bounce-back season in 2018 as this year was a massive disappointment. He has the weapons, and normally a solid offensive line, and a new offensive coordinator could be the thing to get him back to the level of play we saw in 2016.

  Raiders | Issues brewing for Derek Carr?    Thu Jan 4, 09:27 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Carr will have to respond to the tough coaching Gruden will have for him. Gruden likes everybody on the TV broadcast, but he's known to be tough on quarterbacks. Carr has a ton of talent and perhaps Gruden could bring out the best in him...if Carr can put up with the yelling and the critiques.

  Raiders | Derek Carr trusts Jared Cook    Sat Nov 18, 11:58 PM

Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook's ability to stretch defenses down the field is a luxury from the position, according to QB Derek Carr, and Carr said he is comfortable throwing to Cook no matter who is covering him.

Footballguys view: Only Travis Kelce has more 100-yard receiving games among tight ends this year. He's a solid TE1 in what could be a shootout with the Patriots in Mexico City today.

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.

Footballguys view: Carr was able to ring up some yards and his touchdown pass once the Bills opened up a 20-point lead, but he and the Raiders offense had too many turnovers to hang in this one. They are basically in must-win to keep playoff hopes alive mode heading into Miami next week.

  Raiders | Derek Carr expected to play    Mon Oct 9, 06:22 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) is expected to play against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 6, according to head coach Jack Del Rio.

Footballguys view: Carr was going to need 2-6 weeks to recover from the back injury he suffered against the Broncos in Week 4...and it looks like only two weeks were necessary. One has to wonder if the team is rushing him back too soon because the offense lacked spark with E.J. Manuel as the starter against the Ravens in Week 5.
