Outlook

Carr was a second round selection for the Oakland Raiders and is their next "quarterback of the future" and apparently now their quarterback of the present. A strong preseason and Matt Schaub's struggles have led him to be named the week 1 starter. Carr had a monster season at Fresno State in 2013, becoming only the 4th FBS quarterback to throw for 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns. Carr is athletic quarterback with a good arm, but some question how much of his production was a result of the spread offense run at Fresno State. His quick release and arm talent will assure he gets a long look. The Raiders offensive line could make things difficult on the rookie.

Raiders | Derek Carr entering critical season (Wed Jul 10, 01:36 AM) - Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is signed through 2022, but he has no more guaranteed money on his contract beyond this season, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano. While Carr would be guaranteed $2.9 million of his $18.9 million salary for the 2020 season if he's still on the roster a week after Super Bowl LIV, he would be owed nothing if he were released before then.

Our View: The Raiders went out of their way this offseason to put much better weapons around Carr this year. Just acquiring Antonio Brown via trade should help elevate Carr's game. Add in guys like Tyrell Williams and rookie RB Josh Jacobs and you can see how the Raiders offense should be much improved in 2019. With three first-round picks in the 2019 NFL draft, the Raiders did not choose a quarterback. They have given Carr a vote of confidence, and now he needs to produce. Carr could easily outperform his current ADP of QB23 (14.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.
