Summary

Derek Carr shouldered much of the blame for Oakland's disappointing 4-12 season in 2018. However, he did set career highs in completion percentage (68.9%) and passing yards (4,049) despite spending most of the season throwing to the worst group of wide receivers in the NFL. He also showed some resiliency after a brutal start to the season. Carr had eight interceptions through the first five games of the 2018 season, steadied the ship, and put together a streak of 10 straight games without an interception after the rough start. When the Raiders offense struggled, it was often due to breakdowns in pass protection. Oakland went out and paid top dollar to add Trent Brown at offensive tackle to fix the problem. The Raiders also made huge upgrades at wide receiver, adding Antonio Brown via trade and Tyrell Williams in free agency. With better surrounding talent, Carr should be able to improve upon his 2018 numbers. While Carr isn't likely to put up huge numbers, he does have a shot to be a solid QB2 in Superflex leagues.
