Raiders | Derek Carr fully guaranteed $40 million (Thu Jun 22, 11:53 AM) - Updating earlier reports, Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is fully guaranteed $40 million and has more than $70 million in total guarantees. He's under contract through 2022.

Our View: Well, we all know the chances of reaching that 2022 finish line are scant, as teams and players tend to renegotiate before the end of a contract. Hence the large amount of guaranteed dollars. Carr continues to improve his game and if he is back 100% healthy as we expect, you can bet he'll be a great option for Fantasy GMs this season.

Raiders | Derek Carr agrees to extension (Thu Jun 22, 10:22 AM) - Updating an earlier report, Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr agreed to a five-year, $125 million extension Thursday, June 22, according to sources. The deal makes him the highest-paid player in team history.

Our View: Well, they say if you like it then you'd better put a ring on it. This is the NFL equivalent and is a no-brainer for Oakland-soon-to-be-Las Vegas. Groan-inducing Dad-Jokes aside, Carr is the best player this team has had in a long time and a clear difference-maker. He will be that for your fantasy team too, and is currently going as the No. 8 quarterback off the board with an overall ADP of 72 in early drafting. With Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree to throw to and Marshawn Lynch running the ball, this could be a very potent offense again this year.

Raiders | Derek Carr deal near completion (Thu Jun 22, 08:29 AM) - Updating previous reports, Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr has a deal in place with the Raiders, and only language remains. It could be finalized this week. Carr could choose to backload the deal because there is no state tax in Nevada and California's tax rate is 13.3 percent. Doing so would save him millions.

Our View: This makes all the sense in the world and is a sane, smart move by the franchise. The backloading of the deal is fascinating for those of you who like finance, but the bottom line is this: Carr is one of the top young quarterbacks in the NFL, and you don't let a guy like that leave.

Raiders | Derek Carr close to extension (Wed Jun 21, 03:01 PM) - Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is close to agreeing on a contract extension that is expected to pay him around $25 million per season, according to sources. The deal could be announced as early as the end of this week.

Our View: Carr is entering the final year of his contract, and the Raiders should get something done to lock him up before the start of training camp. That's been the expectation, and that's the track the two sides seem to be on. The top number for QBs is Andrew Luck ($24.6 million) and Carr should top that. Once he does, expect the contracts for Matthew Stafford and Kirk Cousins to fall in line next.
