Summary

On paper, Derek Carr had a strong 2019 season. His 8.0 adjusted yards per attempt in 2019 ranked 10th-best in the NFL, his 70.4% completion percentage was 2nd behind only Drew Brees, and he posted a QB rating (100.8) that was 9th-best. He is a competent NFL starter with solid accuracy and he has made big improvements over the last season and a half in terms of taking care of the ball. However, the Raiders have struggled through three straight losing seasons with Carr at the helm and he has a 39-55 career record. The 29-year old has had a winning just once in his six seasons. He struggles to make plays outside of the structure of the offense and does not always deal with pressure well. From a fantasy perspective, Carr has very little upside. His 4,054 passing yards last season were a career high and he has averaged just 20.7 passing touchdowns per season over the last three years. The addition of some young talent at wide receiver could help but it is hard to see Carr as anything more than a low-end QB2 for fantasy. (May 2)
