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.

Raiders | Antonio Brown traveling with team (Wed Aug 21, 05:38 PM) - Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown is traveling with the team to Winnipeg for their preseason game Thursday, Aug. 22. QB Derek Carr said he plans to work with Brown during pregame warmups.

Our View: Brown is catching up after missing most of camp and the preseason. He's a risky pick, but if he's falling to the third the risk is better priced in than earlier in the offseason when he was as high as an early second round pick.

Raiders | Derek Carr more comfortable with Jon Gruden (Thu Aug 15, 05:06 PM) - Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr said Thursday, Aug. 15, he is feeling more comfortable talking with head coach Jon Gruden this year than last. 'Year 2, we're having different level of conversations,' Carr said. 'I have two offseasons under my belt, almost two training camps under my belt, I have a full year of experience under my belt, of knowing what checks he wants, what he wants me to get to, what his thought process is on third-and-short, on second-and-short, I know what routes he wants me checking to versus different looks. I'm doing my best just to execute this difficult offense. There's just so much on the quarterback's plate that it's different from some of the other systems that I've been in.'

Our View: Carr has playmakers around him on offense, so it's up to him to translate that into production and points. Getting comfortable with Gruden and his high expectations is nothing but a good thing. Carr could easily outperform his current ADP of QB23 (14.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.
