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)

Raiders | Derek Carr primed for best season? (Mon Aug 10, 10:23 PM) - Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr is poised to have the best season of his career as he'll be playing with the best supporting cast of his career, including RB Josh Jacobs, TE Darren Waller and rookie WR Henry Ruggs III, in the opinion of NFl.com analyst Adam Rank.

Our View: Carr may be poised to do that but first he must win the starting job. The Raiders went out and added QB Marcus Mariota to the roster this offsason. Carr and Mariota will compete for the starting job in training camp. Both will have those great weapons around to throw to, although Carr is likely the frontrunner due to his experience with the team as the starter.
