I expect this team to run the ball a lot and believe their passing offense took a hit by replacing Michael Crabtree with Jordy Nelson.Bortles can have good fantasy days, but he won't be asked to do that much with the defense and running game being the strengths of this offense. His running ability and the fact that he's quarterbacking a winning team means he should be more consistent than his worst games seem to foretell.

This time last year, Carr was the fourth quarterback off the board. He struggled through injuries last season and finished as the QB21. In 2016, however, he was a top 10 QB so you'd have to think it will end up somewhere in between, making him merely a streamer for the time being.You may want to give up on Bortles, but he has now been a QB1 three consecutive seasons and managed to be the #2 QB over the final five weeks of the season. It is never pretty, but he gets the job done from a production perspective.

Carr is talented and Raiders loaded up for him to get even better. I'm just not sure his fantasy production will ever align with his hype, thoughBortles was better than expected in the second half of last year but how long will the optimism last?
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After trending upward his first couple seasons, Carr hit a bump in the road in 2017 when he finished as the QB19. He did gain both Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant this offseason, but he also lost his trusted red zone target in Michael Crabtree. New head coach John Gruden has talked about running the ball a lot more, which would obviously have a negative impact on Carr's overall potential. Did you know that in 9-of-15 games in 2017, Carr finished with fewer than 14.0 fantasy points? That's not great. He's a streamer and one who I can't see a whole lot of upside with. While many spend a fortune to acquire Deshaun Watson, many are overlooking the fact that Bortles had "almost" as good of a stretch that Watson did. From Week 13-16 (four games), Bortles threw for 321.3 yards and 2.3 touchdowns per game. During Watson's five-game stretch, he averaged 294.4 yards and 3.6 touchdowns per game. The reason people think Watson could be the real-deal is because that's really one of the only sample size we have on him, whereas most "know what they are getting" with Bortles. Is that fair, though, considering he was a top-10 quarterback twice? Bottom line is that Bortles has been really streaky and has shown more bad than good, but the hate on him has gone a bit too far this offseason. With him rushing for at least 310 yards in every season, it's possible that we see him finish inside the top-15 this year, though you don't want to pay for those up-and-downs in his performances.

FantasyPros
Carr was a bust last season and until we have a better idea of what kind of offensive gameplan Jon Gruden intends to trot out, Carr is better suited as a back-up.Perennially underrated due to his rushing prowess, I think the Jags are likely to explore QB as early as the first round.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
There is no reason Carr should have struggled the way he did in 2017 and I think new head coach Jon Gruden and new OC Greg Olson should help Carr have a rebound season in 2018.
