Derek Carr and Raiders reach extension

Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders have agreed upon a new three-year contract extension worth $121.5 million. The deal will keep Carr in Vegas through 2025.

Fantasy Impact

The Raiders lock up their guy for the foreseeable future with the new deal. Carr and the Raiders are entering an important time in his career with Vegas putting the best group of playmakers he has had in his career around him. With Adams, Waller, and Renfrow at his disposal, I have Carr slated as a high QB2 to start the year with serious potential to leap to the next tier.

Derek Carr: 'No absolutes' on QB's status, per beat writer

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr's status heading into 2022 is no guarantee. Vic Tafur of The Athletic notes that there are "no absolutes" at this point and a trade remains possible.

Fantasy Impact

Last month, Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels said that Carr would "absolutely" be the team's Week 1 starter. However, general manager Dave Ziegler was less confident, and this new report from Tafur echoes Ziegler's uncertainty. At this point, the most likely outcome is that Carr stays with Las Vegas, but there's definitely a nonzero chance that he's moved. Regardless of where Carr ends up, he should be viewed as a high-end QB2 in redraft formats. He has continuously proven that he can be a reliable fantasy option, offering a steady floor week in and week out.

Derek Carr drawing interest from multiple teams

The Raiders are fielding inquiries from multiple teams about Derek Carr, according to Vincent Bonsignore.

Fantasy Impact

Carr's base salary is $19.77 million and he is in the final year of his contract. He will be an unrestricted free agent in 2023 without an extension. Last month, it was reported that the Raiders would be moving forward with the 30-year-old and hoping to extend him. Apparently, though, the lack of resolution has encouraged other teams to pursue.

Derek Carr receives support from head coach Josh McDaniels

New Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels told reporters that the team can win with Derek Carr under center.

Fantasy Impact

McDaniels added that Carr did a nice job leading the team this year with all that they had going on. McDaniels also said he respects the veteran quarterback. Throughout the hiring process, it was reported that McDaniels was excited for the potential to work with Carr. It will be interesting to see what McDaniels is able to do with Carr and the rest of the Raiders' offense in 2022. This would seem to put rumors of Carr moving on from Las Vegas to rest, but as we've seen anything can happen.
