Derek Carr: Jon Gruden talks to Saints about coaching Carr

Jon Gruden met with the Saints coaching staff to discuss coaching QB Derek Carr.

Fantasy Impact

Gruden met with the Saints at their facilities last week. “In Jon, we have a resource here that is football through and through,” Allen told Albert Breer over the phone Saturday. “And he’s had an opportunity to work with Derek Carr. “So what better [way to use that] resource than to just get some thoughts and ideas on how he worked with Derek and what he thought worked well with Derek?” The Saints signed Carr to a four-year deal back in March.

Derek Carr: Saints bring in Gruden to help install offense

The New Orleans Saints brought in QB Derek Carr's former head coach Jon Gruden to help Carr and the offensive coaching staff in installing Dennis Allen's offense for 2023.

Fantasy Impact

The offensive system in New Orleans, similar to that in Las Vegas, is a branch of the West Coast offense. By bringing in Gruden, Allen was able to help introduce his offensive system. Carr said that the offense in New Orleans is new, but that it has similarities to things he grew up on. Carr currently has an ECR of QB18 according to FantasyPros, making him a solid QB2 option as usual, only once finishing in the top 12 at QB.

Derek Carr closing in on deal with Saints

The New Orleans Saints are close to a deal with free agent QB Derek Carr.

Fantasy Impact

Carr was released by the Raiders in February after nine years with the team, and he becomes the first of the QBs to land in a new location. From a fantasy perspective, his stats in 2022 were somewhat concerning, with the highest interception rate and the lowest completion percentage of his career. He did throw for 3,522 and 24 touchdowns in 15 games with the Raiders in 2022.

Derek Carr meeting with Jets, Saints, Panthers

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, QB Derek Carr will be at the NFL Combine meeting with the Jets, Saints and Panthers and potentially more teams on his free agency tour.

Fantasy Impact

Carr has already met with the Jets and Saints and is now adding the Panthers into the mix. Entire front offices will be present in Indianapolis granting Carr time to talk to everyone he needs to in order to decide where to sign. Carr threw for 3,522 and 24 touchdowns in 15 games with the Raiders in 2022.

Derek Carr to meet with Jets

Free agent QB Derek Carr will meet with the New York Jets over the weekend.

Fantasy Impact

Carr had previously met with the Saints before being released by the Raiders. The Jets have a great young receiving corps and RB Breece Hall to pair with the 31-year-old QB. Their offensive line was in the bottom 10 in the league according to PFF, though, which would limit Carr's fantasy appeal. He threw for 3,522 yards, 24 TD, and 14 interceptions in 2022.
