QB - LV
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the Las Vegas Raiders are really doing their homework on the top quarterbacks in this draft, and could potentially be a dark horse trade up candidate to take one of the top QBs.
These rumors muddy the water for Derek Carr's future in Las Vegas. The Raiders could be a very interesting landing spot for a player like Trey Lance or Mac Jones, and we shouldn't rule out a crazy trade up by Gruden and company. Keep an eye on Las Vegas in the days leading up to the NFL Draft.
Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr is expected to return with the franchise for the 2021 season.
Carr will not be departing Las Vegas, as the Raiders "have him in their plans" for the 2021 season, as reported by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. However, reserve quarterback Marcus Mariota could be on the move, leaving the Raiders in a precarious position with limited depth behind Derek Carr. Carr had a 3:1 TD/INT ratio in 2020 but did injure his groin late in the season, which the Raiders hope won't resurface as an issue later in 2021.
Jim Ayello of the Indy Star reports the Colts were one of several teams to inquire about Derek Carr but were told he is "not available."
These reports confirm that Carr will likely be returning as the starting quarterback for the Raiders in the 2021 season, providing stability for his fantasy outlook.
Per sources, Raiders QB Derek Carr is expected to draw interest from multiple teams around the league after throwing for a career-high 4,103 yards with 27 touchdowns and just nine interceptions.
With Marcus Mariota under contract through the 2021 season, the Raiders could decide to move on from Carr, who is expected by NFL insiders to be a hot commodity this offseason after being PFF’s 9th highest-graded quarterback (84.7) in 2020. There’s also the possibility the Raiders could pursue Deshaun Watson, who is now reportedly prepared to hold out in 2021 if not traded by the Texans before the season. While there’s just a small chance that happens, it’s not out of the realm of possibility. Odds are the Raiders build around Carr, but they now have more options than before after his stellar 2020 season.
Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 24-of-48 passes for 371 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Raiders' 32-31 win over the Broncos in Week 17.
Carr led the Raiders to an 8-8 record and enjoyed a career-high 4,103 passing yards with 30 TDs (27 passing, three rushing), seven interceptions, and three fumbles across 16 games this season. He has two years left on his contract, so his status as the starting quarterback remains intact for now. He'll be a middle-of-the-pack QB in 2021 and is only worthy of scooping up if you're streaming a QB.
