Derek Carr struggles in loss to Chicago

Derek Carr completed 22 of his 35 passes on Sunday, totalling 206 yards while also throwing an interception. He also tacked on 10 yards in the ground.

Fantasy Impact

Carr just wasn't able to get much going on Sunday, as he constantly got pressured and struggled to build any consistency on his drives. The only scoring drive the Raiders actually put together took over eight minutes and 16 plays. It's worth noting that Carr did momentarily exit Sunday's game, although he got back into the game moments later and it doesn't seem like it should be an issue moving forward. The road doesn't get much easier either, as he and the Raiders will take on a Denver defense that has been very solid up until this past Sunday.

Derek Carr falls flat in MNF loss

Derek Carr completed 21 of his 34 passes on Monday night, totalling just 196 passing yards en route to two touchdowns and one interception. He'd also chip in six yards on the ground.

Fantasy Impact

It was a first half to forget for Carr, as he and the Raiders never had a drive last longer than six plays. Thankfully Carr bounced back in the second half with a couple touchdown tosses, which fantasy managers should see as a positive out of anything. Carr had been putting up QB1 numbers to start the year but failed to deliver against a Chargers defense that is on a roll now with two huge wins in the last two weeks. Carr will draw a matchup against Chicago next week, which could once again pose problems for the Raiders offensive line and in turn for Carr. He'll be a mid-ranged QB2 for any teams in need of a QB in Week 5, although managers should likely look elsewhere.

Derek Carr throws for 386 yards en route to OT win

Derek Carr completed 26 of his 43 throws on Sunday, totalling 386 yards and two touchdowns. He also threw one interception and ran for -2 yards on the ground.

Fantasy Impact

Carr has now thrown for at least 380 passing yards and two touchdowns in all three games this season as he and the Raiders are now 3-0 on the season. Carr got off to a rough start, throwing a pick-six in the first quarter. He would get settled in soon after though, throwing two touchdowns and leading the Raiders to 25 unanswered points. This offense looks to be clicking on all cylinders and even though they have a tough matchup against the Chargers next week, Carr can be started as a high-end QB2, low-end QB1, although if he continues to impress against Los Angeles, Carr may be a locked in QB1 the rest of the way for fantasy managers.

Derek Carr (ankle) practices in full, 'ready to go' for Week 3

Raiders coach Jon Gruden says QB Derek Carr (ankle) practiced in full on Wednesday and is "ready to go" for Week 3 against the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Carr played through the minor ankle issue during Sunday's Week 2 win over the Steelers. Gruden had referred to him as questionable earlier this week, but fantasy players can expect Las Vegas to have their starting QB against Miami.

Derek Carr (ankle) questionable for Week 3

Raiders HC Jon Gruden told reporters that QB Derek Carr, who injured his ankle Sunday, had an MRI Monday and thinks he’ll be able to play this week. Gruden called him questionable.

Fantasy Impact

This is great news for the former Pro Bowl QB. Even with the injury, Carr had another great performance against a very good defense. He will now play a Dolphins defense next week that just gave up 35 points to the Bills in Week 2.
