Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr on Thursday, Feb. 27, drew praise from head coach Jon Gruden. 'Consistent on what I have said. I really think Derek is a heck of a player,' Gruden said. 'And I have a lot of respect for what he has done and with some tough circumstances. So I'm not going answer every media rumor out there -- just can't do it. I'm just going to listen to my Sirius rock 'n roll classic vinyl and keep working. But I love what Derek Carr did, love what he brings to our team and anxious to continue to build around him.'
Huddle Up: Carr hit career season highs for passing yards (4,054) and completion percentage (70.4) in 2019, but only threw for 21 TDs. We'll have to see where he winds up for 2020, but if its back with the Raiders, consider him a QB2 for fantasy.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) recently told head coach Jon Gruden that he was close to 100 percent recovered from the plantar fasciitis he dealt with last season, Gruden said Thursday, Feb. 27.
Huddle Up: Williams started 2019 on fire with a touchdown catch and at least 11.9 PPR points in each of his first five games played but only reached those standards once in his final nine contests as his foot issues really began to take their toll. Don't be surprised if the Raiders add another wideout this offseason and Williams becomes more of a WR3/4 fantasy option.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs will have a larger role in the passing game in 2020, in the opinion of Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Jacobs lived up to the hype as a rookie, rushing for 1,150 yards and seven touchdowns in 13 games. Even if his role in the passing game remains stagnant, he will still be a low-end RB1 candidate in 2020.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) is making good progress in his recovery from the plantar fasciitis he dealt with in both of his feet, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Williams had a great start to the 2019 season but had some problems during the final month of the season. He should be one of the starting receivers for the Raiders next season and could be a No. 3 receiver in some fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr recently posted an photo on Instagram of himself talking with Chicago Bears DL Khalil Mack following a game last season, and the post is part of speculation that Carr could be traded to the Bears this offseason and reunited with Mack.
Huddle Up: The Bears have said they expect Mitchell Trubisky to be their 2020 starter, but they also said he could have competition in the QB room, and Carr would certainly provide as much. Stay tuned ...

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr had a 112.6 quarterback rating when targeting WR Tyrell Williams in 2019, the highest rating to any receiver in his career.
Huddle Up: Williams slowed dramatically after a hot start to the year, but he was still the most dangerous deep threat for the passing attack. His big-play ability gives him WR3 potential in standard leagues, but Williams' style is a better fit for best-ball formats.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs was the highest-graded rookie running back in the league during the 2019 season according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Jacobs missed three games with a shoulder fracture but played through the pain in a number of other contests and finished 12th among all backs with 13.4 fantasy points per game. His shoulder should be fully healed next season, and that puts him at the back end of the RB1 conversation for 2020.

Oakland Raiders TE Darren Waller's $7.28 million base salary for 2020 became fully guaranteed Wednesday, Feb. 5.
Huddle Up: Waller was a breakout fantasy player this season and should be a main option in the passing game again next season. He can be considered a No. 1 tight end in all leagues in 2020.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams' $11 million base salary for 2020 became full guaranteed Wednesday, Feb. 5.
Huddle Up: Williams posted 651 yards and six touchdowns in 14 regular season games and likely will be one of the starting receivers again next season. He has a chance to be a No. 3 in fantasy leagues.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr had $2.9 million of his $18.9 million base salary for 2020 guaranteed Wednesday, Feb. 5.
Huddle Up: Carr's status with the Raiders is still uncertain, so fantasy players will need to keep an eye on his status during the offseason. He posted decent numbers this past season but should only be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy league in 2020.

Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard agreed to terms on a contract extension with the Raiders Wednesday, Feb. 5, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Richard has been used mostly as a receiver out of the backfield over the last few seasons and should have a similar role in 2020. He can be rostered in point-per-reception leagues but is not a weekly starting option.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs led all running backs with 69 broken tackles in the 2019 season, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Jacobs accomplished the feat despite playing just 13 games, and the rookie wasted no time establishing himself as a true workhorse back. After averaging more than 100 yards from scrimmage per game in his debut campaign, he should enter 2020 as a RB1 candidate.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is tiring of the quarterback rumors surrounding the team -- the latest resulting from a photo taken of New England Patriots QB Tom Brady, a pending free agent, and Raiders owner Mark Davis talking at Jan. 18 UFC fight in Las Vegas. 'C'mon man, when's it going to end?' Carr asked.
Huddle Up: Carr, who set career highs in passing yards (4,054) and completion percentage (70.4) in 2019, is entering the third year of a five-year, $125 million contract but his release would save the Raiders $16.5 million against the 2020 salary cap. It's likely he sticks with the Raiders for another season -- the franchise's first in Las Vegas -- but he remains an up-and-down QB2 for fantasy purposes.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is scheduled to count $21.5 million against the 2020 salary cap, and releasing him would save the Raiders $16.5 million after a $5 million charge for dead money. Previous reports have placed the odds of Carr's return at 70 percent.
Huddle Up: The move to Las Vegas could mean keeping Carr for one more chance to prove he can be a franchise quarterback. Starting fresh for a new starter in Jon Gruden's offense in the first season in Sin City isn't the ideal way to put the best foot forward. Carr is an erratic No. 2 quarterback in 2020 fantasy drafts based on potential alone.

Oakland Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow had 23 receptions for 344 yards and three touchdowns on third downs during his rookie season, and 70 percent of those catches resulted in first downs. Head coach John Gruden called Renfrow a 'special' player after he closed the year with 13 catches and 209 yards over the final two weeks.
Huddle Up: There are a lot of question marks for the Raiders entering 2020, but Renfrow appears entrenched in the slot and could muster some real fantasy appeal, particularly in PPR leagues.

Oakland Raiders TE Darren Waller (thumb) underwent thumb surgery Monday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: Waller finished the season with 90 receptions, 1,145 yards and three touchdowns. He may miss some offseason workouts because of the surgery but should be ready for training camp. He will be a solid No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues next season.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) was downgraded to out Saturday, Dec. 28, for the game Sunday, Dec. 29, against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: It's a big, but expected, blow for the Raiders who must win Sunday in order to have any chance at a postseason berth. RB DeAndre Washington is a must-start RB2.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 27, but is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Williams had a bounce back performance last week after a few disappointing games and recorded 105 yards and one touchdown against the Denver Broncos earlier this season. He can be a No. 3 receiver for fantasy players this week.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (illness, shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is listed as doubtful for Week 17.
Huddle Up: DeAndre Washington likely will receive most of the carries in the running game and has played well over the last few weeks. He can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) is not expected to play in Week 17, according to information obtained from a source Friday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Jacobs has enjoyed a standout rookie season, but a nagging shoulder injury dampened the finish, costing him three of the season's final four games if he winds up sitting out Sunday as expected.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr's performance this season was praised by head coach Jon Gruden. 'He's done a lot of good things,' Gruden said 'I know there's a lot of swirling reports out there, but Derek's done a great job. He's done a heck of a job for us.'
Huddle Up: Carr has been efficient all year, completing 71.1 percent of his passes. On the flip side, he has yet to record a 300-yard game and has just 20 touchdowns. If he remains with Oakland beyond this season, Carr will likely remain a QB2 for fantasy purposes.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) didn't participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 26. He wasn't on the injury report for Wednesday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: Fantasy managers will want to see at least a limited practice session from Williams Friday, Dec. 27, but there shouldn't be too much concern at this point. He's a WR2 in the must-win game for the Raiders.

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder, infection) clarified Thursday, Dec. 26, that he had surgery on Christmas to deal with a leg infection. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that the surgery should not in itself prevent Jacobs from possibly playing in Week 17, but the running back still remains a question mark due to his lingering shoulder injury.
Huddle Up: We'll see if we get more clarity over the next few days of practice, but Jacobs still seems unlikely after missing two of the last three games due to his shoulder.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) participated in the team's walk-through Tuesday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Offensive coordinator Greg Olsen called Jacobs' work on Tuesday "encouraging." The rookie has already surpassed 1,000 yards rushing, so it's unlikely he'll be returning for the regular-season finale just to pursue a milestone. Oakland still has a slim chance of making the playoffs, so it seems reasonable to believe Jacobs will play if he can tolerate the pain. If not, DeAndre Washington makes for a solid RB2 play in Week 17 versus the Denver Broncos.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) has a chance to play in the Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor Jacob's practice participation during the week to see if he will be able to play. He would be a risky option if he is active but should still be a starting option in leagues.

Oakland Raiders TE Darren Waller caught all four of his targets for 37 yards in a 24-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: It was the second-lowest receiving total of the season for Waller, and it came at a horrible time for fantasy owners playing for titles. Still, it is tough to complain too much about a season that saw Waller top 1,000 yards.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams caught all four of his targets for 82 yards in a 24-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: It was a solid outing in what has been a mostly quiet second half of the year for Williams. He has scored just once in the last eight games, and he has been held below 50 yards six times in that stretch. He's a big-play dependent, all-or-nothing flex option.
