Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 25-of-32 passes for 229 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 5 against the Chicago Bears in London.
Huddle Up: Carr simply had to hand it off to Josh Jacobs and he did the rest, as the rookie had two of the team's three rushing touchdowns. The Raiders have two weeks off with the bye, but Carr is best used as a QB2 in most fantasy leagues on a normal week.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (undisclosed) is not listed among the injured players on the practice report Wednesday, Oct. 2. He had precautionary X-rays for an undisclosed ailment after the Week 4 game.
Huddle Up: You can start Carr safely in Week 5 for the game against the Chicago Bears if you normally rely upon him in fantasy football, although he could be without WR Tyrell Williams (foot), who did not practice Wednesday.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (undisclosed) underwent precautionary X-rays after suffering an undisclosed injury during the Week 4 game.
Huddle Up: Carr has thrown six touchdowns in four games but has thrown for at least 250 yards in only one of the four games this season. He likely will be ready for the Week 5 game but probably will not be a starting option in most leagues.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 27-of-34 passes for 242 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Carr had his first multi-TD game of the season, and he hit triple digits in QB Rating (103.7) for the second time in three starts. Still, he remains more of a No. 2 fantasy option heading into Week 4 on the road against the Indianapolis Colts.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr led all quarterbacks with a 15.4-percent rate of big-time throws in Week 1, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Carr didn't have a huge fantasy day, throwing for 259 yards and one TD, but complete 84.6 percent of his passes while averaging 9.96 yards per attempt. He's a low-end QB1 option in Week 2 in what could turn into a shootout with the high-powered Chiefs.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 22-of-26 passes for 259 yards, one touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos on Monday, Sept. 9.
Huddle Up: Antonio who? Carr jelled nicely with newcomer Tyrell Williams and Darren Waller, while Josh Jacobs gave the Raiders a strong run game. Carr's numbers were still just OK from a fantasy perspective, and he remains in the QB2 neighborhood. The Raiders host the Chiefs in Week 2.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr said Thursday, Aug. 15, he is feeling more comfortable talking with head coach Jon Gruden this year than last. 'Year 2, we're having different level of conversations,' Carr said. 'I have two offseasons under my belt, almost two training camps under my belt, I have a full year of experience under my belt, of knowing what checks he wants, what he wants me to get to, what his thought process is on third-and-short, on second-and-short, I know what routes he wants me checking to versus different looks. I'm doing my best just to execute this difficult offense. There's just so much on the quarterback's plate that it's different from some of the other systems that I've been in.'
Huddle Up: Carr is a fringe QB2 after completing 68.9 percent of his passes for 4,049 yards, 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions last season. Don't be surprised if he ends up a hot commodity on the waiver wire, but there are many better options available on draft day.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is getting some push from head coach Jon Gruden to scramble more often in 2019. 'Derek is a lot more athletic than people think. Hopefully, we can get some more scramble, second-reaction offense,' Gruden said.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is signed through 2022, but he has no more guaranteed money on his contract beyond this season, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano. While Carr would be guaranteed $2.9 million of his $18.9 million salary for the 2020 season if he's still on the roster a week after Super Bowl LIV, he would be owed nothing if he were released before then.
Huddle Up: With Jon Gruden under contract for eight more seasons beyond this one and the team preparing for a move to Las Vegas, it's hard not to agree with Graziano on 2019 being a "make or break" year for Carr, who hasn't played particularly well since his injury late in 2016. With more weapons than ever and plenty of incentive to perform, Carr could be an interesting QB2.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr would welcome the addition of Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown, in the event Oakland trades for Brown. 'I hope he's in play. It would be great to add a guy like that to your team, talent like that,' Carr told the Fresno Bee on Saturday, March 2.
Huddle Up: Duh? It's not really news, per se, but Carr is at least saying the right things ahead of a potential trade for the enigmatic wideout. Brown, arguably the best receiver in the league, is poised to slightly slow down given his age-31 season and having to adjust to a new quarterback. Should Carr be that quarterback, gamers are looking at Brown being no better than a midrange WR1 based on sheer volume alone.
