Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr ranked second among quarterbacks in 2019 with a 64 percent accurate pass rate, according to Pro Football Focus data.
Huddle Up: However, when another PFF stat reveals that Carr ranked last among regular starting QBs in average depth of completion (5.2 yards) it's easy to see why he's ranked no higher than 16th among fantasy QBs in each of the last three seasons. Expect more of the same QB2 production in 2020 despite the Raiders' improved weaponry.

Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr has been working out with some of his teammates at a Las Vegas Park, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal's Rochelle Richards. WR Zay Jones, WR Hunter Renfrow and TE Darren Waller are among the players working out with Carr.
Huddle Up: Carr is coming off a decent 2019 season with 3,270 yards and 21 touchdowns. The team added several new receivers to the roster this offseason, so Carr will have plenty of options in the passing game. He probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr says he is focusing on winning more games and scoring more points. If you have something (negative) to say to me, I have no time for you,' he said in an interview with The Athletic. '... We just need to score more and win more. That's my mindset. I don't care about anything else.'
Huddle Up: Carr has only finished as a top-10 fantasy QB once (2016) in his six seasons with the Raiders, and despite some new offensive weapons in rookie WRs Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards and RB Lynn Bowden Jr., he's still projects as a middling QB2 at best in 2020.

Las Vegas Raiders QBs Derek Carr remains the team's starter after the team used five first-round picks on other positions the last two seasons.
Huddle Up: Yeah, the Raiders now have Marcus Mariota, but Carr remains No. 1 and he now has a new toy to deploy in speedy first-round WR pick Henry Ruggs. Still, Carr has only finished as a top-10 fantasy once (2016) in his six seasons with the Raiders, and he remains a middling QB2 prospect for 2020.

The Las Vegas Raiders may use the 12th overall selection in the NFL Draft on a wide receiver. Depending on how the draft plays out, the Raiders might have their choice between the top three receivers available: The general consensus includes Alabama WR Jerry Jeudy, Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb and Alabama WR Henry Ruggs III. General manager Mike Mayock recently made it clear the team needs to get better at receiver, as they look to provide QB Derek Carr with a new weapon. Mayock believes all three of those receivers are high-level players, but each brings different traits to the field. With a deep class of wide receivers in the draft, the Raiders might also dip back into the well in later rounds, too, even if they invest in the position early.
