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.

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 $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 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 QB Derek Carr completed 29 of his 46 passes for 391 yards and a touchdown in a 16-15 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 17.

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 QB Derek Carr completed 26 of his 30 pass attempts for 291 yards and a touchdown and added a three-yard rushing score in a 24-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Carr continues to complete passes at an impressive rate, but he has thrown more than one touchdown just once in his last seven games. He's only a starting option in two-quarterback leagues.
