Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr finished 25-of-29 for 292 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Week 11 versus the Cincinnati Bengals. He ran five times for one yard and scored another touchdown on the ground.
Huddle Up: Carr got off to a red-hot start, completing his first 14 throws. He hit rookie Foster Moreau on a wide-open 2-yard TE pass midway through the second quarter and added a short scoring run right before halftime. The 28-year-old quarterback has been a solid floor play for the better part of the season - he's accounted for at least two TDs in four of his last five games - but his limited ceiling is keeping him from being considered a low-end QB1.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr connected on 21 of his 31 passing attempts for 218 yards and a score in a Week 10 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Carr didn't do anything exceptional Thursday night, but he avoided the critical mistakes that doomed his counterpart, Philip Rivers. Carr has quietly played some pretty good ball in four games since the team's bye, and he's a decent QB2 that can be called upon in advantageous matchups, like next Sunday against the winless Bengals.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr leads NFL quarterbacks with 74.2% of his dropbacks being from a clean pocket this season.
Huddle Up: The protection has allowed Carr to complete a career-best 71.2% of his passes for 1,984 yards and 13 touchdowns against four interceptions. This has been an excellent bounce-back season for Carr in his second year operating head coach Jon Gruden's West Coast Offense. He's still matchup-dependent for fantasy purposes, but he can serve as a low-end QB1 if needed.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr finished 18-of-30 for 285 yards and three touchdowns in Week 8 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: It marks the fourth time in five games that Carr has thrown for at least two scores, while his yardage total was eight shy of the season-high mark he set last week. Fantasy owners may want to consider employing his services again next week against a Detroit Lions defense that has surrendered four touchdown passes in each of the last two weeks. As such, consider Carr a high-end QB2 in Week 9.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 22-of-28 passes for 293 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Week 7 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Carr was rested late in the game in favor of Mike Glennon, much to the dismay of fantasy owners looking for that 300-yard bonus. It wasn't a bad fantasy line despite the lopsided nature of the score. He'll look for better results in Week 8 at Houston.

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 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.

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.
