Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr is poised to have the best season of his career as he'll be playing with the best supporting cast of his career, including RB Josh Jacobs, TE Darren Waller and rookie WR Henry Ruggs III, in the opinion of NFl.com analyst Adam Rank.
Huddle Up: Carr has ranked as a QB1 is only one (2016) of his first six seasons and while we expect to see his numbers improve after a poor 2019, he still figures to be a mid-level QB2 at best in 2020.

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.

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.

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.'
