Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr was called the team's 'franchise quarterback' by new general manager Mike Mayock on Wednesday, Feb. 27. Mayock went on to say he is also happy with backup QB AJ McCarron. 'I think Derek Carr is a franchise quarterback,' Mayock said. 'I truly believe that. Now, do I also believe that it's a general manager and head coach's job to keep their job open to improve any position on a football team? Sure. But I think it's really difficult to try to improve over a franchise quarterback like the one we have in our building right now.'
Huddle Up: Carr has flashed at times and has shown the ability to be a low-end QB1 when all is going well. However, the perennially rebuilding Raiders need to restock the WR cupboard and shore up the offensive line before fantasy faithful can even whisper Carr's name in the No. 1 quarterback conversation. Barring an unexpected move to bolster his receiving corps, Carr remains a fringe QB2 with more downside than positives.
