Description: Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr was a solid game manager in the game against Buffalo.
Insight: Carr did not throw an interception and threw for 214 yards and a pair of short touchdowns. He's not fantasy worthy at this time, but we see possibilities down the road.
 
12/14/2014 7:07:00 PM
Description: Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr was not good against the Chiefs in Week 15.
Insight: Carr did not throw an interception, but he did lose a fumble and average just 4.0 yards per attempt. Carr attempted 56 passes, so he did manage to gain 222 yards through the air. He also had a touchdown.
 
12/8/2014 10:28:00 AM
Description: Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr was solid in a win over the 49ers, throwing 22-of-28 for 254 yards and three touchdowns.
Insight: Even more important - no turnovers. The question is whether he was good enough to attract likely-soon-to-be-available 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh to Oakland for 2015.
 
Cold11/30/2014 7:12:00 PM
Description: Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr did not build upon his success in Week 12 against the Chiefs.
Insight: Carr went 24-for-39 with 173 yards and two interceptions. The Rams also sacked him three times. Carr is not a fantasy option even in two-quarterback leagues.
 
Cold11/20/2014 7:19:00 PM
Description: Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr will start Thursday against the Chiefs.
Insight: Hopefully, fantasy owners aren't relying on Carr as he has struggled in his rookie season. But if there are owners who are, at least he is playing.
 
Cold11/17/2014 10:20:00 AM
Description: Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr seemed overmatched against the Chargers defense.
Insight: Carr was 16-of-34 for 172 yards and couldn't mount a single touchdown drive. If you are going to use a rookie quarterback, you have to expect games like this. In truth, no Oakland Raiders players should be started in any fantasy league.
 
Cold11/10/2014 9:58:00 AM
Description: Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr threw the ball 47 times, yet accumulated just 192 yards on 30 completions.
Insight: Carr couldn't hold a candle to the "other" quarterback on the field. Starting rookie quarterbacks is rarely a pretty sight.
 
11/3/2014 9:37:00 AM
Description: Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr got off to an ugly start with a pair of early interceptions, but rebounded to throw a pair of touchdown passes against the defending Super Bowl champions.
Insight: Carr only threw for 194 yards, but this is what rookies do. They are inconsistent from week to week and quarter to quarter.
 
10/27/2014 10:33:00 AM
Description: For most of the game Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr's offense could only produce a couple of field goals.
Insight: But Carr kept throwing and a late touchdown pass and 54 attempts, many in garbage time, helped him produce decent fantasy totals - 328 yards and a touchdowns against two interceptions.
 
10/13/2014 11:10:00 AM
Description: Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr was very good against San Diego Sunday, doing everything except bring home a win.
Insight: Carr, who suffered a MCL sprain and high-ankle sprain three weeks ago, threw for 282 yards and four scores. The kid has talent and will only get better.
 
10/12/2014 3:05:00 PM
Description: Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr is active for Week 6 against San Diego.
Insight: Carr suffered a MCL sprain and high-ankle sprain three weeks ago. Just because he's back on the field doesn't mean you should be playing him. The Chargers are 4-1 with a defense yielding a league-low 12.6 ppg.
 
10/8/2014 8:12:00 PM
Description: Raiders quarterback Derek Carr practiced on Wednesday.
Insight: Carr suffered a MCL sprain and high-ankle sprain two weeks ago. He is supposedly on pace to start in Week 6. He still is only useful in two-quarterback leagues.
 
9/28/2014 5:46:00 PM
Description: Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is unable to finish game.
Insight: He left the game with a sprained MCL and a high-anke sprain, and could very well miss some time. Carr finished the day with 146 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Matt McGloin took over and went 12-of-29 for 129 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions.
 
Cold9/21/2014 11:18:00 PM
Description: Raiders quarterback Derek Carr looked like a rookie out there.
Insight: Oh that's right, he is. Carr went 21-of-34 for 174 yards and an interception.He couldn't get the ball into the end zone and settled for three Sebastian Janikowski field goals.
 
9/16/2014 12:40:00 PM
Description: Raiders quarterback Derek Carr produced better fantasy numbers in Week 2 leading Oakland to twice as many points as in Week 1, but not a victory.
Insight: Carr threw for 263 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 58 yards, but was picked off twice. We think he has a future as an NFL quarterback and a fantasy quarterback, though it may not manifest itself for owners this season.
 
Hot9/1/2014 6:20:00 PM
Description: According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, Raiders players have been informed that the team will start Derek Carr at quarterback in Week 1.
Insight: Schaub was horrible in the preseason and is dealing with elbow soreness. Carr, a rookie second-rounder, is simply a better option than Schaub at this point and should improve the fantasy value of Oakland's skill position players.
 
Hot8/29/2014 9:22:00 AM
Description: Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr will start Week 1, according to ESPN Raiders reporter Bill Williamson.
Insight: Carr looked good again Thursday night and has forced Coach Dennins Allen into a tough decision. Neither is a fantasy worthy starter, but Carr has more upside. Carr hit Denarius Moore twice for a touchdown against Seattle.
 
8/16/2014 3:41:00 PM
Description: Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr suffered a concussion during Friday's preseason game, according to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: Carr has completed 19-of-32 for 183 yards, a touchdown and an interception in two preseason games while Matt Schaub has gone 11-of-20 for 108 yards and a pick, but Schaub is still expected to begin the season as Oakland's starter.

Description: Second-round draft pick Derek Carr will have a chance to compete for the Raiders' starting quarterback job this season. SOURCE: Albert Breer, NFL.com
Insight: Matt Schaub, acquired from Houston in a trade this offseason, is the current No. 1 on Oakland's QB depth chart. However, Carr was excellent in his final year at Fresno State (50 TD, 8 INT, 5,082 passing yards) and should challenge Schaub every step of the way. This situation may not be resolved until deep into training camp.
 
5/9/2014 7:28:00 PM
Description: With the 36th-overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Oakland Raiders selected QB Derek Carr out of Fresno State.
Insight: His brother David went No. 1 overall to the Houston Texans in 2002. Carr, who is athletic and has a big arm, will likely open the season as a backup to Matt Schaub.
