Late interception costs Derek Carr


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/21/2014) The Raiders had a conservative game plan on the road against a Patriots defense that proved to be stout through the first two weeks, and rookie quarterback Derek Carr once again completed more than 60 percent (21 for 34) of his passes as a result. Of course, he also threw for just 174 yards and couldn't get the Raiders in the end zone in a 16-9 loss.

The closest he came was on the team's final drive of the game, when running back Darren McFadden had what looked like a game-tying 6-yard touchdown run with about a minute to go, but the play was reversed on a holding call. Carr threw an interception on the very next play.

After throwing two touchdown passes to no interceptions in his first game, he has thrown one touchdown pass to three interceptions in his last two. He'll look to reverse the trend Week 4 against the Dolphins.


Derek Carr picked off twice in home-opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr surpassed the 250-yard mark in a rough outing at home against the Texans in Week 2.

Carr was picked off by Kareem Jackson, who nearly took it back for a touchdown. It was Carr's first interception of the season. He was intercepted by Brooks Reed in the fourth quarter before firing a 9-yard touchdown pass to James Jones with 13 seconds remaining. He finished the game with 263 yards through the air while completing 27 of 42 attempts. He had one touchdown and two interceptions, registering a 69.8 passer rating in a 30-14 defeat.

Carr has 414 passing yards, with three touchdowns and two interceptions through his first two career games. He will travel to New England for a Week 3 showdown against the Patriots.


Derek Carr unable to connect downfield


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr completed 20 of 32 passes against the Jets in his debut, but only three completions were caught 10 yards beyond the line of scrimmage. And eight of Carr's completions were behind the line.

"We had some shot plays called down the field, and a couple of those opportunities, for whatever the reason was, we didn't get the ball down the field and ended up having to check it down," coach Dennis Allen told the Oakland Tribune. "I would say it's a combination of us and some of what they did."

Carr, who has a big arm, will try to attack downfield more Week 2 against Houston.


Derek Carr has two touchdowns in loss


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr made his NFL debut Sunday at the Jets, and he was mediocre at best in a 19-14 loss.

Carr was 20-of-32 passing for 151 yards and two touchdowns. But he should have had an interception returned for a touchdown, and he was limited after a 7-of-7 start. He connected on touchdowns to Rod Streater and James Jones.

The Raiders play host to Houston in Week 2.


Derek Carr viable option against porous Jets pass defense


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Raiders rookie and surprise starter Derek Carr could not have picked a more troubled cornerback corps to debut against Sunday.

The Jets are a mess in that area. Antonio Allen, who has moved from safety to corner, has just been cleared after sustaining a concussion. An ankle injury will almost certainly keep Dee Milliner sidelined. Dimitri Patterson went AWOL and was cut. And the Jets are so desperate they might start Browns castoff Leon McFadden, who was seemingly whistled for interference on every pass thrown his way in the preseason. The Jets ranked 22nd in the NFL in pass defense a year ago and could be worse in 2014.

That makes Carr an intriguing Fantasy start. Also encouraging is that the Raiders have added playmakers in the offseason that should give him several viable weapons. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew and wide receiver James Jones are legitimate threats, as are holdover wideouts Denarius Moore and Rod Streater.

Don't expect Carr to light it up for 300 yards and three touchdowns - such is too much to ask for in his introduction to the regular season in the NFL and he will be playing in front of a hostile crowd. But he is coming off a preseason finale in which he completed 11 of 13 passes for 143 yards and three touchdowns and he clearly outperformed expected starter Matt Schaub in exhibition play. There are certainly worse options against a Jets pass defense that appears destined for disaster early in the season.


Report: Raiders going with Derek Carr over Matt Schaub


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Raiders players have been told the team will start rookie Derek Carr over veteran Matt Schaub at quarterback, reports Fox Sports. Carr threw three touchdown passes in last Thursday's preseason finale while Schaub has battled elbow problems.

Oakland opens the season Sunday at the Jets.


Raiders will have plan in place for starting QB early next week


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2014) Raiders head coach Dennis Allen told reporters that the team will have a plan in place early in the week for their starting quarterback. When asked if he'll announce the starter then, Allen said he hasn't "given that much thought," according to the Bay Area News Group.

What Allen did note is that he won't make a decision until he sees where Matt Schaub is physically on Monday. Schaub was not at the team's practice facility on Friday due to personal issues.

Rookie Derek Carr compiled 326 yards through the air while completing 30 of 45 passes, with four touchdowns and one interception this preseason.

Events throwing Raiders quarterback situation in doubt


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2014) Dennis Allen has seemingly softened on his stance that veteran Matt Schaub is set as the starting quarterback for the Raiders.

An elbow injury to Schaub and the continued brilliant preseason performance of rookie Derek Carr might have altered the thinking of the coach. Carr completed 11 of 13 passes for 143 yards and three touchdowns in just 22 snaps in a Thursday night defeat of Seattle.

"I really like where we're at in the quarterback room," Allen said per CSNBayarea.com. "The biggest things is that we'll have to see where Matt is when he comes in on Monday."


Derek Carr fires three touchdown passes in preseason finale


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2014) Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr made a pretty strong case for himself to win the starting job during Thursday's preseason finale against the Seahawks.

Carr led the team to four touchdown drives, most of which came against Seattle's first unit. He hooked up with Denarius Moore for scores of 36 and 11 yards. He also fired a 20-yard touchdown pass to Mychal Rivera.

Carr completed 11 of 14 passes for 143 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions, finishing with a 152.1 passer rating. This preseason, the rookie signal-caller compiled 326 yards through the air while completing 30 of 45 passes. He added four touchdowns and one interception.

Coaches feel Derek Carr ready to start if needed


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr has recovered from a concussion, but he will be inactive for the Friday game in Green Bay due to bruised ribs. Dennis Allen has stated that he does not want to expose Carr to further injury.

Carr left the second preseason game with the rib injury, though Allen told the media following the game that he had sustained a concussion.


Report: Shaky Matt Schaub still guaranteed to start opener


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub has shown a lack of arm stregnth through two preseason games. He's 11 of 20 for 115 yards and no touchdowns with an interception.

But according to NFL.com, rookie Derek Carr is not a threat to start the regular-season opener. Oakland coaches believe Schaub can be a solid starter despite his limitations, the report said.


Derek Carr makes quick return from concussion


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Derek Carr diagnosed with concussion


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Dennis Allen has announced that a concussion knocked Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr out of the Friday night preseason game against Detroit.

Allen, however, praised Carr for his performance before going down. "I thought he was better in this game," Allen told NFL.com in comparing his performance to that in the exhibition opener.

Carr finished 9 of 16 for 109 yards, one touchdown and no picks.


Derek Carr exits exhibition game with apparent rib injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr was forced out of Friday's preseason game against the Lions with an apparent rib injury.

Carr entered the game in the second quarter for Matt Schaub and sustained the injury late in the fourth quarter. He was taken back to the locker room for further tests. While walking back to the locker room, Carr told team doctors he "heard a crunch," according to Sports Illustrated.

Carr threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Jake Murphy in the third quarter. He completed 9 of 16 pass attempts for 109 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions. He was replaced by Matt McGloin in the final minutes of the game.

Derek Carr picked off once in preseason debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr entered Friday's preseason opener against the Vikings in the second quarter with the second-team offense.

Carr played until the third quarter before being pulled for third-stringer Matt McGloin. He showed some struggles in the opening drive and was picked off by Kurt Coleman. He completed 10 of 16 pass attempts for 74 yards, with one interception and no touchdowns. He is expected to open the season as the backup quarterback behind Matt Schaub.

Derek Carr to remain with second-team in preseason


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr is expected to work with the second team in Friday's preseason opener against the Vikings, NFL.com reports.

Carr has been working with the second-team offense during training camp, and that seems likely to continue as he is expected to open the season as Matt Schaub's backup. 


Derek Carr moves ahead of Matt McGloin


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/2014) Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr has moved into the No. 2 role behind Matt Schaub and ahead of Matt McGloin, reports ESPN.

"We're trying to expedite his progression, and I've liked a lot of things I've seen out of Derek," coach Dennis Allen said. "He's still got a long way to go and I like the direction he's headed." 


Derek Carr could push Matt Schaub for No. 1 job


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/12/2014) Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr could push Matt Schaub for the starting job, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. Coach Dennis Allen said "everything is written in pencil."

Offensive coordinator Greg Olson said Carr has been "better than we thought he would be." Carr came in behind Schaub and second-year player Matt McGloin during practice but has already started taking away second-team snaps from McGloin.

"I really, really like him," Olson said of Carr. "Everybody knew he was accurate, but he is more accurate than we thought. ... We'll have to wait and see how he does against a live rush, but so far his intelligence, accuracy and quickness in getting the ball out has been excellent."


Derek Carr signs rookie deal


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) The Raiders signed quarterback Derek Carr, the No. 36 overall pick, to a four-year deal worth about $5.3 million, reports NFL Network. Carr threw for 5,082 yards and 50 touchdowns with eight interceptions last season for Fresno State.

He's expected to back up Matt Schaub in Oakland.


Raiders 'firmly committed' to Matt Schaub over Derek Carr


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) The Raiders are "firmly committed" to Matt Schaub as their starting quarterback this season, and it would take something "catastrophic" for second-round pick Derek Carr to start, reports ESPN's Jim Trotter. Schaub, who turns 33 in June, threw 10 touchdowns and 14 interceptions with the Texans last season.

Fantasy owners must practice patience with Derek Carr


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) Derek Carr's landing in Oakland is a positive. He's a strong-armed, sharp quarterback who should find playing time before the season ends. He's also a local California kid, which shouldn't hurt things for the franchise. This is a squad that has lacked a quality quarterback for a long time. Carr fits the bill. Once he gets in there he'll end up throwing a bunch -- he's a Raider and that's what they do, whether by choice or because they're playing from behind.

Carr's a Fantasy pick for the future, not for the present. We like him with a middle- to late-round pick in dynasty/keeper leagues and a Top 10 pick in rookie-only drafts. We wouldn't take him in a seasonal format.

Raiders draft Derek Carr in second round


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) With the No. 36 pick in the NFL Draft, the Raiders selected quarterback Derek Carr from Fresno State. Carr is expected to be No. 2 on the depth chart behind Matt Schaub.

Carr, the younger brother of former No. 1 overall pick David Carr, is 6-foot-3, 214-pounds. He has a strong arm and put up 5,083 passing yards and 50 touchdowns while completing 68.9 percent of his passes as a senior.

Over four years with the Bulldogs he played in 43 games and threw for 12,626 yards and 111 touchdowns with just 23 interceptions. He will likely sit as a rookie behind Schaub barring injury or poor play by the veteran, but Carr could be the starter in 2015.
