Joe Theismann loves the Gruden-Carr pairing

Raiders Snake Pit - [Full Article]

Former Super Bowl-winning quarterback Joe Theismann said that he loves the pairing of quarterback Derek Carr with new head coach Jon Gruden. He went on to say that some of Carr's 2017 struggles may not have been his own doing, and that Gruden would have only come back to coaching a team with a solid quarterback in place.

Fantasy Impact:

Typically we wouldn't consider commentary from former players news, but Theismann is considered a bit of a quarterback expert around the league, making this particular item noteworthy. Carr reportedly struggled to stay healthy in 2017, and regressed mightily in terms of his play. He is currently the No. 19 quarterback off the board in fantasy drafts.

Scouting Report

Week 3 at Miami Dolphins

The Raiders have the dreaded cross-country, early eastern time zone kickoff Sunday in Miami. Las Vegas has taken note, too, as the Raiders have a low 20.5-point implied team total. Derek Carr has failed to reach 16 fantasy points in back-to-back games, despite completing 29-of-32 passes last week. How is that possible? Miami is also third on the early season in points allowed to fantasy quarterbacks. Carr is not worthy of starting consideration in 1QB leagues in Week 3.
