Draft note
by John Paulsen
The arrival of a bona fide elite WR1 (Antonio Brown) is great for Carr, but is it enough to turn him into a QB1? His career was certainly trending that way after a No. 14 finish in his second season (2015) and a No. 13 finish in (2016). Since then, he has posted back-to-back disappointing finishes (No. 22 and No. 18) in the last two seasons, and there were serious questions about whether Jon Gruden was committed to Carr as his franchise quarterback. It appears now that Gruden will move forward with Carr. Brown’s presence in Pittsburgh served to raise Ben Roethlisberger’s FP/Att by 10.2%, so if Brown sees a similar target share and posts similar per-target production in Oakland, then Carr’s per-attempt production should rise by about the same amount. Assuming the same volume as last year, that sort of rise would have made Carr the No. 15 QB instead of the No. 18 QB in 2018, so a QB1-type season is within reach if Carr exceeds expectations and/or Gruden cranks up his volume. The Raiders also added Tyrell Williams and cut Jordy Nelson.

OAK QB Derek Carr - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Derek Carr had a highly efficient Week 1 against the Broncos. He completed 22 out of 26 passing attempts for 259 yards and one touchdown. He had the luxury of playing with the lead in the fourth quarter and was able to lean on rookie running back, Josh Jacobs. Unfortunately, he will not have the same luxury this week because the Chiefs are implied for 30 points. The Raiders could find themselves behind by multiple touchdowns, which would force Gruden to rely heavily on Carr. The good news is the Kansas City secondary is exploitable. Last week, they gave up 75 yards and one touchdown to Nick Foles, before he left with a broken collarbone, and 275 yards and two touchdowns to rookie Gardner Minshew.

Carr is a Week 2 streaming option in single quarterback leagues but not for the faint of heart. 4for4 rankings expert John Paulsen has Carr ranked as the QB17.
