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 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Denver Broncos
In Week 16, Carr was 26/30 for 291 yards, one touchdown, zero interceptions, scored a rushing touchdown and finished as the QB8.
The Raiders are motivated to win because they still have a slim chance of making the playoffs. A lot of pieces would have to fall into place but it is still mathematically possible.

The Denver defense is eighteenth best against quarterbacks, per our schedule adjust fantasy points metric. 4for4 rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Carr ranked as a low-end QB2. Carr has been a streaming option several times this season but is a risky start on the road with the Raiders implied for 18.75 points.
