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 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Los Angeles Chargers
In Week 9, Carr was a streaming option and finished as the QB12. He finished two points higher than Josh Allen, QB13, and 0.1 points behind Deshaun Watson, QB11. Carr was 20/31 for 289 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions.

The Chargers defense is a run funnel, which means they are better against quarterbacks than running backs. They are sixth best against quarterbacks but seventh worst against running backs, as shown by our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. On paper, this matchup is better for Josh Jacobs than Derek Carr. However, the over/under (48.5) is decent and Carr could benefit from this game turning into a shoot-out. 4for4 rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Carr ranked as a high end QB2.
