From NFL Now: It's looking more likely that #Raiders starting QB Derek Carr is back for 2021, while backup QB Marcus Mariota is not. He's been the subject of trade calls.
Derek Carr is currently 4for4's QB17 in John Paulsen's 'never too early rankings'. Six-year veteran Marcus Mariota has garnered some interest from various teams across the league and could find himself a third NFL home in the coming weeks.
LV QB Derek Carr - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Denver Broncos
Derek Carr somehow managed to return to action last week after getting hurt in the previous game, and he put up solid fantasy numbers in a strange and narrow loss to the Dolphins. He wound up with 336 yards and a touchdown passing, and he added a rushing touchdown. Carr has been better than his reputation this season as a viable and efficient streaming option in nice matchups.
This week, Carr faces a Broncos defense that ranks 10th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. Not a great matchup, but the Raiders will want to finish strong after a disappointing second half to the season, especially against a division rival. Carr is a fringe-QB1 option this week, and a nice streamer if your starter is sitting or hurt.
