Draft note
by John Paulsen
Carr finished the season as the No. 15 fantasy quarterback despite losing his WR1 (Antonio Brown) early and then his WR2 (Tyrell Williams) for a few weeks midseason. Williams was never quite right, so Carr was playing with a short deck for most of the year. The Raiders drafted Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards, and hybrid back/receiver Lynn Bowden, so Carr’s weapons will be much improved in 2020. Carr has pretty severe home/away splits over the past two seasons, averaging 16.5 fantasy points at home and just 12.2 points on the road, so he should be a worthwhile streamer in home games in 2020.

LV QB Derek Carr - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

For how maligned Derek Carr is, he’s actually put up respectable fantasy numbers throughout his career. He’s coming off two straight seasons with at least 4,000 passing yards and threw 21 touchdowns to only eight interceptions last year. He was the 20th-ranked quarterback in fantasy points per game, putting him above names like Philip Rivers, Sam Darnold and Baker Mayfield. He has the seventh-best offensive line in football according to Justin Edwards, and gained significant weapons in the draft, including speedster Henry Ruggs and all-purpose player Lynn Bowden.

Fantasy Downside

Carr’s main downside is any challenge he could potentially get from the recently acquired Marcus Mariota. Mariota brings a whole other element to the game with his scrambling ability, and if the Raiders struggle early on, Carr could have a shorter leash than he’s used to after starting for the past six seasons.

2020 Bottom Line

Carr doesn’t cost you anything in most leagues, making him a viable streaming option and possible backup quarterback for fantasy owners who wish to punt the position early in the draft. In 2QB or SuperFlex leagues, he offers some safety as a bye-week filler with upside, as his potential to improve with a better supporting cast is better than advertised. Carr is 29 years old and may be entering the prime of his career.
