Draft note
by John Paulsen
Carr has finished No. 13 and No. 15 in the last two seasons and is the 29th quarterback off the board. He’s not a sexy pick, but assuming the offensive line holds up–which may be a big assumption given their losses up front–he’s a great value as a QB2/QB3 in two-QB/superflex leagues.

Scouting report

LV QB Derek Carr - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Derek Carr was very quietly the QB13 last year. That’s pretty good for a guy you could often find waiting for you on the waiver wire. Carr is nothing if not consistent. He’s had over 4,000 yards in each of the past three years and his touchdown totals have never dipped below 19 in seven years as a starter. Last year, he threw for 4,103 yards and 27 touchdowns, with just nine interceptions. This year, he should be helped by the additions of John Brown and Kenyan Drake and should continue the same production he’s had over the past few seasons.

Fantasy Downside

Carr doesn’t have a ton of upside. What you see is what you get. The Raiders also brought back Marcus Mariota to back him up. Mariota has a bit of a following and if the Raiders struggle, it’s always possible the team gives Mariota a chance.

2021 Bottom Line

Carr is a nice value as a QB2 in all fantasy league formats. He’s available in the last few rounds of all drafts and provides a great, steady bye week filler for your starter. He’s also a nice fallback option if you swing on a slightly riskier starter or a safe value in 2QB and SuperFlex formats.
