Derek Carr's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST TAKE

Carr’s massive contract makes his 2018-19 season look much worse than it was. Carr completed 68.9% of his passes and threw for over 4,000 yards for the first time in his career last season. Carr’s top two receivers last season were 31-year-old TE Jared Cook and 33-year-old WR Jordy Nelson. The Raiders shoulf have a much improved WR group this season with the additions of Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams, who had nearly 2,000 yards receiving combined last season. SportsLine projects Carr to throw for 4,317 yards and 24 TDS to 12 INTs this season. Those are solid numbers for a QB that is a late round selection in most fantasy drafts. If you are unwilling to grab one of the elite QBs with an early pick, Carr is a good option and could have a big season with the addition of Antonio Brown.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Derek Carr may be worth a roster spot in deeper leagues or may be a decent waiver wire pick up. His 307 projected fantasy points puts him at #22 behind Mitchell Trubisky and ahead of Sam Darnold. He has averaged 15.74 fantasy points in his past 16 games, which is less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 19.2 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 59%, he is the #21 most highly owned quarterback. Derek Carr is expected to come up short of last season's #18 fantasy position rank.

DEREK CARR WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Derek Carr is projected for 21.1 fantasy points which projects to being the #15 ranked quarterback. This may be a week you want to sit Derek Carr. This is projected to be a slightly better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Kirk Cousins but behind Mitchell Trubisky. His projected rank in Week 2 is the same as it is in Week 1. He is projected for 20.5 fantasy points.

DEREK CARR IS THE #17 QB ON FANDUEL AND IS THE #23 HIGHEST PRICED

He is projected for 18.4 FanDuel points and priced at $6.6K. Using average points per dollar in the player pool, he is expected to produce 16.6 FPs, making him worth +$716 more than $6.6K. Below are how he ranks on FanDuel. Look for players with comparable or more fantasy points at a lower or same salary.
