Derek Carr completed 21-of-33 passes for 194 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Raiders' Week 17 loss to the Chiefs.
Carr was sacked six times and appeared to injure his hand against Kansas City, but X-rays after the game were negative. Carr came out of the gate strong, throwing 19 touchdowns to just four interceptions in the first nine weeks. Carr made more mistakes down the stretch, but he still finished with a great 32-to-13 touchdown-to-interception ratio and 3,987 yards. The yardage total was the third highest in Raiders' history. With rookies Amari Cooper and Clive Walford on board and Michael Crabtree under contract for four more years, this passing offense has plenty of room to grow.

Derek Carr completed 24-of-39 passes for 209 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Raiders' 23-20, Week 16 overtime win over the Chargers.

What a long, strange trip it was. Carr struggled mightily for 80 percent of the evening, but started dropping dimes late. He was hurt by the absence of Amari Cooper, who was in and out with a foot injury. His offense also couldn't stop committing penalties, one of which was a mind-numbing intentional grounding from Carr with time running out in regulation. Carr has hit a sophomore wall after his extremely strong start to the season, but has still shown more than enough to earn hype as a QB1 for 2016. He'll end 2015-16 with a tough road game against the Chiefs.

Derek Carr completed 23-of-47 passes for 276 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Raiders' Week 15 loss to the Packers.

Carr was solely responsible for the Raiders falling into the first-quarter 14-0 hole. He threw a horrible interception off his back foot, setting the Packers up at the Raiders' 18-yard line, which led to a John Kuhn rushing touchdown. On his very next pass after the interception, Carr then threw a pick-six to CB Damarious Randall. Carr tried digging Oakland out with two touchdowns to Amari Cooper, giving the Raiders a 20-17 lead in the third quarter, but that was it for the offense. Carr was bad in real life, but the fantasy output was more than respectable with 42 rushing yards on top of it. He also could've had another passing touchdown, but Seth Roberts blatantly dropped an 11-yard score in the end zone. Carr will be a borderline QB1 next week against the Chargers.

Derek Carr completed 12-of-29 passes for 135 yards and two touchdowns in the Raiders' Week 14 win over the Broncos.

The stat line doesn't look great -- and by no means was this a great performance from Carr -- but there were bright spots. After generating zero offense in the first half, Carr bounced back to complete a pair of second-half touchdown drives and avoided turnovers in an imposing environment in Denver. Expect a more productive effort from Carr when the Raiders host the Packers in Week 15. Carr will be a borderline QB1 in that game.

Derek Carr completed 31-of-48 passes for 283 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions in the Raiders' 34-20, Week 13 loss to the Chiefs.

Carr was hurt badly by some crucial drops by his receivers, a pair from Michael Crabtree and a big fourth-down one by Amari Cooper in the first quarter. But a lot of the blame can be placed on Carr thanks to his dreadful second half where he tossed all three of his picks. The first was a falling-off interception to ILB Josh Mauga, who returned it to the one-yard line before Jeremy Maclin scored two plays later. The next was a miscommunication between Carr and Cooper, and Cooper wasn't even in the same area code as the pass. The final was an errant throw that went off Cooper's diving hands and picked off the ground by ex-Raiders SS Tyvon Branch and returned for a touchdown. Carr's touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree was a thing of beauty, however, as he drilled a rocket into tight coverage just before halftime. The other score went to blocking TE Lee Smith. Carr will be a QB2 next week in Denver.

Derek Carr completed 24-of-37 passes for 330 yards and three touchdowns in Oakland's 24-21, Week 12 win over the Titans.

Carr also fumbled twice, losing one, but that was the only blemish on an otherwise stellar afternoon in the rain. All three of Carr's touchdowns were absolute beauties, but the third put Oakland ahead 24-21 with 1:21 remaining. That, of course, proved to be the difference in a gritty road win. Possessing an absolute cannon, Carr has also displayed feathery ball placement. Extremely calm in the pocket, Carr continues to show franchise-QB characteristics as a sophomore. Even against the Chiefs' tough defense, he'll be a QB1 in Week 13.

Derek Carr completed 13-of-25 passes for 169 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in Oakland's 18-13, Week 11 loss to the Lions.

The scoreless outing was Carr's first since Week 1. The Raiders couldn't get anything going on Ford Field's fast track. Carr was hurt by drops and a nonexistent running game, but also had some shaky ball placement. He had a horrific interception called back by a penalty. In the midst of his worst two-game stretch of the year, Carr will try to bounce back against the Titans' declining pass defense in Week 12. He remains a QB1.

Derek Carr completed 29-of-43 passes for 302 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions and rushed twice for 12 yards in the Raiders' Week 10 loss to the Vikings.

Terence Newman was responsible for both of Carr’s interceptions. The second one was especially egregious. Carr forced a bad end-zone throw to Andre Holmes that Newman caught on the deflection. He was trying to squeeze a play in before the two-minute warning. Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree were mostly held in check by the Vikings’ secondary, forcing Carr to check down to Mychal Rivera and Latavius Murray. Two of his longest completions—a 38-yarder to Amari Cooper and a 34-yard touchdown pass to Andre Holmes—were 50/50 balls that could have easily been picked. Garbage time certainly played a role in Carr reaching 300 yards for the fifth time this season. Carr should bounce back next week against the cellar-dwelling Lions.

Derek Carr completed 24-of-44 passes for 301 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Oakland's 38-35, Week 9 loss to the Steelers.

Standing and delivering big throws all afternoon, Carr could have had an even bigger day if not for a multitude of drops by his pass catchers. His best throw was a 38-yard, touchdown-scoring dime to Michael Crabtree in the face of the rush to tie the score at 35 with 1:15 remaining. With half the season now in the books, the star sophomore is on pace for 4,188 yards and 39 touchdowns. He's thrown only four interceptions in 273 passes, and has at least three scores in each of his past three starts. Carr is locked in as a QB1 for next week's game against the Vikings.

Derek Carr completed 23-of-36 passes for 333 yards and four touchdowns Week 8 against the Jets.

At one point in the first half, Carr was 13-for-15 for 163 yards and three touchdowns. Carr’s stats were helped by the Jets inability to tackle, but he made two beautiful throws on Andre Holmes’ touchdowns and got the ball out quickly all game. Carr has 622 yards and has thrown seven touchdowns to zero interceptions since the Raiders’ Week 6 bye. He needs to be added in all formats, and he is worth a start next week against the Steelers.
Sun, Nov 1, 2015 07:21:00 PM

Derek Carr completed 24-of-31 passes for 289 yards and three touchdowns in the Raiders' Week 7 win over the Chargers.

Carr could have had an even bigger day had the Chargers put up a fight before garbage time. The Raiders took their foot off the gas after building a 30-3 lead, and had very few offensive possessions in the final two quarters. San Diego particularly dominated possession time in fourth frame. Through six games, Carr has an 11:3 TD-to-INT ratio. Unfortunately, Carr will be a fantasy option to avoid in Week 8 against the Jets' defense.

Derek Carr completed 26-of-39 passes for 249 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Raiders' Week 5 loss to the Broncos.

Carr also was strip-sacked by Von Miller inside his own 20-yard line, setting up a short Broncos field goal. His interception was returned 74 yards for a touchdown by Broncos CB Chris Harris. On the play, two Raiders receivers ran double shallow crosses, but neither was looking for the ball, and Harris picked it off and ran it back to the house. Carr's touchdown was on a play-action boot to Marcel Reece. Denver's league-best secondary had this game on lock all afternoon. Carr and the 2-3 Raiders head into their bye before going to San Diego.
Sun, Oct 11, 2015 07:43:00 PM

Derek Carr completed 20-of-33 passes for 196 yards, two touchdowns and an interception Week 4 against the Bears.

Carr made a beautifully placed throw to Amari Cooper in the back of the end zone for the first touchdown and hooked up with Roy Helu in the flat for a short score later in the second quarter. The interception was not Carr's fault. It bounced right off the chest of Latavius Murry and into the hands of Pernell McPhee. Murray fumbled a pitch later in the game. Carr played well in the loss, but he will not be a recommended option when the Broncos come to town next week.
Sun, Oct 4, 2015 06:10:00 PM

Derek Carr completed 20-of-32 passes for 314 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions in the Raiders' Week 3 win over the Browns.

Looking like a legitimate franchise quarterback for the second straight week, Carr moved the chains with Amari Cooper and threw two first-half touchdown passes, the first to Andre Holmes from three yards out and the second to Seth Roberts from 13 yards away. The Raiders primarily stuck the ball in Latavius Murray's belly in the final two quarters. With improved weapons and at least average offensive line play, Carr is trending toward high-end QB2 fantasy value entering a Week 4 cupcake matchup against the Bears.

Derek Carr completed 30-of-46 passes for 351 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception in the Raiders' Week 2 upset of the Ravens.

Back from last week's right hand injury, Carr turned in one of the best games of his young career. He opened it with a 68-yard touchdown bomb to Amari Cooper, beating studly Ravens CB Jimmy Smith, and was efficient in the short and intermediate passing games while consistently keeping the chains moving against a solid defense. One of Carr's most impressive plays was a third-quarter QB keeper that gained 24 yards. One play later, Carr hit Michael Crabtree for a 37-yard touchdown. Unfortunately, Carr hung up a fourth-quarter pass that was easily intercepted by Ravens SS Will Hill and returned 25 yards. Carr rallied to hit Seth Roberts for a game-winning touchdown with 26 seconds left. Carr gets a tougher matchup in Week 3 against an underrated Browns pass defense that sacked Marcus Mariota seven times on Sunday. Carr was sacked just once by the Ravens.
