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. Nov 22 - 4:36 PM

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.
Nov 15 - 8:14 PM

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.
Nov 8 - 5:21 PM

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.
Nov 1 - 7:21 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.
Oct 25 - 7:58 PM

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.
Oct 11 - 7:43 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.
Oct 4 - 6:10 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.
Sep 27 - 5:04 PM

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.

Derek Carr (hand) is probable for Week 2 against the Ravens.

Carr practiced in full all week so there was never much doubt about his status for Week 2. The Ravens tormented Peyton Manning in the opener, which doesn't bode well for Carr. He's a low-end QB2 this week.
Sep 18 - 3:52 PM

Derek Carr (hand) is practicing in full for Week 2.

Barring an unforeseen setback, Carr is going to start against the Ravens. It's a boost for Amari Cooper's WR2 candidacy.
Sep 17 - 6:07 PM

Coach Jack Del Rio expects Derek Carr (hand) to start Week 2 against the Ravens.

"We'd anticipate he'd be ready to go," Del Rio said. Carr is practicing without restrictions, but will be at less than full health for Week 2. The Ravens defense should be started in 12-team leagues.
Sep 16 - 6:35 PM

Coach Jack Del Rio said Derek Carr (hand) is in "good shape" to start Week 2 against the Ravens.

The Raiders are encouraged after viewing X-rays of Carr's bruised thumb on his throwing hand. The expectation is he'll practice this week and be ready for Sunday's tilt with Baltimore. He's obviously not a fantasy option against a defense that held Peyton Manning back in Week 1, even after losing pass rusher Terrell Suggs. The Ravens' defense is an elite option even with Carr in the lineup.
Sep 15 - 8:20 PM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Raiders were "encouraged" by Derek Carr's (hand) Monday MRI and have informed free agent Christian Ponder he will not be re-signed unless Carr has a setback.

Carr is believed to be dealing with a "bruised thumb" on his right (throwing) hand. If the Raiders aren't going to sign Ponder, it means they believe Carr could play in Week 2 against the Ravens. Matt McGloin is the only other quarterback on Oakland's roster. For now, we'd bet on Carr at least being active for the game. The Raiders very likely won't decide whether Carr will start until following Thursday or Friday's practice.
Sep 14 - 4:54 PM's Ian Rapoport reports Derek Carr has been diagnosed with a bruised throwing thumb, but confirms he's awaiting MRI results.

Per Rapsheet, Carr's status will depend on "if the swelling goes down." ESPN's Chris Mortensen has already reported Carr is expected to miss Week 2, and that the Raiders have "reached out" to Christian Ponder. We should have a pretty good idea of Carr's odds of suiting up by the time Oakland returns to practice on Wednesday.
