The Raiders are officially looking into trading QB Derek Carr, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Making the process even more official is a public goodbye letter the QB wrote to Raiders fans. This has been the obvious path since the team benched Carr in favor of QB Jarrett Stidham for the final 2 games. Rapoport says there's a "firm deadline of Feb. 15" to work something out. That's when Carr's $40.4 million salary for each of the next 2 seasons would become fully guaranteed. In a QB-hungry league, this motivated seller should be able to work something out. Carr does possess a no-trade clause, giving him power to choose the destination. We'll see how the whole situation plays out and who starts at QB for the 2023 Raiders (Tom Brady?).

The Raiders are expected to explore trade options for QB Derek Carr this offseason, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport adds that there are "scenarios" in which Carr remains with Vegas but believes he'll "almost certainly" be playing elsewhere in 2023. Carr's $32.9 million base salary for 2023 becomes fully guaranteed 3 days after the Super Bowl, so a move figures to happen by then. Carr never looked comfortable in HC Josh McDaniels' offense this season. His 60.8% completion rate is his worst since his 2014 rookie campaign; his 7.0 yards per attempt his worst since 2017. Carr turns 32 in March.

Raiders HC Josh McDaniels announced on Wednesday that the team will move forward with QB Jarrett Stidham as the starter. This news effectively ends QB Derek Carr's 2022 season. The short-term fantasy outlook of this move certainly lowers expectations for all Raiders players in Week 17 vs. the 49ers. From a broader perspective, Ari Meirov of PFF reports that Carr's contract has $40.4 million which becomes guaranteed if he's unable to pass a physical. The Raiders would save $29.25 million in cap space if they decided to trade or cut Carr from the roster within 3 days of the conclusion of Super Bowl LVII on February 12, 2023. Plainly speaking, we could see the veteran signal-caller suit up for a new team in 2023 and beyond. This will certainly be a massive storyline in the offseason. Stay tuned as the situation evolves in the coming months.

Raiders QB Derek Carr went just 16 of 30 passing for 174 yards in Saturday night's loss to the Steelers. He threw just 1 TD pass -- to WR Hunter Renfrow -- and 3 INTs while taking 3 sacks. WR Davante Adams managed only 2 receptions for 15 yards on a team-high 9 targets. TE Darren Waller led Vegas with 58 receiving yards on 4 catches. Renfrow matched him with 4 receptions for 42 yards. The Raiders head back home to face a difficult 49ers defense in Week 17.

Raiders QB Derek Carr threw for a modest 231 yards in Sunday's win over the Patriots but also tallied 3 TDs. He found WR Mack Hollins, TE Darren Waller and WR Keenan Cole for scores. Waller caught all 3 of his targets for 48 yards in his 1st game since Week 5. Hollins tied WR Davante Adams for the team lead with just 4 receptions. Adams (9) and Hollins (8) were the only 2 Raiders to draw more than 3 targets. Week 16 brings a matchup with Pittsburgh, which hit Sunday as a near-neutral scoring matchup for QBs.

Raiders QB Derek Carr amassed 295 yards and 3 TDs in Sunday's OT win at Seattle. He hit WR Mack Hollins (4-63 receiving), RB Ameer Abdullah (3-39) and TE Foster Moreau (3-33) for TDs. Carr also tossed a pair of INTs, but he has posted his 2 best fantasy scores of the season in his past 2 games.

Raiders QB Derek Carr racked up 307 yards in Sunday's OT win over the Broncos. Carr finished regulation with just 239 yards. But then he hit TE Foster Moreau for a 33-yard catch-and-run and found WR Davante Adams for a 35-yard game-winning TD. It was Carr's 2nd 300-yard game of the season and first since Week 3. Next comes a visit to Seattle, which had been playing tough defense before softening in a Week 10 loss to the Buccaneers in Germany.

Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow has been placed on IR with an oblique injury. He'll miss at least the next 4 games, making Week 14 his earliest possible return. Renfrow has dealt with a few different injuries this season and averaged just 4.8 targets, 3.5 caches and 32 yards across 6 games. He's cuttable in all redraft leagues. Vegas will now be without Renfrow and TE Darren Waller for at least the next 4 weeks, which should push even more value to RB Josh Jacobs and WR Davante Adams. WR Mack Hollins and TE Foster Moreau should also get target boosts. Keelan Cole figures to take over as the #3 WR but isn't worth adding to fantasy rosters.

Raiders WR Davante Adams racked up 10 catches for 146 yards and 2 TDs on 17 targets in Sunday's come-from-ahead loss at Jacksonville. He garnered 47.2% target share, 47.6% of QB Derek Carr's completions, 56.4% of the team's receiving yards and the only 2 TDs. TE Foster Moreau ranked 2nd with 5 targets, catching only 2 for 42 yards. WRs Hunter Renfrow (3-26 receiving) and Mack Hollins (2-17) each drew 4 targets. The Raiders host the Colts in Week 10, a defense that entered Sunday as a near-neutral scoring matchup for fantasy QBs but 4th-toughest on WRs.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs ran for just 43 yards on 10 carries in Sunday's shutout loss at New Orleans. Jacobs added 4 targets but caught only 2 for 11 yards on a dreadful offensive day for Las Vegas. QB Derek Carr threw for only 101 yards, with no TDs and 1 INT before giving way to Jarrett Stidham in garbage time. Jacobs also gave way late in the game to RB Ameer Abdullah, who finished with 5 targets (all in the 2nd half). We're not worried about Jacobs off this outing.

Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. He'll be ready to go for this weekend's game vs. New Orleans.

Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) was limited in Wednesday's practice. We've heard nothing to suggest that his availability for Sunday's game vs. the Saints is in question, but we'll keep an eye on him over the next few days.
