Derek Carr has three straight seasons with at least 4,000 passing yards and a 67% completion percentage. After seven seasons as a starter, he now holds the Raiders all-time records for completions, passing yards, and passing touchdowns. He has been a solid starter but has yet to elevate his play or the franchise to an elite level. In a division dominated by Patrick Mahomes and an emerging star in Justin Herbert, the Raiders will be in the market for a replacement if he cannot take the next step in his career. From a fantasy perspective, Carr has finished between QB13 and QB20 in each of his seven seasons. He has been the personification of a high-floor, low-ceiling QB2 throughout his career. As more athletic young quarterbacks enter the league each year, it will only become harder for Carr to produce QB1 fantasy numbers. In seven seasons, he has a grand total of 635 rushing yards and 6 rushing touchdowns. In single quarterback leagues, it probably makes sense to target a younger passer with more upside as your backup even if they come with a lower floor than Carr.
