The Facts: Entering his eighth NFL season and fourth under Jon Gruden, Carr finally feels comfortable and confident in leading an offense. "I remember the night before every practice, I'd be stressed out," the quarterback said of the early parts of his career, via the team's official website. "In my head, I'm just hard on myself. I'm thinking about everything like, 'I got to do that right.' I'm checking my notes like, 'I got to do that. I wrote this down, got to fix that.' Now, it's just so free."
Diehards Line:Carr is coming off a solid season for the 8-8 Raiders, crossing the 4,000-yard mark for the third straight year under Gruden and compiling a 27-19 TD-INT ratio. He also generated a career-best 101.4 passer rating. There is promise in Vegas, with a young receiver corps that has impressed this offseason, led by second-year players Henry Ruggs III and Bryan Edwards. In addition, the backfield with Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake has the chance to be dynamite. Carr noted that the diverse skillsets of his receivers should help open up the offense in 2021 and he's not wrong. Given his late QB2 price point in current fantasy drafts, you could do worse when looking at inexpensive options.
