Every year we give our premium content members a team-by-team, player-by-player look at the NFL season that was. The coverage will be in-depth, but because the Dynasty Capsule series begins immediately after the season, we won’t use it to discuss free agency or the draft. Come see us in early May once Mr. Irrelevant is off the board for another 32-article series giving you the same detailed discussion you’ll see below.
Buckle up dynasty fans, because you’re about to be reminded why our motto is, “There is no off-season.”
While the Oakland Raiders as a whole have some significant draft picks to build with in 2019, things truly could not be any lower for Carr after a rough 2018 season. Carr currently holds an ADP of 209.5, which is his lowest ranking since 2014 when he was drafted into the league. He is currently the 29th quarterback being taken off the board in dynasty startups, which is why he is an excellent buy low option right now.
Although he faced a variety of injuries in 2018, Carr managed to play in all 16 games, putting up some surprisingly impressive numbers. He threw for 4,049 yards, 19 touchdowns and just 10 interceptions – the second-lowest mark of his career. Nothing quite jumps off the board, but despite being sacked 51 times in 2018, he still managed to put the highest completion percentage of his career (68%).
While owners will question the direction of the Raiders and the playing ability of Carr; he is just 27 years-old with a lot of football left in the tank. I believe in Jon Gruden’s ability to make the Raiders contenders once again in the next two-three years and Carr should be under center for those seasons.
