2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of the true upside quarterbacks to target late in redraft leagues this season, Oaklandís Derek Carr also makes a strong case to be one of the more highly sought-after passers in dynasty leagues. Most rookies donít step right into fantasy success, but the surprisingly low number of bad performances that Carr had in 2014 bodes well for his chances going forward, especially now that the team has made serious strides to improve his weapons. Carr finished as the No. 20 fantasy quarterback last season despite playing for a 3-13 team with few quality targets in the passing game. He scored double-digit fantasy points in 11 of his 16 starts, including six games where he finished with 20 or more. With receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree now rostered and expected to start immediately, Carr will need to develop chemistry with his new weapons, but should have an increased ceiling, especially later in the season.

Although he does not possess much in the way of running ability as he rushed for fewer than 100 yards on the season in 2015, Carr possesses a big, accurate arm when he has time to throw. Without any major improvements to the offensive line, Carr himself will need to get the ball out sooner if the Raiders hope to improve this season. Thankfully, Cooper and Crabtree are both high-quality, physical possession receivers who should give Carr big, reliable targets on short and intermediate throws. Targeting Carr as a QB2 late in drafts is a good option, especially for those lucky enough to land a reliable QB1. Donít expect huge numbers, but roughly 4,000 yards and high-20ís to low-30ís in touchdowns is not out of the question. That should make him a prime candidate to stream on bye weeks.

Crabtree regaining old form?
New Raiders WR appears healthy for first time in years
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 3, 9:25 pm

Oakland Raiders
It's training camp, and optimism can be the norm. But it's safe to say the Raiders believe Michael Crabtree is going to be playing himself into a big contract when the year is over. He's flashing the hands that once led Jim Harbaugh to deem him the best catcher of the football ever. The Former 49ers receiver has answered questions about his speed, stemming from lower-leg injuries he's sustained in the past, and so far, so good. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: A healthy Crabree would do wonders for rookie Amari Cooper and Derek Carr, removing potential double teams from the former and serving as a trustworthy possession receiver for the latter. If Crabtree is truly looking like his old self, owners wouold be wise to track him during the preseason. A healthy Crabtree could emerge as a potential high-upside fantasy WR4 in what should be a ball-control offense in Oakland in 2015.
