WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Derek Carrier | Free Agent TE

Derek Carrier (torn pec) is out for the season.

Carrier's season ends with two receptions for 13 yards, but he was a key contributor for the Raiders in multiple-tight-end sets. The Raiders are fortunate to be deep at tight end, but it's still unfortunate that Carrier will be out for the rest of the year. We wish him luck on his recovery.

The Raiders re-signed Derek Carrier.

The Raiders like to utilize their tight ends, and Carrier is entering his fourth season with Jon Gruden. From a fantasy perspective, Carrier is off the radar for now.

Derek Carrier scores in Week 14.

Carrier caught two passes for 29 yards and a touchdown against the Steelers. He had a 23-yard reception down the seam and scored on a six-yard touchdown was a game-winner in a tough win for Oakland. Carrier is not a recommended fantasy option right now, as he’s a better real-life contributor for his team.

Derek Carrier catches two passes in Week 1.

Carrier worked as a split-out receiver for much of the game, and he played well, gaining 20 yards on his two receptions (three targets). Carrier isn't a recommended fantasy option, but he's a solid real-life contributor for the Raiders.

The Raiders signed tight end Derek Carrier.

Carrier spent time with the Redskins over the last three years, and he also played with the Rams last season, so he's been with two of the people Raiders head coach Jon Gruden knows best in the NFL: his brother Jay in Washington and a protege in Rams head coach Sean McVay. Carrier isn't likely to deliver much fantasy value in 2018, but maybe he'll get a sizable role and surprise.

Derek Carrier catches lone target in Week 3 win.

Carrier gained 17 yards on his reception against the 49ers. He'll be more of a help in real life than for your fantasy team.

The Redskins traded TE Derek Carrier to the Rams, according to Adam Schefter.

Rams head coach Sean McVay was Carrier's offensive coordinator in Washington, and he apparently liked him enough to bring him in. The Rams have second-year tight end Tyler Higbee and rookie tight end Gerald Everett, so Carrier is unlikely to have fantasy value this season. But he adds some excellent depth to the tight end group for LA.

Derek Carrier scores in Week 3 of the preseason.

The fifth-year tight end had two receptions (on two targets) for 22 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' exhibition versus the Bengals. It's great to see Carrier score, but unfortunately he might struggle to make the final roster for the Redskins, considering the depth at the tight end position. If he ends up not making the Redskins, there will be other teams interested in him.
