FANTASY FOOTBALL BREAKING NEWS: DEREK CARR "LIKELY" TO START WEEK 1

                                                 

After throwing for three touchdowns and 143 yards in the Oakland Raiders' preseason finale on Thursday, a team source confirmed that rookie QB Derek Carr is "likely" to start the team's opener in Week 1.  Considering how poor Matt Schaub has played after coming over in the offseason looking for a fresh start, Carr's excellent preseason has caused team brass to seriously change plans under center with just a little more than a week to go before the games count.

Analysis:  The Raiders have nothing to lose and everything to gain by doing this.  The team is not a playoff contender so it would just be wasting time with Schaub when they could be developing Carr.  While we wouldn't run out and pick up Carr in even two-QB formats, he deserves to be watched given his rapid release and powerful arm.
