Derek Carr’s time as the leader of this franchise has come to an end. Unless Josh McDaniels believes Jarrett Stidham is the league’s next version of Geno Smith, nothing will change in that win/loss column without the answer under center.
Key FA: RB Josh Jacobs, LB Denzel Perryman, TE Foster Moreau

Depth Chart Fantasy Impact
The Raiders added firepower in March, sending 1st- and 2nd-round picks to Green Bay for WR Davante Adams. He leads the NFL in receptions, receiving yards and receiving TDs over the last 4 seasons – despite missing 7 games. Adams remained as dominant as ever in 2021, setting career highs with 123 catches and 1,553 yards and scoring 11 TDs. Adams and QB Derek Carr played together for 2 years at Fresno State, connecting 233 times for 3,031 yards and 38 TDs.
Vegas lost WR Zay Jones in free agency and traded WR Bryan Edwards to Atlanta in May. They added WRs Demarcus Robinson, Keelan Cole, Tyron Johnson and Mack Hollins to serve as depth behind Adams and WR Hunter Renfrow.
RBs Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake return to the backfield. But the Raiders spent a 4th-round pick on Georgia RB Zamir White and signed RBs Brandon Bolden and Ameer Abdullah in free agency. New HC Josh McDaniels appears to be planning a committee backfield.
