Derek Carrier: Back practicing Tuesday

Carrier (concussion) participated in Tuesday's practice, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Analysis: Carrier has been battling a concussion since the end of last season, but it appears as though he has been medically cleared to resume football activities. He will be fighting for a depth spot at tight end on the Raiders' final roster this offseason.

Derek Carrier: Hauls in game winner

Carrier caught two passes on as many targets for 29 yards and the game-winning touchdown during Sunday's 24-21 win over the Steelers.

Analysis: Carrier's first touchdown of the season came at a perfect time as the six-yard score put the Raiders on top with less than a minute left in the contest. Fellow tight end Jared Cook surpassed the 100-yard mark for a second straight week, limiting Carrier's volume in the offense for good reason.

Derek Carrier: Notches one reception Sunday

Carrier caught his lone target for five yards in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Broncos.

Analysis: Carrier has caught at least one pass in each of the Raiders' first two games, but Jared Cook remains the primary option at tight end. Carrier also played half as many snaps as fellow backup Lee Smith, who mainly serves as a blocker.

Derek Carrier: Sees three targets Monday

Carrier caught two passes on three targets for 20 yards in Monday's loss to the Rams.

Analysis: Carrier was certainly overshadowed by starting tight end Jared Cook and his nine catches for 180 yards on 12 targets, but the former logged 25 offensive snaps to fellow backup Lee Smith's nine. Carrier shouldn't warrant much fantasy consideration for as long as Cook remains healthy, but he's ahead of Smith in target share despite being listed No. 3 on the depth chart at tight end.
