The Raiders made one of the biggest offseason moves in all the NFL – they brought in Davante Adams.
This one move makes the Raider’s offense a force.
This will have a massive impact on Derek Carr. Carr has been a great quarterback since coming into the league and although he has had talented receivers he has never had a receiver like Adams.
I predict Carr will have his best season yet.
1. Derek Carr has the best PFF grade of his career
Carr has shown the difference that having a No. 1 receiver, or even an accomplished deep threat, has on his performances. His best season in the NFL is still 2016 — at least in terms of PFF grades — but he came close to toppling it in 2020 and now has Davante Adams added to his receivers. Adams has been the NFL’s best receiver for a couple of years, leading the league PFF grade (93.1) and third in yards per route run (2.82) over the last two seasons. Adams was also Carr’s favorite target in college, so the two already have chemistry.
