2019 Fantasy Outlook
Selected in the fifth round last year, Carlson lasted just two games with the Vikings but did nice work after resurfacing in Oakland. He missed one kick, a 45-yarder, in 10 games with the Raiders, setting him up to handle the job without competition this summer. The additions of Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams create upside for the Raiders offense, but overall team strength remains a concern. Read Past Outlooks

Sticking with Raiders
KLas Vegas Raiders
March 15, 2020
Carlson was tendered a contract by the Raiders on Friday, Jerry McDonald of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
ANALYSIS
The 25-year-old took a step back in his sophomore season as he converted 19 of 26 field-goal attempts and 34 of 36 extra-point attempts in 2019, but the Raiders are currently without another kicker on the roster. Carlson was set to be an exclusive rights free agent, and the team still figures to at least bring in some competition for training camp.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Carlson leaves Auburn as the reigning SEC Special Teams Player of the Year and two-time first-team all-conference selection after converting 100 percent of his PATs and over 90 percent of his kicks from within 40 yards over three seasons. The Vikings spent a fifth-round pick on him despite re-signing last year's starter, Kai Forbath, in March. Since not many kickers historically have been drafted that high, it's safe to assume the rookie is the favorite to win out – especially given the non-guaranteed nature of Forbath's one-year, $775,000 contract, the 6-5 rookie could become a decent fantasy option while serving as the leg of one of the league's better offenses.
