2021 Fantasy Outlook
Carlson's 2020 was a huge improvement from 2019, though the jump in FG percentage was partially a product of his league-high 18 FGAs from 20-29 yards. He also got far more chances overall -- sixth in FGAs and ninth in PATs -- buoyed by a career year from QB Derek Carr. Even if he can't match last year's pinpoint accuracy, Carlson is a solid kicker and plays for a team that has most of its talent on offense. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
Carlson is attached to a Raiders offense that took a big step forward in 2019, but his own work was far less impressive, including four misses from 40-49 yards and another two from 50-plus yards. He also didn't see a ton of volume, with the Raiders favoring a slow pace of play and struggling to get stops on defense. The third-year pro could find himself in a preseason job battle with undrafted rookie Dominik Eberle.
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.
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.
