2020 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Carlson made his only field-goal attempt and buried all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 32-31 win over the Broncos.
ANALYSIS
Carlson missed just two of 35 total field-goal attempts during an impressive 2020 campaign and also made 45 of 47 extra-point tries. His 144 points set the franchise record for most points scored in a single season, which was previously held by Raiders legend Sebastian Janikowski. Carlson's stellar closing stretch earned him AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for December, helping him gain momentum ahead of restricted free agency this offseason. Las Vegas likely plans to lure him back.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
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.
