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

Costly miss in one-point loss
KOakland Raiders
January 6, 2020
Carlson converted three of four field-goal attempts in the Raiders' Week 17 loss to the Broncos, missing a 39-yard attempt wide left in the process.
ANALYSIS
Carlson, who missed just one of his 17 field-goal attempts in 10 games with the Raiders during his rookie campaign in 2018, took a step back throughout the latter half of the 2019 season. The Auburn product connected on 73 percent (19 of 26) of his field-goal attempts and missed a pair of extra-point tries in 2019. Carlson especially struggled from lengthier distances, going 6-for-12 from 40-plus yards out. He'll become an exclusive-rights free agent in 2020 as the Raiders make the move to Las Vegas.

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.
