With 8.7 projected rushes and 1.7 projected catches per games, Carter will see the ball enough to be relevant in most leagues.

Heinicke is expected to earn 8% of his projected 31 fantasy points by rushing. He's a more traditional passing QB. Projected for a 4.6 touchdown-to-interception ratio, he isn't not likely to melt down often.
