Michael Carter takes full command of Jets backfield in Week 7

by Robert Lorge | Jets Correspondent | Mon, Oct 25th 10:38am EDT

Michael Carter racked up 104 scrimmage yards en route to a solid outing in any PPR format.

Fantasy Impact:

The former Tar Heel looked to have fully taken over the Jets backfield coming out of the bye. He played on 72% of the snaps and handled 11 of the 17 total carries. He was only able to muster 37 scoreless yards, but he was the preferred runner. He also received nine targets, which paced the team. He caught eight of them for 67 yards. While he did not find the end zone, the rookie put himself on the backend RB2 radar in full-PPR leagues. Fantasy managers shouldn't be afraid to fire him up as a solid flex play moving forward. He does, however, receive a solid downgrade in standard-scoring leagues.
