Michael Carter hits pay dirt in Week 17 win

Michael Carter rushed for 61 yards on seven carries in the Cardinals’ 35-31 win over the Eagles. He caught his lone target for a six yard touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

Carter’s six-yard touchdown reception came in the third quarter as the Cardinals’ began their comeback. The 24-year-old was the only other running back to record a rushing attempt behind starter James Conner. Carter will likely see plenty of playing time in Week 18, but should not be started by fantasy managers playing next week.

Michael Carter sees four carries in Week 13

Michael Carter carried the ball four times for 25 yards in a 24-10 win over the Steelers in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact

Carter was not targeted in the passing game in the win. He has now seen exactly four carries in each of his two games with the Cardinals since the Jets cut him loose a few weeks back. Carter will be on bye in Week 14 before he takes on the 49ers in Week 15.

Michael Carter gets eight touches in Cardinals debut

Michael Carter rushed for 19 yards on four carries and caught all four of his targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 37-14 loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

Carter made his debut for the Cardinals on Sunday less than two weeks after joining his new team. He appeared to be the clear No. 2 RB in the Arizona backfield and finished with just two fewer touches than lead back James Conner. Given Conner's track record with injuries, Carter is worth a fantasy roster spot as a handcuff at minimum.

Michael Carter claimed by Cardinals

Michael Carter has been claimed off of waivers by the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Carter was surprisingly waived by the Jets following a tough Week 10 loss to the Raiders, but he has already found a new home for himself. The Cardinals put in a waiver claim for him and are bringing him in to help solidify a RB room that's currently led by James Conner. It remains to be seen if he will get enough work to be fantasy relevant on his own, but either way, his presence in this backfield is less than ideal for Conner and his workload moving forward.

Michael Carter quiet in Week 10 loss

Michael Carter did not log a reception on his lone target in the Jets’ 16-12 loss to the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Carter also was not used in the running game as the team only used Breece Hall and Dalvin Cook in Sunday’s loss. The Jets’ offense is struggling and Carter is not seeing enough touches currently to be fantasy viable. Fantasy managers can confidently move on from Carter for now.
