RB - NYJ
Michael Carter saw one carry for two yards and caught two passes for three yards on Sunday against the Seahawks.
Carter was the distant No. 3 running back for the Jets behind Ty Johnson and Zonovan Knight. This was the smallest number of touches he has seen all season.
Michael Carter took two carries for six yards to go along with five receptions for 44 yards on Thursday against the Jaguars.
In a game where the Jets trailed the whole game and especially in the second half, Carter saw the field more in the passing game which led to him catching the most passes he has caught in a game since Week 1. He remains off the fantasy radar nonetheless.
Michael Carter rushed the ball four times for 15 yards and caught one pass for 16 yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Detroit Lions.
Starter Zonovan Knight had to leave Sunday's game briefly after getting injured, but even that wasn't enough for Carter to get more than five touches on the course of the day. He isn't a big piece of New York's offense, and he has failed to show much of a spark this season. He shouldn't be started in almost any fantasy league formats for the rest of the season.
Michael Carter rushed for five yards on five carries and caught 3-of-6 targets for an additional 15 yards in New York’s 20-12 loss to the Bills in Week 14.
Carter ceded the lion’s share of the rushing work to Zonovan Knight but handled more of the passing work, out-targeting Knight 6-2, despite being out-carried 17-5. Carter appears to have slid back into his role as complementary back that he filled early in the year before Breece Hall’s knee injury, In the Jets’ last four games, Carter has only totaled 77 yards on 25 touches (3.08-yard avg) and was scratched from Week 13. Carter has slipped back into fantasy irrelevancy with the emergence of Zonovan Knight and is expendable.
Michael Carter is officially active for the Jets' Week 14 matchup with Buffalo.
Carter was able to log full practice sessions all week after missing Week 13 with an ankle injury. Fantasy managers should expect Carter to split time with Zonovan Knight and Ty Johnson against a tough Bills' defense.
