Carter should probably be wishing White will remain the starter for just a little bit longer after the workload that he received in week seven. Carter saw as many targets in week seven (9) as he had the three previous games combined and it resulted in over 100 total yards for the rookie RB. With White's tendency to check the ball down, Carter should continue to see a significant workload this week through the air and he's going to have value for fantasy as the main option in this backfield, despite the tough matchup against the Bengals DST. He can be viewed as a high-end/mid-range RB3 for week eight.

Michael Carter takes full command of Jets backfield in Week 7

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.
