Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Before New York's week six bye, these are Carter's opportunities (targets+ carries) per game: 6, 14, 12, 16, and 13. While the state of the offense around him prevents him from being incredibly efficient with those opportunities, he's getting enough work to be on the redraft radar consistently. In a week where so many other starting options at the RB position are unavailable due to bye weeks and injuries, Carter has to be in consideration for starting fantasy lineups. The Patriots are only allowing 14.7 fantasy points per game so far this season to opposing RBs, so the upside might no be there with Carter, but we know that he's going to see anywhere between 12-18 touches here. He can be viewed as a high-end RB3. 
Derek Lofland

Carter had 11 rushing attempts for 59 yards, 2 receptions for 29 yards, and no touchdowns the last time he faced the Patriots. Carter is a low upside flex option this week.
