Week 12 at Houston
Veteran Tevin Coleman will see time with Ty Johnson as rookie Michael Carter is out for a couple of weeks. Coleman has 30 carries for 118 yards on the season and five receptions as well.
The Jets face the Texans who ranked 19th in aFPA to running backs. Coleman is the highest-ranked back for New York in standard leagues but not enough to warrant a start. Keep Coleman on the bench.
Jets running back Michael Carter is expected to miss a couple of weeks with a low-grade high ankle sprain, head coach Robert Saleh said Monday afternoon. Carter went down with the injury early in the third quarter of Sunday’s 24-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins.
Carter had 63 yards on nine carries before getting hurt. With Zach Wilson set to return sooner than later, and Elijah Moore emerging at WR, the Jets will have to wait a couple of weeks to have all three of their rookie centerpieces on offense be on the field together. Coleman and Johnson will likely take over most of the RB duties with Carter out of the lineup.
Davis should be a welcomed addition back at WR for whoever is under center. Davis has been out since Week 7 with a hip injury. Meanwhile, Coleman could take away snaps from Carter and Johnson to further crowd the backfield. The Jets host the Bills in a tough matchup this week so neither RB will be a solid fantasy option.
