Draft note
by John Paulsen
Carter is being pigeonholed as a pass-catching back despite the 94 rush yards per game he posted in his final two seasons at North Carolina, and that was with Javonte Williams in the same backfield. Carter’s weight (~200 lbs) seems to be the major hangup, but his primary competition for touches, Tevin Coleman, is only listed 5-10 lbs higher! Who cares? The reason I would draft Carter at his cost (pick 90) is that Coleman is his primary competition. Coleman has a total of 811 combined yards in his last 22 games playing in one of the most prolific rushing attacks in the league.

NYJ RB Michael Carter - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Denver
Rookie Michael Carter went from five touches to 13 in his first two weeks as a professional. He ended up with 88 yards from scrimmage and we think that's where the Jets will eventually go with their running game. Carter will be used in the passing game which will eventually give him some value in PPR leagues. For now, he will still split time with Ty Johnson and veteran Tevin Coleman.

It's a decent matchup for Carter against Denver who was ranked 21st in aFPA to running backs last year. We expect Carter to have some impact on the game but the touches might peak at 13 for at least the first half of the season. Keep him on the bench for Week 3 but if he is on the waiver wire, pick him as his fantasy stock is trending upward.
