Perine and Johnson were both listed as second on the depth chart leaving the rookie Carter buried. That had been the trend in preseason games with Carter only getting in those game late. Carter will need to make a sharp and quick climb in order to have value in typical redraft leagues. Until then, it may be hard to devote a roster spot to him.
Hughes said Coleman is still really fast and on Monday took a screen to the house outrunning the entire defense up the right sideline. While Carter is the hot name and a rookie, and having a good camp as well, signs have indicated this could be more of a split at RB for the Jets this season. However, we rank Carter at 25th among our RBs, which is well ahead of Coleman's rank of 60th. We think Carter is the back to own here.
Glaser doesn't see any Jet back going over 1,000 yards rushing, but the trio could hit 1,500 yards rushing in his opinion. The rookie Carter is known for his receiving skills, too, so there's a chance he could have a bigger role as the season goes on, however pass protection is always a concern for a young RB.
