New York Jets RB Michael Carter rushed for 59 yards on 11 carries against the New England Patriots in Week 2. He also caught two passes for 29 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Carter shared playing time with Ty Johnson during the game with Tevin Coleman also receiving a few carries. It appears like the Jets will use a committee at the position for the time being, but Carter may have the most fantasy value among the three. He could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

New York Jets RB Michael Carter rushed four times for just six yards in Week 1 against the Carolina Panthers and he added one grab for 14 yards on two targets.
Huddle Up: Carter still has some upside as a RB3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams going forward, but he got off to a rough start here. The Jets host the Patriots in Week 2.

New York Jets RB Michael Carter rushed 10 times for a team-high 52 yards in a 23-14 preseason win over the Green Bay Packers Saturday, Aug. 21.
Huddle Up: Carter made a case to open the year as the top option in the New York backfield, but his production did come later in the contest. He appears to offer the most upside among the current group of backs, it remains to be seen how the carries will be distributed. Carter should be treated as a RB3 candidate for now.

New York Jets RB Michael Carter has been working with the first-team offense during the early portion of training camp.
Huddle Up: The Jets do not have a clear favorite for the starting running back job, but Carter is receiving the first opportunity to earn the job. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy running back if he wins the job.

New York Jets RB Michael Carter could push for the starting running back job if he performs well during training camp and the preseason, in the opinion of JetsWire's Tyler Calvaruso.
Huddle Up: The Jets do not have a clear No. 1 running back, so Carter could have a chance to start as a rookie. Fantasy players can monitor the situation during the preseason because Carter can be a No. 3 or No. 4 back if he starts.

New York Jets RB Michael Carter busted 29 runs of at least 20 yards over his final two seasons at North Carolina - the most in college football over that time - according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Carter led Division I with 18 such runs in 2020 despite carrying the ball only 156 times, which works out to a big run once every 11.5 rushing attempts. He finds himself in a very favorable situation in New York, as Tevin Coleman and La'Mical Perine are the only players that appear to be real threats to his potential workload. His biggest question figures to be whether or not he can hold up to a 200-touch workload in the NFL at 200 pounds. If he can, he should be able to serve as a solid committee back for the Jets and a strong RB3 for fantasy owners.
