Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco is not expected to play today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It sounds like Pacheo will be active but only used in an emergency with the Chiefs having nothing to gain vs. the Chargers. RBs Clyde Edwards-Helaire and La'Mical Perine will handle backfield duties.

Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Dolphins. It’ll be his first action since suffering a high-ankle sprain back in Week 11. HC Robert Saleh said this week that Carter will play a "significant role" today. He'd averaged 13 carries and 6.2 targets across his last 6 healthy games. Don’t expect that many targets with Zach Wilson under center, but 13 carries is a fair projection. RBs Ty Johnson and La’Mical Perine are healthy scratches today, leaving Tevin Coleman and Austin Walter behind Carter.

Jets RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Saints. He's led New York's Michael Carter-less backfield with 27 carries over the past 2 weeks. With Carter still out, we're expecting La'Mical Perine to join Ty Johnson and Austin Walter in a 3-man committee this weekend. It's a situation to avoid against the league's #1 RB defense.

Jets RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He still has multiple stages of the protocol to pass through and looks unlikely to play vs. the Saints this weekend. The Jets still figure to roll with a 3-man committee with Ty Johnson, Austin Walter and La'Mical Perine. It's a backfield to avoid vs. the Saints' top-ranked RB defense.

The Jets have released RB Josh Adams. It's not a surprising drop given Adams' total lack of summer buzz, but it takes 1 player with some NFL experience out of the team's crowded backfield. We wouldn't be shocked if Adams gets a shot elsewhere, but he's not a fantasy factor until further notice.

Jets beat writer Connor Hughes of The Athletic sees the team’s backfield as a “3-man rotation.” “Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson and Michael Carter will all see their share of snaps in the regular season,” Hughes writes, “with La’Mical Perine working in as the goal-line, short-yardage back.” It’s tough to buy Perine as a factor, but a Jets RB rotation has largely been the theme all summer. Look for the situation to remain fluid throughout the year.

Andy Vasquez of projects RB Ty Johnson as a cut in his admittedly "far too early" 53-player roster projection. "[Tevin] Coleman will likely get the majority of the snaps, but there will be plenty of opportunities for [Michael] Carter and another young back," Vasquez writes. "[Josh] Adams, [La'Mical] Perine and Johnson will battle for the final two spots at this position." We're not particularly excited about any player in what figures to line up as a committee but will be tracking the competition through summer.

The Athletic's Connor Hughes believes it "might not be long before [Jets RB Michael] Carter starts to see the lion’s share of reps." The rookie has had a "promising" spring and early summer, according to Hughes, and looks like the most explosive and best receiver of the Jets' RBs. Hughes does add that the Jets "prefer a running-back-by-committee approach, so guys like Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson and/or La'Mical Perine will be involved. But Carter is the most exciting of the group and has a chance to emerge as a weekly fantasy starter this year.
