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 NorthJersey.com 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.

The Jets have selected RB Michael Carter with the 2nd pick of Round 4 in the 2021 NFL Draft. As a true freshman, Carter led the Tar Heels in yards per carry (5.8) and TDs (8). He finished his 4-year career with 3,403 rushing yards, playing the past 2 in a near-even timeshare with Javonte Williams. At only 5’8 and 201 pounds, Carter doesn’t have workhorse potential. But he projects as a strong receiver (82 career catches) with excellent elusiveness and agility in all facets. A role with ~15 touches per game could certainly put him in the future RB2 discussion. Landing with the Jets presents obvious opportunity. The biggest challenges already on the roster look like Tevin Coleman and La'Mical Perine.

Jets RB La'Mical Perine has tested positive for COVID and will miss Sunday's finale vs. the Patriots. With RB Frank Gore (lung) also out, the Jets are down to RBs Ty Johnson and Josh Adams. Expect Johnson to lead a committee on the ground and handle most of the passing-down work, putting him in the RB3 mix.

2:12pm EST 12/28/20

Jets RB Frank Gore will miss the regular-season finale against the Patriots because of a lung contusion he suffered in Sunday's win over the Browns, according to Eric Allen of Jets 360. His absence leaves the backfield to rookie La'Mical Perine and Ty Johnson. Neither will be an exciting option, but it's an upside matchup against a New England D that has struggled vs. the run all year.

6:12am EST 12/28/20

Jets RB Frank Gore left in the 4th quarter of Sunday's win over the Browns with a chest injury. We'll see about the severity this week. Rookie La'Mical Perine handled the team's final 4 RB carries after Gore left. Perine drew just 2 first-half carries in his return from a high-ankle sprain, vs. Ty Johnson's 2 and Gore's 6. Johnson and Perine would likely split work if Gore can't go in Week 17. Even if Gore returns, the Jets might elect to take a better look at the rookie in the regular-season finale.

The Jets have activated RB La’Mical Perine from IR. He has been out since sustaining a high-ankle sprain in Week 11. The team designated him to return on Dec. 16, though, so Perine has had 2 weeks of practice to work back in. The Jets increased Perine’s work just before the injury, so we wouldn’t be surprised if he goes back to leading the backfield in touches. At the least, his return further complicates an already shared backfield in a bad offense. Avoid all Jets RBs where pssible

Jets RB La'Mical Perine (ankle) has been activated from IR. We'll see if he's ready to play against the Rams this weekend. It's unclear what kind of role the rookie would be returning to, but you should continue to avoid this backfield.

Jets RB La'Mical Perine has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain. He figures to miss multiple weeks and can be dropped from redraft rosters. Frank Gore will remain New York's lead back, with Ty Johnson and likely practice-squad call-up Josh Adams backing him up.

Jets RB La'Mical Perine was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Chargers with an ankle injury. He remained in a committee with RB Frank Gore before going down. We'll look for an update on Perine's injury.

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports that Jets RB La'Mical Perine is expected to be the "feature back" the rest of the season as the team "tries to determine if he can be a future RB1." In 4 games since Le'Veon Bell's release, Frank Gore has out-carried Perine 44 to 32. It sounds like we should project the split to shift toward the rookie going forward. We'll see exactly how big a share he gets, but New York's offensive ineptitude leaves Perine as just a RB3 or flex for now.

11:11am EST 11/1/20

Jets RB Frank Gore (hand) is active for today’s game against the Chiefs. He’s fallen behind rookie La’Mical Perine in the pecking order and isn’t a viable fantasy play.
