What You Need to Know:

  • A college teammate of Javonte Williams, Carter arrived as a Round 4 pick last year.
  • Quick and shifty, Carter excelled on a more-than-anticipated 202 opportunities.
  • Carter averaged a ho hum 4.3 YPC on 147 attempts, yet he sat 3rd among 50 RBs with 100+ carries in PFF Elusive Rating.
  • As a rusher, Carter forced a missed tackle at a higher rate than Jonathan Taylor.
  • As a receiver, Carter ranked 10th among 33 RBs in yards per route run. He posted a strong 9.0 yards per catch but did drop 5 passes.
  • Carter finished as a top-24 PPR RB 6 times.
  • The UNC product missed 3 games with a high-ankle sprain and part of another with a concussion.
  • The Jets added major backfield competition after trading up for Iowa State’s Breece Hall, an electric player with a run/catch skill set.
  • New York also added WR Garrett Wilson in Round 1. OG Laken Tomlinson and TEs Tyler Conklin and C.J. Uzomah joined in free agency.
  • NY ranked bottom-7 in yards and scoring in ’21. But this offense — in year 2 with OC Mike LaFleur — has the potential for a year 2 jump if Zach Wilson shows improvement.
  • The Athletic’s Conor Hughes writes that the Jets “always viewed” RB Michael Carter as “an ideal compliment.”

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Carter’s college tape showed he was a player to get excited about.

While undersized, his diverse skill set looked beneficial for fantasy.

And we saw that in spurts last year for a Jets squad overrun by injuries and poor QB play.

2022 brought on the arrival of a potential workhorse back in Breece Hall. We believe Carter will retain a role, especially in passing situations. But this will certainly be a key battle to watch in training camp. And there's no doubt Carter's upside isn't what it was months ago.

For now, the 2nd-year back projects as an RB4.

Jets RB James Robinson is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Bears. RBs Michael Carter, Ty Johnson and Zonovan Knight are dressed for New York. Robinson's absence is a slight boost to Carter's Week 12 fantasy stock.

Despite dealing with some injuries and a bad Jets offense, Carter averaged 4.3 yards per carry and caught 36 balls as a rookie. But the arrival of 2nd-round rookie Breece Hall figures to relegate Carter to change-of-pace duties.
