Shark Bites

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.

Recent Shark Bites

The Jets have placed RB Michael Carter on IR. He sprained an ankle last week and has been expected to miss at least 2 games. This designation means Carter will miss at least 3 contests. He can now return for the Week 15 rematch with Miami at the earliest.

Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Texans. The rookie is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with his high-ankle sprain. His absence leaves New York’s backfield to Ty Johnson and Tevin Coleman. We’re expecting carries to be split fairly evenly, but Johnson should dominate passing-game work.

Jets RB Michael Carter is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with a "low-grade" high-ankle sprain, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. So the rookie figures to miss Week 12 vs. the Texans and Week 13 vs. the Eagles. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 14 vs. the Saints. Carter is worth stashing on fantasy benches for the stretch run. His absence leaves Ty Johnson and Tevin Coleman as New York's top 2 RBs. Carries could be split fairly evenly between them, but Johnson should dominate pass-catching work and is the superior fantasy play.

Jets RB Michael Carter injured his ankle in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. He's officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for an update.

Update: Carter has been downgraded to out.

Jets RB Michael Carter is listed 4th (alongside Josh Adams) on the Week 1 depth chart. It's Tevin Coleman 1st, La'Mical Perine 2nd and Ty Johnson 3rd. We never fully buy into these depth charts -- but it's notable after Carter appeared to at least be behind Coleman this preseason. The rookie can't be trusted in Week 1 fantasy lineups. If you need to dabble in this backfield, Coleman is your best bet.
